"Just recently I went to a rollout for a Total Station and I had asked that question. Currenty there apps that do just that, but they have an accuracy of 30 foot radius. So if accuracy is what you want you wont get it with an android app. It will…"

"I hope he didn't bid the job thinking it could be done in 4 days. And then 4 weeks later we had trees and topo lines on the map.  I could only imagine how many trees and how steep the property was.  Did you punch him?"

"Everyone has the classic horror story.  I had one manager that decided we could do boundary, trees and topo, on a wooded parcel at the rate of 15 acres a day.  I told him I could get all 60 acres done before lunch tomorrow."

Robert Coutts replied to John Eckert's discussion Need help finding a good android gps app for boundary retracement.
"John, I'm with Charlie on this one ... apps aren't (yet) the answer to everything. The solution here pivots on GPS accuracy. Any app will be leveraging the GPS inside your phone which will be similar to your handheld GPS but the handheld…"
