Sequence of GPS Point Numbers

While logging GPS data for a Feature using iCMTGIS II or iGPSGIS II, the Feature ID increments automatically by 1.

If you would like to number the Features differently, you could add an Attribute for the Feature Topic and enter the ID number during data collection.

Suppose you are collecting data for points on the Topic Layer named “Point”. You could use the Edit Topic function to add a new Attribute named “Pt#” to the “Point” Topic. Then, while recording GPS data for the points, you can enter the desired point number into the “Pt#” field. When you call up Sheet View, your point numbers will be displayed under the column title “Pt#”.

If you are using a Feature List, then you could build this “Pt#” Attribute into it.
