Revolutionizes Industry

Designed specifically for field professionals required to draw an accurate sketch and calculate area square footage and perimeter values, AreaSketch stands alone when compared to existing sketch solutions.  FreeForm Technology™ allows users to draw any sketch as data is being gathered, new areas can be created on the fly without having to finish the first area, switch drawing directions with Bi-Directional Drawing, placing a label, or other types of annotation is completely FreeForm.  Line dimensions can be edited at any time with point & click simplicity.  Calculator functions are included to allow the addition or subtraction of any value from an existing line to properly close the area.

Our advanced technology automates everything including Auto-Center and Auto-Scaling.  The sketch is always centered and scaled perfectly. Line dimensions can be flipped inside, outside, or turned off completely for each individual line or the entire area. 

Area names and types can be customized for every situation including the area multiplier and modifier capability.  The area multiplier will multiply the base area square footage by any factor.  The modifier function allows areas to subtotal to a specific area type but also add or subtract from another area. Duplicate area names can be used on the same sketch.

The 3 Phase Close function guarantees a perfect close every time.  AreaSketch always displays the exact horizontal and vertical distance required to close, or finish any area.  Clicking on the displayed distance will automatically draw that line.

The professional looking sketch including area calculations can be imported into forms applications, CAMA, or narrative reports as a jpg image.

Target markets are County Appraisal Districts, Appraisers, Insurance Adjustors, Builders, Estimators, Pest Control, or any industry requiring the accurate calculation of area square footage and perimeter values.

AreaSketch is the perfect scalable solution from personal to enterprise environments.  Using a nonproprietary xml file format, developers and end users have complete control of their data.  AreaSketch is available as a stand-alone product or as a development ActiveX control which can run independently or as an embedded component of an existing application.  For additional information please call FieldNotes, Inc. 512-402-0402
