Trimble® TerraFlex™ is a flexible app that helps mapping & GIS professionals across many industries and applications to manage data collection more efficiently. With TerraFlex you can deploy a common workflow for your field crews to collect assets and information easily on their preferred mobile device, and store all information in the cloud for easy access by team members, both in the field and back in the office, in real-time.
Know how you're collecting, who is collecting, and with what device; and find out how reliable your data is. To obtain metadata on a project, drag over an Auto field within the Form Template Editor and select the information that best suits your needs. This example shows two Auto fields which include information about who collected the form and what accuracy was obtained.
Use background maps in remote areas with no cell or Wi-Fi coverage by building an offline map cache to take with you. Generate map caches using the Locations function or in the process of creating a Task and check the box labeled 'Automatically create background map cache for this task'.
To do this, navigate to the Locations tab on the left navigation bar. At the bottom of the Locations list, select 'Create.' Click the map to determine the boundaries of your new location. Double-click to end the drawing then edit the properties of the Location by giving it a name, display color, and map cache (optional), then click the checkmark at the bottom of the right panel to save.
If a filter is applied when sorting data based on a user's criteria, now the map view will also display the filtered result. Navigate to the filter tab at the top of the screen and select/deselect using the yellow indicators. The data in the map will reflect the filters selected.
To do this, download and install the Data Uploader from the TerraFlex Desktop Data Manager module, sign in with your TerraFlex credentials, navigate to your GIS data or Trimble Business Center files, check the boxes and click 'Upload'. Support for the Data Uploader includes .vce, .kml, .shp, and TGO project files. These files will appear under the Data Catalog Files tab within the TerraFlex Desktop application.
This can be done either through the in-app subscription or via your local authorized Trimble dealer. Navigate to the Subscriptions tab under the Organization, select the subscription you wish to purchase, add the intended number of licenses and proceed to checkout.
