Trimble announces new TerraFlex software and cloud services

By on 25 June, 2013


Trimble has introduced a new software and services platform to manage data collection activities for geospatial projects, known as TerraFlex, which helps managers maintain control of the flow of geo-enabled field data.

Two components comprise the TerraFlex platform: cloud services and a mobile app. With an online data repository and a toolset for creating custom form templates, TerraFlex cloud services provide managers and team leaders with a centralised system to configure and manage the data collection process. In the field, the TerraFlex Mobile app provides a common interface for users of a range of common mobile and smart devices.

Regardless of the type of mobile device preferred—iOS, Android or Windows Mobile—the TerraFlex interface provides a consistent experience. For dedicated data collection activities, a user can choose a professional field device such as a Trimble Juno GPS handheld. For ad-hoc fieldwork, the user can also use a standard smartphone to access the same flexible form templates.

With the evolution of smartphones, more field workers now have access to basic positioning technologies and can contribute to the geospatial initiative. Trimble TerraFlex provides an intuitive interface for capturing data in the field, standardising workflows and streamlining integration of data with the office.

Regardless of whether mobile workers are using Trimble devices or smartphones, virtually everyone can be both a producer and consumer of geospatial data. All field data is captured via the cloud for integration into a GIS, database, or mapping application.

Trimble TerraFlex is available online now at: The Mobile apps are available in Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play store. TerraFlex is also available through Trimble’s authorised GIS and Survey distribution channels.
