Trimble® TerraFlex™ Application

Managing Data Collection for Everyday Geospatial Projects

Trimble® TerraFlex™ Application

The Trimble® TerraFlex™ application helps mapping and GIS professionals manage data collection more efficiently.

With TerraFlex, you can deploy a common workflow for your field crews to collect assets and information on their preferred mobile device, and then store all information in the cloud for easy access by team members, both in the field and back in the office, in real-time.

Key Features

The Trimble TerraFlex application is the mobile component of the Trimble TerraFlex cloud subscription-based solution for mobile geospatial data collection. The solution comprises mobile and cloud components that allow you to collect, process, and manage your data.

Benefits of the Trimble TerraFlex Cloud include the following:

  • Eliminates the use of paper and streamlines workflows when using consumer-grade GPS devices.
  • Eliminates duplication of field and office data entry.
  • Enables simultaneous collection and inspection of an asset in a single step.
  • Provides a dynamic form/template creator that has a range of common field data collection attributes.
  • Provides the ability to tag photos to data collection.
  • Eliminates data transfer bottlenecks with automatic field-office syncing.

Key features of Trimble TerraFlex Mobile include the following:

  • Provides easy-to-use forms for data collection or asset inspection.
  • Enables automatic field-office syncing, allowing field teams to pick up updated forms sent from the office.
  • Sends updates on field team activities immediately to office.

How It Works

Trimble TerraFlex supports iOS, Android, WEHH and selected tablet devices running Windows. Field workers can work with their choice of device, from their personal phone to a high-accuracy handheld, and collect data in the same way. When accuracy is important, connect to the Trimble® R1 or R2 GNSS receiver and receive high-accuracy positioning data straight to your mobile device.

Field data is automatically synced with a central server, streamlining office operations and driving higher productivity and cost savings. Data collection can continue while in remote areas, and the data will be automatically synced with the server when back in range.

TerraFlex integrates with your Esri® geodatabase to streamline field data collection for greater productivity and efficiency. With the TerraFlex add-in for ArcMap®, you can create projects straight from your Esri geodatabase and download collected data directly back into it. There are no import and export processes to manage, meaning higher data quality and greater productivity.
