How to advance to the next point to stake using iCMTGIS Pro?

“I remember in CMT Field Survey on the PC-5 I could select Next and it would take me to the next point to stake. It doesn’t seem to function
this way in iCMTGIS Pro. In iCMTGIS Pro, there’s a Node field with an arrow, but it doesn’t advance the user to the next point to stake.”

In iCMTGIS PRO and some of our other apps, the Point Stakeout function will let you stake any Point Feature or any node on a Line or Area Feature. For a Line Feature you can enter the Node number in the Node field, or tap the arrow to advance to the next node on the Line or Area Feature.

Therefore, to stake one Point Feature after another, you could first join the Point Features into a Line Feature in the order that you wish to stake them, and then select the Line Feature as the target for the Point Stakeout function. For example, to visit the plots sequentially while cruising a stand of timber, you could join the plot centers into a Line Feature then make use of the Point Stakeout function.
