I have also enjoyed reading the information posted to the Farm Works Support Discussion Group over the past few weeks. We continue to notice a lot of questions related to scanning, mapping, and calibrating FSA (I trying to get use to their new name) maps.
Over the past few weeks, scanned and calibrated our farm and our neighber's farms. I feel pretty comfortable with the mapping phase of the program. If you are interested in getting help with map scanns, feel free to contact me or my partner in mapping at:
PS: Many of you may already be doing this, but for TEXT, I have started setting the grids to the text size that I want before starting to type the text. This way, regardless of the zoom level, the text will always be very close in size. I soon realized that I was editing and re-editing text and font size to get them to look and print out the same size. For the most part set the grid at 120 feet seems to work real nice. It readable when working with the maps on the monitor and when print the maps of fields on paper, they continue to be legible. Let me know if you have any other decent work arounds for similar situation.
Again, thanks to FarmWorks for supporting the software in this manner. Looking forward to hearing from the Farm Works users.
