New Release: Landscape & Stakeout app 1.0.0

PathIf you would like to make a quick layout design for your property, the Landscape & Stakeout for iPAD app can help you create geo-referenced land feature shapes and also add scalable landscape layout shapes. With this app it is easy to put in a circular vegetable plot on your farm if you choose to do so. You will be able to put in a free-form sand pit on a golf course design. You will also be able to digitize a curved path with specified width.

A typical scenario of using this app involves the following steps:

1. Import the boundary shape or digitize it within this app.

2. Add Landscape Shapes to the landscape mapping job. Reposition and/or resize the landscape shapes as necessary.

3. Layout pipes and sprinklers.

4. Export the completed layout design to a PDF file or a DXF file.
