We are building a mobile app for traffic sign data collection. One property, among others, a field worker has to collect is the direction(Azimuth) of a traffic sign. Would it be possible somehow to get this item of data into the form from the device Built-in capability ? any alternative suggetion how to makes this task easier to end user?
AFAIK Mobile App uses only the GPS module (Location API). If I understand correctly your request, you'd like to be able to retrieve a direction based on how is the mobile device rotated and positioned, something like augmented reality, correct? This is usually done by combining information from the geomagnetic field sensor and the accelerometer. Unfortunately, none of them are currently considered by the Mobile App. But it may be interesting to register this as a Product Idea.
