Visualisation of GIS Layers in the Field

Take all your GIS data into the field - image, grid and point, line and polygon. Interrogate values of your vector data to compare with your own field observations.

Waypoint Navigation

Navigate to your next sample or point of interest using the waypoint navigation tool. An alarm will sound once you arrive at the location. 

Data Collection

You can collect point and line data, as well as attribute data using dropdown lists to help data consistency and ease of logging. 

Desktop Mobile Project Tool

Set up a mobile project to take into the field, the mobile project clips data to a usable size, reprojects all data into a common projection and adds project metadata to assist with updating source data. 

The project can be exported to the field when checked out as a single geopackage file. 

Mobile Specific Table Validations

Configure your tables on your desktop to determine how they will perform in the field. Add columns to record GPS XYZ values that come off your mobile device. Set up image capture so you can take photos and link them with your collected data. Set up dropdown lists to assist with data capture. Configure default vaues and incrementation so a sample number goes up by 1 every time you collect a sample.

Meta data has been added to the mobile project to make updating your source data a seamless process.
