AmigoCollect mobile application can record a location track of the device using internal or a high precision external GPS.
Before start a track recording user can change default parameters for tracking.
- The name of the track.
- Time interval defines how often a location point will be stored.
- Distance is the minimum distance between location points.
- Required accuracy. The only positioning points with accuracy equal or better than defined in this field will be stored. This value shall not be set below reasonable GPS accuracy, otherwise no positioning will be recorded. For example if the internal GPS receiver is used, the best GPS accuracy could be around 3 meters. If the Required Accuracy is set to 1 meter, non of the GPS points will be recorded. If the Required Accuracy is set to 5 meters, all the points with 3 to 5 meters accuracy will be recorded, but all the points with accuracy >5 meters will be ignored. If user wants to record all the positioning points regardless of accuracy the value for Required Accuracy shall be set to 100 meters or more.
- If the optional expiration date for a track is set, the track will be deleted automatically after the expiration date.
When track is recording the track info view will be shown in the bottom side of the screen. Also the button to show the track list is shown on the screen. When track is not recording, the list of tracks can be shown using the application menu.
Recorded track can be used as a geometry for a record.
