US: Trimble has released latest version of its deformation monitoring software — Trimble 4D Control version 4.3. The latest software version features new optional monitoring applications — the High Rise App, the SeismoGeodetic App and the Trimble 4D Control Site Setup App for Trimble Access — to analyse complex data communicated from a broad range of GNSS, optical, geotechnical, seismic, atmospheric and metrological sensors. In addition apps also provide new functionality for data processing, visualisation and analysis.
The High Rise App is intended to monitor high rise structures during construction using GNSS and inclination sensors. Integrated processing of GNSS, total station and inclination data delivers precise coordinates on demand for stake-out jobs on structures subject to tilt such as towers and high rise buildings.
SeismoGeodetic App integrates the advantages of high precision GNSS data and high frequency strong motion data. The data from co-located GNSS receivers and Trimble REF TEK strong motion accelerometers can now be processed in an integrated approach resulting in high precision 3D positions up to a sample rate of 500 Hz. The Trimble 4D Control Site Setup App for Trimble Access field software allows the user to create, enhance or modify a total station site setup for Trimble 4D Control using a Trimble field controller. Once the site setup has been transferred to Trimble 4D Control, round measurements can be performed immediately without the need to run the Site Setup functionality on the server.
