Altus Introduces Versatile Multi-Sensor GPS Data-Acquisition System for GIS Industry Print E-mail
Written by Altus Positioning Systems   
Thursday, 26 July 2012

Torrance, Calif. – July 24, 2012 – Altus Positioning Systems announces the introduction of a new GPS-based data-acquisition system for the GIS industry.

The new system from Altus includes an ikeGPS multi-sensor data-acquisition system and a variety of built-in software tools for specific data-collection projects.

The ikeGPS product combines a GPS receiver, laser rangefinder, 3-D compass and digital camera in a single ruggedized handheld device, providing a fully integrated low-cost solution for capturing geospatial data and 3-D GIS imagery. The versatile system permits the user to geolocate objects quickly and easily from a single location with the laser rangefinder and compass, using the recorder’s GPS coordinates as a reference. The digital camera provides a visual reference for each object captured into the database, and the system can even calculate position coordinates for target items directly from the photographs.

“The ikeGPS multi-sensor platform enables the capturing of GIS data in situations that would be otherwise impossible using traditional GIS equipment,” said Neil Vancans, CEO and president of Altus Positioning Systems. “The ikeGPS mobile GIS solutions provide unique improvements on conventional GIS data-collection efficiency. It also enables the user to capture accurate measurements of remote objects – for instance, across a busy highway, barbed-wire fence or stream – from safe distances with its point-and-shoot capability, producing verifiable, geo-referenced data collection.”

Vancans noted that for applications requiring higher-precision positioning, the ikeGPS device can be interfaced with Altus’ APS-3 GNSS RTK survey-grade receivers for centimeter-level accuracies.

Altus is showcasing the ikeGPS and other GPS/GNSS products in booth 2802 at the ESRI 2012 Users Conference in San Diego this week.
