Trimble Releases New Water Utility Software Mapping
Trimble is unveiling the latest version of its smart water mapping and work management cloud software, Trimble Unity version 2.0.
The new version adds new capabilities to support complex water, wastewater and storm water industry asset maintenance planning. It also is better poised for execution workflows, support for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) GNSS mapping receivers for smart devices and cloud-based single sign-on integration with Esri ArcGIS Online.
“The new version allows customers to use their mobile device of choice with a robust software solution for asset maintenance workflows that supports high-accuracy mapping and location. The addition of the Esri ArcGIS Web map and single sign-on integration also enables customers using Esri GIS to leverage their GIS investment and easily deploy Trimble Unity throughout their organization,” says Rami Naber, product manager for Trimble Water.
Its advanced asset maintenance capabilities allow utility customers to quickly search and group various types of utility assets, including meters, pipelines, valves and hydrants, into prioritized collections of work that can be easily assigned to crews for completion. The new features help reduce the time and cost associated with water asset repair and installation work.
Version 2.0 includes support for the latest Trimble and Spectra Precision BYOD GNSS mapping receivers to provide customers with new options for mapping and locating utility assets and keeping their GIS up-to-date and accurate using iOS, Android or Windows mobile handhelds, smart phones and tablets. Utility mobile workers can now connect their mobile devices via Bluetooth technology to the Trimble R1 GNSS receiver, a BYOD GNSS receiver with sub-meter accuracy, or the Spectra Precision MobileMapper 300 receiver that supports up to centimeter-level accuracy.
In addition, Trimble Unity version 2.0 leverages the Esri ArcGIS platform across the product. It provides support for Esri Web map technology and adds single sign-on functionality that enables licensed Esri ArcGIS Online customers to use their Esri login credentials to sign-in and use the full capabilities of their Trimble Unity version 2.0 software.
The latest version of Trimble Unity is available now from Trimble’s Water Division and its authorized distribution partners.
