We intend to do some moose and caribou inventory, using what's called a stratified random block survey. We'll have potentially several hundred polygons mapped out in ArcGIS, and want to upload at least some of them into the iPad, probably using MotionX-GPS HD, so that we can see as we fly along whether we're in or out of the survey area, by watching our flight track in relation to the polygon boundaries. Anybody done this sort of work, perhaps not necessarily with animal surveys, and found a good application to import shapefiles in and display them on the unit, along with real-time GPS?
Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!
Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.
Have fun and enjoy your iPad
