NEWS FLASH: Use ALL your Trimble® GPS devices on Android or iOS, with TerraGo Edge

February 2, 2016

By Mike Gundling

We spend a lot of time talking about the “next-generation” of GPS devices that work seamlessly with iOS and Android devices. But what about all the Trimble R8®, Geo7X®, TopCon® and other traditional GPS handhelds, rovers and receivers that our customers already have? Customers already bought these expensive devices and it’s hard to ignore a sunk investment or just sell them on eBay and cutover to new hardware in one fell swoop.

What’s a bug?

January 29, 2016

By George Demmy

It seems that a software bug should be pretty well defined, and for the most part it is. Rather than run afoul of some official definition, I’m just going to describe a bug as a condition in software that prevents it from acting in a manner that a skilled user might find reasonable. I’ve come to this seemingly convoluted definition after several customers reporting a “bug” in Publisher where the features that they write into the GeoPDF map “highlight wrong” when selected with Adobe Reader’s Object Data tool. Now, the content that Publisher wrote into the PDF content stream – the series of graphic operators that draw the feature on page – and all of the supporting metadata that make the Object Data tool work were perfectly valid and the features displayed properly. However, if you selected some features the highlighting would be all over the place and not look like the feature selected at all.

A Partnership that Delivers Results

January 27, 2016

TerraGo Edge is designed to be an open GPS solution and that means we believe our customers should be able to use TerraGo Edge for “any-meter” accuracy from 5 meters on an iPhone to real-time centimeter accuracy and everywhere in between.  And we want to make it so easy for our customers that it’s as simple as pairing via Bluetooth and BAM! your phone is a survey-grade GPS receiver. But there’s a lot of work in making things so simple for our customers and that’s where our partnership with Eos pays real dividends.
