Juniper Systems Mobile Connect

As you know, Microsoft stopped supporting Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC) with the Windows 10 version 1703 update. In a previous post we mentioned a workaround and alternative file transfer methods. 7/5/17

Recently Juniper Systems announced a software program that provides an easier way to transfer files from a Windows Mobile device to a Windows 10 PC via USB.

You could test Mobile Connect with your Windows Mobile or Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 device during the free 7-day trial that Juniper System offers to see if they are compatible.


After creating an inside buffer, what’s the remaining acreage?

Suppose you have created an inside buffer for an Area Feature. When you select the inside buffer and click on Measure Area, the pop up window will show the acreage of the “Excluded Area“, which is the remaining acreage of the original Area Feature.

Does PC-GIS produce Geo-reference PDF for use in Avenza?

Our apps do not generate nor work with geo-referenced PDF maps.

You could give this site a try:

Make sure you upload both the .tif file and the .twf file to the converter.
You could request a sample converted file first, which does not count toward your three free conversions.

Is there a way to tell that we have used the Offset function to move a feature?

When you double-click on a Feature, the Feature Properties window will pop up. If the Feature was offset, you will see a button labeled “With Offset“. Otherwise, that same button would be labeled “No Offset”.

Also, if a Point Feature has been offset, you can see its actual GPS location indicated by a tiny red node. To have the nodes displayed, click on the Display/Hide Nodes icon on the tool bar.

Can you tell us how to import photos from ARCGIS sites?

In what format are the photos you’ve downloaded from ARCGIS?

Please keep in mind that you can only import geo-referenced images into a Job in CMT-Forester 10.

To import a GeoTiff image, you will need the corresponding .tiff and the .tfw files.

To import a GeoJpeg image, you will need the corresponding .jpg and the jgw files.

To import a MRSID image, you will need the .sid and sdw files.

If you wish to load an image that has not been geo-referenced, you could use CMT-Forester 10 to geo-reference that image if you have the coordinates for three or more reference points on that image.

NMEA compliant survey software for building topo maps

“We are currently looking for some nmea compliant survey software to build topo maps for farm tile drainage systems.”

We have NMEA compliant GPS/GIS mapping and data collection software for use on Windows PC, Windows Mobile and Apple iPad/iPhone devices.

1. PC-MAPPER is for use on a Windows 7, 8 or 10 desktop, notebook or tablet device. A DEMO version is available.

2. Some users use the PC-MAPPER in the office and our FieldCE Survey on a Windows CE PDA in the field. If you have a WEHH Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 or Windows Mobile 6.5.compatible PDA, you could try the DEMO version for FieldCE Survey.

3. Our iCMTGIS 3 and iCMTGIS PRO can be used on an iPad or iPhone device. These apps are sold via the Apple App Store.

The accuracy of your work will depend on the accuracy and precision of the GPS receiver used.
