MicroSurvey FieldGenius

Welcome to the MicroSurvey FieldGenius feedback and ideas forum. This forum is for you to use to offer us feedback about features you would like added or improved.

You have 25 votes that can be used, a minimum of one vote is needed per feature request. You can also use your votes towards existing features that other users have requested.

After a feature has been implemented, you will get your votes back to apply to new or other existing features.

How can we improve MicroSurvey FieldGenius?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. CAD routines

    Basic/simple CAD routines support provides ease of work. Trim, Fillet, Mirror, Copy, Move, Extend, Object Snaps, Circle, Layers support, and so on.

    • Add the ability to Double Code a point

      Would like the ability to double code a single point. For example, if an EP line and a sidewalk line end at the same point, I would like to be able to code the single point both codes, rather than take 2 measurements in the same location (1 for EP and the other for Sidewalk).

        • Leica Robotic Prism Search

          When doing a prism search with my Leica 1203, the instrument will lock on to the first prism it finds, which is quite often the backsight prism. It would be very helpful if you could have the instrument block out the backsight prism unless you are doing a backsight check. My understanding is that the Leica software will do this.

          Having the instrument lock on to the backsight prism everytime it loses lock on the roving prism slows your workflow down considerably.

            planned  ·  Yifan Xia responded

            In FG 8.1, you will be able to do power search in either directions by tapping on different side of the button. This allows faster search and avoids backsight prism.
            A more comprehensive solution is planned for a future update.

          • Ability to stake out points at intersections of gridlines

            If uploaded with a large number of grid lines, rather then have to pre-calculate all intersection points in the office, allow user to stake out point based on intersection of two selected lines. Would be like having a snap or tentative option for staking out of points on lines.

              This functionality is planned to be implemented soon.

            • COGO point creation by station / Offset

              Ability to create points at a given station/offset from a road alignment.  Currently, the only way to create a point at a given station/offset from an alignment is to physically stake out the station/offset and store it.

                  • Fieldgenius Text objects

                    I really do not understand why Fieldgenius designers landed into a decision of disregarding text features in Fieldgenius. How can I put floating notes in my map as the project progresses? I guess every surveyor need text features in Fieldgenius.

                              • Multiset - Improvements

                                Remove apply current orientation. This has given us some grief, field crews selects yes and the average BS reading from the previous multiset is recorded as the first measurement on the next multiset.

                                Turn Set - I would be faster if we could add the next point and turn a complete set (BS-FS- 2nd Face - FS - BS) without returning to the multiset until the set is complete. I would like FG to have an option to automatically set the orientation to zero on the initial BS shot. I would also like to be able to see the standard…

                                      • Post-process data in real time

                                        The idea sounds somewhat strange, it is assumed that the raw data collected on the antennas are further processed in the office software maker Gps. But if FieldGenius could take those raw data and could process them and correct them at the same moment in which you are measuring, or after collecting them, activate a box that makes the correction and display them on the map with a nomenclature such as "corrected". that would be great, because we save processing time at the office, or we could use at that time, if necessary.
                                        Obviously, the solution for the processed points…
