    1. GPS CommunicationSoftware GPS Mapping Program Tarpits and Tips Tools of the Trade

    2. Tools of the Trade - Part II GPS Communication Program MN Dept. of Nat. Resources: DNR Garmin

    3. Overview • The Big Picture • The Language of GPS • Review of GPS Programs • Why DNR Garmin?

    4. GPS Communication Programs • Definition: • The “middleware” that allows a GPS receiver and a computer to communicate with each other. • Not a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Software

    5. Data Transfer GPS Field Work GIS Fire Incident Plans Cycle

    6. Overview • The Big Picture • The Language of GPS • Review of GPS Programs • Why DNR Garmin?

    7. Language of GPS • GPS stores and sends lots of data: • Lat/Long, Date/Time, Elevation, etc • Information sent to a receiving computer is the Language or Protocol • With Garmins, the choices are • NMEA and Garmin Protocol

    8. Language of GPS • NMEA – National Marine Electronics Association • NMEA 0183 standard • Streams data in text messages in the format of strings • Garmin – Proprietary messages that send additional data

    9. For This Class • Setting to NMEA if using Garmin / PDA and ArcPad • This week we need to ensure the Garmin is set to Garmin Protocol Mapping in Realtime Storing Data - Processing Later

    10. Tools and Accessories • The GPS receiver • Computer • Available COM(Communication port ) • A cable (aserial to USB adapter if needed) • Program to recognize the GPS

    11. Overview • The Big Picture • The Language of GPS • Review of GPS Programs • Why DNR Garmin?

    12. Decision Factors • All Garmins must be supported • Software support is high • Provide efficient data transfer to a GIS • Cost (Program) • Nerd Factor Scale

    13. Many GPS Program Choices Garmin MapSource

    14. Garmin MapSource • Works only with Garmins • Downloads/Uploads waypoints, tracks, routes • Low cost - $100 1:100K US Maps or 1:24K Region (Park) Maps • Limitations • Creates .mps output files • No Shapefile export

    15. Upload Garmin MapSource On Your PC Moving Map In Garmin

    16. Overview • The Big Picture • The Language of GPS • GPS Communication Requirements • Review of GPS Programs • Why DNR Garmin?

    17. Download Upload DNR Garmin and GIS • Data Transfer

    18. Summary • How GPS software fits into the Big Picture • GPS and Computers are made for each other • DNR Garmin as the preferred choice

    19. What’s in Store • Next in the series: • Mapping Programs and GIS
