    Is there a way to periodically send this up to cloud like dropbox, say every 30 sec. to a minute? Also is there an easy way to import this into arcgis online? I would like to use this functionality as a way to track some contactor doing work for us. Please lete know.

      Hi Jamie,
      Not at the moment – I will put your request on the list of things for consideration, but I am afraid it will be difficult to get it scheduled in the near future for implementation. Q1 of 2016 is probably more realistic.

    Hi…..I dont know the correct content to do this comment, but is about the Datum availables, just Could be a good idea add the WGS84 UTM.

    • osedok says:

      Hi Steve, for the class of devices like mobile phones and tablets there is no difference in terms of datum shifts between UTM WGS84 and NAD83 or ETRS89.

    Is there the ability to take waypoints without turning the tracking feature off?

    I have recently been learning how to apply Map It to my survey needs and it works really well. I’m using it to survey marine megavertebrates (dolphins, whales, basking sharks etc) from a boat. It works really well to collect point data and the ability to create drop down menus is fantastic as it speeds up collection. As well as collecting the point data I am also trying to collect line data in order to represent our boat track. I have set the software to record position data every 30 seconds, which is a good interval for us. My problem is when I export the track data. The tracks export as one entry with no record of the location data collected every 30 seconds. Is it possible to set the track up so that it exports these features? If not then I will continue to have a gps logger running in the background recording the track.
    Thanks for the great software and thanks for any help with this.

      Hi Duncan, In the next update (4.0.6) there will be an option added allowing tracking for the active point layer. If you would like to test this facility in the beta channel please let me know by email. When starting the recording for the point layers you will be providing the attributes for the first point – than all subsequent points will be logged automatically with the interval set for tracking.

    Just want to know the timeframe of integrating or importing this to the ArcGIS Online platform like Jamie asked? Thanks.

      Hi Theron,
      Due to other commitments I am not able to confirm the time-frames, I may start looking at possible options this summer, however cannot promise anything in terms when it’s get implemented into the ‘live’ product.
