Staking out contour lines

“i am looking for an app that will allow me to find and walk a contour line so i can mark it. Will the coconut – volume-stakeout app be the one i need?”

Do you have the contour lines as Shapefiles? If so, you can import them into the Stakeout iCMT app. Then you could select one of the contour lines and use the Line Stakeout function to walk and mark the contour line.

The Contour – Volume – Stakeout app provides the stakeout functions as well as the ability to create the contour lines for an area if you have the elevation data for many points scattered throughout the area. It does not appear this applies in your case.

Please note that the accuracy of your work will depend on the GPS receiver used. If you require good accuracy, then you will need to get a high-precision GPS receiver (such as the iSXBlue II or an EOS Arrow) to do the stakeout.

Also, please keep in mind that a set of Shapefiles containing too many contour lines can overload the system memory of your device.
