NUREMBERG, Germany – Trimble introduced here at INTERGEO a new version of its terrestrial mobile mapping office software—Trimble Trident Analyst 4.7. The software is designed to effectively manage and interpret high-resolution digital images and large point clouds, and automatically extract features from Trimble’s MX Mobile Mapping and Survey systems. These capabilities allow land mobile data to be transformed into geospatial intelligence, according to Trimble.
Trident Analyst 4.7 software takes advantage of the additional random access memory offered by 64-bit operating systems to enable loading and handling of very large terrestrial mobile mapping datasets, including production-size point cloud data, according to a release. 64-bit processing allows Trident Analyst users to load, display, edit and analyze billions of points and thousands of high-resolution digital images quickly and effectively.
The latest version incorporates new quality control tools for efficient review of positional and orientation accuracy, and quick validation of boresight parameters and registration results using passive objects in the mapping environment. In addition, new 3D point cloud classification capabilities increase productivity and enhance usability throughout corridor mapping and survey workflows.
Trident Analyst is designed for robust object positioning, measurement, and data layer creation—ideal for the analysis of geo-referenced imagery and laser scanner data. Industry-leading functions can accelerate projects and increase productivity, including key automated processes such as surface modeling, roadway sign and pole detection, lane marking detection, edge and breakline detection, road geometry and clearance measurements.
“In combination, Trimble’s MX Mobile Mapping and Survey systems and Trident Analyst software provide a turnkey solution tailored to the needs of mapping and surveying organizations,” said Katherine Sandford, general manager of Trimble’s GeoSpatial Division, in a statement. “This offers a complete workflow—from data collection to processing and information creation—designed for compatibility and without third-party software repurposed from other application fields.”
The Trimble Trident Analyst software suite is bundled together with Trimble’s MX1, MX3 and MX8 sensors and will be available through Trimble’s land mobile mapping and survey distribution channel. Customers with a current maintenance contract will receive the upgrade at no additional cost.
