“Farming GPS GIS II” provides GPS data collection and mapping functionality for use on the iPad. It will let you use a GPS receiver to map a farm tract, a timber tract or any other land parcel as well as point and line features of interest. 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 will also be able to enter formulas to compute values derived from the recorded data. For example, when you enter the yield for a farm plot, the yield per acre can be automatically calculated based on the acreage of the plot.
You will be able to export the feature data as Shapefiles.
If your device has GPS capability, the Point Stakeout function could help you locate an old land mark, and the Line Stakeout function could help you lay out a long pipeline.
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.
