Point of Beginning

Topcon GIS data collection and land survey system

April 1, 2006


Topcon introduced the GMS-110, an integrated GIS data collection and land survey system. The GMS-110 is designed to work with Topcon's FC-100 field computer; other field data controllers can also be used with the system. Both TopPAD and TopSURV-GIS software applications can be loaded on the FC-100, offering the user flexibility in the field. The GMS-110 incorporates all of the primary position correction services-Coast Guard Beacon, WAAS, EGNOS and OmniSTAR-VBS. Internal lithium-ion batteries power the unit for 14 hours. Topcon's integrated system design and Bluetooth wireless technology eliminate external cables and components, making the GMS-110 a portable backpack GIS solution. (Topcon, Livermore, Calif.)
