Topcon TopPAD 7.0.1 software

  • Rating12345

A new Mobile GIS field software program — TopPAD 7.0.1 – from Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) allows users to take GIS layers into the field for verification and update. When installed on Topcon’s hand-held GMS-2 or a Topcon field controller, TopPAD can collect and update position and attribute information using customized forms.

Barbara McInerney, Topcon’s GIS product marketing manager, said, “The program is based on ESRI’s ArcPad with a special added functionality for Topcon GPS hardware. The software was designed for use by experienced GIS professionals familiar with ESRI and ArcPad products and who wish to take advantage of the benefits of Topcon GPS hardware.”
 
New features available with TopPAD 7.0.1 include :

— Support for Topcon receivers (GMS-2 internal and external receivers) from within ArcPad version 7.0 or higher using Topcon protocol;
— High accuracy position solution using RTK survey configurations;
— Additional information about GPS and GLONASS satellites such as PDOP, Position Type, SNR graph, and graphical skyplots;
— Image capture using internal GMS-2 camera in bmp or jpeg format for line and polygon features;
— Use internal compass to store azimuth values with images.
