ikeGPS Releases ikeTools

June 1, 2012  - By

ikeGPS announced it has released its new toolbox, ikeTools, for rapidly capturing GIS location data and making measurements of complex objects from a remote location. Now you have the ability, right from your ikeGPS screen, to complete the most demanding field data capture jobs far more quickly and efficiently than ever before.

ikeTools Data Capture Modes:

Target Position: The work horse of ikeGPS mobile GIS data capture. Point ikeGPS at a remote object such as a tree, pole or building and capture its GPS location using the onboard GPS, laser range finder and compass. One shot and you’re on to the next object.

Three Shot Height: Directly measure the height of an object, such as a pole, from a remote position, even when the base of the object is obscured.

Missing Line: Calculate the horizontal distance between any two objects.

Span Height: Calculate the vertical height above ground of a point on a span, for example the mid-span height of a cable or wire.

Photo Only: Capture a high resolution photo of an object. Useful for documenting the conditions of located or measured objects, for identifying hazards for field crews and for including in assessments.

True Size Poles: Capture a calibrated (TrueSize) photo of an utility or telecommunications pole with one shot, then transfer to a PC application for measuring the heights of the pole and its attachments.

True Size PLS: Capture calibrated photos that are used on a PC to measure the heights of objects on electric utility poles. Exports directly to software products from Power Lines Systems, Inc.

True Size UVM: A variety of measurements for utility vegetation management. Conduct Tree Assessments by measuring tree height, crown width, and trunk diameter at breast height (DBH).
