Photographing Targets with Large Barcode Label

There are multiple ways to photograph targets using the Orion Mobile Application. This help section describes how to take photographs of targets relying completely on the data encoded within the Large Barcode Label for information on the athlete, stage, and stage number.

These instructions are intended for Statistical Officers (SO) who will be taking photographs of Mobile Friendly targets. Target photographs should primarily be taken while they are still hung on the target frames, before athletes remove them, by the Range Officer. However, occasionally it is necessary for the SO to re-take a target's photograph. It is important to take these photographs in good lighting, outdoors is best.

These instructions assume the Statistical Officer has already added him or herself to the match and correctly set his or her roles. See Creating an Orion Match to Score Mobile-Friendly Targets for more information.

NOTE, These instructions may be used only with the Large Barcode Labels, whose QR code contains information about the athlete, stage, and stage number. If the target is missing the Large Barcode Label, or the QR Code is damaged, follow the instructions in Photographing Targets via the Squadding List instead.
