Import values 2


In version 1.5.5 has been added possibility to import values for particular fields. This function was requested by few users and is useful if you need to create surveys with long list of possible values.
To import the values you need to create simple text file containing values organised in separate lines as shown on the picture below. You can use any text editor to create such a file:

The text file created in the step above must be copied to the device SD Card to folder MapIt->Import->Attributes (please create Attributes folder if it does not exist).

Sd Card->MapIt->Import->Attributes

Sd Card->MapIt->Import->Attributes

Following the step above you can import field’s values when creating new field or editing existing one as shown on the pictures below:

    Hi:

    I use mapit, fantastic software and its a good idea for future updates, the possibilty to add directly new values for a field – attribute when you are collecting data in the forest.
    Sometimes for example you find new species that you have not in the values of a field.(species). Then you have to exit go to atributtes section > Edit …too long if you can do it directly.

    And please, add option SAVE PICTURES IN SD CARD !!!!, ITS A IMPORTANT UPDATE.

    Thanks a lot
