How to determine the direction of a straight line in iCMTGIS PRO?

Line Segment Label

A number of our apps provide a function in the Feature Properties screen for labeling a line segment. In some apps, such as iCMTGIS III and iCMTGIS PRO, after selecting the line segment, you would tap on the “Show Label” tab then mark the check box for “Show Segment label“. In some other apps, such as Wetland – Stakeout and Deed Calls Pro, the “Show Segment label” check box is in the main Feature Properties screen.

With the Angle System set to “Bearing“, the line segment label will show something like SE. This indicates that the line is pointing to southeast.

iCMTGIS III and iCMTGIS PRO also provide the View Deed Calls function. In the Deed Calls screen, the starting node of the active line segment is indicated with a green node. In addition, the bearing of the straight line segment is displayed under Calls.

Tutorial for using Deed Calls Pro to enter multiple deeds in the same job file

MDC23“I’ve been researching Deed Call Pro for the ability to be able to plot multiple deeds on the same job and even after looking over the help file I can’t see it. This seems to be a problem that others have encountered and I have seen one answer that may make me understand it when looking thru the menu and sub menus but right now I can’t do that. I will purchase the app as it seems to be the best option in the end. It would be helpful if there were video tutorials or slide show with circles and arrows.”

Here you go – “How to Draw Multiple Deeds Using Deed Calls Pro

P.S. Even before we posted the video, same user reported, “I’m rocking it.  . . . Pretty painless once I decided to fork over the cash.”

The Create Deed Calls function in Farming GPS GIS II/III and Forester GPS GIS II/III work in the same way.

Oops! Default angle and distance label positions switched

“In Mississippi, the normal order of calls in a deed is to have the direction of the call first and then the distance. For example; thence North 45 degrees 22 minutes 35 seconds East 500.00 feet to an iron pin; In the calls input section of your program you ask for the distance first and then the direction. It would read easier to input the first thing you read in the call first and then the next thing you read which would be the distance. Also in Mississippi, in the labeling of a line the direction goes on top of the line and the distance goes on the bottom. It is that same way in every program I have ever purchased regardless of what state or region. . . . I like your program and do not mean to seem critical.”

Thank you for your comments and valuable suggestions. We have modified Deed Calls & Stakeout, Deed Calls Pro and Deed Calls – Area – perimeter to incorporate the requested changes. Please look for a software update in the near future.
