RoboGEO System Requirements

Installation Program

Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000 or Windows NT/ME with the Windows Installer installed.

RoboGEO Application

Any relatively modern computer running Windows NT/ME/XP/2000/Vista/7. RoboGEO is not guaranteed to run properly under Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows emulators, or other non-Windows operating systems.

Digital Camera

A camera that produces EXIF format images (all modern cameras do).

A digital camera is not required if you'll be manually entering the location data.


RoboGEO directly supports both COM and USB based Garmin GPS units when downloading tracklog or waypoint data. A 3rd party utility that can export GPX files (like G7ToWin) is required if you're using any other GPS brand.

You can use any NMEA 0183 compatible GPS device (COM only) to log NMEA data.

A GPS unit is not required if you'll be manually entering the location data.

The Garmin GPS 60 model is a good low-cost choice.

Digital Voice Recorder

RoboGEO supports any digital voice recorder that meets the following requirements:

  • The dictation files must be saved individually and with disk dates that reflect when the dictation was recorded. All modern USB-based digital voice recorders that behave like pen drives will work.

  • The output format must be either MP1, MP2, MP3, WAV, OGG Vorbis, WMA, WMV or ASF format. If your system cannot play WMA, WMV or ASF files, it's because you don't have the Microsoft Windows Media Format Modules installed. Click here to install them.

The Olympus WS-310M model is a good medium-priced choice. You don't need a digital voice recorder if you're recording the dictation (or other audio) using other means and manually associating the audio with the images.

If your digital voice recorder saves audio in an unsupported format like some Sony models do, you can still use it - just the set the AudioAllowUnsupportedFileTypes preference setting to True.
