In an earlier blog post, we discussed how to specify a GGF file for use by the Trimble Positions ArcPad extension in calculating mean sea level (MSL) elevations in the field. This is done through a registry entry. The blog post also included a simple utility application (with source code) for creating this registry entry. At the time of that release, the solution only pertained to Windows Mobile. However, in the latest (10.2.2.1) release of the Trimble Positions ArcPad extension, this functionality now exists in the Windows version as well as the Windows Mobile version. The necessary registry entry is the same on both platforms. The simple utility application is available for both platforms:
- compiled application for Windows Mobile: GeoidConfigurator
- source code for Windows Mobile application: GeoidConfigurator_src_VS2008
- compiled application for Windows: GeoidConfiguratorWin
- source code for Windows application: GeoidConfiguratorWin_src_VS2010
Note: The download links in the original blog post have also been updated to include the Windows files.
