Westminster, US: Spectra Precision introduced Ashtech MobileMapper 10, the latest addition to its new line of GIS/GNSS smart data collectors. The MobileMapper 10 is a lightweight, low power and cost-effective mapping solution with real-time meter level accuracy.
GIS and location-based services (LBS) are being utilised by a wide range of organisations and data collection applications. “The growing need for geo-localisation is naturally boosting the demand for affordable yet accurate data collection solutions,” said François Erceau, general manager of the Spectra Precision, Nikon and Ashtech Business.
According to the company’s press statement, with MobileMapper 10, organisations can improve the quality of their GIS data, improve productivity and reduce operating costs. MobileMapper 10’s user-friendly efficiency enables virtually any operator to quickly learn and use the new mobile mapping solution. With quick logging operations for productive mapping and meter-level accuracy, the solution can improve the features and attributes for geo-positioning. In addition, the MobileMapper 10’s connectivity allows data communication between the field and the office.
According to Erceau, “the MobileMapper 10 is lighter (380g with battery) than competitive smart data collectors, offers a large display in a compact form factor and has exceptional battery life (typically > 20 hrs @ 20°C with GPS on).” The MobileMapper 10 runs the powerful Windows® Mobile 6.5, which offers the flexibility required to support a variety of GIS/mapping applications.
