GPS and ESRI

with one comment

Why is it that the world’s leading GIS software company make it so much less than simple to import rich GPS data? ┬áHaving spent much of the morning tracking down a nice program that works we can now see some of the additional points we made splayed out on the map. ┬áThe rest is joining the dots.

These extra points are largely Christian’s attempt to find the boundary of the region of forest, normally a prerequisite for forestry itinerary planning, but in our case the forest is so scattered and the undergrowth so thick that hacking through that enormous perimeter would take weeks and weeks of expensive time.

Having those GPS data in place I spent the afternoon testing classes in MultiSpecCarb so that when we have good satellite images, the processing will be a breeze…
