The 6th major FieldGenius upgrade is available immediately from MicroSurvey. Packed with useful features, this release was created with the goal of streamlining operation on a minute-by-minute basis. According to Jason Poitras, Director of Product Development, "Beta testers have reported a 15% increase in productivity with the new version".

Some of the highlights include:

  • More power and flexibility in the automatic linework
  • A fully integrated, RPN mode calculator
  • A completely remapped and customizable keyboard
  • Streamlined entry and selection of descriptions
  • New measurement modes for reflectorless instruments
Many more features are listed on the update page www.microsurvey.com/products/fieldgenius Upgrades are available for current FieldGenius owners starting at $295US or $345CDN. With FieldGenius 2006, MicroSurvey has divided the product in to modules, an approach used by many data collection software developers. FieldGenius 2006 consists of four modules: "Standard", for total station use; "Advanced", for roading (and other extended features); "Robotic", for robot support; and "GPS", for GPS support. A "Premium" version containing all modules is also available. While FieldGenius 2006 Standard has a lower price-point than the previous "all inclusive" version it replaces, customers that wish to purchase additional modules will pay more for FieldGenius 2006 than for the previous version. According to Darcy Detlor, president of MicroSurvey Software, "FieldGenius 2006 is now leading in many areas in the data collection arena. These include roading, graphics, display, calculations, and linework. The price of the product did not adequately reflect the technology level of FieldGenius, so effective December 1, 2005, we raised the price. Even with the increase, FieldGenius 2006 is still competitively priced, maintaining our commitment to high value. When combined with the new IP65 rated Tracker, it is an unbeatable package".
