Trimble Introduces Flexible GNSS Mapping and GIS Solution
SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 3, 2008 – Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) today introduced a flexible Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver for Geographic Information System (GIS) data collection and mapping-the GPS Pathfinder ProXRT receiver. The receiver combines a high-performance GPS receiver with Trimble H-Star technology, OmniSTAR correction capability, and optional GLONASS capability to provide various levels of positioning accuracies-from submeter to decimeter (10 centimeter) accuracy.
With Bluetooth® technology, the GPS Pathfinder ProXRT receiver allows for cable-free communications to a field computer. The receiver can be connected to a variety of field computers, including the rugged Trimble Nomad™ series, Trimble Recon® handheld, or the Trimble Ranger™ handheld as well as laptops, tablet PCs, and PDAs.
The Trimble TerraSync™ software or Trimble GPScorrect™ extension for ESRI ArcPad software provides a complete solution from the field to office and back. Mapping professionals can also use GPS Pathfinder Tools Software Development Kit (SDK) to build their own customized application to fit their unique needs.
