TerraGo Edge Releases

TerraGo Edge 4.2 Release Notes

  • Filter By Cluster: The new cluster filtering functionality gives users the ability to select a group of notes on a map that share a single location, and see each one in a list data view.When selecting a note cluster that contains notes that have the same or very similar location, the app will automatically filter out other notes not in the cluster.
  • New, Improved GeoPDF Import: When opening or importing GeoPDF files, the processing now happens directly on the device. With this new functionality, users can now import GeoPDF files in offline environments with no internet connection.

TerraGo Edge 3.9.7 Release Notes

New Features:

  • Trimble® GNSS Integration: TerraGo Edge now comes with direct, out-of-the-box support for Trimble’s industry-leading, high accuracy surveying solutions including the Trimble R10, R8, R2 and R1 GNSS receivers, providing a range of flexible options for achieving sub-meter to centimeter accuracies on smartphones and tablets. As an approved Trimble development partner, TerraGo has integrated Trimble’s GNSS Direct SDK on both iOS and Android for professionals who need to collect field data in a variety of precision applications. Learn how to pair a Trimble GNSS device with TerraGo Edge in this KB article.
  • GeoPackage Raster Data: TerraGo Edge further extends its support of the Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC®) GeoPackage by enabling the direct, on-mobile-device import of a raster map and vector features from a single OGC GeoPackage. Just access the GeoPackage on your mobile device running the TerraGo Edge mobile app, then “Open In” Edge and a notebook with notes, form templates and an offline map will be created automatically. GeoPackage is an open, standards-based, application-independent, portable, interoperable and self-describing geospatial data container that enables sharing across platforms and mobile devices. Learn how to import a Raster GeoPackage in this KB article.
  • Minor enhancements, bug fixes and performance improvements

TerraGo Edge 3.9.6 Release Notes

New Features:

  • Automate note names with custom form fields:
    Now you can configure the advanced one-click QuickNote! workflow feature, per notebook, to default the note name to the entry of a specific form template field so that the note is easily distinguishable based on your specific field data collection projects and requirements. Learn how in this KB Article.
  • Attach maps and forms to multiple notebooks simultaneously:
    Speed up your field project preparation efforts or your data management activities by using this new feature, which will allow you to select an individual offline map or form template, and easily and quickly attach them to many notebooks at the same time by simply selecting the desired notebooks from a list. Learn how in this KB Article.
  • Import multiple GeoPDF’s and GeoTIFF’s simultaneously:
    You have always able to support your offline map requirements for your field data collection projects by running the GeoPDF/GeoTIFF import process in parallel, but now you will be able to select from your file manager or drag & drop many GeoPDFs and/or GeoTIFFs at the same time for that same parallel processing. Learn how in this KB Article.
  • New media filenames to help associate media to projects:
    We have updated the media (pictures, videos and audio files) filename process to now include notebook name, note name, and a time and date stamp, so when you export your critical field data, you will now be able to easily identify and relate your media files to your organization's projects and features.
  • New tools to support ArcGIS and enterprise integration:
    ArcGIS® and enterprise integration is now easier than ever using the TerraGo Edge REST API with the addition of sample code for every Edge REST endpoint provided to you via the very popular Postman API utility, which will bring you a significant level of efficiency while integrating and maintaining your systems with Edge.
  • Minor enhancements, bug fixes and performance improvements.

TerraGo Edge 3.9.5 Release Notes

New Features:

Measurement Tool

This powerful new tool allows users to measure and save distances, perimeters and areas for all types of map features, including:

1. the distance of a single line segment,

2. each segment of a multi-line segment,

3. the total distance of a multi-line segment,

4. the perimeter of a polygon, and

5. the area of a polygon.

The measurement tool is fully configurable per user and per device. You can select:

1. to turn measurement display on and off,

2. which specific measurements to display,

3. the unit of measure for display, and

4. the measurement type - static or dynamic.

And it doesn’t end there; these measurements are permanently stored with each Edge Note. So, they are available for all users to view and export. The measurement tool is available on all Edge platforms including Web, iOS and Android.

Required Form Field Management
This new required field setting allows you select the treatment and user options for required fields. The setting is configurable per form and provides three enforcement options including:

1. No Warning or Restriction: Display a blue asterisk/required tag on each required field, but no action required by the user if the fields are not completed correctly;

2. Warning and Allowed to Save: Display a blue asterisk/required tag on each required field, plus an alert message pop-up when tapping “done” that warns the user and lists of all the required fields that are not completed, but permits the user to “go-back” to finish or “continue” to save;

3. Restriction and Not Allowed to Save: Display a blue asterisk/required tag on each required field, plus an alert message pop-up when tapping “done” that warns the user and lists of all the required fields that are not completed, but forces them to “go-back” to finish and will not allow them to save the Form until they have completed all of the required fields.

Also, whenever a user “goes back” to a form to complete the required fields, Edge will “zoom” them to the first required field that is incomplete.

GeoPackage Raster Data Support
The existing GeoPackage import capability in Edge Web, which currently imports the vector features as Edge Notes, has been expanded to also include the import of the raster layers from the GeoPackage. Importing creates an offline basemap in Edge, which in turn can be shared with any mobile Edge user to support offline data collection in the field.

Updated Online and Offline Maps
The default, free online basemap sources in Edge now include OpenStreetMap Standard, Cycle, Transport and Humanitarian; Stamen Terrain, Toner and Watercolor; CartoDB Positron and Dark Matter; and USGS Topo, ImageryOnly, ImageryTopo, Hydro-NHD and Hill Shade. Offline maps can be created from the Stamen, CartoDB and USGS map sources.

Minor enhancements, bug fixes and performance improvements.
