Can I load points from Shapefiles and use their Attribute/Value setup for GPS/GIS data collection in PC-MAPPER?

Yes. To collect a new point for the same job, after selecting GPS/Collect, select the job file that contains the existing points. The job file name must be of .ftr type. In other words, after importing the points from the Shapefiles into PC-MAPPER, save the job as a .ftr file.

In the data collection screen, enter the Topic Name of the Topic for the imported Points. Feature ID defaults to 001; you should change it to be the next Point number after the last existing point. You will see the existing Attribute fields displayed. You can enter the Values for the Attributes then click the Store button to log the point. Or, while logging the point, you can click the Edit button to add the Attribute information.
