I have QGIS an, access database and a Haicom gps all connected and running on a windows 8 machine.
I want to integrate all 3 items so that while in the field i can enter information into the database ie bird names, numbers etc AND automatically update XY location from the GPS ie a site AND see where i am in QGIS relative to other layers such as vegetation aerials etc.
status - at the moment QGIS easily logs a route and shows me where I am.
my question is - should i migrate access data to spatial database such as SpatiaLite or similar and then work on automatic logging of GPS data with a field entry
or write a macro/module in the access database to GET XY data from the GPS
