The announcement was made today at INTERGEO 2011, the world's largest conference on geodesy, geoinformatics and land management.
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. 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. "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.
About Trimble's GeoSpatial Division
Trimble applies geospatial technologies to a variety of industry-specific workflows, enabling the seamless creation of geo-information from raw data. Trimble's land and aerial mobile sensors capture geo-referenced images and point clouds that are interpreted using Trimble's production-scale photogrammetry, terrain modeling and feature extraction software. The resulting high-fidelity models increase business productivity and improve decision-making for a diverse community of global customers, including aerial and land mapping service companies, governments, utilities and transportation.
