What is it about?

“Forester GPS GIS II” provides tools for estimating basal area per acre for a timber stand as well as GPS data collection and mapping functions for use on the iPad. It will let you use a GPS receiver to map a timber stand or any other land parcel then create grid points over the area. You can also create features by importing feature data in Shapefiles or DXF format, by manual digitization or by entering deed calls. The acreage and perimeter of an area feature will be promptly computed. You can easily divide or combine the land plots. You will be able to record attribute information for each geographic feature. You also will be able to export the feature data as Shapefiles.

App Store Description

“Forester GPS GIS II” provides tools for estimating basal area per acre for a timber stand as well as GPS data collection and mapping functions for use on the iPad. It will let you use a GPS receiver to map a timber stand or any other land parcel then create grid points over the area. You can also create features by importing feature data in Shapefiles or DXF format, by manual digitization or by entering deed calls. The acreage and perimeter of an area feature will be promptly computed. You can easily divide or combine the land plots. You will be able to record attribute information for each geographic feature. You also will be able to export the feature data as Shapefiles.

If your device has GPS capability, the Point Stakeout function could help you locate the cruise points, and the Line Stakeout function could help you stay on a transect line.

Please note: The accuracy of the location data depends on the GPS receiver used. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. The app lets you easily toggle the GPS on or off.

Detailed Function List:
* Map Points, Lines and Areas using GPS data collection functions.
* Tag the Features with pre-defined Attribute/Values.
* Work in LLA, UTM, SPC or NEZ coordinate system.
* Import/export the Features and Attributes from/to Shapefiles or DXF.
* Precisely digitize Points, Lines and Areas over the built-in Map.
* Create a Point from the entered address or coordinates.
* Create new Points by using the Traverse function.
* Create a Point or record a node by picking the GPS location.
* Create a Line or an Area by entering Deed Calls.
* Move existing nodes to fine-tune the map drawing.
* Attach one or more photos to any Feature.
* View position, length and area values for the Features.
* Work with Metric and English units and BAF values.
* Create grid points or grid lines over an Area Feature.
