In this blog article, you can watch a video lesson on how to perform a site calibration using local coordinates in Trimble Access.
This month’s blog includes 10 short videos illustrating some common setup and configuration tasks for the brand-new TSC5 Trimble data collector. This is particularly exciting for us at Allen as the TSC5 is positioned to succeed the venerable TSC3, which has long established itself as a tireless workhorse for many surveying, engineering, and construction companies.
This blog article is about a valuable resource every Trimble Business Center user should know about.
It’s called the “TBC Resources PDF Presentation.” At first glance, you may not realize the full value if you don’t dig down a bit. Make no mistake, this is a treasure chest packed with a bounty of information.
Most Trimble Access users know that there are a variety of specialized report templates built into the Access “Export” options. Examples include Survey, Stakeout and Volume Computation Report among many others.
But did you know you can add more to this list?
In last month’s blog, we discussed “Using the TSC7’s Onboard Camera in Trimble Access.” This month, we’ll transfer our field data and photos to the office PC, then explore how to import and view the media files within Trimble Business Center.
Though often overlooked, most Trimble data collectors have the built-in ability to take quality photographs in the field. This can be extremely valuable for documenting survey data, saving time and increasing productivity by reducing the need for elaborate field notes and descriptions.
In this installment, we will look at how to use the onboard camera in the TSC7 data collector. We’ll also see how these photos can be linked to field measurements made using Trimble Access. In a future post, we will go over how the photos can be imported and viewed in a TBC project, and even included in special exports and deliverables such as Google Earth KMZ files.

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.
