(Heerbrugg, 8 June 2011) –
Leica Geosystems is pleased to announce the release of a new Zeno GIS family member – the Leica Zeno GG02 plus, a versatile cm accurate GNSS SmartAntenna combining dual-frequency GPS and optional GLONASS support. With the ever increasing demand for high-accuracy GIS, the new Leica Zeno GG02 plus and a Zeno field controller (Zeno 10/15 and CS10/15 GIS), deliver centimeter accuracy positioning even in difficult environments. In addition, Leica Zeno Connect and new versions of Zeno Field v2.0 and Zeno Office v2.0 are released.
With advanced GPS and GLONASS tracking technology, productivity is maintained in environments such as urban canyons and tree canopy with the ability to maintain lock on enough satellites when sky visibility becomes obstructed.
Delivering centimeter accuracy positions, the Leica Zeno GG02 plus SmartAntenna can be used to accurately map critical infrastructure, property information and other features including cadastral and public works data, (re-) locate oil pipelines, gas line and electric cables. The Leica Zeno GG02 plus SmartAntenna supports regional reference station networks or local base station to collect cm accurate positions in the field. If no reference station service is available, cm accuracy can also be achieved with post-processing the GNSS data in Zeno Office v2.0.
Most advanced GIS Mapping Rover
This new Zeno GIS Rover is built for high-accuracy data collection and integrates a range of beneficial features, including a dual-frequency GPS and GLONASS SmartAntenna with centimeter accuracy, either in real-time or after post-processing, fully rugged design (IP67, both in GNSS/GIS handheld and SmartAntenna) able to work in extreme temperatures with an exchangeable all day battery, 2 megapixel camera, in-built 3.5G modem, simplest GNSS and RTK configurations and the well known EasyIn/Out dataflow concept – all designed to meet the demanding requirements of the GIS data collection market. Zeno GIS, with the new GG02 plus offers real value to organizations investing in high-accuracy GIS data collection.
New Versions of Zeno Field v2.0 and Zeno Office v2.0
Additional improvements with the new release include the full support of the built-in camera with Zeno Field v2.0. Field workers can easily make photos in Zeno Field, with no extra devices, batteries, or file transfers being required. The camera can be accessed directly from Leica Zeno Field, and images are linked to GIS features and automatically transferred together with the feature from the field to the office using EasyIn. In addition, Leica Zeno v2.0 is now based on ArcPad 10.
Leica Zeno Connect
Leica Zeno Connect is an app for 3rd party software applications to manage and configure the Zeno GNSS sensors (GS05, GS06 and GG02 plus) and receive NMEA messages. In addition, a SDK is available to selected partners to integrate Zeno Connect into their applications. Zeno Connect allows Zeno customers and partners to quickly & easily leverage Leica Geosystems' mobile solutions products within their mobile applications.
The expanded Leica Zeno GIS product portfolio enables professionals to have confidence in decisions, analysis, and maps made using Leica Zeno GIS technology.
The Leica GG02 plus SmartAntenna, Leica Zeno Connect, and updates are immediately available. More information is available from authorized Leica Geosystems representatives.
