Using high-accuracy Bad Elf GPS integrated with a laser offset rangefinder is an exceptional method for collecting remote data due to several key advantages. Firstly, it significantly enhances safety during data collection activities. The laser offset feature allows for non-contact measurements, eliminating the need for physical access to the objects being surveyed, enhancing safety protocols. Second, the high-accuracy GPS ensures repeatable positioning, allowing for precise geolocation of collected data points. Furthermore, the combination of high-accuracy GPS and laser offset significantly speeds up data collection efforts. The advanced technology streamlines the process by eliminating manual measurements, reducing human error, and increasing efficiency. Operators can cover larger areas in less time, enabling faster project completion and reducing overall costs.
The return on investment (ROI) for using high-accuracy GPS integrated with a laser offset is noteworthy. The accuracy and efficiency provided by this system lead to improved data quality and reduced operational costs. Precise and reliable data enables more informed decision-making, resulting in better outcomes and minimizing the risk of costly mistakes. The enhanced speed of data collection reduces labor costs and allows for more projects to be completed within a given timeframe, further boosting ROI.
The Bad Elf Flex GPS can be integrated with Esri Field Maps and LTI 360 Rangefinder to collect high-accuracy location data in access-limited situations. The Flex connects to the rangefinder over a wired or Bluetooth connection, and then the Flex connects wirelessly to your mobile tablet or phone to deliver positional data to Field Maps.
To use this integration, you will need:
- A Bad Elf Flex GNSS receiver
- An LTI TruPulse rangefinder
- An Esri ArcGIS (Field Maps) subscription
- A mobile tablet or phone with Bluetooth capability
