I am running ArcPad 10 in windows 7 on a laptop and on a field unit consisting of an Ashtech MobileMapper 10 as a PDA talking to an SXBlue GPS. This system provides the real time half meter (without post processing) resolution I need for forestry and wetland science. I can download data to Surfer for contouring applications but I can't print directly from Arcpad.
MapWindow seemed to offer a solution but there's glitch in the latest release (4.8.6). The glitch causes an apparent disparity between the numbers of lines in the dbf and shapefiles. I don't see a way to load my project into the ESRI cloud application and print from there.
Besides, I'd like to use this issue as an opportunity to learn an open source application and begin using it. I will be very grateful for any and all help offered on this. Thanks, NickC, Salem OR.
