Trimble has introduced the Trimble Positions Mobile extension, a streamlined choice for integrating Trimble’s GNSS professional field solutions and data verification into the Esri ArcGIS for Windows Mobile environment.
The Trimble Positions software was first introduced as a development kit to Trimble’s GIS developer community in late 2011. Today, the software suite has expanded to provide a streamlined option for users who wish to work directly with Esri’s ArcGIS for Windows Mobile technology.
“Now, common Trimble and Esri users have a streamlined workflow between their Trimble devices and the Esri mobile software environment,” said Daniel Wallace of Trimble’s GIS Data Collection Division. “Because all data is verified and validated before it reaches Esri’s Enterprise GIS, each update adds value, making the geo-database more reliable and more useful.”
Using Trimble GNSS receivers, field workers can collect GNSS data for all feature geometries while leveraging the performance features of Trimble handhelds for improved productivity in tough GNSS environments. Data can be automatically posted to the enterprise server from the field where Trimble Positions Desktop add-in is used to process and validate the data coming in from field crews. Office administrators can check for new sessions, differentially correct the data, and verify that the data meets accuracy requirements before updating the enterprise database.
This release adds real time and postprocessed corrections support for Trimble’s GNSS receivers, including the Trimble GeoExplorer, Juno, Nomad, and Pro series receivers.
