Map Assets Without Having to Physically Occupy Them
Eos is excited to bring you the world’s first laser mapping solution for Esri’s ArcGIS apps. The Eos Laser Mapping™ solution is for field crews that need to map hard-to-occupy assets with 3D, survey-grade accuracy — without having to physically stand on top of every single point. This is great when the assets you need to collect are located in environments that are either GNSS-impaired (with poor line-of-sight to positioning satellites), or in areas that are difficult and dangerous to reach. Eos Laser Mapping™ is currently available for iPad and iPhone as a free solution, in conjunction with our partnerships between Esri and Laser Technology (LTI).
Key Benefits of Eos Laser Mapping™
Increase Accuracy and Efficiency
Eos Laser Mapping™ lets a technician stand hundreds of meters away from his target, while collecting it with submeter or centimeter accuracy.
Keep Crews Safer
Keep your crews safer when they can map assets, such as a manhole located in a busy street intersection, from a safe distance away.
Choose From 3 Mapping Methods
With three laser mapping methods to choose from, you can pick the workflow that provides the greatest combination of mobility and efficiency.
What Are The 3 Eos Laser Mapping™ Methods?
Choose From 3 Laser Mapping Methods
Range-Azimuth, Range-Backsight, and Range-Range
Customers interested in Eos Laser Mapping™ can choose from three methods: Range-Azimuth, Range-Backsight, and Range-Range (sometimes called “Range-Intersect”). Play the video for an overview of all three methods, and which method is best for which type of data collection. All three methods require the following equipment:
- An Arrow Series® GNSS ReceiverRA, RB, RR
- Eos Tools ProRA, RB, RR

What Customers Say about Eos Laser Mapping™
“With the laser offset, I don’t have to guess where my points are now. I can actually get pretty close. Depending on how close I am to buildings, I can get as good as 20 centimeters.”Dann BlockLead Gardener (formerly), Woodland Park Zoo
“This Eos Laser Mapping™ solution has saved our drafters hours. In the survey world, that’s the difference between the project being profitable or just breaking even.”Mike GeorgeProject Manager and GISP, DDSI Global
“The laser mapping solution’s tight integration with Esri’s ArcGIS Collector and Laser Tech rangefinders make the Arrow product line extremely versatile.”Chris KahnProfessional Drone Pilot and Founder, Drone Imagery Lab
