Ricoh Introduces SE-3 GPS/Compass Module for 500SE GPS Camera

Ricoh 500SE GPS Camera

The Ricoh 500SE GPS camera can now be fitted with the SE-3 GPS/Compass module to provide both position and direction (azimuth) information on the camera’s LCD screen.

The module also embeds this location data into images as they are captured for use by mapping applications such as GoogleEarth or ESRI’s ArcGIS to create points where the images were captured and ‘cones-of-view’ that indicate the direction the camera was facing.

“As the pioneer in the field of geo-imaging, Ricoh understands that image direction is a key part of many GIS workflows,” said Jeff Lengyel, National Manager for Ricoh America’s Digital Camera Division. “Prior to the availability of the SE-3 module, images from the 500SE were simply points on a map with no indication of the direction the camera was facing. Now we can
provide an accurate visual reference of an image’s azimuth as well as the field-of-view the camera could see from that position.”

Ricoh said the SE3 module utilizes a state-of-the-art 3-axis compass developed by Honeywell and a precision SiRF III GPS chipset from GlobalSat.
