Improve your Mobile Field Service Performance

Mobile devices are allowing employees in the field to gather data, discuss problems, and access diagnostic tools and manuals, more easily than ever before.

But are we making the most of mobile technology?

Whether you are looking to ‘go mobile’ for the first time or improve your current mobility strategy, watch this recorded webinar to learn how you can transform your service delivery performance through increased connectivity.

Trimble Pulse staff will be joined by guest speakers, Safelite AutoGlass and MaseTec, and will cover:

  • The top factors driving field service organisations to make investments in mobility solutions
  • The challenges service executives are facing around mobile rollouts
  • The tools, technologies and best practice approaches to setting up an effective mobile strategy

Read the latest Technology&more!

The latest issue of Technology&more has been released by Trimble.

This issue focuses around the challenges and opportunities that change brings for geospatial professionals and features individuals and organisations that are embracing these opportunities. In Russia, geospatial technologies play central roles in the efficient construction of a new skyscraper. In California, specialists in airport data management use a unique laser scanning approach to handle complex problems in asset management at a major international airport. In the Caribbean, GNSS supports scientists who are studying the effects of rising sea levels, while outside Washington, D.C., a BIM-based project will protect the region’s water quality. And there are lots more

Satellite data monitoring environmental impacts

As we use the Earth’s resources, we inevitably impact it, in particular resources that are acquired from under the surface, like coal seam gas (GCS). Currently limited evidence is available on the environmental impacts of GCS.1

To gain a clearer understanding of the environmental impacts caused by GCS production, a project is now underway in NSW. It began in March 2016 and will be run for four years to monitor movements of the Earth’s surface. It is being conducted by Geoscience Australia and the NSW Department of Industry’s Division of Resources in the town of Camden.

The project will use a combination of new and historic satellite imagery and GNSS data to measure any ground subsidence. It will also use a network of 20 geodetic monitoring stations to check for indications of increased seismic activity.

camdenThese monitoring stations consist of a mounted GNSS receiver and a pair of radar reflectors, which will provide easily detectable reference points in the satellite imagery. The GNSS data will be transmitted in real time and measured monthly to provide an independent dataset of ground movements.

Research results from the Camden environmental monitoring project will be published on the NSW Department of Industry Resources & Energy website.

Geospatial technologies are changing the world

tandm5See how with some summer reading of Trimble T&M

Got a bit of time on your hands with the Christmas break? Sit back and relax with the latest version of Trimble T&M, the magazine for surveying and mapping professionals.

In the cover story, researchers travel to Pakistan to study the region’s enormous glaciers. The data collected will help protect nearby villages from sudden, potentially devastating flooding. Then, in Florida learn how environmental specialists use geospatial technologies to manage vulnerable wetlands and water supplies. Their skills support work to restore damaged areas and create a thriving ecosystem.

In Sweden, take a glimpse into the nation’s massive forestry industry, which relies on healthy, sustainable forests. Geospatial solutions enable foresters to develop efficient planning and management strategies. And in Italy, a small business uses a modern approach to support cost-effective inspection and maintenance of the nation’s railway system.
