Background:

Field Notes is now available on the web! 

With Field Notes, you can take a note with your mobile phone while you are doing an OpenSpace walk. That note will then automatically appear at the time and location you took it in the OpenSpace capture. This allows you to add detailed image and other context to your walks, which you can then use in your workflows - punch items, observations, RFI data, and so on.

Using Field Notes, project team members can do other QA/QC and safety activities like capturing high-resolution photos on their smartphone and those photos can be annotated, intelligently tied to the Google streetview-like walk, geolocated and properly oriented.

Please note that this article shows how to use field notes on web only - for a tutorial on taking field notes in the OpenSpace mobile app, click here
