The GENE/GIST code package is developed for the investigation of plasma microturbulence, suitable for both stellarator and tokamak configurations. The geometry module is able to process typical equilibrium files and create the interface for the gyrokinetic solver. The analytical description of the method for constructing the geometric elements is documented, together with several numerical evaluation tests. As a concrete application of this product, a cross-machine comparison of the anomalous ion heat diffusivity is presented.
