I'm trying to figure out how to use Trimble GeoXT and GeoXH GPS receivers to efficiently capture small farm fields in rural areas. The main issue that I'm struggling with now is trying to deal with the boundaries of adjacent fields. Right now if there are two adjacent fields a surveyor will have to walk the perimeters of both fields, ideally I would prefer if they only had to walk the border between the two fields once so that we are not collecting data for that shared border twice.
Is there a way to use vertices of a polygon that I have alreay captured with the GPS unit? I'm fairly new to using Trimble units and I haven't been able to find anything in the documentation, but I'm sure someone must have had to deal with this type of problem before. We could deal with this in ArcGIS but I would prefer to solve the problem in the field when we are collecting the data.
