FieldGenius is a mature, professional and full featured field survey software that also happens to be easy to use. Skilled employees time is highly valued and training new employees is expensive. Enabling these employees to be at their most productive with robust field software is a worthwhile investment. If you don’t make this investment, things such as travel time to and from jobs becomes a burden. Crews need to revisit the office for calculations or for troubleshooting.

Be reassured that investing time training employees to use these tools will help them perform at their most efficient. These skills will also be fully applied the next time you need to invest in new equipment or switch to another instrument manufacturer as FieldGenius will be able to work with your crew from one product to the next. Invest in a workflow, instead of being married specific hardware that will become obsolete or brand specific software preventing you from being able to use all your gear.
Elegant and Simple
Familiarity is a comforting thing when it comes to technology. Customers have told us our code free linework is the best in the business. The way FieldGenius handles linework has not changed since the product was introduced in 2001, why fix what isn’t broken right? To create complex linework in the field you need to master three elements: The Mapview touchscreen, the three buttons on the topo toolbar and the active figures list. You do not need to modify point descriptors. FieldGenius makes it simple to create and edit linework.
