I thought FEMA didn't want processed photos? Turn the GPS in the camera on, take the photos, and upload them to their online system. No watermarking or imprinting of the north arrow.

If a group asks for unprocessed JPEGs, it really is an oxymoron.  JPEG photos are processed to predetermined color saturation, white balance, tone curve, sharpening, and color space and they are compressed.  Sorry, it always humors me when I hear people say that.  It is similar when I have people ask for a digital photo at 300 dpi.

Correct for FEMA.  All the post-processing we did before using Robogeo to batch process files to add the North arrow, the lat/longs dates, locations etc. on the viewed imaged are not wanted now. Simply choose the desired images and use the FEMA uploading software. Much easier now.

The AP Mission Task Guide still mentions all of that, and new APs are I guess still expected to learn the Robogeo system, in case customers other than FEMA do desire certain data to be watermarked again.

I like to mess with people who ask for unprocessed photos by sending in FITS format.

I can open them up.  Well simple ones, not complex files :)

Seeing as my minimum photographic aperture is 8", and I prefer to use 14" class aperture, I have lots of FITS sitting around!

How are you supposed to do photometry on JPEG?

Nice.  The same method when people do densitometry on saturated image areas <ugh>.  :)

Heh, you wish...
Well, I have worked with a 1.8m aperture a couple times, and the data there came out as FITS too.  It was a pain because you had to get there a couple hours before taking shots to hook up the liquid N2

OK, enough of the Ranger Corps crap. Clean it up or lock it up.

ETA: Just removed them. Nothing to see here.
