Trimble Dimensions 2006—Building Your Connected Site
The connected site—changing the way work is done. Steven W. Berglund, president and CEO of Trimble, will discuss his vision of the connected site—where the application of advanced positioning and information technology plays a pivotal role in improving accuracy and productivity in all phases of the construction process from initial survey, to planning and design, through site preparation and into the building phase. Using technology-enabled tools, engineers, surveyors and construction professionals can change the face of their industries and how work is done.
Looking for cosmic neighbors with the help of technology. Dr. Jill Tarter, director of the Center for SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Research at the SETI Institute, was the real-life model for Jodie Fosters character in the movie Contact based on Carl Sagans book. Dr. Tarter will take an in-depth look at the SETI Institutes attempts to find habitable worlds by finding evidence of the inhabitants technology using the Allen Telescope Array (ATA) —and the role Trimble GPS plays in the endeavor.
The theme of Trimble Dimensions 2006—Building Your Connected Site—emphasizes how process integration and intelligent positioning technologies enable surveying, engineering and construction professionals to reduce rework, utilize assets more efficiently, accelerate design updates as well as improve the bidding, planning and billing cycles. With more than 125 sessions and 10 specialty tracks planned, the conference will focus on increasing productivity in the field and in the office.
Attendees of Trimble Dimensions 2006 will:
The conference will also include a Partners Pavilion that will showcase the complete suite of Trimble construction, survey, engineering and infrastructure solutions, including products from Tripod Data Systems (TDS), Applanix, Pacific Crest, Apache and Quantm.
