Calgary, Alberta Canada has broad customer base of GIS GPS Mapping field users, we have assisted cities and municipalities with the selection of GIS data collection software (such as ESRI collector) and other mapping programs for building accurate 3-dimensional maps, we have sold many Mapping GNSS tools to utilities companies for right of way/easement monitoring and to federal departments for land management. We offer free technical support with every purchase, and offers a up and running Guarantee – “We will have you up and running within five minutes or less”, when you call in with a technical question.

GPS / GNSS Mapping equipment or precise GIS data collection devices are important tools in a variety of industries. GIS mapping devices are less expensive and easier to use than RTK land survey equipment. They are the favourite tools of municipalities and utility companies, (gas, cable, pipeline, electric, phone etc..) because they allow you to build a cm accurate map of your assets in a fraction of the time that traditional survey tools like total stations or RTK GNSS would. GIS, or Geographic Information System, refers to the collection and analysis of this data, and is facilitated by GPS mapping tools, and dedicated mapping software. This approach is favored by organizations with many distributed assets to manage and track. Locating assets accurately gives work crews an advantage when troubleshooting issues and when verifying the status of rights of way and pipeline routes.

Bench-Mark sells and supports the Juniper Systems Geode GPS receiver. The Geode GPS is designed for integration into your existing mapping infrastructure and is capable of cm level accuracy. Designed and Manufactured in the USA, the Geode is a hand held lightweight multi-function GNSS (GPS+ GLONASS) receiver. The Geode is an expandable system that works in conjunction with your existing Android Windows 10 or Windows CE device to provide unparalleled precision. Equipped with a wide internal Bluetooth Connectivity and a battery life of up to 10 hours, the Juniper Systems Geode will improve the efficiency and productivity of any organization looking to improve the positioning quality of their mapping GNSS information.

The most innovative feature of the Geode is the method of operation. Rather than being a stand-alone unit, like some other GIS products, it is designed to integrate with an existing Windows or Android device using the multi-platform Geode Connect app. This ability to bring your own device and continually updating your GIS collection data without effecting your high precision GNSS receiver is a competitive advantage for customers in the field over their competitors.  The Geode will in many cases work with the equipment that is already issued to your field crews, becoming another tool in their tool belt. The Geode has Bluetooth, USB and RS-232 serial connection.

What is GIS?

GIS stands for Geographic Information System. GIS combines mapping with in-depth information and accurate location of assets and services. GIS tools allow companies to pin-point important locations and analyze collected data.

What are important features for GIS GPS mapping equipment?

GIS GPS mapping equipment should be affordable, easy to use and rugged. These attributes allow you to field as many devices as possible, increasing the precision and reach of your GIS effort.

Where can I buy GIS GPS mapping equipment in Canada?

Bench-Mark equipment sells the Juniper Systems Geode GNSS system. This is suitable for all GIS applications.

GIS GPS Mapping equipment frequently endures the harshest field environments, and the Geode is engineered to take the abuse, designed to stand up to a Canadian winter. The SLC multi-function GNSS receiver is rated at IP-68, it will survive a half meter drop into water indefinitely and can withstand unlimited contact with dust. It will continue to operate in temperatures from -20 C to 65 C.

GNSS Mapping receivers can add efficiency to your business. Using the Juniper Systems Geode, your crews can respond to an incident with a very accurate (cm level) mapping capabilities.  When they notice an inconsistency in your existing GIS data, they can correct the database with the Geode’s Decimeter precision. Backed up by Bench-Marks technical service guarantee, the Juniper Systems Geode multi-function GNSS receiver is the smart decision for your GIS mapping requirements.
