Data Collectors for Sale

Data collectors have long been used to aid in the logging and processing of complex data sets. Over the years, these hand-held surveying instruments have become more portable, durable, connective, and technologically advanced than ever.

At Allen Instruments & Supplies, we carry the latest data collectors manufactured by some of the industry’s most renowned brands. When you purchase products from us, you can expect to receive high-value productivity and positioning solutions paired with premium technical support.

What Are Data Collectors?

Data collectors are electronic field books that log and record field measurements, compute and display coordinate data, and enable the layout of points, lines, and spatial information. These devices can be compatible with GPS receivers, 3D scanning devices, digital levels, and manual and robotic total stations. Once users gather information on their data collectors, they can transfer the records onto their chosen office software platform or into a computer-aided design (CAD) program for processing. 

These devices are particularly well-suited for survey engineering applications, which involve the collection, analysis, and management of global spatial infrastructures. Professionals in this field use data collection devices to gather and set out information for terrestrial measurement and land development, natural resource management, and the construction and monitoring of man-made roads, structures, and features. Surveying engineers use this data to make conclusions about the positioning of objects on the earth’s surface.
