How to include Latitude and Longitude for text file import

iCMTGIS III, iCMTGIS PRO, Utility Data Collection, Farming GPS GIS III and Forester GPS GIS III will let you import data into a Point Feature Topic via a text file. The text file can include latitude and longitude values. How these values should be presented in the text file depends on whether you have selected Degrees or the DMS format as the active angles unit in the app.

With the Degrees format, simply present the LAT LON values as decimal numbers. West is designated with a minus sign ( – ). For example:

30.384550
-87.278860

With the DMS format, make sure the Degree unit is represented by ^, the Minute unit is represented by ‘ and the Second unit is represented by “. For example:

44^32’40.43″ N
123^06’50.65” W

To have these values interpreted as LAT LON coordinates, assign the field names “Latitude” and “Longitude”, respectively.

Generally, you can generate an Export Preview for a similar Point Topic to see how an import text file should be formatted for the options selected.

Where can I rent high-precision GPS receivers?

We are aware of a couple places that rent EOS Arrow and SXBlue Platinum GNSS receivers.

Can only a subset of the Attribute fields be exported to text file?

Yes.

Some of our apps (such as iCMTGIS III, iCMTGIS PRO, Utility Data Collection, Farming GPS GIS III and Forester GPS GIS III) provide the ability to export the Feature data from a Point Topic to a text file. You can go into the Sheet Setup screen under Edit Topic and un-mark the check box for “Visible” corresponding to the unwanted Attributes of the active Topic. Then those Attribute fields will not be exported to the text file.

After creating an inside buffer, what’s the remaining acreage?

Suppose you have created an inside buffer for an Area Feature by using the Create Buffer function in iCMTGIS PRO, Farming GPS GIS II/III or Forester GPS GIS II/III,.

When you select the inside buffer in the Job map and tap on Feature Properties, you can tap the Area/Length tab to view the acreage of the buffer. On the displayed screen the “Excluded Area” field shows the remaining acreage of the original Area Feature.

Forester GPS GIS III updated to 1.0.2

Forester GPS GIS III release 1.0.2 is now available for download from the App Store. The updated app will automatically save the Job data after you have added a Feature. Anytime you wish to save the Job data, you can still use the Job – Save function to do so.

Is there a way to tell if we have used the Offset function to move a feature?

In  the iCMTGIS II/III/PRO, iGPSGIS II, Forester GPS GIS II/III, Farming GPS GIS II/III, Wetland – Stakeout and Utility Data Collection apps, the Feature Properties window provides the button for entering or viewing the offset information.

Double-click on a Feature to display the Feature Properties window. If the Feature was offset, you will see the button labeled “With Offset“. Otherwise, that same button would be labeled “No Offset“.

When a Feature is offset, what shows in the Job is the displaced Feature. The offset values provide information about the displacement from the actual GPS location.
