The TreeWorks Mobile Interface

The main interface consists of the map display, the two built-in ArcPad toolbars at the top of the screen, the TreeWorks Mobile toolbar underneath the ArcPad toolbars, and the status bar along the bottom of the screen.

There is an additional built-in ArcPad toolbar, the Edit toolbar, that is not visible on start-up.  You are advised never to use the built-in Edit toolbar for deleting or editing features.  Use of the built-in Edit tools, in place of the TreeWorks tools, bypasses certain procedures and routines that ensure proper functioning of TreeWorks and a clean database.

The Tool Buttons

Add Site Click the tool button to activate (depress) it, then click a location on the map to add a site.  The site data-entry form will pop up.  Fill in the attributes in the form and click the OK button to create the site.  Clicking the Cancel (X) button will un-do the site creation.
Copy/Paste Site Click the tool button to activate (depress) it, then click an existing site to copy it.  The site’s ID number will be displayed on the left side of the status bar.  Click a second time at the desired location on the map to paste the site.  The data-entry form will pop up.  Fill in the attributes in the form and click the OK button to create the site.  Clicking the Cancel (X) button will un-do the site creation.
Identify Site Click the tool button to activate (depress) it, then click a site to select it and open the data form.  A selected site displays a square black dotted outline around it.  The data form displays the associated attribute data for that site.  You may edit the information.  Clicking the form’s OK button will save the changes and record the date and current user, while clicking the Cancel (X) button will close the form without saving.
Move Site Click on the tool button to activate (depress) it, then click the tree you want to move. The word "Selected" will be displayed on the left side of the status bar. Then click the new location of the selected tree. The tree point will then move to new location.
Delete Site Click the tool button to activate (depress) it, then click a site point on the map to delete it.  Note: you are only allowed to delete sites that have been created during the current check-out.
Exit ArcPad Click to exit ArcPad.  Simply closing the ArcPad window by clicking the X button in the upper-right corner of the window will not exit the program.  If ArcPad is not exited properly before synchronizing with the desktop PC, check-in problems may occur.
