Code updated: 11/13/02
This code is being successfully used in the field to facilitate a sign survey by the City of Brookfield, WI, Highway Department. The dialog was designed for use with databases used in Cartegraph SignView software, although any Access databases may be used.
The dialog is intended to be used by picking approximate sign locations from an orthophoto. We chose this approach because a GPS unit is not needed and it is sufficiently accurate (+/- 2m or so).
The code in this project is also a good stepping stone for beginners. It demonstrates how to read and write to shapefiles and Access databases. In addition, combo boxes, list boxes, picture boxes, and multipage forms are shown.
