Using Mobile GIS equipment and workflows with cloud computing can streamline data collection and management for field staff and allow managers to make more timely and informed land management and conservation decisions. These workflows also greatly increase the efficiency of reporting. Not only can these solutions save man-hours and money, but also reduce potential human errors introduced by recording field data on paper and then having to manually enter that data into a computer database.

Tutorial video on the Criterion RD 1000 as explained by our former President Jon Aschenbach.
Laser Technology’s Criterion RD 1000 is the first electronic BAF-scope and dendrometer that is capable of visually determining if trees fall in or out of a given plot as related to a specified Basal Area Factor (BAF). It also internally computes the limiting distance for questionable, borderline trees and determines if they are in or out of the plot. It measures the diameter of a tree at any given height and provides the ability to determine the height at which a specific diameter occurs. This video demonstrates how to timber cruise and determine if trees are in or out of a sample plot and how to measure a diameter of a tree.

To capture horizontal (horizontal datum NAD83) and elevational data (vertical datum NAVD88), the university needed to determine first the required accuracy and if there was an affordable technology solution that could accomplish the task. By working with the GNSS experts at Anatum Field Solutions and their review of Bluetooth GNSS options, the EOS Arrow 200 RTK-GNSS using Esri’s Collector app, paired with an existing campus base station transmitting centimeter-level RTK corrections via the Internet, met all requirements for horizontal accuracy.
However, they needed to capture the vertical datum in NAVD88. This explains the differences between Height Above Ellipsoid captured by Mobile GIS apps and how to convert that elevation data to MSL (NAVD88).

While we still recommend holding external antennas with either the GPS Hat, GPS Vest or a range pole for the best results with submeter GPS/GNSS receivers, we recognize that the GPS Hat isn’t the most stylish article of clothing in your closet. This video shows how to DIY your own clip attachment for the external antenna used by the Arrow and SXBlue receiver product lines.

The Galileo system will have all brand new cutting-edge satellites technologically comparable to the U.S. GPS satellites and expectedly more reliable than the Russian Glonass satellites. But the best part is that the Galileo satellites will be able to add more available satellites to receivers capable of tracking more than two constellations simultaneously.

RTK GPS receivers are traditionally very expensive and their accuracy has been thought of as beyond the field mapping needs of most environmental and engineering firms, and government land management groups. However, with the introduction of Bluetooth RTK receivers for use with field tablets and mobile GIS, RTK’s potential has become less expensive to achieve and much desired. Add to that the availability of Bluetooth RTK receiver rentals from Anatum Field Solutions, and the continued progression of many companies into mobile GIS workflows with tablets becomes much easier and more affordable.
