GeoMax PicPoint – Contactless GNSS released
8 March 2017
The new GeoMax PicPoint with contactless GNSS was released today.
PicPoint is the innovative way of measuring points not directly accessible with the GNSS receiver. For this reason, the system is called “Contactless GNSS”.
With the “PicPoint” you can easily measure points directly in the field that cannot be measured with conventional GNSS measurements, such as on façade points or objects with restricted access possibility.
“PicPoint” combines GNSS measurements with images taken from the PicPoint camera attached to the pole. The innovative X-PAD field software running on an Android tablet uses photogrammetric principles to enable a point determination, CAD drawings and various COGO calculations such as Area and Tie Distance. Of course, measured points are visualised in the image allowing a visual completeness check of your survey directly on site. If you should ever have missed to measure some points, this can then be done easily in the office.
In all the listed situations, the PicPoint is a practical, fast and accurate solution that can be combined with any receiver of the GeoMax GNSS portfolio.
