Support of external measurement devices (GPS, laser rangefinder, compass, angle encoder, inclinometer, caliper, field computer)

Field-Map provides for smooth communication between field computer and external measurement devices.

For three dimensional mapping of –for example- forest ecosystems, Field-Map may use a set composed by the following devices:

  • A laser range finder, which combined with an electronic inclinometer and compass are used for distance measurement and for determining vertical and horizontal angles. Horizontal angles are expressed directly as azimuths.
  • An electronic calliper, which is used for measuring tree diameters.
  • A GPS, which may be used for georeferencing the measurements.

    • The entire set of equipment can be mounted on a monopod or tripod suitable for the fieldwork.
