Customizable software and rugged hardware for Wildlife Biologists

Wildlife Biologists can find themselves in diverse environments when collecting data and mapping areas of interest. Having easy-to-use mapping software and equipment designed to endure extreme weather conditions makes these jobs easier, faster, and cheaper while ensuring accuracy. Juniper Systems offers Uinta™ Mapping Software, the Cedar™ CT8X2 Rugged Tablet, and the Geode™ GNSS Receiver as a complete solution for Wildlife Biologists.

Uinta Mapping Software

In the natural resource industry, there are several points for data entry from animals to vegetation. Having easy-to-use software for mapping is essential for any professional in the field. Uinta was designed with this type of user in mind. The simple interface makes it easy for any user to be ready to collect data in a matter of minutes.

Project Manager, Sara Bryant from Beacon Energy shared, “The user interface is intuitive and easy to use. The customizable software makes reporting so easy and clean!”

With customizable software, users and teams can create forms to collect the information that matters most. Users can create a unique form for the project at hand and gather exact locations for improved mapping. Forms can be recreated for greater ease and consistency on the job. The efficiency of electronic data entry forms, shareable files, professional mapping, and live support make Uinta the premier choice for mapping professionals in the natural resource industry.

Cedar CT8X2 Rugged Tablet

A rugged tablet is needed whether a user is checking for wildlife in areas for a potential construction site or working for an environmental firm collecting information on plants. Users are often in various weather conditions, from rain to a blaring sun. A rugged tablet with resistance to water and dust can be exceptionally helpful for keeping data safe and the device running. A sunlight-readable display lessens eye strain and the inevitable glare that comes from the sun beating down on users in rugged weather.

The CT8X2 is designed for all-day use in any environment with a long-lasting battery, a sleek and rugged design, and GNSS capabilities. To prevent a productive workday from coming to a halt, users can rely on the 8-hour battery of the CT8X2 to keep going. The rugged design for the CT8X2 comes with an IP67 rating for water and dust resistance, the ability to operate in temperatures ranging from -4 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit (-20 C to 60 C), and can withstand multiple 1-meter drops to concrete without skipping a beat. Users who need to map can utilize the 2–4-meter GPS positioning to get accurate information that can save time and resources for future projects.

Geode GNSS Receiver

For users looking for increased accuracy in the field, the Geode GNSS Receiver is recommended. With affordable price points, the Geode offers sub-meter, sub-foot, and decimeter options for users mapping smaller habitats such as insects, reptiles, and birds. The Geode provides users with an all-day battery for extended hours, a one-button design for easy usage, and is built to withstand harsh environments.
