Evidence Recorder 10
Posted by Yifan Xia on 22 September 2014 04:28 PM

MicroSurvey Software Inc. is pleased to announce Evidence Recorder 10, the latest and highly anticipated version of evidence collection software built specifically for the professional reconstructionist.

Featuring a powerful video scanning routine, easier project workflows, and enhanced connection capabilities, Evidence Recorder 10 contains many changes that make a big difference for the users. (Feature Overview Video)

 

New Features

  • Video Points Scanning – Point scanning routine has been greatly improved to allow user to define complex scan areas using total station onboard cameras, and transfer/export scan data with one simple click. Full dome and manual modes are also added to easily scan large areas. [Only available on Windows tablet or PC version]
  • Automatic Instrument Reconnection – Users will now have the option to automatically reconnect to the previous instrument. This will happen in 3 scenarios, when application start-up, when instrument resumes from hibernation, or when device comes back in range after connection was dropped. If the ”always auto-reconnect “option is checked, the instruments will be automatically reconnected without user intervention
  • New Project Creation Workflow – Project creation workflow has been revamped. All project settings have been centralized in one location, and can be saved as default for future use. This combined with instrument reconnection allows you to create a new project and go to map view with only 2 clicks, and greatly improves work efficiency.
  • User-Defined ASCII Export – User will now have the ability to define unlimited fields and formats in our ASCII export screen.
  • Multiple Points Backsight – New Multi-Backsight routine can be utilized to combine multiple control points/directions and calculate a more accurate backsight orientation.
  • Bluetooth Device Manager – Added a new Bluetooth Device Manager to store Bluetooth devices. When switching equipment, a user do not need to perform a new search, and the profile can be transferred to other data collectors easily.
  • NTRIP Caster Manager – Users can now save all of the NTRIP settings in the caster manager, and can switch between and connect to NTRIP casters without entering the settings again. NTRIP profile file can also be copied to other devices directly.
  • GNSS Tolerance Override – Users will now have an option to store GNSS measurements even when position tolerance is exceeded. Warning icons will be displayed when storing points with inadequate status.
  • Target Shortcuts improvements – You can now set keyboard shortcuts for the first 12 targets in your Target Manager. Each shortcut will set target type, EDM mode, and target height automatically.
  • Audio Feedback – Your data collector will now beep when GNSS Receiver loses RTK Fixed position.
  • Improved Stakeout Workflow and Graphics – Significantly improved stakeout graphics and workflows. In addition to the traditional map view, you can now choose Compass view or Grid view. Different viewing directions can be selected to suit your preferences, and our new “Next Point” routine provides you with a variety of options to select next point to layout.
  • An option has been added to display used/free memory on the map screen for WinCE based versions.
  • “Correction Age”, “Auto Skip Measurement statistics” and “Auto Store Measurement” settings has been moved to GNSS Tolerance Profile setting screen for easier management.
  • Added support for Columbia geoid GEOCOL2004
  • Added support for Korea geoid KNGeoid2013
  • Added support for New Zealand datum NZGD2000
  • Added support for Norway geoid NN2000
