How to Setup Esri's New Collector to Capture Orthometric Heights

How to Setup Esri's New Collector to Capture Orthometric Heights

This how-to workflow is designed for the New Collector from Esri, formerly known as the Aurora project.  This will only capture live Orthometric heights with an Eos Arrow receiver running the Geoid12B in the Eos Tools Pro app.  Doing that will allow Collector points to capture real-time NAVD88 elevations.

The Value of Mobile GIS and the Power of Cloud Computing in Natural Resource Management

The Value of Mobile GIS and the Power of Cloud Computing in Natural Resource Management

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.

Criterion RD 1000 Basal Area Factor-Scope and Dendrometer Explained

Criterion RD 1000 Basal Area Factor-Scope and Dendrometer Explained

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.

CSU Monterey Bay Tackles High-Accuracy RTK and Elevations with Collector

CSU Monterey Bay Tackles High-Accuracy RTK and Elevations with Collector

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).
