TerraGo Edge Brings Real-Time GPS to Field Workers at a Fraction of the Cost of Traditional Handhelds

 According to GPS industry expert, Davis Wildman, Principal, Newland Geo, “Proprietary handheld GPS devices are increasingly being replaced by BYOD solutions. TerraGo Edge on a smart phone with an independent GPS receiver offers users a better field data collection tool and high precision GNSS solution, at a dramatically lower cost of ownership.” He adds, “With a range of GIS and survey-grade GPS receivers that work with smart phones and tablets, there’s simply no reason to be invest in outdated handhelds.”

New features include:

  • Displays real-time GPS monitor while capturing notes in the field
  • Records all GPS metadata and attributes (e.g. satellites, horizontal/vertical accuracy, heading)
  • Capture button to lock-in current GPS state
  • View photo metadata information in note display
  • Additional online map sources from USGS, CartoDB, Stamen, and Mapquest

 “With 3.4, TerraGo Edge makes it easy to use the on-board GPS or a third-party GSP receiver to deliver the level accuracy needed for the task at hand. We are helping our customers give each user exactly what they need to do their job – and nothing more,” says Dave Basil, Vice President, Product Development, TerraGo. “Whether you need 5 meter or sub-centimeter or anywhere in between, TerraGo Edge gives users the precision they need with a modern mobile solution that delivers dramatic savings.”
