It was suggested that each location is given a number. Use these numbers to keep track of your photos.
You have collected information about the location of your photos. The first thing you need to do is:
Identify where the working image files will be stored on a computer. Photo images can take up a large space on hard drives, so make sure these photos will not be deleted in a cleanup.
Download images to a hard drive and make a backup of the images to a second drive. The backup file name should include a date. If you have used a GPS handset make sure you download the GPS coordinates with the images. Make at least one CD backup and label it with a permanent pen.
Produce electronic versions of all the data collected. Recorded details about locations can be on a spreadsheet. If maps are not already in electronic form scan the maps, making sure that each location has a number.
Place all paperwork into a labeled file and place itin a known and safe location.
A big thank you to all our kind sponsors, without you our work would not be possible.
