TerraFlex and Esri
Direct Esri Integration
Integrate directly with your Esri® geodatabase to streamline field data collection for greater productivity and efficiency.
Work From Your Esri Environment
The TerraFlex add-in for ArcMap® enables you to create projects straight from your Esri geodatabase and download collected data directly back into it. There are no import and export processes to manage, meaning higher data quality and greater productivity.
Compatible with Your Geodatabase
The TerraFlex add-in works with both File and Enterprise geodatabases, and supports features such as versioning, geometric networks, sub-types, attachments and domains. Tables can also be used to create templates for non-spatial data collection and update.
Simplify Project Set-Up
From the TerraFlex add-in you can publish templates for data collection in TerraFlex using the fields defined in your GIS. If you need to update existing GIS data, simply select the features and send them straight to the field using TerraFlex tasks. Once the data has been collected, download it directly into your GIS with a simple button click.
The Power of Trimble Positions on the Desktop
TerraFlex and Esri workflows can be extended further by using Trimble Positions Desktop in the office (as an upgrade to the TerraFlex Desktop add-in). If you prefer to synchronize your data directly to and from your Esri on-premise infrastructure without using the cloud, you can use the offline data transfer workflow between TerraFlex and Trimble Positions Desktop. Create projects and templates for your data collection activities from within Esri ArcGIS Desktop and transfer them to the field. Once you've collected your data transfer it back to the office, perform post-processing, and update features directly to your geodatabase.
Trimble Positions Desktop can also be used to post-process data collected in the TerraFlex cloud workflow (through Trimble Connect). During project creation and publishing, there are additional options for enabling post-processing as a source of accuracy. TerraFlex automatically collects the necessary data and synchronizes it to the cloud where it will be available for download into Trimble Positions Desktop. Once in Trimble Positions Desktop, collected sessions can be post-processed and detailed feature-based QA/QC can be performed prior to updating the geodatabase. In this workflow, individual forms will still synchronize to Trimble Connect as they are collected so that progress can be monitored in near real-time.
