Anatum Field Solutions: Transforming Field Operations
Headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon Anatum Field Solutions is a rental company in the U.S. that assists its clients to address the complexities of collecting data in field operations. With a competent team that has years of experience in conducting environmental surveys, the firm enables government agencies, private developers, environmental consulting companies, and research with its rugged tablet and GNSS rental solution.
Over the years, the firm has increased the capability of GNSS receiver through including the Trimble R1, Arrow 100, and iSXBlue II submeter receivers and even the 1-2 centimeter Arrow 200 RTK receiver in its portfolio. GNSS receiver also incorporates rugged Android tablets and Windows Mobile handhelds running ArcPad 10 for rendering field service applications to the site managers.
Initially, Anatum used iPhones to navigate project areas and leverage other field apps. However, due to the proliferation of technology and unreliability of cellular services in specific areas, Anatum started using a sub-meter receiver Bluetoothed to its iPads in 2013.

This advancement allowed field technicians to accurately navigate the sites and collect specific data to meet the projects needs. The site managers can collect data in apps like iGeoTrak and Fulcrum and save it to a project cloud later.
Since its genesis, the firm’s field iPad solutions have brought great success for its customers in several industries under extreme weather conditions—rainy weather, high sea level to mountaintops. The firm takes pride to be one of the few rental companies offering a field iPad, rugged Android, and robust Windows Mobile handheld solutions and high accuracy GNSS units that couples with tablets for collecting highly accurate location data. The equipment rentals are intuitive and user-friendly and can connect to the Verizon cellular network for surfing the web and connecting to an RTK network.
