Trimble Access Aerial Imaging Version 2.2.6 Issues


It has been reported that the Trimble Access Aerial imaging v2.2.6. is causing problems with the Trimble Yuma 2 device where the GNSS positioning is not reported correctly or very slow to update its current position. As this can be a safety issue, we request all customers to not install Trimble Access Aerial Imaging v.2.2.6 on any device until this has been corrected. For customers that have installed Trimble Access Aerial Imaging v.2.2.6, a full roll-back to version 2.2.5 has to be conducted.

For more information please download the product bulletin.

We apologise for this situation and will keep you updated as soon as Trimble Access Aerial Imaging can be updated.

Opportunities and challenges for Surveyors

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is one of the most intriguing opportunities for surveyors to come along in years. This model-based approach combines technologies and processes to support the efficient creation and use of information for building construction and operations. Because of its strong ties to spatial information, BIM offers a familiar landscape and rich possibilities for surveyors and other geospatial professionals, according to Ron Bisio, vice president of Trimble Geospatial.

In-depth look into Trimble Business Center (TBC)

Surveyors have always used cutting-edge technology. Now that field notes have been replaced by controllers and most of the work is being done in software packages it only makes sense they this software is also cutting edge.

Trimble Business Center (TBC) provides you with the capability to efficiently edit, process, and adjust geospatial data and create deliverables with confidence and is still evolving.

Geospatial Applications Engineer, Chris Power, gives us an in-depth look into TBC in the video below.

New version of Trimble Pivot available

Trimble has released a new version of the Trimble® Pivot™ Platform software, a modular solution for real-time GNSS infrastructure management, ranging from a single-base GNSS Continuously Operating Reference Station (CORS) to a full Real-Time Network (RTN), serving thousands of end-users worldwide.

Version 3.10 provides improvements to network performance and office and field productivity. The new features and capabilities include:

    • Galileo support: provides access to five GNSS constellations—GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, QZSS and now Galileo—allowing end-users to expect improved positioning accuracy and fix performance due to the 50 percent increase of accessible satellites;
    • GPS L5 support: utilises all available L5 third-frequency GPS observations to enable end users to further improve field productivity;
    • Code Bias Calibration client and server improvements: provides a higher availability of network-modeled RTK corrections to allow field users to reduce dependency on station biases;
    • Sparse Network: supports Galileo and BeiDou. Sparse Network, a Trimble technology, enables RTN operators to achieve the benefits of a full network-processed GNSS constellation even if the network is not fully covered with multi-constellation CORS.
    • Dynamic Station Coordinates (DSC) module improvements: minimises the impact of erroneous reference station coordinates to improve system performance.

“Accessibility to the Galileo constellation and the addition of the L5 third-frequency observations in particular, makes the Pivot Platform significantly more versatile to improve functionality and performance for end users in the field,” said Mark Richter, director of marketing for Advanced Positioning Division at Trimble.

The Trimble Pivot Platform version 3.10 is now available. Customers with a valid software maintenance agreement receive the new version at no additional cost. For more information, visit http://www.trimble.com/rtn or contact your local office.

Where’s the money going to be?

Whether your business is booming, or if you are not experiencing growth, you need to know where your future growth is going to be. In 2016 Ron Bisio, Vice President, Surveying & Geospatial at Trimble, spoke to the Geospatial World Forum His talk covers two where the Geospatial professionals will need to move to stay profitable and successful.
