Utility equipment: Capture and post-process GPS data for sub-meter accuracy

Utility tools / power measurement: Juniper Systems, rugged handheld computer manufacturer, and Effigis, geomatics solutions provider, have partnered to provide a powerful, yet inexpensive solution to easily capture and post-process GPS data to attain sub-meter accuracy.

Effigis’ OnPOZ Precision Positioning Software suite takes advantage of the superior GNSS performance Juniper Systems’ Archer 2 rugged handheld provides to collect high-accuracy GPS data. First, EZTag CE software is used on the Archer 2 to capture GPS field data points. The data is then sent to a desktop computer, where EZSurv® Post-Processing Software automatically post-processes the data to achieve results with sub-meter accuracy. EZSurv takes the hassle out of post-processing, requiring only the click of a button to run.

Juniper Systems’ Archer 2 is the ideal data collection tool for this software due to its ruggedized design, enabling it to perform well in any environments, as well as its enhanced GNSS receiver, which provides a reliable signal, even in heavy tree canopy.

“Achieving sub-meter GPS accuracy typically has two barriers in people’s minds. One, the hardware and software are usually expensive. And two, the thought of post-processing makes a lot of people cringe. The OnPOZ suite, on the other hand, is powerful, yet comes at a price people are comfortable with, and it takes care of all the post-processing for you,” said Jim Benson, Utilities & Public Services Market Manager at Juniper Systems. “The Archer 2 handheld really finishes off the whole package. Its GNSS receiver is outstanding, performing reliably even under trees, and the handheld is so well designed, you can count on it to work well in any environment.”
