Does the deed call and stakeout app have all the features of both applications?

The Deed Calls & Stakeout app will let you enter deed calls to draw a deed plot. Then you could use the Point Stakeout function to help to get to any node on the boundary of the deed plot. Or, you could use the Line Stakeout function to help you stay close to the boundary line while walking around the property.

The Deed Calls & Stakeout app only works with the nodes in a deed plot.

On the other hand, the Stakeout iCMT app will let you add Points, Lines and Areas manually or import them from Shapefiles.


PC software compatible with iCMTGIS PRO

“I have purchased iCMTGIS Pro and like the APP, works excellent with EOS’s Arrow Gold. My workstation is PC based. What product should I purchase for that … so that I may work with the data I collected with my iPad.”

Although a number of our PC software programs can work with the .pmp job files created by iCMTGIS PRO, PC-GIS X program is the PC software that is fully compatible with iCMTGIS PRO (as well as iCMTGIS III, Forester GPS GIS III and Farming GPS GIS III).

iCMTGIS PRO, iCMTGIS III, Forester GPS GIS III and Farming GPS GIS III employ the newer enhanced Feature List structure, which will let you assign different symbols for the various Values defined for an Attribute. For example, for the Species Attribute of the Tree Topic, you could assign a particular symbol for all Pine trees and a different symbol for all Oak trees. PC-GIS X also provides this capability.

In addition, the Sheet View in these apps will let you select from a drop-down list populated with the various Values defined for an Attribute field. PC-GIS X also provides this capability.

Does iCMTGIS PRO accept the Datum – Nad83 CSRS epoch 2010?

Datum – Nad83 CSRS epoch 2010 is the same as NAD83(2011), which we have added to the current release of iCMTGIS PRO.

Please tap on Menu then select Setup.

Select Coordinate System and select NAD83(2011) and the distance unit you will be using.

Staking out contour lines

“i am looking for an app that will allow me to find and walk a contour line so i can mark it. Will the coconut – volume-stakeout app be the one i need?”

Do you have the contour lines as Shapefiles? If so, you can import them into the Stakeout iCMT app. Then you could select one of the contour lines and use the Line Stakeout function to walk and mark the contour line.

The Contour – Volume – Stakeout app provides the stakeout functions as well as the ability to create the contour lines for an area if you have the elevation data for many points scattered throughout the area. It does not appear this applies in your case.

Please note that the accuracy of your work will depend on the GPS receiver used. If you require good accuracy, then you will need to get a high-precision GPS receiver (such as the iSXBlue II or an EOS Arrow) to do the stakeout.

Also, please keep in mind that a set of Shapefiles containing too many contour lines can overload the system memory of your device.

Iphone 6s Plus iCMTGIS PRO syncing problem

“I purchased the ICMTPROGIS Version 1.0.3 for my Iphone 6s for use with an Arrow Gold RTK receiver. I set it up and everything is running fine except, I cannot figure out how to upload .SHP files or basemaps to the ICMTPROGIS program. None of the instructions for using Itunes or Icloud to import files work. I can export data files that I have collected via email fine, but I cannot figure out where these files are stored on Icloud. I have set up Icloud drive to store my .SHP files on, but these do not show up on the ICMTPROGIS app when I go to job, import shapefiles.”

Our apps will let you store job data files in iCloud, but they don’t not support the iCloud Drive.

In iCMTGIS PRO, under Setup – iCloud, if you have marked any of the check boxes, then those files will be stored in iCloud.

To use iTunes to transfer the files to your PC, you will need to first unmark the check boxes so the files will go back into the local documents folder on your device.

iCMTGIS PRO updated to version 1.0.4

In version 1.0.4 of iCMTGIS PRO we added a couple additional datum selections: WGS84(1674)/ITRF08 and NAD83(2011).

We have added the Epoch field to the screen that prompts you to specify the datum and coordinate system when you re-import Feature data previously exported in Excel or DXF format.

We have updated the information provided in the section titled “Set up Job & Import Feature Data” in the Help document available on the Main Menu. In particular, please read the subsections titled “Setup Coordinate System” and “Set up GPS“.

Registering Google Earth

“I’m having trouble with step 4, can you explain in a different way? I don’t quite understand it. Thanks.”

In a previous blog post we listed the steps to resolve the issue of connecting Google Earth with our PC-GIS mapping software.

Step 4 is to register the Google Earth program with your PC.

First, use the Search function on your PC to look for a file with this name:


In most cases, it will be located in this file folder on your PC:

c:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Google Earth\client\

Now use a text editor such as Notepad to open a new file.

Type this line into the text box:

“c:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Google Earth\client\googleearth.exe”

This is all one line without any breaks. You must enter it exactly as shown, including the quotation marks.

If the actual file path is

c:\Program Files\Google\Google Earth\client\googleearth.exe

then substitute this part in the above text line in Notepad.

Make a temporary folder on your PC, such as TEMP.

Save the above text file in this TEMP folder using a name that ends in .com, such as


To run this file, right-click on its name and select “Run as administrator”.
