Overview of creating point features
Creating a point feature using the incoming GPS coordinates involves the following steps:
- Select a point layer for editing via the Start/Stop Editing tool or the Table of Contents.
- Activate the GPS.
- Tap the GPS Point button on the Edit toolbar to create a point feature.
- Type in attributes for the new point feature.
Enabling GPS position averaging for points: GPS position averaging for points is enabled in the Capture page of the GPS Preferences dialog box. You can also specify the number of GPS positions for ArcPad to average.
Typing in attributes during position averaging: You can type in attributes (in the Attributes page or a custom edit form) without waiting for the position averaging to be completed. This is particularly useful if you have specified a large number of GPS positions to average. ArcPad will stop averaging after the required number of GPS positions has been received and averaged. Averaging will stop once you have tapped the ok button.
Refer to section, Connecting your GPS receiver, for help on activating the GPS.
