MicroSurvey Software Announces Major FieldGenius Update 01.16.2003

January 16, 2003
FieldGenius is the first data collector that will create surface models and contours as measurements are taken with a Total Station.

With FieldGenius XG, MicroSurvey creates the most powerful graphics possible on a Windows CE device. This makes it easier to zoom, pan, or view data in a 3D perspective view. XG is the first data collector that will create surface models and contours as measurements are taken with a Total Station. FieldGenius XG can import complex DXF CAD drawings with blocks, text, and other entities. To make data export easier, the program creates Autodesk Land Development Desktop Field Book (FBK) files with points, connectivity, and raw data.

FieldGenius XG introduces an advanced Heads Up Display (HUD) to take advantage of the graphics in CE devices. Shots, point, and line information are instantly HUD displayed on top of the drawing – no switching screens or views between graphics and text screens. Smart Menus provide options at the right time to make work fast and easy. These pop-up menus are active on points, lines, or any screen area.

Simon Tritschler from Ireland, an early beta tester, commented: “First impression … simply AWESOME. Love the 3D view / taping function / HUD is brilliant / speed of regen is fantastic (even on a 3630 iPAQ).”
