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.

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…

Electronic Data Solutions (EDS) is holding an upcoming webinar on April 23rd at 11AM–12PM CDT on how to use its Everglade data collection software to quickly and accurately prepare, collect, and produce wetland determination reports. Continue Reading…

Ken testing Archer 2's GNSS accuracy Ken Lucas, an engineer technician with the Nevada Division of Water Resources, recently tested the Archer 2™’s GNSS accuracy—with both GPS & GLONASS receivers enabled—when used with OnPOZ EZTag CE™ mobile software from Juniper partner, Effigis. Typically, the Archer 2 experiences 2-5 meter GNSS accuracy, but when used with OnPoZ EZSurv® Post-Processing Software, accuracy is improved to sub-meter (meaning that the results should have a margin of error of less than one meter).
