The 6.7.16 operating system includes the following issue resolutions and functional enhancements:
•Adds sensor and laser rangefinder module support for the Geo 7X handheld with Trimble Access™ software configurations.
•Resolves an issue where the ability to manually switch between 2G and 3G modes was missing from the cellular configuration section of the operating system connection settings.
•Resolves an issue where the device may fail to resume correctly from a suspended state in the event that AC power is removed.
•Adds support for the SHA2 signature algorithm for CAPI2.
We would like to thank everyone who attended the 2015 MN Trimble User Group, and help make it a huge success! This was our biggest year yet, and we are very excited for 2016. All twelve of the track sessions were well attended, and we had great audience participation. We hope that you found it as a great opportunity to learn, ask questions and network with your peers. If you have any additional questions or comments, please send them to email@example.com. Thank you!

In this Tech Talk we demonstrate how to configure VRS real-time corrections in the GNSS Status Utility app for use with the Trimble R1 GNSS Receiver. With VRS corrections you will receive real-time, high accuracy GNSS positioning to use with any compatible data collection application.

First public demonstration of iSTAR and the ColourCloud Arena4D integration
NCTech, creators of the ground-breaking iSTAR® 360º panoramic digital imaging device, will be demonstrating three of their latest innovations at SPAR International. The UK company is back in Houston again with its latest developments, two of which will see their first public demonstration at the event.
Arena4D integration: The power of iSTAR and the ColourCloud processing engine has been integrated into the Arena4D software from Veesus Ltd. This is a major step forward, enabling scanner users easier access to HDR colorization without leaving the point cloud visualization environment. SPAR will be the first public demonstration of this integration, with the release expected over the next few weeks. Further joint developments between Veesus Ltd and NCTech are in the pipeline.
Point Clouds from iSTAR: In response to demand from iSTAR users asking if it is possible to extract measurement data from iSTAR images, NCTech has invested significant bench-time on this and will use SPAR International as the platform to reveal a preview of some of the initial (and very exciting) results.
ColourCloud: NCTech released the first full version of ColourCloud earlier this month and users are already providing very positive feedback.
It provides an incredible rapid, accurate and robust way to colorize laser scans with iSTAR HDR image data. The scan colorization process is fully automatic, only requiring users to point to where their scan and iSTAR data is saved and hit ‘go’. Combining ColourCloud software with iSTAR’s ability to capture HDR images in around 20 seconds means time saved both on the site and at the desk, with a significant improvement in overall quality.
The ColourCloud process provides fully automatic colorization which speeds up workflow rates, requires no stitching, resolves parallax issues and is precision calibrated to sub-pixel accuracy. The end result is full color HDR overlay from any laser scan to within +/-2 pixels.
