ikeGPS Helps Environmental Engineers Solve Problems
ikeGPS mobile GIS solutions have been deployed in a variety of environmental applications where engineers need to collect accurate GIS data for planning and remediation. ikeGPS allows field crews to collect the data without exposing themselves to toxic chemicals and other environmental hazards:
ikeGPS combines a laser rangefinder, GPS, digital camera, compass, and computer in a single handheld device. ikeGPS enables faster, safer, and more efficient field GIS data acquisition through standoff photo positioning: multiple targets up to 1000 meters distant can be positioned from a single location, enabling the operator to remain in a safe and/or concealed location throughout the capture process.
ikeGPS produces a geotagged digital image of each target location, with crosshairs showing precisely which target was captured and other relevant data superimposed right on the image - providing a new degree of verifiability, speed, and safety in GIS data acquisition.
...a heavily contaminated section of the Joliet Ammunitions site is to be converted to the Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie. The powerful combination of ikeGPS, ArcMap and ArcPad software helped the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to compile a comprehensive series of digital maps produced for the Joliet Army Ammunition Plant area. ikeGPS integrated and standoff field data collection functionalities significantly reduced time spent in the field collecting raw data...
