FieldGenius for Android™ 1.5

Alphanumeric Point numbering

Users can now use alphanumeric point numbering to provide more meaningful identification of the observed points. The points can have letters before and after a point number. This can help users in the field identify different types on points by the number alone.

Tilt Measurement support

Support for the tilt measurement feature on select GNSS receivers that utilize the IMU tilt technology.

Import DXF files as xRef background layer

Allows a user to import a CAD DXF file from a desktop CAD program. The DXF file can be imported as either an import where all points and lines are added to the project database or as an xRef background image.

Select DXF elements and add to project data

On the xREF data panel a Selectable toggle is now available for .dxf files. With the toggle on the user can tap a .dxf point or line element on the map and then choose to add it to the project database. A user can then stake the point or line or include the line segment as part of a line when editing.

Raw Data Logging

Users can enable raw data logging when setting up a GNSS Reference receiver if raw data logging is supported on the receiver.

Stake Points and Lines

Users can now quickly stake a point or line from the survey map view screen. Open the Point or Line data panel and select a point or line and then the STAKE option. The application will open the staking screen and set the point or line as active for staking.

Curves Survey, Staking, Import/Export

Users can now stake to a point on the curve line.  A blue navigation line and navigation solution displayed in the observation toolbar will help the user navigate to a point on the curved line. 

GNSS Report

Users can now create a GNSS report of project observations that can include up to 56 different data elements.

Custom Code List

Users can now customize the points code list with new codes and save it as a custom code file.  When creating a new project users can now select a custom code file to use with the project.

Improvement Program

FieldGenius for Android™ 1.1

Small Form Factor

Users may now run FieldGenius for Android on their smaller devices, such as small tablets and phones under 6” in screen size. Adjustments to the interface have been made to provide optimal usability on a small screen.

Reference Profile Creation

Users may now create reference profiles when creating new instrument profiles. Reference stations are commonly referred to as base stations, and the reference profile allows the user to store important information about the receiver they intend to use as their RTK base station.

Radio Configuration

Users may now configure radio settings for both Rover and Reference profiles, allowing Base/Rover RTK setups. Users may set radio frequencies, base station ID preferences, message formats, and more.

Internal GNSS Connection

Users may now select the internal GNSS receiver of their android device as their instrument. This allows users to take GIS-grade observations and view their position within a project without any Bluetooth connections. Users can also stake out points while using this method, providing a convenient way to quickly locate survey evidence without being connected to a receiver.

Geoid Catalog

Users may now download their preferred geoid directly to their device, to be used immediately within their project setup. This removes the necessity for storing unnecessary geoid files on your device, or for manually downloading them and transferring them to the device separately. MicroSurvey’s entire geoid catalog is available for download.

Stake Report

Users may export a CSV-format stake report of points staked in their current project. This allows easier data validation and confirmation. Exported reports may be easily shared via email, SMS message, or any of several other services that allow sharing on android devices.
