10 Reasons To Use MicroSurvey STAR*NET
Learn More
MicroSurvey STAR*NET performs rigorous least-squares adjustments on field measurements to provide maximum precision in your projects, regardless of sensor or manufacturer. STAR*NET not only integrates data from multiple hardware sensor types, such as total stations, levels, and GNSS receivers, but remains brand-neutral as well. This means that it also supports data from most manufacturers, including Leica, Trimble, Topcon, Carlson, Spectra, Sokkia, and many more. The purpose of this paper is to identify simplified workflows in STAR*NET which allow seamless integration into current processes and hardware arrangements, in order to support the modern surveyor as they aim to provide the highest quality data to their clients in the most efficient method.

3D Network Plot

The network plot has been updated to utilize a 3D engine to display 3D objects.Users can now use preset views to set specific camera angles to view the network, set a rotation point, and use a free orbit to rotate the network plot.


New automatic iterative adjustment allows a user to set maximum standardized residual values allowed in the project, a number of outliers to remove per adjustment, and a maximum number of adjustments.

Sideshot Detection

A new checkbox in the “Special” tab in Project and Company options will automatically detect M records (measurements) that create a point with no redundancy and treat them as sideshots in the network when adjustments are performed.

Online License Activation

A new licensing system has been added to STAR*NET, which provides more secure demo licensing and the ability to work without a USB key. USB keys will continue to work with STAR*NET 10, and will continue to be the primary method of licensing.
