We’re pleased to announce Trimble® TerraFlex™ software now enables customers to configure their data collection projects using regional or national coordinate systems. Coordinate systems are a fundamental part of a Geographic Information System (GIS), which allows users to accurately model the location of their assets in a digital environment. This update helps solve the common challenges of integrating Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) with GIS and provides confidence in the accuracy and quality of the data captured
Users can now configure TerraFlex projects to store and display data in a local coordinate system. Coordinate systems for USA, France, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand are supported in this initial release. Additional regional and national coordinate systems will be added regularly
Users can configure their TerraFlex projects with a local geoid, enabling them to store and display orthometric or mean sea-level heights
TerraFlex will utilize time-dependent transformations when transforming SBAS and RTX positions into local datums; this will provide users improved positional accuracy when capturing data
Users can enter navigation targets using global, local, or projected coordinates
To learn more about why coordinate systems are critical for ensuring the data you are capturing is accurate and how TerraFlex is helping to solve some of the common sources of errors related to coordinate systems, check out our Coordinate Systems in Trimble GIS Workflows Blog Series.
