Topcon’s new GMS-2 Pro for GIS field mapping features an integrated distance meter, an image height/width measurement and offset measurement. It also has a high level of mobility in the GMS-2 format. The digital camera offers two mega pixels of sharp images, the integrated compass offers +/- 4 ° accuracy and the distance meter has a range of 50 m with an accuracy of +/- 10 mm.

A spokesman for Topcon said, “What really makes the GMS-2 Pro stand out however is its groundbreaking, easy height and width measurement. Just one shoot and two taps and you get a target’s height or width. To measure the height or width of the target, you simply aim at the target by using the easy to read image screen. Then you can measure the distance and capture the image at the same time. This is realised by combining distance measurement with innovative image capturing technology.”
