Once the location is selected you can start taking license plate images.

Before you begin

What you should know

The Viewfinder screen displays a live feed from the camera. Once you have taken a picture of the license plate and entered the license plate number and state, you can then save the license plate information to an XML file. Each capture produces its own XML file.

    The Save button is available once you have entered the plate value.

    The state value is the value you entered in the application configuration file.
