Mobile GIS expert and application solutions provider GeoMobile Innovations introduces GeoBullseye for ArcPad, a robust set of accuracy based tools for real-time high-precision GPS/GNSS receivers users of ArcPad 10.

Priced economically at $195.00, GeoBullseye for ArcPad provides functionality requested by high accuracy Mobile GIS users of precise real-time mapping grade and RTK centimeter based GNSS equipment. GeoBullseye release coincides with the increased market adoption and demand for high precision GIS data collection and emphasis on real-time data collection in lieu of post-processing workflows.

The toolkit provides enhanced real-time map level visual accuracy and GNSS indicators AND supports built in storage of key GNSS meta data as attributes including accuracy (estimated error), standard deviation, dilution of precision (DOP) and real-time correction results. “GeoBullseye for ArcPad is a solution for the many Mobile GIS users craving effective use of the many real-time high accuracy GNSS receivers now flooding the market. We are hearing about and encountering high-precision GIS users who are struggling with issues such as attributing high accuracy GPS data and applying accurate coordinate transformations in real-time”, says Richard Ash, President of GeoMobile Innovations. “GeoBullsye for ArcPad solves a number of GNSS accuracy related problems that has plagued high-precision GIS users.”

GeoBullseye supports key on the fly positioning adjustments allowing NAD83 datum mappers to realize the full potential of their high accuracy GNSS devices directly within the ArcPad environment. The software increases horizontal accuracy results of Mobile GIS GNSS implementations in some cases as much as a meter or more. Furthermore, it implements Geoid 12a support answering the request of ArcPad users requesting in field Mean Sea Level (MSL) based elevations rather than GPS based Height Above Ellipsoid. Via application of a rigorous 14 parameter transformation based on formulas published by National Geodetic Survey (NGS) , GeoBullseye specifically solves the horizontal datum transformation challenge faced by GPS WAAS users as well as high-precision, commercial SBAS services like OmniSTAR, Terrstar, and Starfire. Those services produce coordinates that are referenced to the ITRF (usually 2008) datum, which is substantially different (greater than 1 meter) from NAD83/2011, the national standard in the U.S and the current horizontal datum supported by the U.S. National Geodetic Survey (NGS).
