Trimble Introduces Cloud-based Data Management

Trimble's SiteFID Gas Monitoring solution integrates positioning and mobile computing capabilities

Trimble introduced on Tuesday cloud-based data management for its SiteFID Gas Monitoring solution used in the environmental services market – the Trimble Connected Community – Environmental. The Connected Community - Environmental provides real-time management and deployment of SiteFID landfill gas surface monitoring data. It allows field monitoring data to be uploaded to the cloud and stored in a secure and replicated infrastructure designed specifically for positioning data. Environmental monitoring data can then be accessed in real time by other team members at locations with an Internet connection. The environmental data files are version controlled and updates to field data can be verified and tracked.

Trimble's SiteFID Gas Monitoring solution integrates positioning and mobile computing capabilities coupled with Flame Ionization Detection (FID) gas sensor technology, helping mobile workers to streamline their workflow as well as improve accuracy and compliance while on site. Field samples are recorded with GPS coordinates in real time during the landfill site survey, which can then be transferred from the Trimble SiteFID monitor software on the handheld to back-office compliance applications. The Connected Community – Environmental solution allows consultants and landfill operators to more efficiently manage, review and visualize landfill gas data.

The Connected Community – Environmental solution offers increased speed and efficiency for gathering, review and visualization of SiteFID monitoring data. The Visual Organizer functionality provides a unique way to rapidly plot georeferenced environmental data on Google Maps™ and site base maps for identifying exceedance points and deploying the data to project stakeholders. Multiple sites can be centrally managed and environmental data deployed to distributed locations providing increased project management capabilities.

"Trimble Connected Community - Environmental provides an innovative solution to manage environmental data that is more secure, defendable and accessible. In the past, field data was collected on site and returned to the office at the completion of the work, which was prone to lost or misplaced monitoring data," said Ken Fossey, portfolio manager of Trimble's Environmental Solutions Business. "Trimble has streamlined the SiteFID landfill gas surface monitoring work flow for data gathering, review and visualization while the field crews are still on site—cutting valuable time required to identify regulatory compliance exceedances and start corrective action."

The Trimble Connected Community – Environmental is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2012. For more information, contact Trimble Environmental sales at: [email protected].
