Sunnyvale, Calif., July 11, 2013—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today the new Trimble® MX2 mobile spatial imaging data capture system. The MX2 extends the capabilities of geospatial professionals, allowing them to safely and effectively address complex projects by collecting spatial data from a mobile scanning platform. The Trimble MX2 provides a versatile and complimentary addition to Trimble’s family of mobile data capture systems.
Designed for mapping, surveying and engineering environments, the MX2 is rugged, lightweight and portable. It is also easily deployed and redeployed on projects similar to conventional surveying equipment. A precise laser scanner, along with an embedded Trimble-Applanix GNSS/Inertial positioning system, allows geospatial professionals to create the point cloud accuracies necessary for many spatial imaging projects. Accompanied by Trimble Trident software to capture, process and analyze point data, the MX2 offers a ready-to-use workflow for surveyors and professionals in mapping, engineering, planning, oil and gas, utilities, mining, environmental, public safety and more. The system is available in single and dual-laser versions.
In conjunction with the MX2 system, Trimble also announced new features for its Trident Software 6.0. The software developed for rapid transformation of point clouds and imagery into geospatial intelligence has been significantly enhanced to provide a scalable software suite for a wide range of users. Additions include the incorporation of direct trajectory import and the Trimble Coordinate System Manager. The Trimble Trident software suite is ideal for the analysis of mobile laser scanner data and geo-referenced imagery.
"The Trimble MX2 provides survey companies with the opportunity to enter the world of mobile scanning at a time when it is becoming a desired service within their solution portfolios,” said Katherine Sandford, general manager of Trimble’s Imaging Division. “The MX2 offers a simple and highly productive mobile data collection capability and a 3D point cloud workflow for a wide range of users."
The Trimble MX2 is available now through Trimble’s global network of geospatial distribution partners.
