Trimble Introduces New Features in its TerraSync Software 02.27.2002

Latest version provides easier and more flexible data collection and maintenance.

TerraSync version 2.10 software includes significant new functionality for easier and more flexible data collection and maintenance.

The TerraSync software now gives GIS professionals the convenience of using any Microsoft Windows or Windows CE device, including laptops, tablets, Pocket PCs and pen computers, with a Trimble GPS Pathfinder receiver to collect and update data in the field.

Natural resource, forestry and utility managers, along with urban planners and many other organizations use Trimble’s GPS/GIS systems to ensure the GIS database always contains high quality, up-to-date data.

The new TerraSync Professional edition supports LizardTech Inc.’s MrSID, the standard image compression format. MrSID enables image files of unlimited size to be quickly downloaded and displayed so users can visually verify data in the field, ensuring the right data is collected and maintained.

The new software version includes Trimble’s innovative SuperCorrect technology, significantly increasing field data collection flexibility and accuracy. With this new technology, users can postprocess the GPS data in Trimble’s GPS Pathfinder Office software, using different settings than what may have been used in the field. This is ideal if the user is working in less favorable conditions, such as a forest canopy environment. The user can use generous mask settings to allow them to record as much data as possible while in the field. Then, back in the office, they can apply different settings and filters, to achieve the right balance between accuracy and yield.

The new TerraSync software version 2.10 gives users two options depending on their work requirements: Professional and Standard. The fully-featured TerraSync Professional software is ideal for high quality GIS data collection and ongoing data maintenance. The TerraSync Standard edition is focused on the collection of new GIS data.

In addition to the data collection features, the Professional edition includes data maintenance functions, such as the ability to upload of data from an existing GIS database; display raster and vector background data in the map display; connect to an Internet Map Server; and input data from a laser rangefinder or external sensor.
