Step 5 (optional): Install Datum Grid Editor

This program is used to create a subset of the Geodetic Data files. These files are very large, so we created this utility to extract a subset. This subset must then be copied onto your Data Collector in the following directory, overwriting some of the existing files that are already there:

...\MicroSurvey FieldGenius\Programs\Mapping
