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.
