I already asked this question at http://www.rpls.com/forums/viewtopic/8/1276880, but didn't get any answer so far.
In a (dense) forest, we want to map all trees with 13 hectares (~3000 trees). Some gaps in this forest allow measurements with the dGPS, but mostly there is no reception. By measuring distances, azimuths and slopes between neighboring trees, we could calculate coordinates for all trees, based on the few GPS measurements we take in the gaps.
For this, I can create a feature (without position --> no reception) for each measurement and take an offset measurement from one tree to another with the Rangefinder. I can than export the data file to GPS Pathfinder Office software (V4.2). In the software, I can see the offset for each feature (distance, azimuth, slope) by clicking on it. But then there's a problem: In order to use the offset for the calculations, I'd have to export it. In this isn't working. It is possible to export a lot of attributes for each feature, but apparently not the offset.
So here are my questions:
- Is it somehow possible to export the offset measurements with GPS Pathfinder Office (V4.2)?
- If not: Is this possible with the newest version of this software?
- If not: Could any other software accomplish this?
