MicroSurvey FieldGenius 7.2

MicroSurvey is pleased to announce the release of FieldGenius 7.2, a major service pack to its powerful survey field data collection software.

The latest release enabled the support for RTCM v3.1+ Transformation messages. Both horizontal and vertical coordinate systems can be streamed from NTRIP casters to replace or complement any pre-define systems.

We have also made significant enhancements to the Road Manager module. Multiple LandXML files can now be loaded in the same project, alignments will now support Station Equations and display station labels, and DXF file importation now supports all types of polylines. Be sure to check out the full details from the release note below.

Last but not the least, memory optimizations for point database and DXF files have been done to improve the overall performance on Windows Mobile based systems.

It is all part of our ongoing effort to ensure continued supports for our products.
