TerraGo Edge Overview


TerraGo Edge® is a mobile GPS field data collection solution that enables organizations to easily create and deploy custom mobile apps for collecting survey data with precision, and share field information across the enterprise in real-time. TerraGo Edge combines next-generation GPS, mapping, mobile forms and note-sharing features that turn user observations into actions, remote workers into sensors and place-based data into location intelligence. With TerraGo Edge, organizations create intelligent, portable notebooks customized for their unique areas of interest and specialized workflows.


TerraGo Edge lets you collect GPS data points at any accuracy level, whether you use the onboard GPS on your smart phone, or you want to attach a centimeter-level GPS receiver such as, Trimble® GNSS, to your mobile device. For any accuracy requirement, TerraGo Edge lets you capture data without sacrificing the latest features, mobile and cloud innovations, or being locked-in to proprietary technology.


TerraGo Edge is completely customizable for any industry, organization or workflow. For dynamic workflows, user observations can be quickly shared as photo, video or text notes. For situations where more structured data is required, TerraGo Edge provides industry-specific form templates and drag-and-drop custom smart form building so your field workers collect exactly what you need, when you need it.


TerraGo Edge allows users to instantly sync data and notes from the field, project teams and with home base for analysis. No more waiting days, weeks or even months for an update. When a connection is available, syncing will happen in real time and both administrators and field users will see updates as they work.


Edge is completely untethered from any platform and is completely independent of GIS or any other data source. You can leverage GIS, CAD, commercial maps and imagery, GeoPDF®, GeoTIFF or open source maps (like Google Maps, Bing, OpenStreetMap, etc.) and choose the right map for every job.
