TerraGo Edge Delivers Real-Time Centimeter Accuracy To Your Phone And Brings It Back To Your GIS

TerraGo Edge v3.5 delivers survey grade precision for field workers and data management tools for the GIS department

TerraGo, a pioneer of geospatial collaboration and enterprise mobility software, announces the availability of TerraGo Edge 3.5, which features seamless integration with real-time, high accuracy GPS receivers and the industry-leading Esri ArcGIS. While there are many data collection technologies in the market today, TerraGo Edge is the first to combine open, high-precision GPS support with advanced GIS data management in a mobile, cloud-based solution.

TerraGo Edge gives field operations and GIS departments the best of both worlds. For field operations, the TerraGo Edge app directly integrates with GPS/GNSS receivers to give mobile users dynamic monitoring and capture of high-precision GPS data on iOS and Android devices. For GIS departments, TerraGo Edge gives them the ability to define minimum GPS accuracy standards and then tools to monitor, QC and upload the data to the GIS system of record.

"TerraGo Edge is meeting the growing market demand for real-time, high-precision GPS data collection on mobile devices that allows companies to replace expensive, proprietary all-in-one devices with mobile phones and tablets that cost far less and offer superior performance and features, " said Jim Hodges, geospatial technology journalist and author of Breakthrough Tech: Smart Phones Poised to Take Market Share from GPS Surveying Handsets.

New features in version 3.5 include:

  • Sub-meter and cm-level precision with SXBlue and EOS GPS receivers for Android (iOS May 2015)
  • Full integration for Bad Elf GPS receivers on Android and iOS
  • GPS accuracy settings for GIS standards, data capture thresholds and field user warnings
  • Shapefile import and export added to growing list of data interfaces and formats
  • Updated user interface for faster and easier field data collection
