Photo-monitoring has recently become even easier with the release of a new online photo viewing service.  This latest innovation compliments Northern Agricultural Catchments Council’s (NACC’s) photo-monitoring program that utilises the smartphone app, Photomon.

Photo-monitoring is the process of using a series of images from the same location to record changes in the environment.  Over time, these photo series become more and more valuable for recording changes such as beach erosion, revegetation growth and crop health.

The new online photo-viewer has been developed to enable the images captured by Photomon programs to be easily viewed and shared. “This is a vital component of any photo-monitoring program as it allows environmental mangers easy access to information on which to base management decisions”, said Dr Payne.

Users can select a monitoring site from a map or pull-down menu, along with the orientation of interest. The service allows the resulting photo series to be viewed via manual scrolling or automatic slide show. Photo series can be filtered to show images taken over a particular period of time or at annual increments.

The new photo-viewer can currently be accessed through the Tools and Apps page of the NARvis website
