gis-studio Hardware

Dear UvA student or UvA staff member,

Before you can use the hardware that the GIS Studio provides, first ask permission for using this hardware, by sending an e-mail to: Thijs de Boer, e-mail address: w.m.deboer at uva dot nl. If he agrees, you will become a reply with a date proposal to come and pick up the hardware and to agree on the date of delivery and return.

 

1: Trimble Yuma7 rugged fieldwork tablets

Mobile GIS is the expansion of a geographic information system (GIS) from the office into the field. It comprises the integration of four technologies: GIS, lightweight hardware, the global positioning system (GPS), and wireless communication. The use of Mobile GIS from within the GIS Studio is focused on the first three technologies with which we use the GPS extension on ArcGIS 10 software for database access, mapping, GIS, and GPS integration on a mobile device – the Trimble Yuma7 Rugged Tablet PC (hereafter called Yuma7) – which combines a GPS receiver with a field computer that is running the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system (see fig). The GIS Studio has 5 Yuma7 devices that can be borrowed.

2: DJI Phantom 3 Advanced drone (quadcopter)

The GIS Studio owns one DJI Phantom 3 Advanced quadcopter UAV or drone. You can use it as a flying tripod that enables you to put our camera anywhere. Although this is a somewhat older type, the camera is of very good quality.

3: senseFly eBeeX drone (fixed-wing)

The GIS Studio owns one senseFly eBeeX fixed-wing drone. This drone is especially ment for mapping large areas. We have a normal RGB (S.O.D.A.) camera for it and a special 3D-camera (S.O.D.A. 3-D).

4: Topcon  Hiper HR dGPS base station and rover

The GIS Studio owns a dGPS that can be borrowed only by staff members of IBED.

A satellite positioning and navigation system with global coverage may be termed a global navigation satellite system (GNSS).
As of September 2020, the United States' Global Positioning System (GPS), Russia's Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS), China's BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) and the European Union's Galileo are fully operational GNSSs.
Japan's Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) is a (US) GPS satellite-based augmentation system to enhance the accuracy of GPS, with satellite navigation independent of GPS scheduled for 2023. The Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) plans to expand to a global version in the long term.
Global coverage for each system is generally achieved by a satellite constellation of 18–30 medium Earth orbit (MEO) satellites spread between several orbital planes. GNSS consist of a space segment (satellite), a control segment (ground station) and the user segment GNSS receivers.
The Trimble Hiper HR station enhances the signal provided by the GNSS space segment and allows positioning with centimetre accuracy which can be used to produce high-resolution elevations models of a field work site or the very precise location of e.g. sample point. We operate the Topcon Hiper HR GNNS system which has a multiple-constellation (GPS + GLONASS + etc.) capability and an excellent under-canopy performance for use in e.g. densely forested areas.

5: Propeller Aeropoints (set of 10 Ground Control Points)

The GIS Studio owns a set of 10 Aeropoints which can be borrowed only by staff members of IBED.

Propeller AeroPoints are a Ground Control Solution Specifically for Drone Surveying.
AeroPoints deliver high-precision ground control points (GCP's). Just lay out your AeroPoints and let them do all the work.
Forget complex surveying equipment and prevent human error with these rugged, lightweight ground control points.
One-button operation means you don’t need to be a GPS expert to use them. Just lay them out, and they’ll do their job.
Each AeroPoint is a portable, reusable ground control point that repeatedly records positioning data while your drone flies.
Use with any GPS-enabled drone, any coordinate reference system, and any processing software.
45 minutes to Accuracy: AeroPoints’ in-built GPS only needs 45 minutes of activation, well within typical drone operation time.

6: Geoslam Zeb-Revo RT hand-held laser scanner

The GIS Studio owns a hand-held laser scanner Zeb-Revo which can be borrowed only by staff members of IBED.

With the hand-held laser scanner Geoslam Zeb-Revo you can perform Real-time processing which means you can visualise the scan as you move. This scanner has a range of 30m and IP51 rating. Used mostly for scanning indoors but can also be used outdoors (under dry conditions) and utilised for applications such as scanning trees and shrubs and small landscape features.
