San Diego - ESRI International User Conference, 13th July 2010 – Ashtech Booth # 2715 Ashtech is unveiling today the ultimate GIS handheld for high-precision mobile mapping and data collection:  the MobileMapper 100.  MobileMapper 100 is the newest generation of Ashtech GNSS handheld mapping solutions; it complements the well-known MobileMapper family that includes the MobileMapper 6 and MobileMapper CX GPS/GIS data collectors. Like its predecessors, the MobileMapper 100 sets a new standard for mobile mapping accuracy. It provides real-time sub-meter, to centimeter accuracies in a rugged and very lightweight 22-ounce (0.62 kg) unit.

The MobileMapper 100 integrates an open operating system, built-in communications and Ashtech’s powerful BLADE technology. BLADE allows the MobileMapper 100 to deliver the high accuracies desired by GIS professionals, even in extreme GNSS environments, including urban and rural canyons and under dense canopies.

The MobileMapper 100 provides users maximum flexibility. It offers extended connectivity, including built-in GSM, Bluetooth, USB and RS232 communications and multimedia features like Internet access, E-compass, G-Sensor, and a 3M-pixel camera. The MobileMapper 100’s  GNSS scalability – GPS or GPS/Glonass configuration – and its compatibility with 3rd party networks (VRS, FKP, MAC) enables GIS users to experience optimal data collection virtually every time and anywhere.

Combined with either Ashtech’s MobileMapper Field software or any of the many third-party offerings from Ashtech business partners, the MobileMapper 100 offers the openness, flexibility and scalability needed to answer any mobile GIS application requirement. MobileMapper 100 is Windows Mobile standard for full 3rd party software compatibility and supports ancillary sensors interfacing. MobileMapper 100 supports the new ESRI Arcpad10 software.
