New Trimble TerraFlex Software Edition Simplifies GIS Data Capture
Trimble has released Trimble® TerraFlex Premium edition, a new tier of Trimble’s flagship Geographic Information System (GIS) data collection software. The edition includes the Trimble Offline GNSS Corrections™ service, a new automated workflow for delivering high-accuracy GIS data capture in a wider range of locations and difficult GNSS environments than was previously possible. The service streamlines and simplifies high-accuracy data collection by automatically post-processing the GNSS data captured during field operations without any complicated set-up. With Trimble Offline GNSS Corrections, users get the benefit of post-processing without any of the hassle, resulting in more accurate positions, more of the time, with less effort.
TerraFlex users can increase the quality and speed of their data collection using offline GNSS corrections in situations where real-time services are intermittent or unavailable. Using the new service, all data from the field is automatically processed in the cloud without user intervention, and the most accurate real-time or offline processed position is stored for each feature, unlocking a high-productivity enhancement for all TerraFlex Premium subscribers.
Simplified workflow and purchasing
Combining data collection software and offline GNSS corrections into a single TerraFlex subscription simplifies both the workflow and the purchasing process for GIS organizations, from state and local governments to enterprise customers including federal governments and utilities companies. This turn-key workflow to collect, process and deliver the most accurate and reliable positioning information reduces complicated manual processing steps and helps preserve the integrity of the data.
Streamlined post-processing using TerraFlex offline GNSS corrections is also available to Esri® ArcGIS® users, with the new Trimble Terra™ Office add-in for the Esri ArcMap® GIS application. The new add-in replaces both the Trimble Positions™ Desktop and Trimble TerraFlex Desktop add-ins, and supports offline GNSS corrections as well as existing desktop post-processing workflows. Terra Office is available as a yearly subscription.
”With Trimble offline GNSS corrections, we’ve taken the manual steps out of post-processing and made it as effortless as possible,” said Gareth Gibson, marketing director, Trimble Mapping & GIS. “The offline GNSS corrections workflow enables TerraFlex customers to expand the locations and environments in which they work while still achieving high accuracy results, and all without needing to become a GNSS expert.”
Trimble TerraFlex Premium edition subscription is available through Trimble Geospatial Distribution Partners.
The Trimble Offline GNSS Corrections service in TerraFlex utilizes a network of community base stations, and is broadly available in North America, UK, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
The Trimble Terra Office add-in for Esri ArcMap software is available through Trimble Geospatial Distribution Partners.
