Utilizing Rugged Tablets for Environmental Land Management

Benefits-of-Rugged-GNSS-Tablets-for-Stakeless-Construction-ProjectsDT Research GNSS Rugged Tablets can be utilized by county and federal offices to survey, map, and record land areas for environmental protection, from wetlands to mountain ranges. These simplified, accurate survey processes can be performed with handheld tablets or in conjunction with tablet controlled drones, which can map accurately to centimeters over broad swathes of terrain and transmit overlapping images for a precise picture of even remote and hard to access regions.

High-accuracy geospatial measurements can provide environmental agencies with the data they need to ensure appropriate protection and management strategies. Arms of state agencies that need to confirm property lines and lay out right of way maps can coordinate their information to avoid damage to natural resources and protected habitats.

Built in, dual frequency GNSS modules can provide stand-alone sub-meter accuracy to centimeter-level accuracy for teams, and solo personnel can operate the tablet technology to access Real Time Kinematics from GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO satellites. Compatibility with existing survey and GIS software allows users to rely on familiar applications in conjunction with advanced measurement tech for marsh and mountain surveying.

A Department of Forestry can utilize GNSS enabled rugged tablets to determine the likely advance of forest fires and help accurately plan cutting and pre-burn actions to limit the potential danger and damage of an out of control wildfire. With drone support, firefighters on the ground battling an existing blaze can be directed more effectively, providing additional safety.

Likewise, flooding and dam break prevention can be set into motion using the accurate topographical maps generated by enhanced technology. This can aid in times of local weather events, to guide evacuation or allow proactive steps to be taken to divert fire, flood, and mudslides or avalanches.

Land management offices can leverage the accurate, confirmable data collected via GNSS tablet mapping to develop, maintain, and distribute the State’s right-of-way information, making maps easily accessible and updates disseminated across all existing files in real time.

Forest, mountain, and wetland censuses can be readily accomplished and transmitted to the appropriate authorities and educational institutions, generating the data required to fund grants and government projects for land conservation and management as well as identifying specific habitats and biological environments for endangered species. Fish and Game departments can distribute licensing to control problematic populations and help establish appropriate boundaries with ample food and watering sources.

DT Research GNSS tablets can be used across all harsh environments, and are ideal for almost any branch dealing with land management, conservation, or disposal.
