[SatNews] Septentrio, a designer and manufacturer of GNSS receivers, has launched a new software suite called PinPoint-GIS, which is designed to make GIS data collection and visualization straightforward.
Septentrio’s PinPoint-GIS provides several methods of data collection, based on a standard web browser hosted on the Altus APS-NR2 and a mobile app integrated with Esri’s ArcGIS or other GIS mapping systems. Users of PinPoint-GIS benefit from bringing the data-collection process into their familiar GIS environment, Septentrio said. Data collected with Altus and Septentrio receivers is directly available in the user’s GIS application. This data is processed into the database without any intermediary steps, greatly reducing the time and complexity of the collection process for the user. This allows the user to focus on the project objectives by easily customizing and updating maps instead of losing time on the mechanics of data collection and transmission.
Altus APS-NR2 and GeoPod are well known for providing consistent and accurate data. Thanks to PinPoint-GIS, this data becomes seamlessly integrated with the GIS database. The data becomes easily accessible to the field worker though existing hardware such as commercial and ruggedized mobile devices, regardless of their operating system.
Septentrio will be presenting PinPoint-GIS at Esri AEC Summit, held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt July 18-21, and at the Esri User Conference, held July 20-24. Both events take place in San Diego, Calif.
“By introducing PinPoint-GIS, Septentrio is committed to making accurate and reliable GIS collection as simple and cost effective as possible. Once installed, Pinpoint GIS works without user involvement to place high quality positions into the users existing GIS data collection tools by using the three components of the software,” said Gustavo Lopez, PinPoint-GIS product manager. “Thanks to PinPoint-GIS, Septentrio provides a seamless interface for capturing data in the field, customizing maps, access to data and user functionality. More field workers can get greater productivity from their existing GIS tools.”
