Laser Technology, Inc. Releases LaserGIS for ArcPad Print E-mail
Written by Laser Technology   
Saturday, 02 October 2010

A new ArcPad® software extension that makes field data collection quicker, easier and safer!

Centennial, Colo. September 1st , 2010 – Laser Technology, Inc (LTI) just announced the release of LaserGIS for ArcPad®. This new software extension truly maximizes field work productivity because it complements the current ArcPad® platform and workflow, and significantly enhances its laser measurement capabilities.

Integrating lasers with GPS to remotely position features is becoming increasingly popular in the GIS industry because of the mere fact that you do not need to physically occupy the feature you want to map. LaserGIS allows you to easily record laser offset data with any GPS or by using existing features or coordinates on an ArcPad® map. The software also has a "Quick Traverse" routine which allows you to easily map in a large polygon. Once completed, you can determine the percent error of closure on the traverse and calculate the perimeter distance and area contained within the boundary.

Collecting and recording attribute data within your GIS has never been faster. LaserGIS automatically imports your height measurements, as well as any other measurement from the laser, right into your data attribute forms. To take it a step further, you can even refer to the trace file that automatically logs all the raw data for every laser shot you take.
 
“This is the first time any field data collection software has ever been able to ‘catch up’ to all the full capabilities found in our TruPulse 360 compass laser,” says Paul Adkins, Marketing Communications Manager of Laser Technology. “Using a laser to collect field data can certainly save you time, but it still has to work seamlessly with GIS software to be truly beneficial to this market.”

Connecting your LTI laser to ArcPad® and configuring your options can now be done quickly within LaserGIS. Toggling on the "Rapid Fire" mode will allow you to map and record multiple targets without ever touching the screen. Automatically apply Declination settings based on your map or GPS location simply by checking a box within the set up menu. Make a quicker connection, take fewer steps and have more flexibility than ever before with LaserGIS for ArcPad®. This is a true integration between lasers and GIS.
