FAQ: Are incoming GPS coordinates projected to the Map's coordinate system?
Are incoming GPS coordinates projected to the Map's coordinate system?
Yes. ArcPad does the following to incoming GPS coordinates:
1. Transforms the GPS coordinates from the GPS datum (usually WGS84) to the Map's datum. This only occurs if the GPS datum does not match the Map's datum.
The GPS datum is set in the ArcPad Options dialog box: Protocol page.
2. Projects the geographic GPS coordinates to the Map's projection. This only occurs if the Map uses projected coordinates.
