Vendor Focus: Map Gear

By on 16 May, 2022

In the lead up to the Locate conference and exhibition in Canberra this month, we’ll be highlighting some of the vendors you’ll be able to meet… their work, their products and their scheduled Locate presentations and/or activities.

This week, the Vendor Focus spotlight is on Map Gear.


Map Gear is an Australian-owned online store specialising in LiDAR and inertial navigation technologies, RTK GNSS survey and mapping hardware. We are the exclusive distributor of Emlid Reach RTK GNSS receivers in Australia, the flexibility, quality and affordability of which has made survey grade positioning accessible for a broad range of industries.

Prior to the conference, on Monday 23 May, Map Gear will have local surveyor Noel Burton from Detail Survey on hand to host the RTK & Drone Field Workshop. This free workshop will give hands-on experience with a range of equipment, software and survey workflows including drones, RTK, PPK, NTRIP and data post-processing.

The full-day event will include complimentary drinks and a BBQ lunch. Transport will be provided, departing the Canberra Convention Centre at 9:00am and 12:15pm and returning at 1:15pm and 4:30pm. The morning session will cover working with RTK in the field and office, while the afternoon session will cover drones, RTK and corrections propagation. Bookings are essential as spaces are limited.

Visit the Map Gear Locate22 workshop page for full workshop details and registration, and come and meet the Map Gear team at the Locate Expo, stand 1, inside the entrance on your left.
