Hi Croco,

If you are in Peninsular than use Kertau 1948. If in Sabah Serawak than use Timbalai 1948 .

OK, then. May I know what are you planning to do if you had the data?

DO you mean that you have all those data in hand? Or are you looking for the data?

Hi there and welcome.  8)
May I know what kind of data do you want to manage and what software are you using? i.e. MapInfo, ESRI ...

Hi David,

Welcome to MyGIS website. GIS day has been celebrated here in Malaysia for as long as I can remember ESRI promoting that. You are right, this helps bring the GIS awarness to people. Even though they are using GIS in their day to day life without knowing it  :D

One thing is that the distances are different. Using sgems, the distances different than those in ArcGIS. Not familiar with sgems, but does it take coordinate systems?

Before that ... there is no stupid questions ... so don't worry.

I need to know what are you trying to demonstrate in this exercise, just curious to know. Are you using data from California?

You don't have to export ... if your data is set to be WGS84 and you set your dataframe is set to Kertau, it will make the conversion on the fly for you.

Glad I clarified.  ;D

Chain is an old unit of measuring distances, you might find that in serveying data or maps. In Malaysia they would also use the term "Rantai" which means chain in Malay language.

In your case, you should not be bothered too much about this, please use meters - unless if the units of your base map are in chain -  ;)

Hi there,

I am not sure if you have noticed that if you click on the show help button -and - whenever you click on any text box, the help on the write panel would change according to the dialog box element you click on.

As for where are the results, if not mistaken, it would be added as new field in your layer/feature class.


GIS Articles / Should I Google Map or Not ?
« on: February 23, 2010, 08:04:01 AM »
Hello there,

Google Maps is one of the most commonly used map services on earth with its fairly recent and frequent updates in Malaysia and the rest of the world. Even though other products exist such as Bing Maps from Microsoft, a much younger service with less maps ...

What makes Google Maps more attractive is the fact that not only it can provide the normal users like you and me with maps, satellite/aerial photos and 3D terrain but you can also embed this free service (unless you want to use it for vehicle tracking - of course you might consider forking out 10,000 USD yearly fee out of you pocket  :P) into you own application.

What people do not know however is that those KML layers which form the map we customize on our websites are not processed on our local server, however the data is taken to Google's servers than processed to appear as an image on your page.
In other terms, making easier for Google to harvest data if they were bad. I am sure they are not doing such things.

One of the cases is the ironic case of, were the owner of the site is asking his users to verify the data (they have been collecting) and displaying them on Google maps.

 ??? The ostrich thought wrong.

I hope this would help.
