Leica Geosystems has launched a new GIS data collection solution, the Leica Zeno 20. It is an extremely accurate and intuitive solution, according to the company.

Leica touts the Zeno 20 as the first high-accuracy data collector tool that can run on an Android or Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5.3 operating system. Users can download their favorite Android apps to customize the robust and highly precise data collector into a device as simple to use as a smartphones.

“You don’t need training to use this highly intuitive software,” says Johannes Hotz, senior product manager at Leica Geosystems. “You simply open the box, and while charging the Zeno 20, watch 1 or 2 how-to videos, then you are ready for your first field job. GIS data collection has never been so intuitive and easy.”

The Leica Zeno 20 also offers two new flexible software solutions running on Android, the Zeno Mobile and the Zeno Connect. The Zeno Mobile is designed to provide an easy, flexible and efficient data collection workflow for the non-GIS and non-survey professional while the new Zeno Connect streams RTK-corrected GNSS positons to any app using the Android Location Manager.

In addition, the Zeno 20 offers a great deal of content, such as a free one year access to the new Hexagon Imagery Program or access to Open Street Map data. Upgradeable GNSS options let users choose the accuracy that fits their needs and budget.

The new solution is lightweight and compact considering it offers a bright 4.7-inch outdoor screen, a durable IP67 dust and waterproof rating, and a quick processor able to handle large amounts of datasets. It helps workers in the field get the job done more efficiently. By combining the DISTO S910 with Leica Zeno 20 hard-to-reach locations can be measured safely and with less hassle. 

The Leica Zeno 20 is available as of the end of June. Ordering information and details are available from all authorized Leica Geosystems representatives.
