Trimble GNSS Receiver Support for ArcGIS Field Maps

Announced in June 2020, ArcGIS Field Maps is Esri’s newest maps app on iOS and Android devices.

Field Maps will combine the following capabilities into a single simple app:

  • Map viewing and markup
  • High accuracy field data collection and inspection
  • Location tracking
  • Work planning and task management
  • Turn-by-turn navigation

Trimble is working closely with the Esri field operations apps team to ensure full support for Trimble’s family of GNSS receivers including Trimble R series and Trimble Catalyst GNSS systems. 

The first public ArcGIS Field Maps Beta (available from July) supports Trimble GNSS solutions right away. Stay tuned for when the next public Beta release becomes available from Esri, which will expand to include support for Trimble GNSS solutions on iOS.

Built with GNSS: A Busy Port's First GIS

Port NOLA, in New Orleans, Louisiana, is one the world’s busiest ports; it sits at the nexus of a large continental network of rail, rivers and inland waterways. The recent acquisition of a rail system underscored the need to develop the port’s first enterprise GIS. Port NOLA began a pilot to verify existing asset records and capture features missing from existing datasets. The mapping campaign utilized high-precision GNSS rovers paired with mobile tablets running GIS asset inventory software.

Efficient Asset Management for Small Town Utilities

For many small towns and cities, budgets are tight for operating and maintaining public utilities. By sharing resources for common activities, a city can improve cost efficiency in its gas, steam, electric, water and sanitary and storm sewer services. In southern Minnesota, the city of New Ulm has modernized its approach to utility asset location and identification management. The effort is reducing costs and improving service for its 13,000 residents.
