Thank you, Clueless Windows SysAdmins

Dear "special" sysadmins that setup the Win2008 server running a GIS system, Oracle database and some other uber-important data that no-one could/would give us access to.... Thank you for allowing anonymous FTP high enough in the directory tree to allow us access to all of the images and data needed.

Now if only the guys doing the GIS survey had used a GPS enabled camera that would have EXIF tagged all the images with useful images. Instead, we'll sync up with the database we just sucked down as well. The killer thing to me is, they put > 100k (quantity, bit size) jpg's in the same directory. I like to "tree" such things.. but hey.. I'm old skool.

The JPGs are probably referenced in the GIS database. There may be an attribute that gives the path to the JPG related to the point. It's a technique that predates geotagging in EXIF.
