Eos Positioning Systems to announce several new high-accuracy GNSS releases at the 2020 Esri User Conference
JULY 2020, MONTREAL, CANADA — Eos Positioning Systems (Eos), the manufacturer of the popular high-accuracy Arrow Series GNSS receivers for the GIS market, has announced today several new releases ahead of the 2020 virtual Esri User Conference.
These announcements include the expansion of the availability of the popular Eos Locate™ underground mapping solution, compatibility with the new ArcGIS Field Maps, the inaugural release of Eos Tools Pro for Windows, and a special surprise for virtual attendees of the 2020 Esri UC.
First: Expansion of Eos Locate™ underground mapping solution
Eos Locate™ is the world’s first high-accuracy, real-time underground mapping solution for Esri ArcGIS apps users. It allows organizations to accurately map already-buried assets straight to ArcGIS Online via either ArcGIS Collector or ArcGIS Field Maps.
Eos is pleased to announce the expansion of Eos Locate™compatibility with additional models from Vivax-Metrotech, Subsite and Radiodetection.

Second: Compatibility with ArcGIS Field Maps beta
ArcGIS Field Maps is the newest Esri mobile application, which combines the functionality of several existing Esri mobile applications, such as ArcGIS Collector, ArcGIS Explorer, and ArcGIS Tracker.
The ArcGIS Field Maps beta release (July 2020) is already fully compatible with Arrow GNSS receivers (all models). This means organizations with Arrow GNSS receivers can immediately start taking advantage of survey-grade Arrow GNSS locations and metadata within ArcGIS Field Maps for data collection, markups, read-only routine field work (e.g., utility locates), GPS tracking, and more.
In addition, two Eos solutions previously exclusive only to Collector also already work with ArcGIS Field Maps. These include:
- Eos Locate™for underground asset mapping
- Eos laser mapping (laser offsets) for collecting assets from afar

Third: Inaugural release of Eos Tools Pro for Windows
Eos Tools Pro is a free GNSS monitoring application for Arrow GNSS receivers. For the first time ever, this app is now available for Windows 10 users.
Eos Tools Pro allows fieldworkers to:
- Connect to an RTK network or base station via NTRIP
- Get elevations in orthometric heights via geoid model conversions in real time, in the field (directly into an Esri app)
- Apply a simple X, Y, Z datum shift to the current location to match any local datum
- Set a vast number of audible alarms
- And more
In addition, developers using Windows 10 will now be able to access the wide array of Arrow GNSS metadata while eliminating the task of parsing NMEA data.
Finally, Eos Tools Pro features a built-in duo of virtual Com Port and TCP/IP server to output streams of standard NMEA sentences. This enables multiple apps to have simultaneous access to the Arrow GNSS location and metadata.
