John Rose used Power Point (see it here) to present a report regarding use of ESRI Inc.'s ArcPad software on a hand held device running Windows CE Opoerating System (CE is a "lite" version of MS-Windows) as a field GPS interface for navigating to sites, reviewing the AZSITE GIS locational and tabular data and editing these data while in the field. Upon return to a standard computer running ArcView 3.2/3 or ArcGIS 8, John can load the field data directly to the main GIS effortlessly. In terms of Resource users and especially Archeologist's use of GPS for Cultural GIS work, ArcPad is a fundamentally basic useful tool in terms of gaining quality spatial as well as tabular data and doing so in an effective and efficient manner. John Rose now is working to tweak ArcPad with "ArcPad Application Builder - ArcPad Studio" in order to replicate the AZSITE data entry forms on the ArcPad CE device. ArcPad integrates with ArcView 3.2/3.3 and ArcGIS and provides data collection situations and navigation/orientation capabilities that are spectacular. Join the Discussions regarding ArcPad.
