Trimble opened its Dimensions 2005 with more than 1,300 registered attendees from more than 50 countries around the world. The three-day conference focused on applying technology to meet the needs faced daily by surveying, construction, and civil engineering professionals. Trimble Dimensions 2005 was held October 24-26 at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas.


The theme of Trimble Dimensions 2005 was "Move Your Business Forward," with an emphasis on improving productivity and lowering costs through the application of positioning, wireless and software technologies. With more than 150 educational sessions, the conference featured a wide range of programs including presentations on the underlying technologies, sessions on applying those technologies to real world problems as well as introductory and advanced product training. In addition, some sessions were presented to highlight techniques to help organizations maximize their return on investment.


Many of the application sessions featured Trimble users to explain the practical use of technology in surveying, civil engineering, highway and heavy construction, site preparation, and construction vehicle fleet management, as well as other emerging applications.


The conference scope includes the complete suite of Trimble survey, construction, engineering and infrastructure solutions, including products from Tripod Data Systems (TDS), Applanix, Pacific Crest and Apache. Highlighted solutions and technologies include GPS; total stations; field computing and data collection; 3D scanning; wireless communications; data transfer; and field and office applications. Other technology providers, who are Trimble partners, participated in the conference to extend the conference’s range of products and applications.
