DeLorme Extends Earthmate® PN-40 GPS Capabilities to Vast Community of ESRI Users

May 07, 2009 -- YARMOUTH, Maine─ DeLorme, a leader in GPS software and solutions for mobile professionals, today announced the release of its Earthmate PN-40 Extension for ESRI Software. This extends the PN-40’s powerful GPS capabilities to the vast community of ArcGIS users nationwide.

Specifically, ESRI users will be able to view their ArcMap projects on the PN-40 GPS receiver’s bright-color screen. Collected waypoints and tracks can then be presented to ArcMap in a shapefile format.

The ruggedized, waterproof Earthmate PN-40 GPS is also capable of displaying color aerial imagery, integrated topographic and street maps, places of interest, and nautical charts.

The device’s superior speed and performance derive from its 32-channel GPS chipset and a dual-core processor. Its 65K-color transflective TFT screen is easily readable in any light conditions.

This latest DeLorme solution for mobile professionals includes DeLorme USA Topographic Map Data, and supports MrSid and GeoTIFF aerial imagery files for ESRI ArcGIS users. RasterCatalog and scanned paper maps are also supported.

In addition, users can subscribe to the online DeLorme Map Library to access aerial imagery, USGS 1:24,000 topographic quads, and NOAA navigation charts.

The Earthmate PN-40 is already being used by a variety of outdoor professionals nationwide for collecting and verifying position data in the Fossil Fuel, Wind, and Electrical Energy markets, and for Search and Rescue and Public Safety applications.

When using the Earthmate PN-40 Extension for ESRI Software, mobile professionals can:

  • Cut views of their ArcMap projects for use in the field
  • Convert collected waypoints and tracks with associated comments for import into ArcMap as shapefiles
  • Display MrSid and GeoTIFF imagery files on the PN-40 
  • Collect distance and area measurements
  • Navigate rural terrain across DeLorme trail and road data
