View our video where we demonstrate searching, downloading and importing NGS control coordinates using Trimble Business Center’s Internet Download Routine.
In our previous blog article, we introduced the Trimble Installation Manager (TIM) utility and described how it can be a valuable tool for updating firmware and instrument licenses, downloading release notes, and more.
In this blog article we’ll be looking at the Trimble Installation Manager utility, and how this easy-to-use free program can help you install software and keep your instruments running at their peak. It will also keep you informed of the latest version information, download release notes, install new feature licenses, and more!
If you work in an industry like construction, engineering or land surveying, where accurate and precise measuring is essential to project quality, you need a reliable way to take measurements and ensure level structures.
And on a busy job site or time-sensitive project, when spending time fiddling with fussy equipment could mean the difference between making your clients happy with an on-time completion or having to explain why you’re pushing out the timeline, you need tools that are fast and easy to use. According to a 2016 McKinsey article, for instance, the average construction project goes 20 months over its original schedule, so you need all the tools you can muster to save time where you can.
Are you a Trimble Access user? If so, have you ever wanted to check settings or procedures on your Trimble Access data collector, but were prevented from doing so because an instrument was not readily available?
Surveyors, are you spending a lot of field time on repetitive tasks when performing topographic surveys?
In construction, engineering and many other industries, it’s essential to have a way to validate the accuracy of measuring and surveying data. Even minuscule inaccuracies can lead to flaws, project delays, higher costs and unhappy clients — design errors in construction, for example, can increase costs by around 7%.
Surveyors… Do you use the National Geodetic Survey’s “OPUS” service for post processing data? Did you know Trimble Business Center can streamline this and help avoid file conversion hassles, antenna height errors, and other possible issues? This month’s video shows how to use TBC for sending GNSS data files to the free NGS “OPUS” service for post processing.
In our previous video tip, we showed how TBC’s “Processing Services” routine can be used to easily send Trimble GNSS raw static data files to the National Geodetic Survey’s “OPUS” service for post-processing. In this installment, we’ll show how a processed OPUS result can be conveniently imported straight from your email back into TBC, then be used to refine the coordinates of an RTK survey originally performed using an autonomous “here” base position!
