Communications infrastructure companies select ikeGPS because it is the only handheld mobile GIS device that can measure utility pole data with an all-in-one integrated GPS, high resolution camera, laser range finder and onboard software for GIS mapping, geo-tagging and photogrammetry for measuring heights and distances. Traditionally, pole audits are conducted by taking manual measurements with a measuring pole and recording the data in field notes for later transcription to maps and databases. Field crew size and office staff labor account for a significant cost burden for each survey. ikeGPS is an ideal solution for utility pole audits because it enables the accurate measurement of attachments, heights and distances of a pole from an image that can be captured from a distance using a single handheld device, reducing crew size and data processing time while enhancing crew safety.
By replacing traditional pole audit methods with ikeGPS, pole audit measurement time can be reduced by up to 80%, while field and GIS mapping errors are virtually eliminated. The GIS data collection process now requires only one person, cutting field crew sizes by at least 50%. With ikeGPS, crews can quickly and safely obtain accurate pole location, physical dimensions, attachment specifications and a high resolution photo from a single handheld device. ikeGPS is easy to use, with a minimum amount of crew training required.
Since 2003 ikeGPS has become a global leader in mobile GIS data collection systems -- the first GPS-laser device to integrate a digital camera with verifiable, standoff position capture. ikeGPS technology is used by defense forces, energy companies, city councils, police, federal authorities, and utility companies around the world.
