Feature and attribute data are input with the manufacturer's Asset Surveyor software running on the TSC1 data collector, the TerraSync software running on a user-supplied Pocket PC or Windows CE device, the ASPEN software running on a user-supplied pen-based notebook, or existing data collection software. The system provides two-way data flow between the field and GIS, facilitating the data collection and data maintenance processes, and helping to ensure that users have current data for decision-making.
The system is used in a wide range of applications including digital mapping, utility asset management, environmental monitoring, scientific research, hazardous waste clean-up, municipal asset management, and natural resource management. Because this system integrates real-time DGPS, it is easy to navigate directly to an asset for verification and update. By taking advantage of these real-time features, users remove the need for postprocessing GPS data, further closing the gap between fieldwork and GIS. Additional features include:
Incorporates a 12-channel, differential beacon, and satellite differential receiver in one housing
Uses patented EVEREST multipath rejection technology to remove multipath signals in reflective environments
Supports NMEA-0183 input and RTCM SC-104 input/output
