FieldMove Clino Pro Features: Available as an in-app purchase

*Upgrade to Pro Features for US $4.99*

FieldMove Clino is a digital compass-clinometer for data capture on your iPhone, 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 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.

Upgrade to these additional Clino Pro Features:

• Display geological data on an equal area or equal angle stereonet, allowing you to perform some basic statistical analysis in the field
• Draw contacts, faults and outcrops on your chosen basemap to create a realistic geological map
• A new expanded library of symbols for customisation of planar and linear features
• KMZ export, view your data in Google Earth

NOTE: FieldMove Clino for iPhone will scale up to fit on the iPad and iPad mini. 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.

Ratings and Reviews

Best geo app, something needs to improve


Awesome, but few things might need to be improved: 1. Import of Symbols 2. Viewing problems of imported maps 3. Hope for function that can import existing photos

Must have app in the field

U of A geo undergrad

This app is far superior to GeoID. The capabilities of it are incredible and very useful for field work on a mobile device. The ability to adjust declination, symbols on the maps automatically placed based on GPS, a strat. Column... I can't go on enough how awesome this app is. Fairly easy to use, a bit of a learning curve but manageable. I think the organization of it is a bit wacky (changing projects, adding notes) but bearable once you get the hang of it. A few complaints....the accuracy of the measurements (strike/dip) when compared to GeoID and a Brunton are a bit off. GeoID was consistently closer to the bruntons readings but the difference was nominal. Also when will this be available for ipad!? The larger screen would make it so much easier to use for the FieldMove pro features. I would literally replace my clipboard, pencils, mylar and maps in a heartbeat if this was on ipad. For now I'll hold off on the upgrade. Great app though. Thanks for the care and effort in it.

Wish I had this years ago


There appears to be an error with the calibration of the compass. My strikes are consistently 10 to 15 degrees off from a brunton measurement. I have tried numerous calibrations of both the app and the compass on the iphone. I'm using an iPhone 5s and I know there are some hardware issues, but the compass is ~10 degrees off from the midland valley fieldmove clino compass when held in the same orientation.
