Recording the track or the flight path

For certain field applications it is desirable to record the track of where you’ve been on the ground or in the air. You know that you could use your iCMTGIS or iGPSGIS to record such a track as a Line Feature. What if you also need to record other Features in addition to your  track?

With iCMTGIS you could store “nested” Point Features without interrupting the Line Feature for the track.

With iGPSGIS, you could stop the recording of the track to record the other Features then record a new Line Feature for the next segment of the track. Later you could use PC-GIS to join the separate line segments together.

The iCMTGIS II and iGPSGIS II to be released in the near future will provide a dedicated function to record the GPS track in the background, regardless of what Features you record in the foreground. It will also let you toggle the track recording on or off as you please.

For airborne applications, we recommend the CMT PC-MAPPER AI 4.0, which will run on a Windows PC, notebook PC or tablet PC, and provides functions specifically designed for airborne surveys and data collection.
