Trimble has announced the first service available on its new Trimble Connect cloud-processing platform: Trimble Connect AutoUAS.
Trimble Connect is a collaboration ecosystem for architecture, engineering, construction and geospatial users. According to the company, the new AutoUAS service dramatically reduces the time required to process and geo-reference unmanned aircraft system (UAS) imagery.
Trimble says the AutoUAS service within the Trimble Connect cloud ecosystem enables customers to easily share processing results and seamlessly integrates UAS data into existing geospatial and construction workflows.
The solution, which takes an agnostic approach to UAS platform support, takes data to the cloud for rapid processing via an accelerated data-uploading tool. The service validates data quality before delivering highly accurate orthomosaic images, point clouds, elevation models and quality-control reports. Automation and scalability of cloud computing removes the need for continual manual guidance associated with traditional desktop processing, Trimble notes.
“As smart devices and the Internet of Things gain adoption and proliferate, it is imperative for organizations to have a data management strategy,” explains Jon Fingland, general manager of Trimble Connect. “Trimble Connect’s automated cloud processing allows users to turn data into information without significant manual intervention – which can increase efficiency and reduce rework.”
