Farming GPS GIS on the App Store on iTunes

Corvallis Microtechnology, Inc.

Description

“Farming GPS GIS” for the iPAD provides many useful GIS mapping functions for farming, farm sales, farm service and farm management. It will let you easily create a farm tract, a timber tract or any other land parcel by importing data in Shapefile or DXF format, by precise digitization or by entering deed calls. The acreage and perimeter will be promptly computed. You can easily divide or combine the farm plots. You will be able to record attribute information for each farm plot as well as for each grid point. You will also be able to enter formulas to compute values derived from the recorded data. For example, when you enter the yield for a farm plot, the yield per acre can be automatically calculated based on the acreage of the plot.

If your device has GPS capability, the Point Stakeout function could help you locate an old land mark, and the Line Stakeout function could help you layout a long pipeline. If you don't care for hearing the navigation beeps, you may turn it off in the Stakeout Setting screen.

Please note: The accuracy of the location data depends on the GPS receiver used. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. The app lets you easily toggle the GPS on or off.

Detailed Function List:

* Import the shapes from Shapefile or DXF file.
* Precisely digitize Points, Lines and Areas over the built-in Map.
* Create a Line or an Area by entering Deed Calls.

* View or edit Attribute Values in a spread-sheet display.
* Sub-divide an Area by Direction Cut, Hinge Cut or a digitized Split-Line.
* Combine two adjacent Areas into one Area.
* Create buffer zones around a Line or Area Feature.
* Create grid points or grid lines over an Area Feature.
* Label the Features with ID and Attributes.
* Label the Lines with segment lengths and directions as well as corner angles.
* Label the Areas with size in acres and square feet or hectares and square meters.
* Measure distances and areas without saving the shapes.
* Create a Point from the entered address or coordinates.
* Create a Point or record a node by picking the GPS location.
* Use GPS to stake out Points or nodes on a Line or Area Feature.
* Use GPS to stake out a Line or Area boundary.
* Save the job data file for later use.
* Output the drawing and the coordinates to PDF.
* Export Features to DXF file.
* Email the job data files, DXF files, Deed Calls and the PDF files to your colleagues.

Landscape Alternatives

Everybody loves a beautiful garden. Gardeners love plants that are adaptable, tough, and fast-growing. It’s even better if that plant produces showy fruits that attract birds or is an annual that self seeds, so it doesn’t need to be replanted every year. Unfortunately, many of these plant traits desirable to gardeners can also increase the likelihood that a plant jumps the garden fence and invades natural areas.Invasive plants threaten our environment and economy. They pose an enormous threat to our native plants, animals, and ecosystems, and they cost the United States approximately $35 billion per year (www.invasivespecies.gov). Although invasive plants are almost always not native to a region, it is important to note that most non-native species are not invasive. We use the following definitions.Native (indigenous): A species that was present in North American prior to European settlement or has arrived since through natural means of dispersal.Non-native (exotic, alien, introduced): A species that was brought to North America by humans, either deliberately or accidentally.Invasive: A non-native whose introduction does or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health (from Federal Executive Order 13112).People have introduced invasive species both accidentally and deliberately. This app focuses on plant species that are used ornamentally and have become invasive in at least part of the Midwest. Cultivars or hybrids produced from these species may or may not be invasive. In the few published cultivar evaluation studies, some cultivars prove to be more invasive than the parent species, others less or not invasive. We lack research about cultivar invasiveness for many of these species. When we have good evidence about a problematic or relatively benign cultivar, we list those specifically.Suggested alternatives include both native species and non-native species that currently show no signs of becoming invasive.

MAEDN

Bugwood
Mid-Atlantic Early Detection NetworkIdentify and Report Invasive Plants, Insects and Plant Pathogens in the Mid-Atlantic States The Mid-Atlantic Early Detection Network (MAEDN) App brings the power of EDDMapS to your smartphone. Now you can submit invasive species observations directly with your smartphone from the field. These reports are uploaded to EDDMapS and e-mailed directly to local and state verifiers for review. MAEDN was developed by the University of Georgia’s Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health. MAEDN is more than just a smartphone app; MAEDN is a vast network of land managers, field experts, citizen scientists, naturalists, gardeners and others interested in documenting invasive plant occurrences in the Mid-Atlantic region for the purposes of early detection, improved management and better coordination. The region includes Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. Every year new invasive plants, insects and plant pathogens are found in the Mid-Atlantic region. These non-native invasive species threaten to undermine the health of our environment. More than an inconvenience, invasive plants and animals can greatly alter our native landscape, adversely impact native wildlife, destroy agricultural crops and threaten our health. Invasions of exotic species cost the United States over $120 billion each year. The economic costs are small compared to the ecological ones. Our natural areas furnish us the water we drink, the air we breathe and countless recreational opportunities. These lands are vulnerable to invasion by exotic plant and animal species and these infestations continue to increase every year. By reporting sightings of invasive plants and other invasive pests, we can better assess the extent of the infestations and hopefully eradicate new infestations before they become huge problems such as Japanese stiltgrass, tree-of-heaven or purple loosestrife. The goal of MAEDN is to make identification and reporting as easy and efficient as possible. Just a few minutes of your time can help provide vital information needed to protect vital wildlife habitat, agriculture, forestry and your favorite recreational areas from the damage caused by invasive species. This app is so easy to use, you can collect data while out fishing, hiking, kayaking or walking around your neighborhood. Features: •GPS automatically captures your current location •Submit an image of your sighting to add validity to your report •Online reporting •Offline reporting: reports saved on your phone to upload when you have network connectivity •Species ID Guides include images and information on the worst non-native invasive plants and other invasive pest species of the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States •Provides real-time point distribution maps centered on your current location •Invasive species resources Powered by EDDMapS - The University of Georgia Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health's Early Detection and Distribution Mapping System. EDDMapS allows for real time tracking of invasive species occurrences using local and national distribution maps and electronic early detection reporting tools. Thanks to support from Invasive Plant Control, Inc., National Park Service, University of Maryland, USDA NIFA and USDA Forest Service, EDDMapS, MAEDN and the MAEDN app is available to users at no cost.
