Using Bluetooth GPS with Tree Plotter - That's News To Me !

May 12, 2017 -- Jeremy Cantor, a GIS and Natural Resource Specialist and Ian Hanou, the founder and Director of Business Development at Plan-It Geo have co-written a White Paper: Using Bluetooth GPS Receivers with Tree Plotter. 

This short and precise paper gives you a look into the customization available with Tree Plotter software by integrating the use of Bluetooth GPS receivers into online mapping applications.

"At Plan-It Geo, we develop and use Tree Plotter, a full-featured, supported, secure, web-based GIS tree inventory software application designed for inventorying, managing, and informing decisions about trees. It is built with the following technologies: OpenLayers, Leaflet, PostgreSQL, PostGIS, Amazon Web Services, and JavaScript. The software application does not require any proprietary hardware; it runs on any device with a web browser. Most users already own or have access to mobile phones and tablets which come with web browsers pre-installed.

Tree Plotter allows users to import an existing inventory or create a new one to manage public or private trees in an online map. Users can make use of the GPS location from their smart device to see where they are on a map and then place a point on the location of a tree onto an aerial imagery basemap to include it in their inventory. In most cases, this workflow works well and meets the needs of our clients where GIS is used to create the X/Y coordinates of a tree, not GPS. Many clients also collect other location data such as park amenities and assets."
