SAIC has announced GeoRover Mobile, a program enabling the collection of geographic information system data in the field with or without network connectivity, in addition to traditional capabilities.

GeoRover Mobile can be used to collect and edit field data for use by environmental, utility, law enforcement, education, land management, forestry, and government and defense applications.

The program resides on mobile devices that operate on the Android platform and integrates GPS and Wi-Fi networks to provide current location data and other information.

“We are pleased to provide customers with mobile GIS solutions for the Android platform, delivering the ability to visualize map content while collecting data even in the most remote locations,” said John Thomas, SAIC senior vice president and general manager of the intelligence systems. “This new technology demonstrates SAIC’s ability to offer cutting edge mobile solutions helping solve difficult problems.”
