System requirements

We take at least Windows 7 (64 Bit) for the usage of metigo MAP as given. Computationally intensive processes like image rectification, image correction or data analysis are accelerated by parallelisation, so we recommend processor with at least 4 cores. HD-resolution (1920x1080) is needed for display.

2D- mapping:

  • SSD-hard disk (at least 256 GB) for current projects is recommended
  • large HDD for backup and extended project data (4 TB)
  • 16-32 GB RAM

3D- mapping:
  • SSD-hard disk (at least 256 GB) for current projects is needed, because project data for 3D models/point clouds are larger
  • large HDD for backup and extended project data (4 TB)
  • 32-64 GB RAM
  • graphic card for PC-gaming e.g. Nvidia GeForce with at least 8 GB RAM (CAD-graphic card with special drivers for CAD-applications is not necessary)

Tablet-PC:
  • scratch-proof display with integrated brightness sensor for automat. adjustment (sun light)
  • touch-function (for hand) shall be switched off
  • docking station with additional connections for usage inside the office (e.g. second screen)
  • rugged, fall secure case, protection against dust and humidity on site
  • battery with long run time, possible second built in battery for exchange while running
In general fokus GmbH Leipzig does not sell any hardware. Looking into this link you can find a recommendation of a tablet PC, for that we have got positive feedback from our customers about reliable usage of metigo MAP at the object: XSlate R12


It is possible to run metigo MAP on your MAC (Intel-based) by using Parallels Desktop or VMware Fusion. Thus for the use of metigo MAP the USB interface is to be unlocked.
