After the last app update, the text file export contains LLA instead of XYZ coordinates.

“I have your full license for ICMT Pro but after the latest update when I take my readings with the Arrow Gold and I sent the text file to me it is in coordinates and not decimal, i need the decimal format to use this data within Pix4D.”

Internally the app saves the position data in WGS84(1150) datum and LLA coordinate system. Your coordinate system settings determine how data is presented in Map View and Sheet View.

Please add the built-in Position_X, Position_Y and Elev_Z Attributes to your Point Topic by using Edit on the Topic menu. After switching to UTM, you should see X,Y,Z values in Sheet View, which you can export to a text file.

As mentioned in our 8/16/16 and 9/19/16 blog posts, you can save the app’s configuration file before an app update then restore the configuration afterwards. The configuration file name for iCMTGIS PRO is cmtgispro.cfg.

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.


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.

How to recover custom configuration after updating iCMTGIS III

“I’ve been puzzled by question that whereas iCMTGIS iii keeps its settings every time we updated it, a few settings have gone to the default (for us: Elevation and Angle, and Data Collection). Can we have:
1) The configuration not touched during update (unless configuration parameters changed);
2) Float number for the Local Time Offset in Data Collection?
Otherwise, the iCMTGIS-iii has been working fine.”

The settings for Elevation and Angle and Data Collection are saved in the file named “cmtgis3.cfg“.

After setting up the desired parameters, you can copy cmtgis.cfg to your PC for safekeeping.

After a software update, the app must go back to the default system configuration, but you can restore your custom configuration.

To do so, please first run the app and open a Job so you will be able to access the app’s Documents folder.

Then close the app by double-clicking the Home button and then flicking the app screen upward and out of sight.

Now copy your custom cmtgis3.cfg back to the app’s Documents folder to overwrite the default configuration file. You should see your custom settings for Elevation and Angle and Data Collection.

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.

iCMTGISPRO updated to version 1.0.3

This release of iCMTGIS PRO fixes a bug that results in a discrepancy in the position displayed in the Position and Quality window.
