2.5.SexyTopo

SexyTopo is a developing Android application that aims to start where PocketTopo left off.  It will run on your phone or a tablet, and is best used in conjunction with a modified Leica Disto X310 (making it a DistoX2 to cavers).  SexyTopo is free, but you must buy your own disto, upgrade kit and computing device.

Still has a few unfinished features and rough edges, but is developing rapidly.  Not yet ready for 'production surveying'.

Strengths

  • Rapidly collect raw survey data and sketch around it (just draw, no Therion symbolic palaver!)
  • Many actions can be initiated from the sketch view (maintains focus on the task, not the application)
  • View the entire cave or just the current survey trip
  • Android devices are readily available (models with a precise stylus required, such as Samsung Note 3 or 4)
  • By default, sketches imported to Therion enable a permanent comparison of field notes with final drawing
