Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 17, 2015
TerraGo, a pioneer of geospatial collaboration and enterprise mobility software, announces the availability of TerraGo Edge 3.4. For users who require high-precision data collection, this means they can now monitor GPS data in real-time, and capture the location when it meets their accuracy requirements. By providing an intuitive user interface and the ability to seamlessly integrate third-party GPS receivers of your choice, there's no longer a need for expensive proprietary handheld devices.
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of GIS and survey-grade GPS receivers that work with smart phones and tablets, there’s simply no reason to be invest in outdated handhelds.”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
