Newbie's GIS / Re: Spatial distribution on Kuala Lumpur map

Don't bother about the Z value as you would not need to use elevation you will be working on 2D only.

That is surely WGS84 you are using with a Degree Decimal Minute setting. You will have some problems in the conversion with the "o" and " ' " characters. You should set your coordinate systems to "World" to achieve your quest.

Your are using NAD? North American Datum? Oops  :o

Never mind, we all went to that. How did you get your data? Is it from a GPS? Can you put in here one sample point? Just to check what kind of coordinates you have.

Hi there,

Have you thought of using the Spatial thoughtsyst Extension to create the contours? This would be enough for you to get that done.

HI there,

Have you checked out Ilwis software ? I am not much of remote sensing specialist, but I guess this would give you a mouth full to work on.

In addition should have some valuable information ...

Happy new year!

GIS and GPS / Garmin GPS Communicator and Bing Maps
« on: September 15, 2010, 07:02:56 PM »
Hi there,

I have stopped looking for a while at Bing maps since the content for Malaysia was poor. However, today I have decided to see what I could see on Bing maps and I was surprised! Yes, more roads are available for Kuala Lumpur, and most importantly, once you find the landmark you are looking for , you can just forward it to your Garmin GPS using the Garmin Communicator. It is available for Firefox and IE. It could be downloaded from here.

It is a very interesting tool I must say.

By the way, I forgot to mention that Bing (Microsoft) is using NavTeq maps. It is great to have more competition around. Google Maps, Bing Maps, OVI maps (from nokia); they all offer API's or SDK's and a very exciting development for the GIS industry in Malaysia in particular. Perhaps Google would lower down the price of the use of Google maps from US$10,000.00 to something more affordable.

Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.

ArcGIS 8.x / 9.x Core Software / Re: Projection Conversion
« on: August 26, 2010, 03:04:12 PM »
Dear Firdaus,

First things first, please be informed that you do not disturb at all.
Secondly, this coordinate system issue troubles every one in Malaysia from the private to public sector so you are not alone.

You should not bother about the Cassini issue unless you are using cadastral data from JUPEM. If you are using topo maps than, you should use Kertau 1948 (for west Malaysia) or Timbalai (for east Malaysia) coordinate system.

I would suggest to you not to use WGS84 for the basemap.

Please let me know if this helps.

Thanks for asking.

GIS Blogs / Re: How Can I Create One Shape With My Gps Coordinates?

Those are NMEA sentences. That is a GPS feed not a file format (more or less).


Hi Magren,

You could use an arrow as a symbol then take the direction or angle as from a field in your attribute table. As simple as that.

At the first beginning, I don't think you would require to use any remote sensing. Loading your data into a GIS software would do the trick.

Do all those points of sales come with coordinate?

In which format is you GPS data, MS Excel? You can just load the table in ArcGIS than right click on the table and choose create x,y data ... something like that.

Is it a field you created yourself "ID"?
If it is not a system created field, then you can just create a new field with the name you want than use the field calculator to copy all the data into the new field. As simple as that.
