Jon,
Site Mate has the ability to log paths, points and areas/polygons. The key to determining whether an area (such as a weed area) will be an area/polygon or points comes down to how you are going to map it. If you are going to drive the perimeter/boundary then the map will be an area/polygon map. If you are going to “mark” the area by driving back and forth across it (as would be done when spraying or harvesting), then the map will be points for the area.

With regards to a status on/off switch, I’m assuming you mean an implement switch that automatically stops logging when you are not spraying. Contact Premier Technologies at 219-337-5319 or Ahill@premiertechinc.com. They are currently developing such a switch that will work with Site Mate (the programming side is already done) and a laptop or Windows CE device.

With regards to logging an as-applied and boundary map at the same time, this is not currently possible. You would need to either do the two functions separately or use a desktop program (such as Farm Site) to generate the boundary off the as-applied point data.

Let us know if you have any more questions.
