Boosting Your Productivity with SuperPad 10
Conducting Field Studies with SuperPad 10
Field study is a data collecting method widely used in many academic disciplines such as geology, biology, archeology, agriculture, social sciences, forestry, and so on. As technology advances and research procedures become more complicated, we are more eager to find great software that can help us finish researches efficiently. In this case, SuperPad 10 will become an ideal choice which can provide you high accuracy in positioning as well as powerful GIS features. With the help of SuperPad 10, you would be sorely in control of all geospatial information in your research area.
Mastering Planning, Surveying, and Processing
Before a field study gets started, it is always important to develop a thorough plan first to ensure the survey can be done accurately, smoothly, and efficiently by field workers. The Layer Manager in SuperPad 10 will help the research lead assign works to every field worker with ease beforehand. And surveyors also can use this function to collect data with less effort. When a fieldwork begins, surveyors can report their work progress to their colleagues in the office instantly by streaming data with SuperGIS Server. Hence, the office workers can always keep track of the working status in real-time. If they find something goes wrong and needs to be modified, they can revise the original plan and inform field workers immediately. This feature would significantly reduce the probability that field crews collect incorrect data and come back in vain.

Editing with GPS
Layer editing is a very common function in mobile GIS software. The manipulation of SuperPad 10 is undoubtedly intuitive and straightforward for users, but this is not well enough for us. With the constant development of GNSS technology, the requirement for the accuracy of spatial data has become stricter. Since collecting data with GPS can increase the accuracy of point data, the layer editing function in SuperPad 10 allows users to add vertices with GPS. For field surveyors, creating points can be not only done by tapping the screen but also by GPS.

In addition to creating data point by point, SuperPad 10 also allows you to add vertices continuously and hence to create polylines and polygons with the help of GPS. With this smart design, fieldworkers no longer have to zoom in the screen until they can tap precisely. The only thing they need to do is moving and adding GPS vertices, which would surely save a lot of time and energy.

Positioning Accuracy and Satellite Geometry
Field surveyors may often want to know more about current GPS status to assure positioning accuracy. SuperPad 10 now provides a new interface for checking GNSS satellite status and geometry. You can check detailed information about how many satellites are in use right now and which satellite navigation system they belong to. With this function, the quality of spatial data you collect is guaranteed.

GIS and GPS, of course, are the main capabilities of SuperPad 10. However, the cases mentioned above are just some of possible scenarios suitable for using SuperPad 10. Supergeo believes that SuperPad 10 has great potential to satisfy other kinds of need and help users finish their projects easier and faster. After all, meeting the demand of all users is Supergeo’s ultimate value of design. With great system stability and flexibility of function modules, we hope every user can achieve their goal perfectly with the least cost. Where there is a field survey, Superpad 10 will always be your best choice.
