Line & Polygon Layers 18


In version 2.0.0 of MapIt additionally to Point features you can collect Polygon and Line features.
The whole process is very simple and is allowing collection of multiple shapes per layer. Without valid “Line & Polygon Layers” or “MapIt Pro” extension the facility is limited to two features per layer with now more than 10 vertices.

When the active layer is type of Polygon or Polyline ‘Add New Feature’ button will be displayed in bottom-right corner of the map as shown on the pictures below:

When ‘Add New Feature’ button is pressed standard ‘Add feature’ screen containing set of attributes is opened and if the feature is saved new editing session is started and you can start adding the vertices using map cursor or GPS location.

During the ‘Edit Session’ you can Insert vertexes or remove existing feature vertexes as shown on the pictures below:

When creating new features measurement details are being shown on the bottom of the screen. The default measurement’s units can be set in ‘Survey Settings’.

Polygon and Line layers can be exported to number of formats (see details) and converted easily to well known industry files e.g.  SHP files.

    HI,

    I´m very interested in your app but I was wonder whether there is a limit or not to the number of polygons, points and lines per layer with the extension. I also wondering whether the offline maps extension will allow me to use georeferenced photos or access google maps satellite photos.

    We would like to capture photos with lat/long, tilt angle and azimuth on the photo and as meta data, then be able to export to a pc based mapping software. Can you let me know if any of this is possible in the pro version?

    Thanks

      Hi Roy, I am not able to test it but you can try. Some people got it working by switching on Mock locations overriding. So the coordinates from the BT device are overriding original locations from the device but I have never tested this option personally.

    I am trying to import a csv points file as per instructions, have copied the file to Sd card>MapIt >Import but it is not visible in the Ap. The csv file is the correct format when viewed in a wordpad. And I have tried variations of column headings for LONGITUDE as you say use lon in the Ap but lng in Web info. Any ideas why I can’t see the csv file to import. Or do I need to buy an extension as I thought the ability to import points files was standard feature

    I cannot edit line info from the map view after the line is completed, I have to go to manage layers and dig up the one to edit which is very tedious do you have a way to select the line on the map view to edit? I can edit the points by touching on the map view but not polygons or lines.

      Hi Nick, please click the line on the map and when the popup (Info Window) appears with the name of the line just click it and you will be taken to the Line attributes screen.

        Thanks for the quick reply, I am having the issue getting the popup to show at all, I noticed the first couple lines I made I was able to edit but now it is seemingly unavailable to do so.

            I zoomed in all the way almost all the time when collecting data, i go to touch a target line to edit and it sometimes selects random lines not in the view but not the target line or polygon I am looking to edit.
