Altus Introduces the GIS1 at INTERGEO

The GIS-1 is a powerful PDA that integrates modern wireless technologies on a rugged Windows® Mobile platform for effective portable computing for mobile survey applications. It can be used as a data collection device with Altus’ APS-series GNSS survey instruments, providing up to eight hours of operation time in the field between charges. In addition, the unit’s built-in L-1 GPS receiver and 3.2 Mpix camera can be used for navigation and GIS applications. It can even be used as a smartphone.

“The GIS-1 is a versatile tool for surveyors and GIS professionals,” said Neil Vancans, president of Altus Positioning Systems. “With the Windows® Mobile operating system, it supports a wide range of software applications for data collection. By itself, the GIS-1 is a convenient low-cost GPS navigation device with 2.5-meter accuracy.”

“It’s ideal for GIS work,” Vancans added. “The user can quickly and easily locate assets with 2.5-meter accuracy with the GIS-1, then switch to the APS-3 for more precise RTK work if needed.”

The GIS-1 supports a wide range of wireless options, including WiFi, Bluetooth and a Tri-Band GSM/GPRS/EDGE/HSPA cellular modem.

At INTERGEO 2013, Altus will showcase the GIS-1, along with its full range of GNSS products, including the new TERRASTAR-D enabled receivers, which provide 10-cm or better accuracy anywhere on the globe without a reference station.

Attendees are invited to visit Altus’ booth (3C-103) for more information on the company’s products and solutions.
