Septentrio’s PinPoint-GIS geographical information systems (GIS) are now available on the ArcGIS Marketplace. PinPoint-GIS enables straightforward GIS data collection, without the need for expensive additional software linking a GNSS receiver with the Esri ArcGIS Platform.

“Integrating ArcGIS functionality into PinPoint-GIS empowers ArcGIS Online users,” says Gustavo Lopez, PinPoint-GIS product manager. “With the click of a button, a PinPoint-GIS user can turn accurate and reliable GIS data collected from their Septentrio GNSS receiver into actionable data needed for smarter decisions, effective analysis and customized maps all within the easy-to-use ArcGIS.”

PinPoint-GIS helps ArcGIS users make informed and timely decisions. It turns GNSS data collected by Septentrio's receivers such as the Altus NR2, Altus GeoPod and the AsteRx-U into actionable GIS data. Height and other project parameters are available directly in the ArcGIS workflow without any additional steps by the user.

Pinpoint GIS makes ArcGIS easily accessible through existing hardware — consumer commercial and ruggedized device, tablet or even smartphone — regardless of operating system. PinPoint-GIS Web makes ArcGIS available from a standard Web browser or from an Android app, downloadable from Google Play.

The Android app works with Esri’s Collector for ArcGIS and provides an accuracy widget, which confirms horizontal and vertical accuracy in a highly visible way. This brings the user the immediate security that the captured data meets the required accuracy in both the horizontal and vertical.
