||The following issues have been confirmed in both ArcPad 7 and 8:
We have worked with many ArcPad users in Wisconsin who use the WCCS (Wisconsin County Coordinate System). This has been working fine with ArcPad for quite some time. Now there is a new system in Wisconsin: WisCRS (Wisconsin County Reference System). I've attached the summary report of this system.
Some ESRI users have migrated their entire GIS to this new system. In fact, new ArcGIS now only has WisCRS PRJ files in the coordinate system folder and WCCS is gone.
ArcPad will check out the data to WisCRS and the map and coordinates in ArcPad match the GIS. Also, the projection properities in ArcPad match ArcGIS. However, once GPS is activated and positions are being read it is in Lat/Long and the two systems don't match and the two are not lining up...not even close. There is no "on-the-fly" conversion occuring which needs to happen anytime you are using anything but Lat/Long WGS-84 in the field. Going to the GPS position window and tapping on the position, changing to Map Projection yield "N/A".
It's like ArcPad cannot convert GPS's native format (Lat/Long) to WisCRS but can do so for WCCS.
Until a workaround is figured out, ArcPad users in Wisconsin may have a delay in migrating to the current WisCRS system.
Has anyone figured out a workaround or have any suggestions?
