TerraGo and Eos Positioning Partnership Delivering Next-Generation GPS / GNSS Solutions for Customers Today

Using TerraGo Edge on iOS and Android paired with Eos Positioning Systems’ high-accuracy GNSS receivers, customers are improving performance, cutting costs and getting survey-grade accuracy results



Washington, D.C. – January 21, 2016 – TerraGo, a pioneer of geospatial collaboration and enterprise mobility software, announces a technology partnership with Eos Positioning Systems that is driving collaboration across company product lines and already producing field-tested, customer-proven results. The combination of the TerraGo Edge mobile GPS data collection platform with the Eos Arrow line of sub-meter and centimeter accuracy receivers, delivers a modern, cloud-based, real-time data collection capability that can’t be matched by traditional, proprietary GPS handhelds.

Terrago-eosThe proven results are in for water utilities, energy, engineering and customers doing all types of field data collection and survey work across numerous industries. While the working environments and the projects are very different, these customers are all using TerraGo Edge and Eos Arrow receivers on the job today to replace traditional GPS handhelds to achieve massive cost-savings and vastly improved productivity.

Enmapp, a pipeline inspection company based in Canada, was able to cut hardware costs by 85% while capturing sub-meter data in real-time, eliminating all the costs of post-processing handheld data. Summit Engineering, a Colorado-based engineering and land surveying firm, was able to reduce hardware costs by over 50% and improve productivity by more than 30% while surveying power lines in Minnesota for one of the country’s largest energy companies. Similar performance improvements and cost reductions are reported by joint customers in water utilities, forestry, engineering, agriculture and environmental operations.



“When we talk about Eos Arrow, we’re not simply pairing their receivers via Bluetooth, there are millions of apps that do that without any meaningful integration,” said Dave Basil, VP of Products and Services at TerraGo. “We interoperate with their receivers at the software level to ensure our customers get the full real-time GPS data set so they can monitor, alert and capture data that meets the highest accuracy and quality standards. For customers, it’s as simple as Bluetooth pairing, but we’ve done the work to turn their phone or tablet into a survey-grade receiver.”
According to Jean-Yves Lauture, Chief Technology Officer of Eos Positioning Systems, “TerraGo and Eos Positioning are strategic technology partners. This means that our collaboration goes beyond simple marketing and includes sharing core technology for the benefit of our customers. For example, we have been able to share Eos software components, which TerraGo has built into the Edge app. This integration provides the full fidelity monitor and lossless capture of NMEA data from the Eos receivers, including the Arrow 200.”

Press Release – Eos Positioning Systems Announces RTK NTRIP app for Android

Eos Positioning Systems Announces RTK NTRIP app for Android


Eos Positioning Systems introduced a comprehensive RTK NTRIP app for Android that works with its Arrow line of RTK GNSS receivers. An Arrow GNSS receiver combined with the NTRIP app turns your Android smartphone or tablet into a powerful data collector capable of recording 1cm accurate GIS data in real-time.



“We designed Eos Tools Pro for the RTK user,” said Chief Technology Officer Jean-Yves Lauture. ”It is, by far, the most comprehensive NTRIP app for Android on the market today, turning smartphones and inexpensive Android tablets into powerful high-precision GNSS data collection devices.“


The app, named Eos Tools Pro, has user-configurable audible and visual alarms to alert the user of high PDOP, lost RTK correction, unacceptable correction age and several other important metrics. It supports all current and future constellations (GPS, Glonass, Galileo and Beidou).

To eliminate any confusion as to which GPS/GNSS device the user’s app is using, Eos Tools Pro features a drop-down menu so the user may select any receiver the Android device has been paired with.



“The Eos Tools Pro app enables Android devices running Esri’s Collector app on Android smartphones and tablets to collect data as accurate as 1cm when connected to an Arrow GNSS receiver, “ said Esri Product Manager Jeff Shaner. “It’s a big leap forward to enable Collector to serve the high-precision GNSS user.”


Google Maps is tightly integrated with the app to display the user’s location anywhere in the world. Detailed satellite information such as a skyplot that plots each visible satellite, whether it’s being used or not, and signal strength bar graphs from each constellation are also displayed. Finally, a Terminal screen displays the NMEA data flowing and allows the user to send commands to the receiver.

Eos Tools Pro and Arrow receivers are targeted at high-accuracy applications like GIS, environmental, agriculture, electric/gas/water utilities, surveying, machine control, and federal/state/local government.
