All you need is an Imago Mapper license and a mobile phone, or tablet.
Capturing your faces
Login into Imago mobile and select the corresponding Imago Mapper profile: SC_UG_Demo in this case.

Create the collection, and assign the corresponding Workspace/Dataset (1), assign the Imagery type (2), and the photograph identifier (3) as you normally do on Imago Mobile. For more info about how to capture images with Imago mobile, you can visit this article.

As an option to georeference the Underground Face you can enter a Survey Station (4), and a Distance (5), Azimuth (6), and Inclination (7) for that photo identifier.
Then, you can go ahead and capture the photograph of the underground face using your mobile phone or tablet.

This is a setup that you can build using Lumecubes, a phone holder, and a tripod to obtain consistent images in the Underground.
Once the photograph is captured you can select the mapping option:

And select the polygon attribute you want to map (these ones are previously defined on the Capture Profile).

Then, using the touch screen you can start mapping the different units. The cell density is adjustable so you can add more or less detail to the mapping.

You can then repeat the procedure for the different faces in the collection.
Using your images
Once you've finished capturing photographs they will be uploaded into Imago Portal, where you will be able to visualize them in the corresponding e Workspace/Dataset.

Your face Images and the corresponding mapping images will be available in the Imago Portal for you to access them at any time, from anywhere.
And, you will be also able to bring them inside of leapfrog, Vulcan, or any other modelling software.
