This heroic Allegro™ was caught in a combine fire, and was forever after fondly referred to as “the chicken-fried Allegro” by those at Juniper Systems. Amazingly, the data was recovered in full from the handheld.

Arsenic is a carcinogen, increasing cancer rates for those who ingest it. Found at high levels in the groundwater in a number of countries, a group of seven Utah State University engineering students left for the Puno region of Peru, just north of Lake Titicaca, to work toward eliminating the problem. After data collection training from members of the Juniper Systems team and extensive arsenic removal research prior to the trip, students worked to identify arsenic levels through sample mapping and removal exploration. In addition to focusing on unsafe levels, the students also followed up on the success of previous projects and future project ideas to discover other ways of improving the living conditions of these Peruvian communities. And they did it all with the Archer 2 as an epic companion—R2-D2 style.

DSC04173-Taking Readings

With more than 1.9 million tons of bombs and ammunitions dropped over Germany alone during World War II, thousands of ordnance still remain buried and undetonated beneath the earth’s surface. These UXOs live up to several meters deep, unstable and ready to blow at the first available opportunity. In the case of undetonated air drop bombs, the fuses are extremely unstable due to corrosion and aging. This creates a serious issue with construction and excavation projects, among other applications. Vibration from large equipment and digging operations have the potential to set off these UXO buried in the ground below, triggering the long-dormant objects to detonate.

 “Unrivaled tolerance to a vast range of environmental extremes, the adaptive sensory processing capabilities of the Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet extend from its auxiliary Geode companion to orbital satellites in the furthest reaches of Earth’s biosphere.”

Earlier this year, I resumed my duties as a groundskeeper around the office of a small ecological consulting company in Pennsylvania. Having received my Bachelor of Arts in geography from West Chester University of Pennsylvania, a few decimal degrees of GIS still lingered in my head, so when I was called into the office mid-January to help operate a Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet demo model, I was happy to comply. It seemed like a curious portable device that could definitely take a punch and continue to run without skipping a beat, and I was discovering new and exciting features on a day-to-day basis. Using the property grounds and the surrounding forest, which I had become familiar with in the previous years of work I had done outside, I began to establish a series of waypoint markers to mimic the Flagging Tape used in actual field work data analysis; I then tested different methods of data collection and cross-referencing in order to establish the most efficient and practical means to carry out potential field work applications in the future. I was intrigued by the node-locked copy of Global Mapper™ v18.0, which my boss had purchased from Blue Marble Geographics – Global Mapper was a GIS software company staple, but completely foreign to me (I had settled into Esri’s ArcGIS™ software during my college years). With my experience in GIS and the novelty of a portable touchscreen device capable of running Global Mapper on Windows 10 OS, the Mesa 2 tablet became the perfect catalyst to boost my familiarity with the software. My comfort in performing GIS analysis through the Juniper Systems interface grew exponentially compared to that of my experiences using ArcMap on a desktop computer, and it wasn’t long before I was certain that the Mesa 2 would become an exceptional company asset. Specifically, it seemed that it would be invaluable in determining the relative accuracy of spatial datasets provided by external sources, in real-time, to account for the margin of error and establish new parameters that would better represent our firsthand data observations.

You may remember a blog post we wrote a while back about an American expedition team that ventured to the peak of Myanmar’s never-before-climbed Mount Gamlang Razi, in an effort to record its elevation and (hopefully) establish it as the new highest peak in Southeast Asia. Continue Reading…

Allegro MXWe received an email the other day from one of our customers who works in collaboration with the Agricultural Research Organization at the Volcani Center in Israel. They recently began using an older Allegro model, the Allegro CE, for their data collection. We just had to share what they wrote because it’s things like this that make us love what we do every day.
