MxGPS - Examples

Usage example

This example looks at how features such as points, lines and polygons can be uploaded from ArcMap into the GPS unit and stored as waypoints or tracks. Data can also be captured on the GPS unit and downloaded into ArcMap.

1. Data in ArcGIS

Screenshot from ArcMap showing National Park boundary and Ranger Headquarters (HQ). The park boundary is a polygon layer and the Ranger Headquarters is contained in a point layer.

2. Upload Boundary

National Park Boundary uploaded as a track log and displayed on the GPS unit's main map. The map data is automatically projected from the map's spatial reference into WGS84.

3. Upload Headquarters

Ranger Headquarters uploaded as a waypoint and displayed on the GPS unit's main map. The map data is automatically projected from the map's spatial reference into WGS84.

4. Capture GPS Data

GPS screen shot after capturing the start of the trail and the camping area as waypoints, and the walking trail as a track log. Data is captured by the GPS and stored internally in WGS84 coordinates.

5. Download New GPS Data

Screenshot from ArcMap showing the newly captured GPS data after being downloaded into the map. The GPS data is automatically projected into the spatial reference that the map is currently using.
