Our range of office software solutions expedite the processing of field data and streamline your workflows, enabling you to quickly generate quality results with confidence.
Trimble solutions are designed to work with multiple computer devices, depending upon your application and industry. For example, the Trimble GNSS systems and total station fleet are operated via a range of mobile, handheld devices such as the ultra-compact TDC600, or the powerful TSC series of controllers, the 3-inch screen TSC3 or the larger, 7-inch screen TSC7. All these handheld devices run Trimble Access 2020, which is the leading field software for survey professionals. Since Trimble Access is a cloud-based software system, you can seamlessly connect your surveying device with your controller, as well as instantly being able to share your survey data with your office software, Trimble Business Center. This ensures that you can share data quickly, securely and wirelessly – enabling you to get on with the job at hand.
Trimble has a range of workflows for exporting and downloading data depending upon the device being used. For this question we will focus on the various export options from Trimble Business Center (TBC) – the end-to-end office suite for the survey and geospatial professional. If you need to know the download workflow for a specific Trimble product, we recommend taking a look on that specific product page.
With TBC, you can import a wide variety of geospatial data types from your GNSS, total station or laser scanning equipment, including 3D scan data, survey data, imagery and photogrammetry. TBC features a range of supported workflows including control surveying, field to finish, GIS feature collection, construction staking, data prep, drafting and terrestrial and aerial photogrammetry– as well as vertical workflows such as tunnelling, monitoring and mobile mapping. TBC is designed for the real world, with interoperability in mind. You can therefore connect to other leading software packages from ESRI, Autodesk and Bentley via geodatabase connections, and TBC also supports the widest range of industry standard export formats for CAD, BIM, ESRI shapefiles, PDF, DSM and DTMs as well as high resolution .html, Google Earth and .jpeg panoramas.
Trimble design and manufacture a huge range of devices to serve the construction, surveying and engineering sectors. These devices are designed to increase workflow efficiencies, improve safety on site, be simple to use, and vitally, are manufactured to be robust and rugged, for use in tough outdoor environments such as the construction site, highway, railway or mine.
These devices include a range of high-accuracy and highly reliable total stations, for both the survey and construction professional, as well as a range of laser scanning solutions, including the powerful yet very simple to use X7 laser scanner, with self-registration, self-levelling, and requires no annual calibration. The applications for laser scanning are endless, with customers utilising laser scanning’s high accuracy to produce detailed surveys, visualisations of complex 3D structures and the production of models for BIM to name just a few.
Trimble is also renowned for its innovative GNSS systems establishing its reputation over 30 years. These systems are innovative and ground breaking with the latest releases including the Trimble R12, which introduced geospatial professionals to Trimble ProPoint™ GNSS Technology which greatly improves performance in challenging GNSS conditions. This was followed by the Trimble R12i which offers Trimble TIP Tilt Compensation Technology – Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) based tilt compensation for accurate setting out and measuring points without precisely levelling the pole.
Trimble also provide specialist equipment that serves the rail industry (such as the GEDO system) as well as solutions for highways and corridor mapping, via their vehicle mounted mobile mapping solutions.
Trimble offer a range of workflows for the modern digital construction professional. These hardware and software solutions are specifically designed to make the construction process more cost effective, more efficient, safer, and more accountable – by reducing waste, reducing personnel on site and reducing the need for costly and inefficient rework. The RTS range of robotic total stations are designed to be used by a sole operator, immediately cutting down on-site personnel and costs. The RTS range automate a number of laborious setting out tasks – minimising errors and dramatically increasing efficiency. Combine your RTS with Trimble Fieldlink software for the simplest and most efficient workflow from the office to the construction site and vice versa. You can prepare building setting out data in the office, then upload via Fieldlink to your on-site crews, and you can review the reports and data returning from the site, allowing you to update and refine your BIM model.
Besides setting out, Trimble’s digital construction tools include 3D laser scanning with the TX6, TX8 and X7 laser scanner, which features self-registration, self-levelling, and requires no annual calibration. The construction applications for laser scanning are practically endless; as-built verification, scan to BIM, floor flatness verification, prefabrication Skid QA/QC, precast set-up verification, underground utilities and facade studies.
Trimble also leads the way in construction visualisation technology. The XR10 with Microsoft Hololens 2 Hardhat brings your 3D BIM data to life, allowing you to overlay 3D imagery directly onto the construction site. Bring your data to life, and massively increase project understanding with your key stakeholders. For outdoor use, connect Trimble SiteVision to your mobile phone, enabling you to visualise your 3D design information in situ. With augmented reality technology, you can visualise your built asset before a single brick has been laid, reveal hidden, underground utilities, or you can clearly communicate project progress.
KOREC understands that effective data collection is just one stage of the process. Whether you work in surveying, engineering, construction, rail or highways, you need powerful and intuitive office software that turns your data into valuable client deliverables, whilst fitting in seamlessly with your existing workflow.
Software such as Trimble Business Center – a field-to-finish CAD for the surveying professional. Combine all your data sources including GNSS, level and total station in one platform, to produce CAD drawings, surfaces, volumes and contour lines. Import point cloud data in the form of 3D scans from terrestrial tools or orthomosaics from aerial (UAV) sources to build digital surface models and to extract features to complement traditional survey deliverables.
For powerful 3D scan data processing and analysis, look to Trimble RealWorks and EdgeWise. For the surveying professional, RealWorks processes data from laser scanning solutions such as the TX6, TX8, SX10 and X7 scanners, enabling you to register, visualise, explore and manipulate as-built or scene point cloud data. Trimble EdgeWise is the ideal solution for the construction professional or those working in BIM or MEP. Automated feature extraction allows you to easily identify pipes, conduit, structural steel, walls, windows and more, and then quickly export to Trimble or 3rd party CAD packages.
For monitoring applications, software is the at the core of the project. With Trimble 4D Control, experience real-time monitoring and unparalleled movement analysis for a range of sensors. Fully customisable to fit your project requirements so you gather only the information you need, allowing you to make informed decisions, fast.
For GNSS data to GIS, there’s GPS Pathfinder Office. Prepare your field collected GNSS data for your GIS platform with a range of powerful tools, such as differential corrections to improve your data, and a sophisticated data dictionary editor, before exporting to a variety of GIS and CAD formats.
