Rock Mapper is using a dedicated cloud-sync service to transfer files from your iPad to your computer and vice versa. It works similar to other well known file-hosting services such as Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive and is supported on all major platforms (Linux, Windows, Mac). All data can be accessed in the browser and is also automatically forwarded to any computer that's connected to the Rock Mapper cloud account. All you need is a Rock Mapper ID, Site ID and Password which is provided with any 3 or 12 months Rock Mapper subscription.
Rock Mapper's cloud-sync services run on a virtual private server (VPS) in order to guarantee safe and reliable access to your data. By default all data is hosted in Australia (server location Sydney), but we also have servers available in the United States of America and Germany.
The main purpose of the cloud-sync account is streamlined data transfer and easy collaboration.
Cloud-sync is used to...
Georeferenced face photographs, raw mapping data and auto-generated mapping and sampling reports are uploaded from Rock Mapper to your cloud account and forwarded to any computer that is connected to it. All new data will then automatically appear on your desktop computer (or even several computers) within a few seconds. All face data are stored in commonly used file formats within individual ZIP files.
Reference point coordinates and QAQC data are stored in two CSV files in the SYNC folder. You can simply open these CSV files with MS Excel and remove, edit or add items.
By tapping the Download button in Rock Mapper, the user can download new Reference Points / Laser Stations, Sample QAQC Data as well as existing Projects.
