Irish Surveyor Monitors Europe's Last Remaining Peatlands with Low-Cost, High-Accuracy Toolkit Based on Collector for ArcGIS and Eos Arrow 100 GNSS Receiver
Ireland—the name is synonymous with lush green wetlands and raised bogs, sometimes also called peatlands. But in a country noted for its lush greenery, only one percent of the national raised bog landscape remains in a near natural state.
Northumbrian Water covers a 2.7M-person service area including rugged and rural terrain. See how they used the Arrow receiver to map their assets and boundaries in the Eos September 2017 issue. Plus, learn how to set up mock locations with Collector for ArcGIS.
Tucked away in rural England, Northumbrian Water was looking for a technology kit that could improve its asset data. The water utility was on a tight budget and had limited staff, who needed an intuitive solution. By deploying the Arrow 100 receiver, Northumbrian Water was able to tap into the European EGNOS SBAS for differential corrections, collect high-accuracy data with Collector for ArcGIS, and increase internal confidence in asset data while keeping costs low.
Are you ready to learn how to use the four constellations for sub-meter GNSS mapping? This article shows you how the Eos Arrow receivers work with GPS, Glonass, Galileo, and BeiDou Sub-meter GNSS mapping has come a long way since WAAS/SBAS was introduced 14 years ago. At that time, it was just GPS. Glonass was
The four constellations (GPS, Glonass, Galileo, BeiDou) we use for sub-meter GNSS mapping have come a long way since WAAS/SBAS was introduced. Here's what you need to know about using these constellations for high-accuracy data collection today from the Eos March 2017 issue.
On December 31st, 2016, just before midnight, a positive leap second was inserted into the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). This leap second added to GLONASS may have introduced disruption at the exact moment. Arrow Series™ receivers affected (e.g., Arrow 200, Arrow Gold) will automatically update a new almanac.
With the help of local organizations, Le-Ax Water was able to map all its aboveground assets and create its first GIS in 2009. Then came the task of maintaining the GIS, which meant field crews would have to collect all new assets (e.g., valves) installed in the field. To overcome the challenges of training field crews on new technology and avoiding the connectivity issues inherent to working in an often disconnected, rural environment, Le-Ax went with Esri Collector for ArcGIS, Arrow 100, iPads, and the ODOT RTK network.
In this hourlong webinar from Esri and Eos Positioning Systems, rural water utility Le-Ax Water, from Ohio, explains how they overcame the challenges faced with managing their first GIS across a vast, rural, and often disconnected service area. To overcome the challenges of training field crews on new technology and avoiding the connectivity issues inherent to working in an often disconnected, rural environment, Le-Ax went with Esri Collector for ArcGIS, Arrow 100, and iPads. Hear from Travis Anderson of Le-Ax Water how the project allowed the utility to manage its assets with high-accuracy GIS.
