A GPS footometer app on iPhone or iPad

“I am using an SXBlue II GNSS receiver and I was told by SXBlue that your IGPSGIS II software would act as a footometer. I want to drop an point and drive down the road and have a running footometer. (eg.. Drop a point and drive 842_ and have the program show me a running total, so I know where to stop and drop a stake at the 842 mark) I would like to know if your program does this before I purchase it.”

There are a couple different ways to do this.

1. The GPS Data Collection function in iGPSGIS II, iCMTGIS II and Utility Data Collection provides the option to record a node on a Line Feature by distance. You would set the distance interval to be 842 ft for recording a Line Feature along the road. Then at every 842 ft, a  node will be recorded. At that moment, you can pause the Data Collection function to drop a stake at that location then resume the Line Feature data collection by distance. iGPSGIS II, iCMTGIS II and Utility Data Collectionare professional GPS data collection software apps that you could use to record other Point, Line and Area Features with Attributes.

2. The Stakeout iCMT app will let you digitize the road and select it for Line Stakeout. Set your starting station to be 0, then drive along the road. The app will show you your Distance from the starting position. In this case, you will need to mind the multiples of 842 ft yourself to drop the stakes. If your CMTINC app provides the Stakeout function (such as F arming GPS GIS, Forester GPS GIS, Deed Calls & Stakeout, Partition & Stakeout, Buffer & Stakeout, or the Contour – Volume – Stakeout due to be released soon), then you could make use of it in the same way.
