As a GIS professional, gathering the data around your organization’s field assets is critical to your decision-making process. You need to know the right location and information about the features you are responsible for—whether those are transportation assets, utilities infrastructure, environmental conditions, or many other things. This means a system of mapping, collecting, and monitoring your data is essential to efficient operations, regardless of what devices you are using or where you are located.

In this webinar you will:


  • Learn how you can achieve increased accuracy in a wide variety of working conditions on range of consumer and professional field devices.
  • Find out how you can optimize your accuracy and field collection processes with the new enhancements in Trimble® TerraFlex™ software and the Trimble R1 GNSS receiver.
  • See live demonstration of TerraFlex and the Trimble R1, comparing the performance of the built-in GPS receiver of a smart device with that of the Trimble R1, and what it means to your data collection.

As a utility worker, collecting consistent and reliable data when carrying out asset inspections is vital. Problems, such as poor quality data due to error-prone pen and paper notes, inconsistent data capture among field crews, and delays between analyzing issues in the field and sending that information back to the office can hinder efficient decision-making in time critical situations.


Discover how Trimble® TerraFlex™ software—the flexible and configurable cross-platform solution for reliable and accurate data collection—can provide your utility organization with a seamless and intuitive inspection process that can be easily built and adopted for your complete workflow and business process.

In this webinar, you will:


  • Be introduced to the fundamentals of the TerraFlex data collection and inspection process from setting up a new project from scratch to integrating with your back end systems
  • Get an overview of Trimble's Electric Utilities Asset Inspection Initiative and see a live TerraFlex demonstration of electric utility pole inspections
  • Learn how integrating TerraFlex into your workflows can solve obstacles that utility organizations typically face when performing utility inspections
