Corvallis Microtechnology Releases Farming GPS GIS App

December 20, 2012, Oregon, USA – CMTINC.COM announces the release of the Farming GPS GIS software application for the Apple iPad. During the last six months CMTINC.COM has released several simple app tools for using the iPad or iPhone to perform various  tasks on land features. In view that all of these GIS mapping functions could be useful for farming, farm sales, farm management and farm services, the supplier has incorporated these and other powerful functions in the Farming GPS GIS app. The app will let the user 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. The users will be able to easily divide or combine the farm plots and record attribute information for each farm plot. The users will also be able to enter formulas to compute values derived from the recorded data. For example, the yield per acre can be automatically calculated based on the yield for a farm plot and the acreage of the plot.

In conjunction with a compatible high-accuracy GPS device, the Point Stakeout function can help the user locate an old land mark, and the Line Stakeout function can help the user layout a long fence or pipeline.
