User-friendly GPS post-processing wizard. Provides an interactive, step-by-step
environment for differentially correcting GPS data. The Wizard will
automatically connect to the internet and locate the closest NGS CORS base
station to where you collected your data and then download the necessary
files. After correction, the troubleshooting Wizard will recommend procedures
for correcting any uncorrected coordinates. You can use the Wizard to
post-process one or multiple GPS jobs in a single session.

north arrows. Once the plot format is complete, you can save the layout for
future use. Further customize your plots with company logos and acreage
summaries for polygons.

thousands of Point Symbols, Line and Area Patterns (including transparent
hatch patterns). You can also easily create your own symbols or choose
any other font library for a whole new library of symbols.

Point Analysis or "Spread" Function
Function allows you to view and edit the individual GPS fixes of your static
GPS Points. GPS fixes can be cut based on DOPs, Residual, Number of
Satellites, or even RMS, 2DRMS. Ultimately, the Spread Function allows you to
compare and improve the accuracy of your GPS Static Points.
You will see a graphic display of your averaged GPS Point and the
"spread" of all of the individual GPS fixes. The File/Point Summary
function can be used to access a text report summarizing each GPS position
fix: position, DOP, residual, SV Num as well as the Point’s
Horizontal/Vertical RMS and 2DRMS.
Import: ASCII, Shape file, DXF
you to supplement (import) your GPS maps with Feature data from a variety
of data sources: ArcView® Shape files, AutoCAD®
DXF files, ASCII and other PC-GPS Job files.
Once your map is complete, the Feature data can be exported into several
different GIS and database formats (ESRI Shape file, DXF, ASCII, MS ODBC,
Intergraph Microstation). Simply select the export format from the
pull-down Data Source box and then click on the export icon.
Your Map can be
created using a variety of data sources: GPS Feature files, DXF files, ASCII
Files, ESRI® Shapefiles (.SHP), databases, and digital images. The
geographic and image data in your Map is automatically organized into layers
to facilitate map viewing and data management. Your completed Map can be
displayed in UTM, SPC, LLA or even a user-defined Coordinate System.
Once your Map is created,
it can be plotted complete with custom legends, labels and objects. Each
Feature in the Map can be labeled by Feature name or by specific value.
Tailor the size, style or color of labels shapes and text to suit your needs.

function allows you to download photos from a Kodak digital camera and
attach photo images to Features in the Map. This function also works
with existing photos in a .JPG, .BMP or .TIF files. Click the Photo button to view the
images associated with your Features.
If you have
a GPS data collector, PC-GPS can help you manage your GPS data collection
"jobs" from start to finish. Prior to field data collection,
you may identify optimal times for GPS reception using Mission Planning.
In addition, you may want to construct a "Feature List" of
Features, Attributes, and Values to promote organized and convenient
field data collection. Following GPS collection, use our advanced differential
correction to improve the accuracy of your GPS data. Finally, export
your data to your GIS system or create a complete map within PC-GPS.

objects conforming to Microsoft's® OLE standard. Images,
such as aerial photos, can be georeferenced to your Map within PC-GPS.
Create new Features from your image using "heads-up digitizing".
Vividly describe Features by linking descriptive objects like video/audio
clips, documents and spreadsheets to a specific Point, Line or Area.

a number of powerful data analysis and management functions. Analyze
the Feature, Attribute and Value data in your Map using powerful Filter,
Search and Classification tools. With classification, you can create
data subgroups or color-coded classes. Calculate Feature areas and lengths
or measure map distances at the click of a button. View your attribute

Data from PC-GPS to your Database Program
If you need
to perform more extensive analysis or reporting functions, export your
map data directly to a number of databases such as Access®,
dBASE®, Foxpro® and other Microsoft®
ODBC compliant programs. PC-GPS data can then be joined with your existing
GIS database. Finally, you can import all your data, or only a portion
of data, back into PC-GPS.
