Do you need to create a grid of sampling points over a land plot or a timber stand? Would you like your iPhone, iPad (with GPS) or iPod touch (with GPS) to help guide you to one of the grid points or along the boundary of the land plot?

The Grid & Stakeout app will let you digitize Points and Areas on your iOS device as well as create grid points or grid lines over one of the Area Features. Then you may use your iPhone, iPad (with GPS) or iPod touch (with GPS) to help guide you to a grid point or along a grid line. You may turn off the navigation beeps if you wish.

The Point Stakeout function provided by this app can help you approach a grid point or a node on an area boundary. The Line Stakeout function can help guide you along an area boundary or one of the grid lines.

You may specify the distance unit (metric or English) and choose between Azimuth and Bearing for displaying angles. When GPS is turned on, you may pick the GPS location as a node for your Area Feature or the distance/area measurements.

You will be able to export the Features and coordinates to a PDF file. This app will let you view the PDF file it has created and also any PDF file you have copied into the Documents folder of this app. It will also let you email the PDF files (*.pdf) and job file (*.pmp).

Please note: Location data depends on the GPS receiver used. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. This app will let you easily toggle the built-in GPS on or off. It comes with a built-in help file.
