Trimble Adds Post-Processing Capability to CenterPoint RTX Positioning Services
LAS VEGAS, Nov.5, 2012—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today post-processing capability for the Trimble® CenterPoint™ RTX positioning service. Enabled by Trimble RTX™ technology, CenterPoint RTX provides centimeter level positions in real time via satellite L-band and IP/cellular. The new post-processing capability delivers better than one centimeter accuracy and is available worldwide.
The announcement was made at Trimble Dimensions 2012.
Trimble CenterPoint RTX post-processing is a cloud-based service accessed through www.TrimbleRTX.com, allowing users around the globe to upload static GNSS observation data and receive positioning corrections calculated in the well-defined ITRF 2008 reference frame. The post-processed solution can be transformed to a variety of regional reference frames by selecting a coordinate system and tectonic plate.
"With the introduction of post-processing capability to the CenterPoint RTX portfolio, we continue to extend the breadth of the service," said Patricia Boothe, general manager of Trimble's Positioning Services Division. "CenterPoint RTX post-processing gives geospatial professionals another tool for their toolbox, utilizing Trimble's globally available RTX technology to enable higher-accuracy positioning solutions."
The open service allows any user to post process 10 data sessions per month. To learn more, visit: www.TrimbleRTX.com.
