Choosing the right Wacom product for your needs is made easier once the families of product choices are explained.
Pen Displays for GIS
The DTU series of interactive pen displays are excellent choices for GIS editing, annotation, mark-up, redlining, measuring and cursor control for software navigation. Working in GIS software with a Wacom pen directly on-screen optimizes natural hand-eye coordination and is much quicker, easier and intuitive for digitizing and collaboration than using a mouse.
The Cintiq family of interactive pen displays provide the best pen and screen performance available for GIS professionals to create digital designs with the precision and realism of a paper workflow. Cartographers, planners and designers utilize Wacom’s highest levels of pen pressure and tilt sensitivity to create photo-realistic renderings, stunning maps, atlases, brochures, exhibits and unique hillshades and painted relief imagery. In addition to integrating digital art tools with GIS, Cintiq pen displays deliver ergonomic benefits through flexible positioning of the display stand and the comfort of a cushioned pen.
Opaque Tablets for GIS
The Intuos5 touch family of pen tablets provide the benefits of absolute positioning and pressure-sensitive pen input for use with an existing monitor. Intuos5 pen tablets come in several sizes to suit your desktop and monitor configuration for optimal comfort and control.
Stylus for GIS
Wacom’s family of Stylus products for iPads and touchscreen slates, called Bamboo Stylus, are valuable tools for providing greater precision than you can get with your finger. They are great choices for use in Mobile GIS applications.
