Carquefou - France - Magellan Professional is introducing GPSDifferential for ESRI ArcPad 8, a post-processing software extension for the MobileMapper 6 with ArcPad 8 mapping application. The GPSDifferential for ArcPad 8 enables the MobileMapper 6 GIS/GPS handheld receiver users to achieve outstanding sub-meter accuracy for GIS data collection and mapping at low cost. “Today, there is no other product on the market which can provide a similar GPS accuracy for this price range”, said Jacek Pietruczanis, GIS Marketing Manager of Magellan Professional. “I encourage the mobile GIS customers to read our latest white paper online to learn how our device beats its competition."

GPSDifferential for ArcPad 8 software extension automatically logs the raw data that is required for reliable sub-meter post-processed differential corrections, even where real-time corrections are not available. The raw data file stored by this software extension can be post-processed using MobileMapper 6 Office, which is included in the GPSDifferential for ArcPad 8 offer. Post-processed data is exported with attributes in shapefile standard format.

MobileMapper 6, a state-of-the-art rugged GPS device providing sub-meter post-processed accuracy for GIS data collection and mapping, has a unique position and performance in the market today. No other GIS/GPS receiver can provide similar GPS performance and accuracy for an equivalent price point. MobileMapper 6 is particularly appealing to forestry and other natural resource organizations, oil and gas, agriculture, utilities, government agencies, and businesses large and small that need a highly-rugged, easy-to-use mobile GIS device at low cost, but which can also deliver sub-meter accuracy.

About MobileMapper 6 GIS/GPS device

MobileMapper 6 provides a complete set of features for anyone who needs productive data collection and efficient asset management in the field. Unlike consumer-grade units, the low-cost, easy-to-use MobileMapper 6 offers full compatibility with popular GIS software, such as ESRI ArcPad 8 or the Magellan Professional proprietary mobile mapping application to enable companies to select and use their GIS software of choice.

MobileMapper 6 comes standard with Microsoft Windows Mobile version 6, along with Bluetooth for wireless connectivity, and an integrated 2-megapixel camera.

The rugged design of the MobileMapper 6 is impact resistant and water- and dustproof for use in harsh field conditions. It is able to withstand a one-meter drop to solid ground and can withstand accidental immersion in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes.

Data collection is enabled by 128 MB of non-volatile Flash data storage, and storage of large amounts of field date is made possible through a Secure Digital (SD) card slot that accepts SD cards with up to 4 GB of memory.
