Redesigned GNSS Local Transformation

All new easy-to-use interface

Ability to export/import localization files

Added 7 parameter Helmert transformation

Ability to delete or reuse control points

Improved scaling and many other options

DXF Enhancements

DXF Blocks are now supported

Extrusion vectors on various entities are now supported

Improvements to circles and other entities types

Layer visibility settings from CAD programs will now be honored

Added a dialog to show entities being during import

Advanced Point Averaging Routine

A new feature that allows user to take multiple temporary measurements of a point using either Total Stations or GNSS receivers, select the best ones, and calculate an averaged position for better accuracy and reliability.

Electronic Bubble Support

Tilt compensation/Rejection is now available on supported GNSS receivers that enables tilted surveying at corners or edges of walls

GIS Attributes for Figures

GIS Attributes are now supported for figures

Users can quickly select Default/Previous attribute values for both points and figures.

Roads Module Improvements

Alignment toolbar added to enable easy navigation between alignments and Roads Manager

Station/Offset/Cut/Fill are now visible in the observation toolbar and point database to display position relative to the selected alignments

Added the ability to arrange alignment label intervals and orientations

Unicode Encoding Support

Unicode is now supported throughout the program, which includes point descriptions, profiles, settings, exported files, and more.

ASCII Export Improvements

Added the ability to sort points by either time or point ID

Post-processing time markers can be exported in either GPS time or UTC time

The encoding of the export file can be either ANSI or Unicode

Added an option to export all measurements used for averaged points

More options are available for custom ASCII export formats

Basic Measure Mode

A new measure screen has been added for total Station onboard version that allows quick measurements without even creating a project.

Total Station Target and Measurement Improvements

Target and EDM updates are now more consistent between FieldGenius and total stations. Each measurement is noticeably faster

Dynamic Screen Rotation

FieldGenius now dynamically rotations between landscape and portrait mode on Windows 8.1+ tablets

Total Station Angular Precision Control

Angular measurements from total stations can now be rounded to different level of precisions.

FieldGenius 7.2


Roading Module

FieldGenius now supports loading multiple LandXML files, Station Equations, Alignment Labels, and have added all polyline types for the DXF format

Memory Optimization

Memory handling for point database and DXF files has been greatly improved, especially for Windows Mobile based devices.

RTCM Transformation Messages

The RTCM 3.1 Transformation Messages are now fully supported. When connect to an enabled NTRIP caster, this allows both horizontal and vertical coordinate systems being dynamically transferred through correction messages. No predefined coordinate systems are needed.

FieldGenius 7.0


Improved Stakeout Workflow and Graphics

Significantly improved stakeout graphics and workflow in FieldGenius 7, in addition to the traditional map view, you can now choose compass view or grid view. You can also select different viewing directions, and our new “Next Pnt” button provides you with variety of options to select the next staking point.

Instrument Reconnection Improvements

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.

Improved Project Creation Workflow

The third item is improved project creation workflow, We have centralized all of the project settings in one location, and can be saved as default. This combined with instrument reconnection allows you to create a new project and go to map view with only 2 clicks, and 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 Point Backsight

New Multi-Backsight routine can be utilized to combine multiple control points 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. A warning icon will be displayed when storing points with inadequate status.
