All over the world, local, regional and federal government agencies, utility companies, and natural resource organizations utilize Trimble's GPS/GIS solution to manage their geographically dispersed assets or resources.
The Trimble solution consists of a GPS-enabled, rugged handheld device that includes application software. Trimble's handheld units are the key tools used by field workers to collect and maintain field data. Increasingly, Trimble GIS solutions are also wirelessly enabled, allowing highly efficient exchange of data between the office and the field.
Growing cities face the challenge of keeping pace with utilities and other services for its residents. Until recently, new utility features such as manholes, storm drains and utility poles, had to be manually entered into computer databases, which are time-consuming and error-prone.
At the same time, accessing utility information in the field has been accomplished through paper map books that quickly become out of date. Trimble's wide variety of solutions can assist workers in mapping and recording data that is incorporated into an enterprise database accessible to all city departments.
For applications requiring higher accuracy (as in locating and relocating buried sewer pipes, gas pipelines and underground telecommunications cable), Trimble now offers a GPS/GIS receiver that delivers decimeter accuracy – the GeoExplorer 6000 Series, available from CompassTools.
Knowing precisely where assets are located is critical in the event of a natural or manmade disaster. Having information readily accessible and up to date will greatly aid in assessment, cleanup and rebuilding. Governments and utility companies around the world are using Trimble solutions to map all of their assets before disaster strikes.
