Esri customers in the United States can now purchase Septentrio’s Altus NR2 high-accuracy GNSS receiver, according to an announcement today from the two partner companies. The open-architecture Altus NR2 is fully compatible with Esri’s new version of Collector for ArcGIS, giving Esri users a powerful combination for GIS data gathering in applications requiring centimeter-level positioning. The intuitive web interface built into the NR2 allows for easy receiver configuration for Collector for ArcGIS using a standard web browser so that no additional device is needed to configure the receiver. “This new reseller agreement builds on our longstanding strategic alliance with Septentrio to develop high-accuracy GNSS/GIS solutions optimized for easy integration with our ArcGIS Online platform,” said Jeff Shaner, product manager. “The Altus NR2 GNSS receiver, coupled with Collector for ArcGIS, provides a seamless solution for high-accuracy, offline field data collection using the ArcGIS platform.” www.septentrio.com.
