Exercise 01 – Importing GPS points from your field visit

Note Note: This is one of the few exercises for which sample data is not provided, as you need a GPS device connected to the computer in order to work on the exercise. The same step-by-step method with sample data will be used to present the exercise, but in order to work on it you will need to connect your GPS and unload personal data that you have already gathered.

GPS Module

The GPS Module will allow you to download to your computer the data you gathered in your field visit and load it to new layers in the GIS. Waypoints, tracks, and routes can also be defined and transferred to the navigation device to be then used on site.

To begin using the module you need to activate the corresponding tab.
