Integrated smartphone and GIS data collector

May 27th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

The Trimble TDC600 handheld is an ultra-rugged, all-in-one smartphone and GNSS data collector for GIS and field inspection applications. The next-generation smartphone data collector runs on Android 8.0, has a bright sunlight-readable 6-inch display, a powerful 2.2 GHz processor, 4 GB memory and an enhanced capacity all-day battery. Built for GIS users in organisations across a variety of industries, including environmental management, utilities and government agencies, the TDC600 handheld is a tool for communicating between the field and office. With WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1 and 4G LTE cellular connectivity that supports data and voice calls, field workers are able to use the device as they would any consumer smartphone. Users can make calls, send text messages and emails and access the internet, removing the need for multiple devices in the field. Constructed to military (MIL-STD-810G) specifications, the durable design absorbs drops and shocks, and works in harsh weather conditions, without the need for a protective case. The handheld integrates seamlessly with Trimble’s data collection applications (Trimble TerraFlex and Penmap) as well as third-party apps such as Esri Collector for ArcGIS.
