DataLog includes an integrated mapping feature. This is accessed while directly editing the sale in DataLog.
Use known latitude/longitude markers to localize a geographical point, or drop a marker onto a Google Map. To launch the feature, click the Load Map button, and a Google map of the continental United States will be displayed. Latitude and Longitude coordinates can be entered first if desired. The map will localize accordingly and display a marker.
The map coordinates are stored when a sale is saved. Users must be connected to the Internet in order to view the sale map.
To add a known marker, enter the Latitude and Longitude coordinates in decimal format, including +/- as necessary.
Click the Clear All button to remove it.
Alternatively, click to drop a marker anywhere on the map after clicking Add Marker; double-clicking the mouse will zoom in.
The marker can be dragged to a desired location on the map.
The marker location will update in the Latitude and Longitude fields.
These maps will automatically transfer into a report with the sale using the Insert Sale Map feature in ClickForms.
Also, here is some info about additional mapping services that are popular with AgWare customers:
One of the more popular options is Google Earth which is different from on-line Google Maps.
You can add pins and property boundaries and then save the current view as an image.
There is a Property Boundary tool. For more information on Property Boundary tool, click here.
You can also do that in Google Maps if you are logged into a Google Account.
Here is a link on how to add a place marker in Google Earth:
The reason a lot of users like Google Earth is because you can add Section/Township/Range lines through a third party service:
We also have some customers using services like Microsoft MapPoint, Delorme maps, Land Voyage, AgriData, and local tax property maps.
