FieldMove Clino is a digital compass-clinometer for data capture on your Android phone, designed for simplicity in the field, and optimized to use the device’s GPS location and orientation sensors. This geology app will allow you to use your phone as a traditional hand-held bearing compass as well as a digital compass-clinometer for measuring and capturing the orientation of planar and linear features in the field. FieldMove Clino allows you to quickly take large amounts of measurements, making your data set much more statistically valid. You can also capture and store georeferenced digital photographs and text notes.
As well as supporting online Google Maps, FieldMove Clino also supports offline maps, so that you can import your own georeferenced basemaps and collect data while disconnected. Data can be exported as MOVE, CSV or KMZ files and then imported directly into FieldMove™, Move™ or other applications like Google Earth.
FieldMove Clino Additional Features:
-- Display geological data on an equal area or equal angle stereonet, allowing you to perform some basic statistical analysis in the field
-- A new expanded library of symbols for customisation of planar and linear features
-- Export KMZ data into Google Earth

NOTE: FieldMove Clino is only available for smart phones as we found this was the best form-factor for data collection. It will currently NOT run on tablet devices. Cost (as shown in the screenshots) will depend on the location of the user.
FieldMove Clino is a Midland Valley geological field mapping app designed for forward thinking geologists utilising digital data collection.
The use of GPS devices and smartphones as navigation aids.
Global Positioning System (GPS) devices are commonly used to aid navigation, having grown in popularity over the past decade. Over the last few years, this has extended to smartphones and digital compasses, which are often equipped with GPS functionality.
GPS is a valuable aid to navigation during fieldwork, although it is important to keep safety at the forefront, and we draw your attention to the advice given by a number of mountaineering councils:
“Everyone heading into the hills needs to learn how to read a map, and be able to navigate effectively with a paper map and traditional magnetic compass, especially in poor visibility”.
Midland Valley will accept no liability or loss, resulting from the use or misuse of this product.
