TerraGo, a pioneer of geospatial collaboration and enterprise mobility software, announces a technology partnership with Eos Positioning Systems that is driving collaboration across company product lines and already producing field-tested, customer-proven results. The combination of the TerraGo Edge mobile GPS data collection platform with the Eos Arrow line of sub-meter and centimeter accuracy receivers, delivers a modern, cloud-based, real-time data collection capability that can’t be matched by traditional, proprietary GPS handhelds.
The proven results are in for water utilities, energy, engineering and customers doing all types of field data collection and survey work across numerous industries. While the working environments and the projects are very different, these customers are all using TerraGo Edge and Eos Arrow receivers on the job today to replace traditional GPS handhelds to achieve massive cost-savings and vastly improved productivity.
Enmapp, a pipeline inspection company based in Canada, was able to cut hardware costs by 85% while capturing sub-meter data in real-time, eliminating all the costs of post-processing handheld data. Summit Engineering, a Colorado-based engineering and land surveying firm, was able to reduce hardware costs by over 50% and improve productivity by more than 30% while surveying power lines in Minnesota for one of the country’s largest energy companies. Similar performance improvements and cost reductions are reported by joint customers in water utilities, forestry, engineering, agriculture and environmental operations.
“When we talk about Eos Arrow, we’re not simply pairing their receivers via Bluetooth, there are millions of apps that do that without any meaningful integration,” said Dave Basil, VP of Products and Services at TerraGo. “We interoperate with their receivers at the software level to ensure our customers get the full real-time GPS data set so they can monitor, alert and capture data that meets the highest accuracy and quality standards. For customers, it’s as simple as Bluetooth pairing, but we’ve done the work to turn their phone or tablet into a survey-grade receiver.”
According to Jean-Yves Lauture, Chief Technology Officer of Eos Positioning Systems, “TerraGo and Eos Positioning are strategic technology partners. This means that our collaboration goes beyond simple marketing and includes sharing core technology for the benefit of our customers. For example, we have been able to share Eos software components, which TerraGo has built into the Edge app. This integration provides the full fidelity monitor and lossless capture of NMEA data from the Eos receivers, including the Arrow 200.”
