Software

Software Field-Map consists of three separate modules: FM Project Manager, FM Data Collector and FM Inventory Analyst.

Field-Map Project Manager is used for preparation of your project using friendly user interface without any need of programming skills. You can import your maps, aerial images, data of previous measurement, look-up list of species etc. Field-Map project can be adapted to any common methodology.

Having database structure ready it is possible to start the fieldwork immediately. Field-Map Data Collector automatically adjusts its interface according to the user project. Field-Map directly supports field electronic measurement devices (GPS, laser rangefinder, electronic inclinometer, electronic compass, electronic caliper) and gives the user possibility to map and measure in the field.

After all the measurements are done, the data are analysed using Field-Map Inventory Analyst.

Hardware

Field-Map software provides a smooth communication between field computer and external measurement devices. Field-Map can use various sets of devices. An example set for three dimensional mapping of forest ecosystems includes laser range finder combined with an electronic inclinometer, an electronic caliper for measuring tree diameters and a GPS (global positioning system) used for georeferencing field measurements. The whole technology is operated by PC compatible field computer running Field-Map software.
