Introducing Geoida

Geoida® is a software product that will benefit members of the surveying and related professions, providing intelligent and flexible processing, adjustment and reporting of spatial survey data, from day-to-day pick-up surveys to complex networks of geodetic scale.

Developed particularly for Australian requirements but with global application, Geoida uses rigorous geodetic formulae to coordinate points using user-definable parameters for any ellipsoid, geodetic datum or Transverse Mercator projection; but it can also compute on the plane if required. Geoida processes field observations, performs least-squares network adjustments including combined GNSS and terrestrial observations, and converts and transforms coordinate data between different datums and systems. It also extracts and reports inverse details and exports point data in various formats suitable for other software.

If you are frustrated by plane-geometry survey software that's missing those essential geodetic computations, transformations and refined adjustments necessary in today's spatially-aware world, Geoida presents a new world of function and flexibility.
