1 Structural Engineer, 1 GNSS Receiver & Thousands of Saved Birds: A Gough Island Case Study

John Houston worked on a project for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) to mitigate a serious threat to Gough Island’s bird population. He used Trimble CenterPoint RTX, R10 and other Trimble products, to collect information on topography and soils for use in planning and design of temporary facilities on theIsland, which would be used during the mice eradication project.

Students Scan the Past to Preserve the Future

Researchers and students in France want to immortalize the work of New Zealand soldiers who during World War I connected a network of abandoned chalk quarries to create a passage for allied soldiers to move underground. The researchers used the Trimble TX8, TX5, and Trimble RealWorks to capture a permanent digital record of the tunnels.
