Trimble GeoExplorer Review Preview
March 22nd, 2011 by Alex Mahrou
I just wanted to post a preview for my upcoming review of the GeoExplorer 6000 series. I’ve been a little busy lately with other work (go figure.) In my previous post, I outlined the history of the GeoExplorer Series, and promised an in-depth review.
I received my GeoExplorer last week from Seiler Instruments (Thanks Jay and Lanny!) and just finished my final test last Sunday 3/20/11. Here is what I’ve performed for my testing….
For all of my tests, I used VRSNow or the NGS Streaming Service. There is so much more to share. However I’ll just post a preview below of my Downtown Streaming test. Trimble had a dataset that they used in their GeoExplorer 6000 series webinar for downtown. I wanted to see just how repeatable this sort of data was. I used an external Zephyr Antenna (Provided by Frontier Precision) and VRS. Note: You will need the Google Earth Plugin to view the frame below. What you are seeing below has not been edited! Trying to pull off a polyline like this in the first pass can be a pain; that’s no longer the case with this reciever.
