April 14, 2008 - PRLog -- BFS Corporation to use Magellan GPS - GIS  Mapping Solutions for the Oil-drilling Industry
.         
UK-based BFS Corporation it's going to develop a custom made solution combining GPS and GIS technology side by side with Magellan Systems.

(London)   -  With the strength of Windows SQL Server and Windows Mobile 6, BFS Corporation and Magellan GPS systems are going to develop a multi-tier, state of the art guidance solution fully focused for the oil drilling industry.

The mentioned partnership at hand brings solutions from the lab rooms right out to the country, wirelessly and handy. Precise data available when required by the people that need it the most.

Magellan introduced the latest addition to its MobileMapper GIS and mapping line of products--the MobileMapper 6. A rugged, waterproof, handheld GPS/GIS receiver, the MobileMapper 6 fulfills the requirements for low-cost, professional GIS field data collection. It fills a market gap in the data collection field between high-cost devices and consumer-grade products. It is expected to particularly appeal to forestry and other natural resource organizations, oil and gas, agriculture, utilities, government agencies, and businesses large and small that need a highly-rugged, robust GIS unit that can collect geographic data with 2-5 meter accuracy in real-time with SBAS corrections.

The MobileMapper 6 is a Windows Mobile 6 open platform, unlike competing consumer-type units, it offers full compatibility with popular GIS software to enable companies to select and use the GIS software of choice. In addition, unlike PDA devices, the MobileMapper 6 is highly rugged for rough-and-tumble business applications. The MobileMapper 6 offers the professional features associated with more costly high-end GIS/GPS units, yet it is price-competitive with consumer-grade GPS.

"The MobileMapper 6 is an economically, professional-grade GPS/GIS handheld receiver rugged-built for business applications," said Francois Erceau, general manager of Magellan Professional. "With its low-cost, lightweight rugged design, and the ability to run virtually all GIS software, we expect it to become a favorite of businesses both large and small."

It comes standard with an integrated 2-megapixel camera that can take photos, which can be tagged with the GPS location and used as a point description data in any GIS application, such as Magellan's Mobile Mapping software, ESRI's ArcPad or other third-party software. It also includes a built-in microphone to record and replay voice notes to enrich the collected data.

"This partnership will allow our customers in the production divisons to increase efficiency and planning deep down to the temperature, the kind of surfaces at play and other key factors, as warnings or user-variables. Having this kind of information out in the field, on a handheld device, allows decision makers to concur on real factors other than technical assumptions." - says Gus Madison, VP Marketing.
