Query Camera Info diagram

The QueryCameraInfo operation is a service tool that's used to query specific records or the entire digital camera database in JSON format. The digital camera database contains the specifications of digital camera sensors that are used to capture drone images.

As of ArcGIS 10.5, you must license your ArcGIS Server as an ArcGIS Image Server to use this resource.

Request parameters

The response format. The default response format is html.

Values: html | json


When you submit a request, the task assigns a unique job ID for the transaction.


"jobId": "<unique job identifier>",
"jobStatus": "<job status>"

After the initial request is submitted, you can use jobId to periodically review the status of the job and messages as described in Checking job status. Once the job has successfully completed, use jobId to retrieve the results. To track the status, you can make a request of the following form:

https://<orthomapping tools url>/QueryCameraInfo/jobs/<jobId>

When the status of the job request is esriJobSucceeded, you can access the results of the analysis by making a request of the following form:

https://<orthomapping tools url>/QueryCameraInfo/jobs/<jobId>/results/outputCameraInfo?token=<your token>&f=json

The results will be the JSON object of the camera database, containing information about the maker, model, cell size, focal length, rows, and columns.
