Trimble announces new geospatial solutions at Intergeo

September 27, 2017  - By

Trimble made several product announcements at Intergeo 2017, the world’s largest conference on geodesy, geoinformatics and land management.

The new solutions include:

Trimble C5 and C3 mechanical total stations

The Trimble C5 and Trimble C3 mechanical total stations are the only mechanical total stations in the industry to come standard with autofocus technology. With premium-quality Nikon optics, the new C-Series reduces time in the field with improved measuring speed and the longest EDM range of any Trimble conventional instrument.

The T10 is a high-performance, large-screen device suitable for a variety of survey and GIS applications that provides the processing power of a laptop computer in tablet form to enhance efficiencies for geospatial users in the field. (Now you only need one device for collecting and processing data while out on the job.)

Trimble Business Center and Trimble Clarity

The newest version of Trimble Business Center introduces enhancements and new capabilities to process high-accuracy GNSS data, create CAD deliverables, and leverage full data traceability through the project lifecycle.

Trimble Business Center version 4.0 introduced new capabilities to process high-accuracy GNSS data with confidence, create CAD deliverables and leverage full data traceability throughout the project lifecycle. Surveyors can obtain greater field flexibility without compromising quality via the addition of a new GNSS processing engine that increases solution reliability for baselines exceeding several hundred kilometers/miles.

Version 4.0 also extends the survey CAD capabilities including text editing, ortho drafting and coordinate geometry (COGO) tools that provide a comprehensive set of tools for rapidly producing end-client deliverables. A new History Log feature captures all data changes throughout the project, from GNSS processing to CAD deliverable, providing greater workflow transparency, data traceability and ultimate confidence.

Trimble Clarity is a new cloud-based application within the Trimble Connect collaboration platform that enables surveyors to easily share rich project data and imagery, allowing clients — even those who have no experience with engineering software — to view and use data in a web browser.

The result is improved workflow efficiencies and greater situational awareness that enable more informed decision-making.

Users can perform 3D measurements, annotate objects and quickly collaborate with project stakeholders. Multidiscipline teams now have access to a single source of geospatial data that enables more accurate and informed decisions, increases productivity, minimizes rework and reduces project delays.

Trimble Clarity reduces the time required for large file transfers and eliminates the need for specialized software knowledge to get value from laser scanning deliverables.

The latest version of eCognition adds 3D point cloud analytics and deep learning technology so you can perform a broader range of geospatial analysis with a greater level of control.

Trimble GEDO IMS System

This new addition to Trimble’s track survey and scanning rail portfolio is lightweight, flexible and fast, combining an inertial measurement unit (IMU) with scanning and geodetic sensors for surveying railway lines and documenting assets along the track.

The trolley system is lightweight, flexible and fast. It combines an IMU with scanning and geodetic sensors for surveying railway lines and documenting assets along the track.

The GEDO IMS System provides highly accurate as-built survey documentation of the track and 3D point clouds for asset data collection along the track. The trolley system’s lightweight design is ideal for single-crew operation and on projects near active railway lines. GEDO IMS Field Software and the GEDO Office Software Suite enable smooth data flow between the field and the office. GEDO Scan Office provides enhanced processing for asset data collection and clearance applications.

The basic Trimble GEDO IMS System consists of the Trimble GEDO CE 2.0 Trolley System, Trimble GEDO IMU Unit, Trimble Tablet PC and the Trimble GEDO IMS Field and GEDO Office Software. For mapping applications it can be combined with the Trimble TX6 and TX8 laser scanners.
