Trimble Geo XT 6000 Series GeoExplorer Geographic Data Collector

Trimble Geo XT 6000 Series

GeoExplorer Geo XT 6000 Series
The Trimble® GeoExplorer® 6000 series takes GNSS productivity to a
whole new level. Combining submeter accuracy GNSS, high quality photo
capture, wireless Internet, and connectivity options in a single
product, the GeoXT™ handheld is the ideal field device for
organizations mapping critical assets and infrastructure, or for anyone
needing dependable submeter accuracy GNSS data, simple operation, and
repeatable results.

Together with the latest field software enhancements and GNSS
innovations—including Trimble Floodlight™ satellite shadow reduction
technology—the GeoXT handheld is the ideal submeter field solution for
any industry, including utility companies, local government
organizations, and federal agencies.

Reliable submeter performance
Integrating the latest in Trimble GNSS receiver technology, with the
optional ability to track both GPS and GLONASS satellites, the GeoXT
handheld delivers consistent submeter accuracy in real time and 50 cm
accuracy after postprocessing.

For submeter accuracy, the GeoXT handheld’s integrated SBAS receiver
can be used to obtain real time corrections such as WAAS, EGNOS, or
MSAS, or the GeoXT handheld’s built-in Bluetooth® wireless technology
can be used to seamlessly connect to a Trimble GeoBeacon™ receiver.

For 50 cm accuracy, data collected with Trimble field software can be
postprocessed using the Trimble GPS Pathfinder® Office software or GPS
Analyst™ extension for Esri ArcGIS Desktop software. These office
processing suites use Trimble DeltaPhase™ technology to achieve 50 cm
accuracy for GNSS code measurements after postprocessing, and even
higher levels of postprocessed accuracy are possible if GNSS carrier
data is logged for extended periods.

Never-seen-before display performance
The GeoXT handheld includes a sunlight-optimized, display designed
specifically for outdoor operation. It maintains exceptional clarity in
all outdoor conditions, including direct sunlight. Text is crisp and
easy to read. Background maps and photos are rich and vibrant. At 4.2″
(10.7 cm), the display is also big, so the touch panel is spacious and
easy to control.

Work online, anywhere
Internet access in the field gives workers live access to the
information they need to make better decisions, faster. Once connected,
field workers can collaborate with their office and with each other,
even from remote locations.

The GeoXT handheld offers a choice of wireless technology to enable
Internet connections directly on the device—including an optional 3.5G
cellular modem built into the handheld itself, integrated Wi-Fi, or
Bluetooth wireless technology.

Whether connecting to corporate networks, or accessing web-based
services such as real-time map data or VRS™ corrections, accessing and
updating live information in the field is simple and fast.

Bluetooth technology also enables wireless connection to other external
devices such as Bluetooth-enabled laser range finders, barcode scanners
or RFID readers.

High quality photo capture
A photograph is often the best way to capture information about an
asset, event, or site. The GeoXT handheld includes a 5 megapixel
autofocus camera with geo-tagging capability. The camera can be
controlled by the TerraSync™ software and other third party
applications, so photo capture and linking of images to GIS features is
seamless and simple to integrate with existing data capture workflows.

Designed for work
The GeoExplorer 6000 series was designed with a single goal in
mind—delivering a high-accuracy handheld GNSS system that works faster,
longer, and in more places than any other.

The Lithium-Ion battery provides up to 8 hours of GNSS operation on a
single charge, and can be swapped on-the-go without shutting down the
device—enabling near-continuous operation and minimizing field worker

The GeoXT handheld is powered by a super-fast OMAP 3503 series
processor and 256 MB RAM. With 2 GB of internal storage and the
capacity to add an additional 32 GB via SDHC card, the GeoXT handheld
has the capacity and power you need to work with high resolution maps
and complex datasets.

The fully ruggedized IP65 construction is designed to withstand the
harshest environments. Wherever field workers go, they can take the
GeoXT handheld with the confidence that the equipment can handle the
toughest conditions.

These smart design features combine with unprecedented accuracy and
productivity to deliver the ultimate high performance handheld
field solution.
