PETROLEUM ENGINEERING AND STRUCTURAL GEOLOGY SOFTWARE

Digital Field Mapping

Digital field mapping applications for your smartphone and tablet. Collect data and build your 3D model in Move.

It’s very easy to get started in the world of digital mapping. Midland Valley has developed two new applications for field geologists: FieldMove Clino for Apple and Android smartphones, and FieldMove for larger touchscreen tablet devices using the iOS, Android and Windows operating systems.

Both applications have been designed by geologists for geologists and users will find the interfaces familiar and intuitive. The applications contain some short help pages and a more detailed user guide covering all aspects of the functionality.

The new version of FieldMove contains all of the functionality in the FieldMove Clino app, but this has been presented in a map-centric format for use on larger touchscreen tablets.
When you have collected sufficient data you can use the new drawing tools that include a virtual mouse for precision drawing, to create geological boundaries, fault traces and other linework on your basemap. It is also possible to create simple polygons to show the distribution of different rock types.

The linework that you create in FieldMove (and in Clino) is fully geo-referenced and this information is preserved when the project is exported to other applications. Getting your project out of the application is straightforward.

Data can be exported in three different formats: a Move(tm) file for direct import into Midland Valley's Move software for model building and analysis, a CSV file (comma-separated values, similar to an Excel spreadsheet), and as a Google Earth (.kmz) file.

 

FieldMove is designed for Apple, Android and Windows tablets and contains a virtual mouse which enables users to produce detailed linework. Summary of features:

  • Interactive editing of linework
  • Sketching on photographs
  • Digital compass clinometer with an intuitive interface based around your map
  • Import your own basemaps including MBTile and GeoTiff to work offline.
  • Cache the extensive online map services to work offline in the field.
  • Automatic data capture or manual entry
  • User defined list of rock units or stratigraphy
  • Digital notebook and camera within the app
  • Automatic positioning using the GPS in your device or manual over-ride
  • Easy editing of data and projects. Store and switch multiple projects.
  • Expanded library of symbols for planar and linear features
  • Stereonet display of geological data
  • Draw contacts, faults and outcrop polygons on your chosen basemap
  • Draw freehand on the large map, or utilise the Virtual Mouse for precision drawing
  • Export your data as Move, KMZ or CSV files to other applications such as MoveTM

 

FieldMove has been built with Qt, which is the same development platform used by Move. The application will run on Apple (iPad and iPad mini), Android and Windows tablets, but it is not designed and in most cases cannot be used on smaller smartphone devices.

Device Compatibility

iPad

iOS 8 and above running on iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad mini, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3.

WiFi and Cellular model is required for GPS sensors. We recommend at least an iPad 4, iPad Air or iPad mini 2 for better for ideal performance.

 

Android

Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and above.

Tablets must have a magnetometer, gyroscope and accelerometer for the orientation readings to work.

1GB RAM, 512MB free HDD space DirectX 9 or DirectX 11 compatible graphics (more detail is User Guide)

 

FieldMove Clino is a digital compass-clinometer for gathering geological data on your smartphone.

The app allows you to use your phone as a traditional hand-held bearing compass, as well as a digital compass-clinometer for measuring and recording the orientation of planar and linear features in the field.

You can also capture and store geo-referenced text notes and photographs within the app.  

The Clino app is free to download, but users can purchase an upgrade for $5 USD which provides access to a bigger library of geological symbols and enables data to be plotted on a stereonet. In the iOS version you can also create lines and polygons on your chosen basemap while you are in the field.

The FieldMove Clino app allows you to collect data ten times faster than with traditional methods.

 

FieldMove Clino been designed and optimised for compact iPhone and Android smartphone devices. Summary of features:

  • Digital compass clinometer for data capture on your smartphone
  • User defined list of rock units or stratigraphy
  • Digital notebook and camera within the app
  • Import your own basemaps to work offline, or use online map services
  • Automatic positioning using the GPS in your device or manual over-ride
  • Easy editing of data and projects
  • Export your data as Move or CSV files to other applications such as MoveTM
  • Expanded library of symbols for planar and linear data
  • Stereonet display of geological data
  • Draw contacts, faults and outcrop polygons on your chosen basemap (iOS only)
  • Export your data as KMZ for integration with Google Earth

 

FieldMove Clino been designed and optimised for compact iPhone and Android smartphone devices, and will only work on a smartphone using one of these systems. There is currently no Windows phone version of the Clino app.
