In 2015, Esri and Hexagon jointly announced a series of ready-to-use imagery services to Esri users through ArcGIS Marketplace. ArcGIS Marketplace delivers high-resolution aerial multispectral and basemap imagery services as a subscription through ArcGIS Online. In light of the collaboration, Esri will be participating in HxGN Live June 14-16 in Anaheim, California.

Another collaboration with Leica Geosystems, a brand within Hexagon Geosystems, addressed the market for high-accuracy mobile field collection, which was released this year. It integrates Esri’s Collector for ArcGIS, a configurable mobile app for collecting and editing data in the field, with the high-accuracy Leica Zeno 20 from Leica Geosystems.

“We’re excited to raise mobile data collection solutions to the next level of precision and interoperability through rigorous connectivity between our survey-grade Leica Zeno series and Esri’s GIS solutions,” says Hexagon Geosystems president Juergen Dold. “This industry collaboration between Leica Geosystems and Esri is another joint commitment to make it easier for professionals around the world to capture, manage, and share their data, regardless if they’re in the office or the field, without sacrificing precision or interoperability.”

The new solution, ZenoCollector, is an Android-based, professional-grade handheld. ZenoCollector connects to ArcGIS Online, automatically synching high-precision field changes to enterprise information and giving everyone access to the latest data gathered on the project sites, as well as access to high-resolution basemap services and Hexagon imagery services through ArcGIS Marketplace. This innovation of online content connected to mobile field tools and back-office systems now provides rapid synchronization to streamline field job planning, collection, and postprocessing of data.
