Sunnyvale, USA, 12 June 2007: Trimble has introduced field revision management and GIS redlining capabilities for its Trimble Fieldport software. Trimble Fieldport software is a Web-based, wireless software suite for utility field service management and location-based mobile mapping.
With the addition of a field revision management and mobile GIS redlining tool, workers can now use text and graphics to note field conditions that are different than those indicated on maps in the GIS. Comments are immediately available to other field crews accessing the GIS and the annotations are submitted electronically to those responsible for maintaining the mapping system.
The new features also include advanced workflow management capabilities. Now work orders can be generated automatically to streamline the process of repairing and maintaining field assets. The identity of the user submitting the change, time, date and other details are also tracked automatically.
