Redlands, California—June 22, 2009—ESRI users will now be able to view their ArcGIS Desktop projects on the DeLorme Earthmate PN-40 GPS receiver.
With the Earthmate PN-40 Extension for ESRI software from DeLorme, mobile professionals can convert collected waypoints and tracks with associated comments for import into ArcGIS Desktop as shapefiles. Users can also transfer views of their projects for use in the field, display MrSID and GeoTIFF imagery files, and navigate rural terrain across DeLorme trail and road data.
This latest DeLorme solution for mobile professionals includes DeLorme USA topographic map data and supports MrSID and GeoTIFF aerial imagery files for ESRI ArcGIS users. Raster catalog and scanned paper maps are also supported. In addition, users can subscribe to the online DeLorme Map Library to access aerial imagery, United States Geological Survey (USGS) 1:24,000 topographic quads, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) navigation charts.
The ruggedized, waterproof Earthmate PN-40 GPS is also capable of displaying color aerial imagery, integrated topographic and street maps, places of interest, and nautical charts. It is currently being used by a variety of outdoor professionals nationwide for collecting and verifying positional data in the fossil fuel, wind, and electrical energy markets and for search and rescue and public safety applications.
