Using Stakeout iCMT to stakeout a property
December 5, 2014 Leave a comment
“Although the buying price for the iSXBlue II GNSS is too high for our project, I did find a company in OH, that would rent it too me for a very decent price for a week. . . . . I would like to be able to put in precalculated GPS coordinates (say about 30-50 of them, one every 5-10 meters), on the iPad, and then use the iSXBlue II GNSS and iPad to tell me when I have reached them on the property, so I can physically mark them on the ground. . . Can Stakeout iCMT communicate with the iSXBlue II for some audible or visual help when reaching a preconfigured GPS point?”
If this is the only type of project (i.e. stakeout) that you will be doing using your iPad, you could get the Stakeout iCMT app, which is listed at the Apple App Store for only 9.99.
You will be able to put in pre-calculated GPS coordinates into Stakeout iCMT on the iPad, and then use the iSXBlue II and iPad to help you physically mark them on the ground.
The steps you will be doing are:
1. Use Add Point by Coordinates to enter the latitude-longitude coordinates of the points. The accuracy of these coordinates is important.
2. Create property boundary line by using Add Line Manually and snapping to the points.
3. Use Line Stakeout to go from one node to the next on the property boundary line.
On Page 17 of the Help document you will see that you can set the distance tolerance for the app to notify you when you get within that distance from the target.
