February 2022 Newsletter: GPS Helps BCI Locate Promising Habitats

Feature Story

/// Where the Bats Go

To locate potential bat habitats in abandoned mines, Bat Conservation International employs a new high-accuracy GIS-based workflow using Esri ArcGIS apps (ArcGIS Survey123, ArcGIS Field Maps & ArcGIS Collector) and Arrow 100 GNSS. After surveying hundreds of mining-related features, the team has identified a handful of potential habitats—which emphasizes how difficult and critical it is for bats to thrive in unprotected areas.

Al’s Corner: Technical Tips

Important Benefit of the Windows 11 Upgrade for Windows Device Users
The new Windows 11 operating system supports higher-resolution estimated accuracy values (which are reported by the device’s GeoLocation). Previously, in Windows 10, estimated accuracy was limited to integer-only values. This meant that applications storing estimated accuracies from Arrow GNSS receivers could not store submeter and centimeter-level values. (They would be rounded to 1m no matter if the resolution was much more accurate.) The new Windows 11 solves this. Now, applications such as ArcGIS Collector on Windows, which receive its coordinates from the Windows GeoLocation, finally support access to horizontal and vertical accuracy estimates down to the millimeter resolution.
