Trimble Version Upgrades

Having the latest version means you have the software’s latest features and advances. That’s why we’re bringing you Trimble’s latest updates.

UASMaster v7.1.2 available

20160803-UASMastersTrimble has announced  a new version of one of Trimble’s UAS processing software solutions, UASMaster, has been released.

UASMaster v7.1.2 provides minor enhancements that improve processing stability and performance. The patch also includes language updates.

Download the upgrade.

UAV-250x150Aerial Imaging v2.2.2

This new version supports the Sony a6000 camera for the ZX5 aerial imaging rover. It also resolves some know issues, including the failure of large .gwt files to import and the issue with memory leaks.

The firmware now handles low battery voltages more accurately. While this improvement increases safety it has decreased flying time.

20160803-mx7New Version of Trimble MX7

Trimble have announced that a new version of the Trimble MX7 Mobile Imaging System is now available. Updates to the system include changes to the sensor head, roof rack, height rise accessory, and TMI software.

Trimble TerraSync Software v5.86

The new version of Trimble TerraSync field software is a maintenance release which contains fixes for a number of support issues. This includes two Trimble R2 GNSS receiver issues: being able to log base files and an issue which could cause current estimated accuracy to 20160803-terrasyncspike when starting a new feature while the R2 was receiving RTC corrections.

Trimble GPS Pathfinder Office Software v5.85

Version 5.85 for the Trimble GPS Pathfinder Office Software is a maintenance release. This upgrade includes improvements to the way code postprocessed estimated accuracies are calculated for the Trimble Geo 7X handheld. This generally means lower accuracy estimations which more closely match the actual error of the postprocessed positions. The software now supports world files (.wld) with comma separated decimals.

20160803-tridentscreenTrimble Trident v7.3.1

The upgrade to Trimble Trident, version 7.3.1, includes a range of bug fixes and improvements. The new version will be available next week for customers with a valid Trimble Trident maintenance contract.

If you would like further information on any of these version upgrades, please contact your local UPG office.

Still using pen and paper? You know who you are…

Terraflex

Lucia, Geospatial Sales Consultant from our Adelaide office, offers some advice about how you can kick your pen and paper habit with Trimble Terraflex…

“As a Sales Consultant at UPG, it’s my job to recommend the best Mapping and GIS solutions for my clients, so here I want to briefly talk about my experience with Trimble’s software platform TerraFlex, and how it can save your company time and money.

“In an age when technology knows no bounds, why is it that companies are still using pen and paper forms to collect data in the field? In short, it’s because finding the right software for your organisation can often lead to a complete technical jargon overload.

“When I first heard about TerraFlex, I assumed it was TerraSync or ArcGIS Mobile in app form. I now know it’s quite a different kettle of fish.  The easiest way I describe TerraFlex is; it replaces pen and paper in the field – something that organisations are still relying heavily on. Not only is filling out paper forms difficult for the user, it often leads to confusion, inconsistency and lost information – think forms floating around somewhere in the backseat of a field truck. TerraFlex is a great alternative because you can create the form you need electronically and have it out in the field with you on your existing smart phone, Trimble handheld or tablet.

“It’s not a complex GIS mapping programme, it has been designed as a simplified data collection tool, with an efficient approach to collecting geo-located information.  You start by creating forms on your desktop and pushing them through the cloud to your field device, then collecting data in the field by capturing or digitising your position and filling out the form, all the while being able to manage your data on your desktop. Any type of data can be collected in the field and it is fully functional offline, using Google Maps as its reference.

“The best thing is, all this data goes straight back to your desktop so you can manage it there as well. You can imagine as a manager how good this would be – pushing the relevant forms out to the relevant people and receiving all the data back in one place. Data administration and management is done for you. I have personally used it for collecting client contact information, but my clients use it for anything from emergency response management, to asset inspections, to vehicle start-ups.

“I have spent a considerable amount of time in my role at UPG listening to what organisations need. Consistently, I see managers searching for solutions that are easy to use, produce good quality data, save time, money, and reduce errors and risk. Well, I say… look no further because Trimble’s TerraFlex can do all of these things for your business.”
