Seamlessly Integrated with Survey123 and Esri Field Maps

We know that data collection projects can be daunting, especially with few resources and qualified teams. Spike is an affordable and easy-to-use smart laser measurement solution. It is seamlessly integrated with Esri’s ArcGIS® Survey123 and ArcGIS® Field Maps apps that you can use for many geospatial field applications. This solution is designed for novice to intermediate users, allowing you to train anybody to go into the field to capture GPS locations and measurements of objects.

Laser Measurement

When you use a tape measure, you need to stand at the object and extend it across the distance. With a laser measurement tool, you measure distances with a beam of light. Spike takes this concept a step further by pairing the tool with photos from your smart device. Spike can estimate an accurate reading of the objects you measure using your camera, GPS, and compass of your mobile device. Photo measurements by Spike are ± 1 percent accurate.

Spike Map

Compatible with Third-Party GNSS Receivers

Spike captures and stores the mobile device’s location and the target object’s location. The distance is offset along with a georeferenced image. Augment the accuracy of your location data by pairing Spike with leading third-party GNSS receivers. GNSS receivers tested and known to work with Spike are the Trimble R1, Bad Elf, Eos Arrow and Juniper Geode.
