Trimble Announces Updated Suite of Mapping and GIS Software
with New Postprocessing Engine
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 7, 2009 — Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today significant updates to its entire portfolio of Mapping & GIS field and office software products. These enhancements focus on improved Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) accuracy for data collection under a variety of conditions that deliver additional benefits to users of Trimble Mapping & GIS solutions. With the introduction of a new postprocessing engine, Trimble has further enhanced its powerful set of GNSS postprocessing tools, improving accuracy and consistency of data collected from all Trimble Mapping & GIS equipment, even in multipath and canopy environments. A key addition to the set of tools is Trimble® DeltaPhase™ technology, a revolutionary new technique for improving the accuracy of GNSS code measurements.
With Trimble DeltaPhase technology, results from receivers such as the GeoXT™ handheld and GPS Pathfinder® ProXT™ show 50 centimeter accuracy in good environments and improved yield under canopy and in multipath prone areas. Results are also significantly improved for the Juno™ series handhelds with postprocessed accuracy now in the 1 to 3 meter range.
