The Original Plot Hound
Zoey, Zack’s dog and companion through school and NCX’s early years, went along on all those cruising trips. She made it fun, barked to warn about snakes (and oddly, turtles) and was always there to nudge Zack when it was time to step away from the computer and take some time in the woods. She also happened to be a Plott Hound. So as the cruising app made its way into the hands of foresters across the country, it became clear the only name that made sense was “Plot Hound,” in honor of Zoey. A handy app for cruising named after a handy little cruising companion.
FAQHow it Works
Is there a fee to use Plot Hound?
The Plot Hound application is 100% free to use.
Is there support available for Plot Hound?
Currently we do not offer email or phone support for Plot Hound.
Which mobile devices are supported by the Plot Hound app?
The Plot Hound application is available for both iOS and Android, and can be used on any device running those operating systems.
Do I need to use both the online platform and the mobile application for Plot Hound to work?
The two products are designed to work together. However, it is possible to set up your cruise using the online application, and then collect cruise data using a third-party application and/or hardware. (For our experienced users, the Plot Hound web application used to be called ‘Canopy’.)
Is Plot Hound effective without cell service?
Yes, Plot Hound will work without a cell signal or data connection. However, to initially download your cruises, upload cruise data, or load map imagery, you will need a data or WiFi connection. You’ll want to do these things before heading out to any areas with poor or no coverage. Best practice is to upload cruise data at least once per day.
Which measurement units, species, and products are supported? Can I customize?
Measurement units include feet for heights and product lengths and inches for diameters. Products are defined in the Plot Hound web application. The list of species cannot be edited, but note that while only the 25 most common species are listed in the ‘Common’ portion of the drop-down list, the ‘All’ portion has the rest.
