ianMD Menus

This is under very active development, and will be changing frequently.  Only use if you are willing to experience problems; the price for your indulgence will be an opportunity to influence the development of the software.  Virtually anything that can be done in MICRODEM could be ported, and we are looking for what makes the most sense to do in the field with a tablet or phone.

This is an older Windows version, and includes some options not currently enabled for Android.  This also requires modifications so it will work reasonably on a phone.


Operations available:

DEM Panel: (missing if no DEMs)

  • Pick DEM
  • Pick DEM map display

Image Panel (missing if no images)

LAS panel   (missing if no lidar files)

  • Pick LAS file
  • LAS display option
  • Thinning for LAS for faster display

GPS Panel:

  • Only the ASCII file option is probably working
  • Start the GPS with another app which will show the startup progress
  • The 1 or 2 sec update rate for the file might not work, or require that you set the timing with other software.  The log will only reflect positions that change from the last record.
  • +GPS buttons manually centers the map on the current GPS position.
  • Center GPS checkbox centers the map on the current GPS position automatically as the position updates.
