Trimble GIS Data Collection Software Includes New Functionality to Drive Increased Field Efficiency

Three Key Software Releases Include Additions to Trimble TerraSync Software, the New TerraSync Centimeter Edition and Increased Functionality for Trimble GPS Pathfinder Office Software

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 22, 2011—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced the release of its next generation of Trimble® TerraSync™ software. TerraSync software is used by utilities, public sector, natural resources, and many other organizations worldwide as a key component of enterprise Geographic Information System (GIS) data collection and asset management projects. The latest release focuses on updates requested by users to address their changing needs.

Key updates in the TerraSync software include:

  • QuickPoint data collection mode for easy, productive one-click data capture. Working in Trimble QuickPoint™ data collection mode, repetitive point features can be collected with a single press of a button or a tap of the screen.
  • Trimble LaserAce 1000 rangefinder integration. Data collection in QuickPoint mode is fast and efficient—just one remote measurement is required to log point features to collect more measurements in less time.

In addition, Trimble introduced its new TerraSync Centimeter edition—supporting Trimble surveying instruments, including the Trimble R8 GNSS receiver. By leveraging RTK receivers, field workers can achieve centimeter-accuracy using existing GIS workflows.

"With the latest TerraSync software release, GIS field workers can be more efficient in the field. Providing new, streamlined ways of collecting data can save organizations time and money,” said Daniel Wallace, general manager of Trimble's GIS Data Collection Division. "In addition, support for both laser rangefinders and RTK receivers allow organizations to access the tools and technologies that provide everyday advantage without sacrificing GIS efficiencies.”

To increase efficiency in the office, a new version of Trimble GPS Pathfinder® Office software has also been released which is fully integrated with TerraSync software—including enhancements to the Data Dictionary Editor module, updates to TerraSync Studio and Configuration Manager, improved support for the Web Map Server protocol and new coordinate systems.

Trimble TerraSync software and the new version of GPS Pathfinder Office software are available now from authorized Trimble resellers or from For additional information about TerraSync software, visit:
