Minimum Hardware Requirements Digivey Survey Software

Hardware Requirements

the Digivey survey software has very modest computing power needs

Traditional Hard Drives

The recommended minimum hardware requirements are:

  • Windows operating systems 10, 8, 7
  • Intel Core Solo processor or higher
  • Min. 1GB RAM
  • Min. 30GB HDD
the average solid state drive delivers excellent data access time and data transfer rates

Solid State Drives

Among the benefits of choosing solid state drives over traditional hard drives are higher overall reliability (no hard drive to crash); faster data access time and higher transfer rate, lower power consumption in standby mode and virtually no altitude limitation.

  • Windows Devices: Min. Intel Atom processor or equivalent; min. 16 GB storage
  • Android Devices: Min. 16GB storage
lower power consumption is an important factor in face-to-face interviews

Selection Tips

If survey equipment needs to be transported frequently, choose a Solid State Drive over a traditional hard drive for longevity reasons. In general, solid state drives have several advantages over traditional hard drives: Higher overall reliability (no hard drive to crash); faster data access time and higher transfer rate, lower power consumption in standby mode and virtually no altitude limitation.

If survey devices need to be used outdoors and on occasion are exposed to the elements (sunlight, rain, snow), consider to select "rugged" computing devices/tablets with integrated outdoor capabilities.
