The 3D (XYZ) RTK GNSS solution for Esri Workflows
(Corvallis, OR) GeoMobile Innovations announces the release of GeoBullseye for ArcPad – Version 2, a software extension that turns Esri’s ArcPad mobile GIS software into the only high-accuracy GNSS, three dimensional (collecting XY and Z) solution supporting Esri workflows.
GeoBullseye supports accurate collection of positions and quality control GNSS attributes for confident deployment in horizontal “XY” and vertical “Z”, including GEOID12 for accurate Mean Sea Level (MSL) elevations.
GeoBullseye displays real-time estimated accuracies on the ArcPad main map screen and supports automated recording of GNSS/GIS metadata, including key horizontal and vertical accuracy metrics and real time differential correction status results. Version 2 collects up to 35 configurable “auto” attributes to support confidence in critical field data collection efforts. GeoBullseye is the only XY and Z centimeter accuracy RTK GNSS collection solution that can be tightly integrated in a fully disconnected workflow with ArcGIS as well as connected, real-time synchronization with ArcGIS Online (AGOL) and/or ArcGIS Server including SDE environments.
We are pleased to introduce an enhanced version of GeoBullseye for ArcPad to the market. It is a true high-accuracy GNSS 3D mobile GIS solution and can be deployed with today’s various Esri workflows” said Geomobile Innovations President Richard Ash,”we recognize that centimeter-level GNSS data collection is a strong trend in mobile GIS and are excited to bring that capability to the Esri environment.”
Furthermore, GeoBullseye Version 2 implements a rigorous 14-parameter datum transformation to solve a critical horizontal datum shift problem for the specialized positioning needs of North American GPS users mapping in NAD83 (2011 epoch) datum while utilizing satellite-based augmentation service (SBAS) such as WAAS or commercial services like Atlas, OmniSTAR, Terrastar, and Starfire. Those services produce coordinates that are referenced to the ITRF08 datum, which is substantially different (greater than 1 meter) from NAD83/2011, the national standard in the U.S.
“Professional groups such as small and large utilities, engineering, land, and natural resource impact consultants and more are seeking confident collection of high accuracy RTK horizontal and vertical positions and the ability to efficiently cycle this data to/from the field and update their GIS, perhaps when they return to the office or in real-time out in the field.” says Richard Ash, President of GeoMobile Innovations. “GeoBullsye for ArcPad is an easy to use solution that checks the critical ‘must have’ boxes for organizations that want to streamline their field collection to GIS backend workflows. It supports the key data elements necessary for reporting, and defending their horizontal and vertical GNSS data collection efforts”.
GeoBullseye V2 is priced at US$295.00. It is available for purchase through GeoMobile and authorized GeoMobile GNSS reseller specialists.
