We will be using QField for structural measurement and geological mapping. Tablet and cell phone can measure plane orientation and dip. How can we set-up these measurement with QField?

  • What do you mean by "set up this measurement"?

  • Hi, sorry for confusion. It mean to create a field in QField. When you stop at a station, you take a direction of a structural plan, where the Tablet give you the orientation as well as the dip. You could "lock" these values in a field.

This isn't an option yet, you have to manually measure and enter the azimuth/dip. It could be supported as a future QField feature, there is interest in the geoscience community but needs leadership / money.
