Topic: Using your iOS/Android Smartphone or Tablet with High-Precision GNSS Receivers.
Summary: The mobile device market has been in crazy-mode for the past two years. Every month, a new smartphone or tablet is introduced, giving geospatial more choices than ever before about what they can take into the field. A $200 7" tablet? An iPad? A $1,200 ruggedized tablet? A Galaxy III smartphone? The mobile device smorgasbord is incredible. How do these devices behave as GIS data collection devices? Do they interface to high-precision GNSS receivers and other instruments? What are other companies using?
Join us for a look at the benefits and pitfalls of using consumer-grade mobile devices for professional geospatial applications.
