The expo website has a big section under 'expofiles' that is not part of the version control repositories. This section describes how to move files into that area. It supports 2 basic methods of upload:
In both cases you need to know the expo password.
In the former case nothing else needs doing. In the second case an admin has to move the files to the correct final location, so remember to tell someone you've done it.
Note that uploading photos does not automatically update the view at http://expo.survex.com/photos/. An update script needs to be run. This should run once/day around midnight UTC, but may be broken. Prod a web admin if nothing is updated by the next morning..
On Linux, scp/sftp and rsync are command line tools, but WIndows users may find it much easier to use Filezilla, an FTP client which also works with the sftp protocol. See Filezilla Project.
Works on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android. This is a firefox browser plugin that enables FTP/SFTP uploads using just your browser.
Works on Windows (using winscp), Linux (using scp), and no doubt mac and android with other tools. If you have Windows 10 and have installed bash, then you can use scp.
The above FireFTP is just one example of a tool that does this job
directory: /home/expo/expofiles/photos/2017/YourName server: expo.survex.com user: expo with the usual expo password protocol: sftp or scpOr for GPS tracks, do
directory: /home/expo/expofiles/gpslogs/2017/YourName server: expo.survex.com user: expo with the usual expo password protocol: sftp or scp
Obviously replace 'YourName' with your actual name (no spaces!)
If you don't have winscp installed you can get it from here: http://winscp.net/eng/index.php

This method can only upload to one special 'uploads' directory. Ask someone to move your uploaded files to the final location. But you may not need any extra software.
This is the upload dir: http://expo.survex.com/expofiles/uploads/
You can use 'open as webfolder' on IE, or install this: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/open-as-webfolder/ on firefox, you will get a pop-up box asking for authenticaion for 'expo-uploads'. The user is 'expo', the password is the usual one. Once done you can just copy files in.
Make a directory like photos/2015/YourName so we know what's been uploaded.
Command-line people can use the 'cadaver' client which is even available for windows too: http://www.phtagr.org/2009/04/01/cadaver-for-windows/
They both give you an 'explorer-like' interface (although winscp can give you a norton-commander-style 2-pane UI as well).
