Create a Safer Mapping Environment That Maintains Data Accuracy

by TNyland 1. August 2018 12:00

For years field crews have faced challenges in capturing high-accuracy 3D locations in hard to reach locations. Not only have field crews put themselves in danger, they've been working with inefficient workflows that require extensive training, tools and programs making many tasks tedious and timely.

World's First Laser Offset Solution

Three companies have partnered together to keep up with market demands for hard-to-reach, high-accuracy mapping with an emphasis on creating a safer workspace and quicker solution. Laser Technology, Inc., (LTI), Eos Positioning Systems® and Esri®™ collaborated on the development and creation of the world's first laser offset mapping solution in the Collector for ArcGIS workflow!

The integration of the Esri Collector for ArcGIS®, LTI's Laser Rangefinder solutions and Eos Arrow Series™ GPS/GNSS receiver, allows your field crew to operate in GNSS-impaired environments at centimeter-accurate levels without sacrificing accuracy or needing to leave the collector/AGOL environment: establishing a highly efficient workflow in a low-risk area. This combination of technology amounts to a total station-like workflow completely within the Collector environment when using laser rangefinders and RTK GNSS.

Field crews can now seamlessly capture, measure and share their centimeter-accurate asset data into ArcGIS online and in real-time. This solution was designed to provide numerous offset-mapping methods and creating freedom of choice for users by integrating any laser option for their preferred accuracy.

This solution is extremely beneficial in areas where GNSS does not work, and for locations that are dangerous to occupy, including roadways, trenches, forests and urban canopies. Not only does this solution increase accuracy and efficiency, it also reduces safety liabilities, making it the best solution out there for you and your crew.
