Trimble Adds Smartphone App to MyTopo Terrain Navigator Pro Software
"The TNP app provides a simple solution for professionals to collect and seamlessly transmit data from the field to the office using a smartphone instead of a consumer GPS device," said Kevin Toohill, general manager of MyTopo, a Trimble Company. "This mobile app is ideal for entry-level GIS applications not previously addressed by Trimble products. These users may not require high-precision for every field project and they can migrate to our professional-level data collectors at any time."
Using the GPS built into smartphones, professionals can collect field data in areas without a cellular or data signal. As soon as professionals return to a WiFi or data connection like a 3G network, they can share information in real-time with the office. In addition, topographic, aerial and street maps can be downloaded onto the phone for offline use and data display. Other app features include compass and geo-information such as latitude/longitude, elevation and direction.
The new mobile app is a free download and only accessible to Terrain Navigator Pro users with a licensed copy of the 9.2 software. For more information about TNP apps and map software, go to www.mytopo.com/tnp.
