Speaker: In this video I will be showing how to use the General Mapping in Global Plot
Management to mark features in the field. [0:00:07.7][0:00:09.4]We will open our Global
Management software and click on our General Mapping tab. [0:00:14.4]We can put in our client
division and location. I already have one selected.
Now, [0:00:27.3] I will go to my GPS mark. Make sure your GPS receiver is connected to the
computer you’re using and have a RTK fix signal before proceeding. [0:00:37.5]We can go
appear to our tools settings and then on our GPS connection tab, click on find. Now the computer
will search to our available COM ports until it finds the GPS signal.
Once it found the GPS signal, we can click on the view data to see the NMA strings coming out.
The GPM program requires the GGA signal, the GSA signal and the RMC signal. We want those
at five hertz and at the highest moderate that the receiver will put out.
So, I turn my GPS on and then I should see my green icon my screen that is the position of the
GPS antenna and my latitude and longitude displayed over here to the left. [0:01:31.9]First thing
I'm going to do, record the field boundary. [0:01:36.9]This is our new layer icon and then there's
a small arrow to the right. We click on it to select the layer. I click on boundary. Then all I have
to do is click on start and drive around my boundary and then it's recording all the GPS points as
it goes around.
When we get to the end of our boundary all we have to do is to click on stop and [0:02:11.8] the
boundary will automatically save. Now, we will do the same thing but we’re going to record a
line. [0:02:16.8]We go back to our new layer tab. Click on line. And all we have to do is click
start and drive our line. And when we get to the end of our line, we can click on stop.
This is great for recording to the tracks and other features in the field. And we click stop. And it's
automatically saved. [0:02:40.3] Now, we’re going to record an area. This is like saving a little
spot in your field [0:02:45.4] that might came like water. We click on our new layer again and
we’ll go down here to modified area. Drive to the area that we need to record. Click start, drive
around the area and when we get done we click stop. And these layers are automatically saved.

[0:03:05.3]So, now we’ll go in my step for the lay-out. [0:03:10.7] I don’t have a plot ID that is
already in this location. Here is my field. Now, if I go over here, I can just click on the shape file
for my boundary. And it's displayed on the screen. I can click on the shape file for my line. It will
be displayed on the screen. Then I can click on the shape file for my area. And it will be
displayed on the screen. Now, I will switch over the county data and I'm connected to the
internet. So, I will bring up a [0:03:42.7] internet map here. So here, you'll see the boundary line
and area marking in the actual field that I will be planting. This is very useful for going out and
recording the features of your field before you plant. [0:04:01.0]Thanks for watching.
