Surveylab’s Kuala Lumpur-based partner, DDSB (M) Sdn. Bhd. (DDSB), is a leading Malaysian IT company. DDSB was formed by experienced local professionals with consulting and multinational experiences, and has supplied ikeGPS solutions to utility and government customers for the past two years. Their display at this year’s Map Asia 2010 event will highlight the ability of ikeGPS to streamline GIS data capture, saving significant time and money. Lian Wah Seng, Chief Operating Officer, DDSB, remarked “ikeGPS is a simple and reliable tool for GIS data capture. Because of the integrated laser rangefinder, points of interest can be captured discreetly and safely from a distance meaning field staff don’t need to stand right on top of the asset.”
Map Asia is an international initiative aimed to allow the convergence, sharing and use of geospatial technologies. Surveylab and DDSB are pleased to be involved with Map Asia 2010. Contact DDSB for your own personal demonstration of ikeGPS technology at firstname.lastname@example.org.

About remote standoff
Surveylab has wrapped into one compact handheld a laser rangefinder with a powerful GPS receiver, 3D compass and 5MP digital camera. To this we add a PDA running Windows® Mobile 6. This creates our highly versatile, multi-functional ikeGPS capture tool with one very unique, defining feature – users can standoff and capture inaccessible positional data, take multiple geotagged photographs, and attribute information without having to get right 'on the spot'. Remote standoff makes data capture a lot easier and safer. Invest wisely. If you'd like to learn what remote standoff means to you and how it puts money back in your pocket, whistle up an online presentation with Terry Ross, VP International Sales. info@ikeGPS.com
Plant City, Florida Case Study
Florida's Plant City has contributed a case study on using ikeGPS to capture data and prepare an inventory of engineering assets including stormwater outlets, roadway culverts and sewers. Zlatko (Zack) Knezevic, GIS Coordinator for the Engineering Division says in the study, "Not only does the ikeGPS help us capture more data in a shorter timeframe, but it's much safer for our team. With the unique rangefinder inspectors can capture asset data without standing on busy streets, wading in stormwater drainage ditches, or climbing steep banks." Zack is now trialing ikeGPS for inventories and re-establishment records for streetlights, signposts, traffic signals and intersection signage. For a copy of the case study, please contact Terry Ross, VP International Sales. terry.ross@ikeGPS.com.
Philip Owusu, Customer Service Coordinator, Surveylab USA
Philip joined the Surveylab in Washington DC in August 2008. He has a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Minor in Business Administration. He has developed wide-ranging product and GIS experience providing sales and technical support.
He recently conducted a comparative data capture field trial for a water & sewer authority. ikeGPS performed much better than competing GPS capture devices and earned the big tick for picking up more satellites, obtaining the GPS fix faster, and not losing a fix at any time throughout the trial.
