Trimble Expands its Mobile Spatial Imaging Portfolio

Trimble Expands its Mobile Spatial Imaging Portfolio
Trimble introduced today the new Trimble MX2 mobile spatial
imaging data capture system. The MX2 extends the capabilities of
geospatial professionals, allowing them to safely and effectively
address complex projects by collecting spatial data from a mobile
scanning platform. The Trimble MX2 provides a versatile and
complimentary addition to Trimble's family of mobile data capture

Designed for mapping, surveying and engineering environments, the MX2 is rugged, lightweight and portable. It is also easily deployed and redeployed on
projects similar to conventional surveying equipment. A precise laser
scanner, along with an embedded Trimble-Applanix GNSS/Inertial
positioning system, allows geospatial professionals to create the point
cloud accuracies necessary for many spatial imaging projects.
Accompanied by Trimble Trident software to capture, process and analyze
point data, the MX2 offers a ready-to-use workflow for surveyors and
professionals in mapping, engineering, planning, oil and gas, utilities,
mining, environmental, public safety and more. The system is available
in single and dual-laser versions.

In conjunction with the MX2 system, Trimble also announced new features
for its Trident Software 6.0. The software developed for rapid
transformation of point clouds and imagery into geospatial intelligence
has been significantly enhanced to provide a scalable software suite for
a wide range of users. Additions include the incorporation of direct
trajectory import and the Trimble Coordinate System Manager. The Trimble
Trident software suite is ideal for the analysis of mobile laser
scanner data and geo-referenced imagery.

"The Trimble MX2 provides survey companies with the opportunity to enter the
world of mobile scanning at a time when it is becoming a desired
service within their solution portfolios," said Katherine Sandford,
general manager of Trimble's Imaging Division. "The MX2 offers a simple
and highly productive mobile data collection capability and a 3D point
cloud workflow for a wide range of users."

The Trimble MX2 is available now through Trimble's global network of
geospatial distribution partners.

About Trimble's Imaging Division
Trimble's Imaging Division provides solutions for the collection, processing and
analysis of geo-referenced images and point clouds. By combining aerial
and land-mobile sensor systems with digital photogrammetry, terrain
modelling, image analysis, change detection and feature extraction
office software, Trimble provides complete solutions for the
transformation of geospatial data into geospatial intelligence: a
process Trimble refers to as "images to information." The resulting
information solutions can increase productivity and improve
decision-making for Trimble's diverse community of global customers that
include survey, engineering and GIS service companies, governments,
utilities and transportation authorities. Trimble's Imaging solutions
are also complemented by precision measurement tools, mobile data
collection, wireless technologies, and software from Trimble's Survey
and GIS data collection portfolios to provide geospatial professionals
with comprehensive field and office solutions to plan, build, manage and
maintain both natural and man-made assets.
