Livermore, Calif. – July 14, 2009 – Topcon Positioning Systems’ (TPS) new IP-S2 3D mobile mapping system will be on display at a special Ride & Drive exhibit at the annual ESRI User Conference in San Diego (Booth 1621), July 13-17.
Demonstrations of the new technology, which features dual-frequency GNSS tracking, high-accuracy IMU integration, odometry, and flexible vehicle mounting options, start at 9 a.m. and run on the half-hour throughout each day of the exhibit. The IP-S2 provides fast, safe GIS data collection at a cost well below conventional ground mapping methods.
Richard Rybka, TPS IP-S2 product specialist, said, “The Ride & Drive demo is a hands-on way to experience 3D mapping at normal speeds from the safety of a vehicle. The system maintains accuracy in areas with obstructed sky view. Data can be exported to GIS and brought back into the field on Topcon’s hand-held GPS devices for GIS data update and maintenance.”
Product specialists will be available at the Topcon booth and during the demo drive to answer any questions about the IP-S2 mapping solutions.
