Getting shape files to handheld

Search Discussion Boards

To load your fields as backdrops, they must be arc view shape files. These files need to be copied from your desktop to the Palm PC through Windows Explorer. Be sure to include the .shp, .dbf. and .shx. Scroll down and find Mobile Devices. You may then create a new folder or add them to My Documents on the Palm PC. Right click and select Paste onto the folder. Your files should now be available to be loaded as backdrops.

If you are wanting to do VRA with Site Mate,

1. First create your application layers in Farm Site.
2. Export them as Shape Files, or one of the other supported application files such as .tgt, .arm, .pre, or .rxf.
3. These files then need to be copied onto the Palm as described above.
4. Click on the RX option.
5. A Variable Rate Layers box will come up. Click on the drop-down arrow under RX Map and choose the presciption map to load. Click OK.

Hope this helps!
