Major Advancements in 3D Scanning Software Performance that Increase Productivity for Surveyors, Contractors, Engineers and Geospatial Professionals

Colorado Springs, Colo., April 16, 2013—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today Trimble® RealWorks® version 8.0 software that includes a new 3D database engine, automated targetless registration and Web viewing capability incorporating RealWorks' Scan Explorer interface. These new enhancements will allow surveyors, contractors, engineers and geospatial professionals to rapidly process 3D laser scanning data and expedite the creation of deliverables for their clients, increasing productivity and reducing costs.

The new 3D database engine in Trimble RealWorks version 8.0 will allow up to five times more data to be visualized and managed, compared to Trimble RealWorks version 7.2. The ability to handle larger data sets greatly increases usability and productivity for customers capturing data with 3D laser scanners such as the Trimble TX5 and Trimble FX.

The automated targetless registration function, together with additional workflow enhancements, will provide further productivity gains for customers. The automated targetless registration function automatically identifies planar objects in each scan and matches the planes from multiple stations, creating a combined data set. The function enhances productivity in the field by eliminating target placement prior to data capture in applicable environments. Office processing time is also reduced by the fully automated function.

Sharing of data with clients has been enhanced by the addition of a Publisher function within the Trimble RealWorks software that allows projects to be custom packaged for viewing via Microsoft® Internet Explorer. The Scan Explorer interface, embedded inside a HTML web page, allows clients to navigate and explore the scan data as well as take measurements and add notes.

“Software is an integral part of Trimble’s 3D laser scanning solutions and is essential to extract information from 3D data captured in the field,” said Tim Lemmon, marketing director of Trimble. “The new version of Trimble RealWorks software significantly improves our customers’ productivity in processing field data, extracting information and preparing deliverables for their clients.”

The announcement was made today at SPAR International 2013, the leading conference for 3D data capture, processing and delivery technologies.

Trimble RealWorks version 8.0 software is expected to be available through Trimble's worldwide survey and building distribution networks in June 2013.
