New Version of Trimble GPSNet Software Adds Features for Network RTK Surveying
SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 14, 2005 -- Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) today introduced a new version of its GPSNet™ software, which is designed to connect multiple Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers in a reference station network. The Trimble GPSNet version 2.4 software package is ideal for a range of positioning applications including surveying, engineering, construction and GIS data collection. The enhanced version offers a variety of new features that bring additional functionality and reliability to GPS network operators.
As part of Trimble's scalable infrastructure solution, GPSNet software expands the geographic territory covered and enables a single administrator to operate an unlimited number of reference stations and rover receivers in a network. Using GPSNet software, system administrators can establish and control a network of fixed reference stations to provide RTK corrections or postprocessed data for their area of operation-whether it is a city, county, state or country. Fixed reference station networks are typically continuously available and eliminate the need to set up a temporary base station for each project-saving users time and money.
Trimble's GPSNet 2.4 software is available now through Trimble's Engineering and Construction Division dealer network.
