Expanding VRS Now Coverage in Europe for Geospatial and Construction Professionals
Sunnyvale, Calif., June 26, 2017—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today the availability of its Trimble® VRS Now™ Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) correction service in France. The service is ideal for a variety of geospatial and construction applications including surveying, cadastral, land administration, and urban and rural construction that would benefit from easy access to high-accuracy, centimeter-level positioning.
Trimble also recently announced Galileo support for its VRS Now correction service. Powered by the Trimble Pivot™ Platform, VRS Now in Europe fully supports GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, QZSS and now, Galileo satellite systems. Galileo support improves network performance and reliability with access to additional satellites, particularly in urban canyons or other harsh environments. The increased number of visible satellites provides additional data observations that enhance positioning integrity to better mitigate errors.
