Trimble Adds Smartphone App to MyTopo Terrain Navigator Pro Software

New iPhone and Android Apps Allow Professionals to Collect and Sync Data between Field and Office

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today the Terrain Navigator Pro app for iPhone and Android, which serves a professional market, including search and rescue teams, law enforcement, foresters, surveyors, the oil and gas industry, and land managers. This mobile app allows professionals to collect markers, tracks and geo-stamp photos in the field, and then sync all the GPS data into the Terrain Navigator Pro (TNP) office software. 

The announcement was made at Trimble Dimensions 2012.

"The TNP app provides a simple solution for professionals to collect and seamlessly transmit data from the field to the office using a smartphone instead of a consumer GPS device," said Kevin Toohill, general manager of MyTopo, a Trimble Company. "This mobile app is ideal for entry-level GIS applications not previously addressed by Trimble products. These users may not require high-precision for every field project and they can migrate to our professional-level data collectors at any time."

Using the GPS built into smartphones, professionals can collect field data in areas without a cellular or data signal. As soon as professionals return to a WiFi® or data connection like a 3G network, they can share information in real-time with the office. In addition, topographic, aerial and street maps can be downloaded onto the phone for offline use and data display. Other app features include: compass and geo-information such as latitude/longitude, elevation and direction.

"The ability to share field collected data real-time with colleagues using Terrain Navigator Pro software can help facilitate accurate, on-the-spot, decision-making between field and office colleagues, reducing workflow and increasing efficiency for the entire team," said Toohill.

About Terrain Navigator Pro

The TNP software provides access to an easily catalogued collection of USGS/US Forest Service topographic maps, including 1:24,000 (7.5 minute series), 1:100,000 and 1:250,000 scale as well as seamless, 1-meter resolution color aerial photos dating back to 2003, and up to the most recent National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) aerial imagery available. The software supports GIS and CAD export and import, and provides access to advanced mapping tools, including:  range rings by time and distance, area fills and line-of-sight height offsets, geo-pins, geo-tips, Public Land Survey System (PLSS), advanced address search, up-to-date street data, and more. 

How to Buy

Terrain Navigator Pro office software is $299 per state. The new mobile app is a free download and only accessible to TNP users with a licensed copy of the 9.2 software. For more information about TNP apps and map software, go to:  www.mytopo.com/tnp.

Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong.
