FieldGenius

Thank you for your interest in FieldGenius – the most productive and easy-to-use data collection software solution ever!

If you are new to FieldGenius, you will be impressed by its graphic user interface, one-screen graphical stakeouts, easily deciphered raw file that you can edit, powerful COGO tools, DXF file support, streamlined connection to your instrument or computer, multi-point resections, roading, training movies, and the easiest, most powerful linework tools in the industry.

FieldGenius supports all common RTK GNSS and generic NMEA receivers, as well as all standard and robotic total stations. With direct support for LandXML, you can stake to DTM surfaces or cross sections from your designed alignment. Real time surface generation allows you to compute volumes instantly.

FIELDGENIUS HAS EVOLVED INTO THE MOST POWERFUL AND PRODUCTIVE DATA COLLECTION SOFTWARE

What sets FieldGenius apart from the competition?

  • Code-free linework: Linework is created automatically without entering codes and is instantly displayed, eliminating the need for a separate sketch. No need to connect the dots back at the office.
  • Advanced display with live graphics and intuitive interface. Logical icons, customizable toolbars, smart objects, and easy-to-use GPS and total station controls. Standard or high-definition devices!
  • Easy stakeout: Choose between graphical compass, grid, and map staking modes to easily stake out points. Viewing direction can be adjusted based on your preferences.
  • Productivity tasks: Customize your data collector by assigning commands to your keypad keys.
  • Calculating tools: Access the built-in RPN calculator from any edit field and easily use surveying calculations.
  • Plus advanced roading, surfacing, slope staking, smart points, DXF & LandXML import/export, and full robotic and GPS support. FieldGenius is the choice of organizations that value productivity.

LINEWORK THE FIELDGENIUS WAY!

MicroSurvey has developed the simplest linework connectivity in the industry. Absolutely NO CODING is required to generate your linework in the field in real time. Other data collection systems force you to predefine codes for generating linework. MicroSurvey has made real-time linework as simple as connecting the dots.

FIELDGENIUS LINEWORK IS EASIER THAN ANY OTHER

DATA COLLECTION SOFTWARE

  • You can connect points that have different descriptions.
  • Linework can consist of straight segments, arcs, and splines.
  • Linework is ALL in 3D, including arcs and splines.
  • You can have more than one line with the same description;
    FieldGenius is smart enough to know which line to work on.
  • Multiple lines can connect to the same point.
  • Missing segments can be drawn using the pencil tool any time you need to add more info.
  • A bad line can be removed instantly by tapping it and selecting “Delete Segment”.

    ALL THE STAKING TOOLS YOU WILL EVER NEED

    FieldGenius includes staking commands for points, lines, arcs, alignments and 3D surfaces.
    A cut sheet generator helps you determine if the points you staked are where they should be.
    Choose between compass, grid, and map staking modes.
    Adjust viewing direction to north, prism, instrument, and user point.
    Next point routine helps you quickly select next point to stake out.
    Works with tablets and desktop PCs.

    WORKS WITH TABLETS AND DESKTOP PCS

    Not just for mobile devices & data collectors – it works great on Windows-based tablets as well!
    The desktop version is great for learning how to use FieldGenius and it comes with all the same tools and functions that are available on the data collector version.
    Use it to manually input your alignment data prior to heading out to the field, or use it to check projects that the field crew just downloaded.
    Projects are interchangeable between the desktop version and your data collector.

    IT'S EASY TO USE

    The Tap’n Survey interface allows you to take shots, stake points, edit coords, stake a line, or any of the things you do all day long. A single graphics tap takes you immediately to the function you want.
    Our logical icons and real toolbars are easy to use and understand.  Larger buttons for common commands make it easy to pick on the screen.
    You get more work done faster with our advanced interface that skips all the complicated menus.

    CODE-FREE CONNECTIVITY

    Line connectivity is not feature code dependent. A single line may be made up of points having different feature codes.
    Preset codes are not required. Best linework available!
    FieldGenius supports multiple lines using the same feature code.
    Supports quick and easy line editing.
    Arcs, Lines, and Splines are all fully 3D and can all be used in the same figure.

    PAINLESS DATA TRANSFER

    MicroSurvey’s ActiveSync support automatically connects with FieldGenius to show you all the projects on your device. Upload and download with a mouse click.
    FieldGenius uses RW5 files for raw data. This allows you to transfer your raw files into any modern surveying software.
    Coordinate and connectivity files are standard dbase format files that can be opened in Excel for further processing. Our database is open to you.
