Topcon makes creating a high accuracy GIS data collection system simple

LIVERMORE, Calif. – February 26, 2009 – Topcon Positioning Systems announces a GIS high-accuracy data collection kit for the new Topcon GMS-2 Pro.

“The kit gives GMS-2 Pro users the flexibility to easily increase their accuracy from submeter to subfoot when needed,” Barbara McInerney, GIS product marketing manager, said.

GMS-2 Pro is the new handheld GIS mapping solution that provides technological advancements like an integrated laser rangefinder to the GMS-2, the industry’s first GIS-GPS hand-held receiver with 50-channel dual constellation tracking, an integrated digital camera and electronic compass.

McInerney said, “GMS-2 Pro is an ‘all-in-one’ solution that gives GIS users a quick and easy solution to map features that are inaccessible or that have poor satellite coverage. Using the integrated laser distance meter, the user can map offset points without adding additional equipment in the field.

“The GMS-2 Pro also speeds up the data collection process while maintaining accuracy. The ability to measure heights and widths of objects or read barcodes and automatically store those values as GIS attributes is an extra bonus,” she said.

The kit can be ordered with a GMS-2 Pro and choice of software to create a complete GIS high accuracy system.

The GMS-2 Pro kit includes:

         -- PG-A5 external antenna with GMS-2 Pro cable;
         -- GMS-2 Pro pole bracket; and
         -- 2 meter pole.
