iCMTGIS PRO updated to display geoid model used

iCMTGIS PRO is able to make use of the NGS geoid separation .bin files for converting ellipsoidal height to MSL elevation. If you are using PC-GIS, PC-GPS or PC-MAPPER, the geoid files are named *.g1 and stored in the respective program folder.

To employ a .bin or .g1 geoid file, please copy it to the documents folder for iCMTGIS PRO. Close the app then reopen the app.

In the new version 1.0.6 of iCMTGIS PRO, when you call up the Coordinate System Information screen, the app will display information about the Geoid Model used for the current location.

iCMTGIS PRO version 1.0.5 update to be ignored

iCMTGIS PRO release 1.0.5 is supposed to be able to display the (*.bin) or (*.g1) geoid separation file used for computing MSL. However, due to oversight, this capability was not included in release 1.0.5.

Please ignore the version 1.0.5 update notification and wait for version 1.0.6 to update your iCMTGIS PRO.


iCMTGIS PRO updated to version 1.0.4

In version 1.0.4 of iCMTGIS PRO we added a couple additional datum selections: WGS84(1674)/ITRF08 and NAD83(2011).

We have added the Epoch field to the screen that prompts you to specify the datum and coordinate system when you re-import Feature data previously exported in Excel or DXF format.

We have updated the information provided in the section titled “Set up Job & Import Feature Data” in the Help document available on the Main Menu. In particular, please read the subsections titled “Setup Coordinate System” and “Set up GPS“.

Deed Calls & Stakeout updated to support 64-bit architecture

The Deed Calls & Stakeout app version 1.0.5 is now ready for download.

This app has been recompiled to support the 64-bit iPad and iPhone devices.

Does iCMTGIS PRO work with iSXBlue II GNSS selected as the External GPS receiver?

isxblue-ii-gnss-512x384Yes. After establishing Bluetooth connection, select iSXBlue or GNSS Receiver as the device and com.geneq.sxbluegpssource as the protocol. Then iCMTGIS PRO can receive and parse the NMEA message stream from the GNSS receiver and display information about the GPS status.

For RTK GPS surveying, you can run the iSXBlue RTN NTRIP client app to connect to the RTK network. (link to http://www.sxbluegps.com/)

Wetland & Stakeout updated

The Wetland & Stakeout app has been updated to version 1.0.2.

This update fixes a crash problem that occurs when user taps rapidly in a drop-down list. Some users enter data intensively into a spread-sheet component and want to be able to quickly get back to the spreadsheet. Now the app will let them so do. It will also bring up the last data field accessed in the spreadsheet. If you have tapped the “Hide report form” status for a given form, the updated app will remember that.

This app differs from our other GPS/GIS apps in that it provides the user the ability to set up a custom data entry form to collect data at a particular location. The spreadsheet component can be used to advantage for recording data for diverse applications. The built-in wetland delineation data forms contain a number of spreadsheet components. In a similar way you could incorporate a spreadsheet to record observation data for fishery management, tree harvest audit, equipment rental, you name it, and put in some logic to produce the needed report form with the result of the analysis. It does take some efforts to set up the form initially, but once completed, the form can be used over and over again or easily modified.

iCMTGIS PRO updated to 1.0.2

This release of iCMTGIS PRO (version 1.0.2) fixes a few user-reported issues.

1. GPS input datum epoch was misinterpreted.
2. The HAE/MSL setting will now be saved instead of always defaulting to MSL.
3. Elevations will now display with 3 decimal digits.
4. Antenna Height under GPS Setup will be properly applied to GPS data.
