Livermore, Calif. – July 31, 2012 – Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) announces that the new Topcon Tesla and the Topcon GRS-1 are compatible with ArcGIS Mobile utilizing the new Topcon eGPS GNSS configuration utility.
ArcGIS Mobile allows GIS users to deliver GIS tools and data to the field and utilize GIS data while adding accurate position and attribute information to GIS databases.
Jason Hooten, North American GIS sales manager, said, “With Topcon eGPS running on the Tesla and GRS-1, with ArcGIS Mobile you can tap into high-end GPS/GNSS receivers to easily update database accuracy and attribute information with one compact device.”
Topcon’s new Tesla is a “cross-over controller for all field applications and accuracies. The Topcon Tesla has the benefits of a larger handheld screen without the heavy burden of a Tablet PC,” Hooten said.
Topcon’s GRS-1 is a 72-channel, dual-frequency L1/L2 GPS receiver with an integrated cellular modem. It can be used to dial up to a local reference station network for real-time corrections and is scalable from sub-meter to centimeter level accuracy.
Hooten said, “The Topcon eGPS configuration utility enables ArcGIS Mobile users to access Topcon’s full range of GPS products for any accuracy needed in the field. Now all accuracy levels are available for ArcGIS Mobile users with a simple interface.”
