Package ArcPad Template

Hi everyone,

Here is a little present for GIS Day! There is a new "Package ArcPad Template" tool available on the ArcPad Resources page.

This applet automatically creates an ArcPad QuickProject Templates for you within ArcPad rather than following the manual steps shown here ArcPad Online Help
A Template is simply a zip file containing all the layers that make up the template, and an apm file called Template.apm that references all of these layer files. You can easily create your own template from any layers. The layers can be shapefiles, AXF layers or raster layers.
The only manual step to do is to move the newly created zip file to the templates folder.

As always fee free to edit the script to suit your needs.
