Digital Pen: Capturx for ArcGIS Desktop - On Site Digitising



Here at digital urban we do have a tendency to track down the latest gadget, all in the name of research of course. As such the Capturx digital pen for ArcGIS has caught our eye. Using the digital pen you can simply print out a map from ArcGIS, draw features on it using the pen and when you sync all your features are geo-referenced and integrated into your digital map.



Capturx for ArcGIS can be used with any ArcGIS Desktop licenses, including ArcView®, ArcEditor™, or ArcInfo®, and is compatible with geodatabase feature classes, such as personal and enterprise ArcSDE®.

Take a look at adapx.com for more info.

We will have more on the digital pen soon as we can get hold of one to try out..

    Bentley have had something like this in their labs for the past couple of years (I believe it was descriibed at a recent BE). Their implementation, at least, used microdot patterns inserted into prints to tell the pen where it was.

    I wonder who holds the patent?

    Not Bentley. The pen technology is from Anoto, but Adapx has been working the software since 1999.
