CMTINC.COM has released the Wetland – Stakeout application for use on the Apple iPad. Besides providing Feature digitization and GPS Stakeout functions, this app will let the users create a custom data entry and report form. The form could be a simple inventory log, price quote, or job contract, or a sophisticated form for collecting GIS data.

In particular, a customizable report form is built into the app to facilitate the data collection for wetland delineation. This wetland determination data form contains built-in logic as well as formulas for performing automatic computations. It is based on the “Wetland Determination Data Form — Arid West Region” provided by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The data collection form can be modified by the users for use in other regions.

The Wetland – Stakeout app will let the users digitize the test sites in a map job or import the test sites from Shapefiles or DXF files. The users can then use the stakeout function to help them get to the test sites and record the observation data. Now that the iOS devices are able to work with some external sub-meter GPS receivers, a user could also record fairly accurate location data for the test holes that are actually dug on site. After completing the wetland data entry, the users can send the report to a PDF file and email it back to the office.

The Wetland – Stakeout app is one of a series of GPS-based iOS apps developed by CMTINC.COM. It is now available for download from the iTunes App Store.
