Sunnyvale, Calif., Sept. 4, 2019—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today its Trimble® TerraFlex™ field software now supports the transfer of data between the field and office without the use of Trimble cloud services. The new software workflow—called offline data transfer—is possible through the integration of Trimble TerraFlex and the Trimble Positions™ Desktop add-in for Esri® ArcGIS® Desktop. TerraFlex is a field solution that enables mobile workers to easily collect, manage and edit their geospatial feature data. The new workflow provides an alternative to using Trimble cloud services for storing and transferring GIS feature data collected with the TerraFlex platform. In addition, TerraFlex field data collected via this workflow using a Trimble Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver can be post-processed directly inside the Trimble Positions Desktop add-in for improved positional accuracy.
“With this new feature, TerraFlex fulfills the need of organizations such as government agencies and utility providers who cannot keep their data in the cloud because of regulatory constraints or business rules,” said Rachel Blair-Winker, business area manager for Trimble Mapping & GIS solutions. “By introducing the new workflow to our TerraFlex software platform, customers who prefer direct desktop methods of transferring data between field and office (such as USB) and need post-processing capabilities can now benefit using this new solution without having to change their current business practices.”
Trimble TerraFlex is available online at https://terraflex.trimble.com or through Trimble’s Authorized Geospatial distribution channel. The Mobile apps are available in Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play store. The Trimble Positions Desktop add-in is available through the Trimble Geospatial distribution channel. The new workflow functionality will require the latest version of both applications.
