Trimble announced a new high-performance data collector for its Mapping and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) portfolio—the Trimble® TDC650 handheld. Built for GIS data collection, inspection and asset management activities, the TDC650 provides users a rugged solution with scalable high-accuracy Global Navigation SatelliteSystem (GNSS) positioning for professional field workflows.
The TDC650 is fully integrated with today’s demanding GIS data environment, powered by the Trimble Software Development Kit (SDK) that enables precision GNSS positioning for industry leading apps such as Esri® ArcGIS® Field Maps and Trimble TerraFlex™ software. The TDC650 is also a scalable solution that allows customers to choose their desired accuracy down to the centimeter-level to meet needs and budget requirements.
“This is an ideal tool for customers tasked with modernizing critical utilities including electric, gas and telecommunications networks,” said Gareth Gibson, marketing director, Trimble Mapping & GIS. “The precision, quality and data integration workflows needed to map the physical world to a digital one in these projects requires a modern data collection platform like the TDC650.”
City, state and local governments and utilities organizations will benefit from this solution, which is part of the larger Trimble Public Sector ecosystem that includes Cityworks software for stormwater inspections and Trimble Unity for monitoring municipal water pressure and hazards. As GIS data continues to grow more complex, Trimble becomes central to simplifying, visualizing and making sense of the data so customers can make better decisions in managing their communities' assets.
