    Does anyone use a graphics tablet in conjunction with GIS work?  Our ag appraiser uses an app we created to submit her ag use changes to GIS.  The freehand drawing tool works great but doesn't allow for the ability to pan and keep drawing if she's changing a large area.  Wondering if a graphics tablet could be used instead?

    Hi Sherie  We do not use a graphics tablet yet, but if we do I envision using Google Earth on an iPad or tablet to make the polygons and then send the new KML polygons via email to GIS.  Arc then converts the KML to shapefiles.  The app you have sounds rather neat.  What platform do you use?  Wish I could be of more help, Sherie.
