San Diego, US: Ashtech unveiled MobileMapper 100 at ESRI International User Conference 2010 in San Diego. It is a GIS handheld for high-precision mobile mapping and data collection. It is the newest generation of Ashtech GNSS handheld mapping solutions. Other members of MobileMapper family are MobileMapper 6 and MobileMapper CX GPS/GIS data collectors.
MobileMapper 100 provides real-time sub-meter, to centimetre accuracies in a rugged and very lightweight 22-ounce (0.62 kg) unit. It integrates an open operating system, built-in communications and Ashtech’s BLADE technology. BLADE allows MobileMapper 100 to deliver the high accuracies desired by GIS professionals, even in extreme GNSS environments, including urban and rural canyons and under dense canopies.
MobileMapper 100 offers extended connectivity, including built-in GSM, Bluetooth, USB and RS232 communications and multimedia features like Internet access, E-compass, G-Sensor and a 3M-pixel camera. Its GNSS scalability – GPS or GPS/Glonass configuration – and its compatibility with 3rd party networks (VRS, FKP, MAC) enables GIS users to experience optimal data collection virtually every time and anywhere.
Combined with either Ashtech’s MobileMapper Field software or any of the many third-party offerings from Ashtech business partners, MobileMapper 100 offers the openness, flexibility and scalability needed to answer any mobile GIS application requirement. MobileMapper 100 is Windows Mobile standard for full 3rd party software compatibility and supports ancillary sensors interfacing.
The company also informed its users through press release that MobileMapper 100 and MobileMapper 6 now also support new ESRI Arcpad10 software.
