New ikeOS introduces Google Earth functionality

Our new ikeOS 4.3.5 introduces automatic KML file creation - so now you get three data formats every time you capture a point with our ikeCapture software.

It's typically easy! As usual, aim your ikeGPS at the object you wish to capture the image & location of. Ensure the cross-hairs are correctly positioned and press "Capture". Instantly the image is captured, and the target location is computed. Then all the data is saved to:
1.) the EXIF header on the JPEG (with or without cross-hairs)
2.) the CSV table
3.) the KML file

ikeOS 4.3.5 also introduces a new format for the CSV table which makes direct importing data into ESRI ArcMap painless! The file headers have been updated to be completely compliant with ArcMap requirements, making the complete process of capturing, storing and uploading of remote positional data quite painless!

Lastly, ikeOS 4.3.5 has a more extensive self-diagnostic utility (called ikeDiagnostics) allowing the user can see complete performance measures across the ikeGPS instruments.

We're thrilled that Surveylab's ike1000 series has been nominated in the "Discovering Gold" category in this year's Wellington Regional Gold Awards.

As you can see from their website, "the Gold Awards seeks those businesses, both large and small that keep Wellington sparkling." Our new ikeGPS product line, innovative, integrated AND safe!, has certainly seen alot of interest since the launch last year. With class-leading instruments, ike1000 now provides a greater level of accuracy for remote data capture applications!

We're now looking forward to the awards night, 19th May!! See the full list of finalists here.

ikeGPS features in GPS World Webinar

Today GPS World presented a webinar entitled "Targeting Enterprise GIS: The Data-Capture Value Chain". Led by Rob Lorimer (contributing editor for Professional OEM) and ably assisted by Eric Gakstatter (contributing editor for Survey and Geospatial Solutions) the webinar covered a range of very relevant aspects of GPS-based data-capture for Enterprise GIS.

ikeGPS was specifically mentioned as a uniquely suitable device for data capture, combining GPS, camera, compass, inclinometer and rangefinder.

Very interactive, the webinar included four live surveys for the participants. Of particular interest for us here at Surveylab was the chart (shown above) listing the devices typically used in data capture. The results show that while GPS is the core device, more people are using complementary technologies in their data capture processes. Almost 15% of those surveyed now rely upon a solution that includes an inclinometer (such as ikeGPS). And with more than 60% saying a camera is part of their solution, I can see how geo-tagged images are fast becoming the standard.

Great webinar, Rob & Eric!

Surveylab supporting response to disaster in Samoa

The thoughts and prayers of staff at Surveylab are with those in Philippines, Vietnam, Samoa, and Indonesia struggling with the aftermath of hurricanes, earthquakes and the tsunami. Surveylab supplied two ikeGPS units and these have been deployed to Samoa with a multinational disaster assessment and coordination agency for use in the response to the disaster.

At Surveylab, we'll always help out by providing assistance where we can, and we welcome any inquiries from emergency and disaster response organisation for our services. ikeGPS has already seen action in other parts of the world as part of a rapid response to earthquakes, floods and hurricanes and we continue to work closely with those organisations providing immediate disaster management.
