Sub-meter GPS Solution Budget-friendly

Utility supplies: Most GIS professionals know that attaining sub-meter GPS accuracy typically comes with a high price tag. However, rugged handheld computer manufacturer, Juniper Systems, offers a budget-friendly, easy-to-use sub-meter GPS solution using Esri ArcPad, Effigis’ EZSurv Post-Processing software, and its ultra-rugged handheld computers.

This inexpensive sub-meter solution involves collecting GIS data using a Juniper Systems rugged handheld running ArcPad data collection software, and then using Effigis’ EZSurv software to easily post-process the data, resulting in sub-meter GPS accuracy. Users can import and export data, including custom attributes, from their GIS. This data collection process bypasses the need for survey-grade GPS receivers, providing both an affordable and simple solution for professionals who require sub-meter accuracy.

The range of applications that can benefit from this type of solution is broad, with uses in asset management, environmental monitoring, forestry, agriculture and more.
