The MicroSurvey Difference

MicroSurvey is a software company embedded into the GIS and surveying industry. Providing a multitude of programs to empower both individuals and corporations, their software is distributed worldwide.

Using their own products, you can have confidence in the quality and performance of their software, which ranges from CAD all the way back to data collection.

MicroSurvey has been working with (and building tools for) surveyors for over twenty years, and understand what you need to complete your tasks, calculations and drawings.


  • Code-free linework: Linework is created automatically without entering codes and is instantly displayed, eliminating the need for a separate sketch. No need to connect the dots back at the office.
  • Advanced display with high-def graphics and intuitive interface: FieldGenius is laid out with logical icons, customizable toolbars, smart objects and easy to use GPS and total station controls.
  • Easy stakeout: Choose between graphical compass, grid, and map staking modes to easily stake out points. Viewing direction can be adjusted based on your preferences.
  • Works on more displays than ever: High-defintion, standard (or legacy) definition, widescreen, portrait, tablet-style - you name it.
  • Productivity tasks: Customize your data collector by assigning commands to your keypad keys.
  • Calculating tools: Access the built in RPN calculator from any edit field.
  • Hardware freedom of choice: FieldGenius works with many GPS receivers, unlike our competition where proprietary software must be used with the receiver (or visa versa). FieldGenius also works on a multitude of hand-held data collectors. We believe you shouldn't have to buy all new equipment just to upgrade one component.
  • Their extras, our features: advanced roading, surfacing, slope staking, smart-points, DXF & LandXML import/ export and full robotic and GPS support. FieldGenius is the choice of organizations that value productivity.

MicroSurvey STAR*NET 9 is an easy-to-use Windows application that adjusts 2D/3D survey networks using rigorous Least Squares techniques.

STAR*NET handles networks containing conventional observations combined with GPS vectors, with up to 10,000 adjustable stations.

Differential levelling observations can also be included within a 3D adjustment.

Whether a survey consists of a single-loop traverse or a complex network of interconnecting traverses, all observations are adjusted simultaneously to produce a single best-fit solution.

STAR*NET can reduce observations to NAD27, NAD83 or UTM with separate grid factors calculated for all distances and t-T corrections calculated for all angles.

There is no other Least Squares tool available that is as comprehensive as STAR*NET. With a graphical display of your entire survey network, you will find it easy to tighten things up. With computed error ellipses, angular closure errors, easy-to-understand adjustment statistics, a preanalysis routine and a blunder detect function you will be able to identify and stamp out every single weakness in your survey network. Then, the final results can be sent off to MicroSurvey CAD, AutoCADĀ® or popular COGO programs.

A large number of converters are available to process measurements and GPS information from TDS, Carlson, MicroSurvey, and more. Some manufacturers even provide STAR*NET converters for their own data, because STAR*NET is the most widely used Least Squares Adjustment program.
