Trimble Catalyst Supports GLONASS

Trimble has announced that its Trimble Catalyst software-defined global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receiver for Android phones and tablets has been updated to support GLONASS. The update demonstrates the advantages of a software-based GNSS solution for delivering new functionality faster and easier. Access to the GLONASS constellation increases the number of GNSS satellites visible when working in the field. As a result, it improves the ability to maintain lock-on to enough satellites to keep working when sky visibility is limited or obstructed, such as under tree canopy and in urban high-rise environments. Users also spend less time waiting for the... (read more)

Viametris Introduces vMS3D for Vehicles

Viametris, a leader in mobile scanning technology, has announced the introduction of their new mobile scanning system for vehicles, the vMS3D. The mobile mapping system is dedicated to outdoors, roads and urban areas utilising innovative technology for localisation not dependent upon GNSS receivers and poor GNSS reception quality is no longer a problem. This technology is no longer tightly dependent on GNSS receivers. Based on unique technology, and years of expertise in indoor mobile scanning, Viametris has become a leading expert in mobile scanning in GNSS-denied environments. Mobile mapping systems allow rapid measurements, faster than any other technologies. But one main... (read more)

Stuttgart Showcases Data Capture Technologies - INTERGEO 2015

Data is essential for any GIS. Fortunately today there is a vast array of rapid data capture technologies. GIS Professional’s sister publication Geomatics World reports from the world’s biggest exhibition of geospatial technologies. Early autumn means a trip to Germany for the Intergeo event. This year it fell in Stuttgart (2016 is Hamburg then Berlin for 2017). As RICS’s James Kavanagh observes, “The event is always a hothouse of new ideas, geo-technology and a great indicator of how. . . global geomatics is evolving.” The three-day show attracted a record 549 exhibitors occupying some 15,000 square metres and some 16,500...
