Accurate position information for mobile CAD and GIS software

Leuven, Belgium and Vosselaar, Belgium -- Septentrio jointly announced with Pythagoras BVBA, developer of CAD and GIS software, that they have integrated key components to propose a complete solution, ready for geospatial applications. The solution combines the Pythagoras software with a highly accurate GNSS device called AsteRx-m™ GeoPod that enables accurate position measurements up to 1 cm level.

Supported within Pythagoras this RTK capable solution removes the necessity of using traditional professional GNSS equipment; field operators can perform sub-meter accurate positioning with ordinary and familiar user friendly tools. Centimeter level accuracy is achieved by connecting an external survey grade antenna to the receiver. The AsteRx-m™ GeoPod integrates seamlessly with Pythagoras thanks to the suite of GUI utilities RxTools and the configuration module RxAssistant, also included in the solution.

“We are excited to work together with Pythagoras to offer a fully integrated solution that is readily useable for geospatial applications,” said Peter Grognard, Septentrio’s founder and CEO. “It is a new example of how we generate value by closely cooperating with CAD-GIS software developers.”

“Becoming a Septentrio partner gives us the opportunity to develop client specific apps that combine Pythagoras CAD & GIS tools with geospatial information” said Jan Van Looy, Commercial Director and co founder of Pythagoras. “The combination with the AsteRx-m™ GeoPod fills this need.”

What can this mean for your organization?

• Field crews get the tools to easily locate assets, to accurately measure and to commit changes into the company databases.
• The solution can be used by any operators; it becomes easy for anyone to record geo-referenced information in the field.
• The IT department has the full flexibility to select the mobile devices that suit your applications best; it operates seamlessly on any professional tablet.
