Taking GIS360 to a new dimension

Berlin, Germany (7 October 2014)-- New from Carlson Software and Carlson EMEA is Carlson GIS360 for Android, an easy-to-learn and -use mobile field GIS-GPS tool that utilizes both GIS and surveying technologies for field data collection.

“Taking advantage of the graphics processing power of Android devices, GIS360 now includes an innovative 3D viewer so the user can see data and models in 3D on site,” says David Loescher, Carlson U.K. Sales Director and Director of GIS360 Development.

In addition to allowing field crews to navigate maps and collect and report data all in the field, GIS360 provides the data and fully rendered models of mines, earthworks and pipe networks can that can be viewed in 3D. The software’s unique “Siteview” function uses the Android devices’ built-in GPS, compass and gyros to give the user the view of the site that is in front of him.

Carlson GIS360 provides a wireless connection to any map server of choice, so users are never without a map. This saves considerable time and effort as field crews can verify that all of the data collected is accurate before leaving the site. No costly site revisits are necessary and no office work is needed.

The software’s “cloud” options mean that users’ data is always backed up with the ability to share between field and office in real-time. GIS360 goes beyond just positioning as it also includes a wide range of tools for Mobile Workforce Management, GPS data collection, tracking and asset maintenance.

Utilized on an Android tablet or smart phone, Carlson GIS360 for Android can take GIS data anywhere. The built-in GPS and compass instantly calculate what the user is looking at and then displays the data automatically.

“The GIS360 development team set out to make the collection of asset information easier and more efficient by combining the power of GIS360 with affordable Android devices,” adds Loescher. “The result not only saves a lot of field time, but also makes the process far easier for everyone concerned.”
