The patrol track shapefile exported from SMART is unsequential

HI everyone,

I am Okta from WCS Indonesia Program. In Indonesia, we have been doing analysis about threats occupancy using SMART Patrol data. One of the requirements of the analysis is sequential patrol tracks data. We exported the track patrol from SMART into shapefile, I thought the track from SMART should be sequential. But when we doing data processing we found that the exported track files from SMART were not sequent. We verified by converting it into a track point, it turned out that the ID was not sequential with the track path (you can see it in the attached files). Previously, I also checked the patrol track point in the SMART software and show that it was sequent. Have you any idea about this? Here is attached the track shapefile from SMART and its conversion track points.
It will be helpful if the exported patrol track can be sequent, so we don’t need to re-generate (re-digitation) the patrol track. Thank you very much.

Best regards,

Here is the track points visualization.

Hello Okta,
Can you confirm which version of SMART you are using? It sounds like this may be a new issue in SMART 7, but it worked fine in SMART 6. Is that correct?

Hi Okta,
Can you also clarify how the track was created? SMART just assigns new IDs to trackpoints as they are created, so if some trackpoints were imported after the patrol was created, it would just assign them the next available IDs, which would look just like your image if trackpoints #64-87 were added to SMART after the other trackpoints were already added.

Hi Matt,

Thank you for your respon. I am using SMART 6.3.0. We did not adding waypoint/track point after created a patrol file. The patrol file was created once, then we did import waypoint and set track by import GPX data. We generated shapefile using patrol track query.
