    • Please state pricing for different levels of accuracy, and whether or not any post-processing is required. If the solution requires post processing, will the post processing software, as well as subscriptions(s) to base station networks) be included, or is there an additional cost? Please include any additional costs as part of the RFQ.
    • Please specify if location readings may be impacted by nearby buildings or trees.
  • GPS/GNSS receivers must be able to work seamlessly with ESRI Collector for ArcGIS, running on Windows 10 or iOS operating systems.
    • NOTE: Collector for ArcGIS is being used to add signs to the inventory.
  • Connectivity (Bluetooth, USB, cellular, wireless, etcetera)
