Laser Maping for ArcGIS Field Maps Workshop
Date: March 25, 2021
Time: 10:30 AM – 1:00 PM MDT
Join Eos Positioning Systems with special guests from Esri and Laser Tech (LTI) for a virtual workshop on Eos Laser Mapping for ArcGIS Field Maps. Laser mapping is the process of mapping an asset without having to physically occupy its location, using GNSS and handheld laser rangefinders. In this free educational training event, you will:
- Learn about mapping in Field Maps using high-accuracy GNSS and handheld laser rangefinders
- Go over the various laser-mapping workflows/methods available with Eos Laser Mapping for ArcGIS, including pros, cons, and technology requirements of each
- Receive training on how to configure your Esri web maps for laser mapping
- View a live outdoor demonstration of laser mapping with Field Maps
This workshop will cover the following hardware and software technologies required for Eos Laser Mapping for ArcGIS:
- Eos Arrow GNSS Receivers
- LaserTech handheld laser rangefinders, including new support for legacy TruPulse 200L/200 and 360/360B/360R lasers
- Esri ArcGIS Field Maps
- Esri ArcGIS Online
In this multi-part workshop, you will learn the value of laser mapping in Field Maps and get an overview of the various methods available for your workflows. You will then view a live web-map configuration, followed by a live outdoor data-collection demonstration. This series of exercises is designed to provide a foundational understanding of laser GIS. A panel of experts from Eos, Esri and LaserTech is available at the end to answer all questions.
Collecting Remote Asset Locations Using GNSS, GIS Apps, and Laser Offset Mapping
Date: March 25, 2021
Time: 1 PM EDT
Map more, move less. By combining laser rangefinders with your GNSS receiver, smart device and preferred GIS mapping app, you can collect remote assets safely and efficiently. Learn about the different mapping workflows and the offset position accuracies you can achieve with equipment you already own. And, get to know the LaserGIS mapping solution, which is ideal for field crews that need to map hard-to-occupy assets without occupying every single point. Remove challenging barriers such as busy roadways, GNSS-impaired environments and unsafe or private land with the laser-offset workflow in the app, which is available in the market. Mike George, GISP, sUAS, of DDSI Global will demonstrate the app’s use in real world settings using lasers with drones, wireless attribute data and integration with GNSS equipment. He will also share lessons his team learned and how implementation was successful.
- Learn what a laser offset is, and the type of accuracy it achieves;
- Get to know the types of laser offset workflows within apps: Trimble, Leica, Eos, MapSmart – and find which app is right for you;
- Learn how to pair laser rangefinders with drones to collect remote asset measurements; and
- Learn how to collect laser measurements in the field.
