Trimble Releases Next Generation of TerraSync GPS Data Collection Software

New Version of Market Leading Data Collection and Asset Management Software Adds Intelligent
Data Capture, User Interface Customization, and Improved Background Imagery Support


COLOGNE, Germany, Oct. 5, 2010 — Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today the release of its next generation of Trimble® TerraSync™ software, a market-leading data collection and asset management application. TerraSync software is deployed in utilities, public sector, natural resources, and many other organizations throughout the world as a key component of enterprise Geographic Information System (GIS) data collection and asset management projects. The latest release focuses on updates requested by users to better address their changing needs.

The announcement was made today at INTERGEO 2010, the world's largest conference on geodesy, geoinformatics and land management.

The key enhancements include:

  • Intelligent data capture based on conditional attributes. TerraSync software data capture forms now dynamically adapt to previously entered attribute values for maximum data collection efficiency. Examples include making a conditional attribute hidden or visible, read-only, or required.
  • Customizable user interface. To simplify the field user experience, a new TerraSync Studio utility allows a configurable user interface to be developed so unneeded sections of the interface can be made invisible.
  • Faster raster map display. Using aerial photos or satellite imagery is now more efficient with raster map background redraw up to 25 times faster than rendering in previous TerraSync software versions, making it possible to work with much larger images.

'Supporting the ongoing needs of our customers was a primary focus for this new version of TerraSync,' said Peter Large, general manager for Trimble's Mapping & GIS Division. "As organizations continue to develop high-accuracy GIS databases, they can rely on TerraSync software to support their GPS field data collection and asset management programs."

"With the enhancements in the new TerraSync software, we can expand the use of TerraSync to more field users throughout the organization," said Rob Bailey, GIS manager for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utilities. "Providing tailored user interfaces and guiding the data collection workflow with conditional attributes will expand the use of the application to a wider range of skill levels while preserving data integrity."

In conjunction with the TerraSync software, a new version of Trimble GPS Pathfinder® Office software is available which includes enhancements to the Data Dictionary Editor to support conditional attributes as well as the new TerraSync Studio utility to develop and test customized user interfaces.

Trimble TerraSync software is available from authorized Trimble resellers or from store.trimble.com.  For additional information about the new TerraSync software, visit
