Use Case for Importing files

Posted 24 February 2014 - 11:22 AM

I'm creating an application that allows an actor to import JPEG files. The system extracts metadata from the file including GPS coordinates, displays them on a map and inserts the import into a database using SQL. All these steps occur if the actor clicks a button labeled 'import'. Is this too much for a single use case? Any suggestions?

UC-01 : Add and View JPEG file metadata

Summary: The user navigates to his or her local directory on the desktop PC and selects JPEG files to add.

Priority: Essential

Use Frequency: Expected

Main Success Scenario:
1. Choose to add JPEG files
2. Select the ‘import’ command
3. Select JPEG files to add.

Alternative Scenario Extensions:
If the user selects anything but JPEG files, then the system will suggest that only JPEG files are supported.

Shouldn't use cases be one of the first things you do? By the time you are thinking about buttons in the GUI, the time for thinking up use cases has probably passed.

Anyway, it sounds fine to me. Importing photos sounds like something the user would launch the application to do. I wouldn't break that down any further.
