Where can I find the Shapefiles on my ipad after they have been exported?

The Features in each Topic layer are exported to one set of Shapefiles. The exported Shapefiles are stored in the Documents folder for the app (e.g. Forester GPS GIS II, Farming GPS GIS II, iCMTGIS II, iGPSGIS II, Utility Data Collection).

Before exporting the Shapefiles, please check the iCloud setting in your app. If the checkbox for “Job” is marked, please unmark it. Otherwise the app will export the Shapefiles to iCloud storage instead of the local folder.

To get to the Documents Folder:
1. Sync your device with your PC/MAC via iTunes.
2. In iTunes select your device then select “Apps” . Scroll down to the Shared Documents section and select your CMT iOS application program.
3. You will see the files that are stored in the Documents folder for the app on your iPAD (or iPhone), including any Shapefiles files.
You can highlight the files you want to save to your PC then click the Save To button and select a folder on your PC to copy the files to that folder.

Remember to copy all the Shapefiles (*.shp, *.shx, *.prj, *.dbf) for each Topic.

iCMTGIS III, Farming GPS GIS III and Forester GPS GIS III will let you export the Shapefiles for a Topic to a sub-folder in the Documents folder, making it a bit easier to find all the files for a Topic in one place.
