Junction View Harvest

#1 Post by adilothman » Wed Apr 15, 2009 9:11 am

Hi all,

For those living outside of KL and Singapore and have a camera handy : here's what you can potentially do in your free time. You can go shopping and finish all your money .. where's the fun in that ..??

OR, you can snap pictures of junctions in your neighbourhood. :thumbsup:

Some guidelines:

1. Take at the highest resolution setting that your camera can do.
2. Go for lowest ISO possible
3. To satisfy 2, you are recommended to take shots in broad daylight.
4. Road lanes and signages must be visible. Wawa's by roadside are optional.
5. The signages are KEY - the wordings should be in sharp focus.
6. Don't get run over by other cars.
7. Having a GPS is optional.If you dont bring a GPS along, then you MUST have Mapsource. You need to mark the junction that you took.

Once that is done, resize image to 1024x786 or 800x600. Rename jpg to JCV001 and create a waypoint named JCV001. The waypoint must be placed exactly at the intersection node.

Zip the pics and the waypoint file / gdb / gpx and send over to mymalsingmaps@gmail.com or post it on the forum (so that it appears on Papago :wink: ).

Yep. One day your son will be using the Garmin and you can go, "Look son, Daddy took that pic of that junction view" and you'd be beaming with pride .. :good:

Bro adilothman, the highest resolution on my camera is 10M so if I email, will gmail accept such a large file and I am talking about 1 pic only ... so for multiple pics :ko:

FYI Jpeg pics do not compress much more.

I would suggest that an absolute minimum acceptable resolution is pre-determine for submission of JCV. :-k

Another thing, could a guideline be posted as to what "junctions" already exist in database so it will not be replicated. =D>

You are quite right on the image size.

A resize would be necessary : maybe down to 1024 or 800x600 resolution. Ideally cropped but that would be too complicated for some.

I'll update the post to 1024. Shoot at max reso but resized to 1024. Just keep the original handy in case the Garmin team leader needs a higher resolution shots. As you know, lighting will be key and determinant factor in the quality of each pic.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Does this covers the off ramp and up ramp where there is no visible signage close to the split location?
