    9. 9. What is TrimPix Pro?TheTrimbleTrimPix Pro system provides thetools to take high-resolution photos with adigital camera and wirelessly transfer them inreal-time to aTrimbleWindows Mobilehandheld for seamless integration into yourfield data collection workflow.
    10. 10. Trimble TrimPix Pro SystemComponents Solution consists of Eye-Fi Pro card andTrimPix Pro software Works with most cameras on the market withan SDHC slot Connects camera to supportedTrimble handheldusingWi-FiPOPN
    11. 11. TrimPix Pro Works with multiple cameramanufacturers
    12. 12. Trimble TrimPix Pro SystemComponents Works seamlessly with the following supportedMapping & GIS field computers GeoExplorer®2008 series handhelds GeoXH™ handheld GeoXT™ handheld GeoXM™ handheld Juno™ series handhelds Juno SC handheld Juno SB handheld Juno SD handheld Nomad®G series handhelds
    13. 13. Steps to integrating TrimPix Pro intoyour collection using TerraSync Create a data dictionary with a File Nameattribute Transfer Data Dictionary to Mobile Device Create data file with transferred data dictionary Take photo, collect point, select photo asattribute Transfer data to Pathfinder Office Export as shp file Open in ESRI’s ArcGIS
    14. 14. Steps to integrating photosusing ArcPad Create a feature that has a text field longenough to support a photo path Check data out to ArcPad Take photo, collect point, select photo asattribute Transfer data back to ArcGIS Check data in, select the proper path namewhere photos will be stored
    15. 15. Demonstration
    16. 16. Data Dictionary Creation Photos are stored in File Name Attributes
    17. 17. Steps to Transfer a datadictionary to your device Open GPS Pathfinder Office Select or Create a project, then open the project Create a data dictionary using the Data Dictionary Editor Connect the GPS device to your computer via MicrosoftActiveSync (XP) orWindows Mobile Device Center (VistaorWindows 7)(The computer must have the software installed prior toconnecting your device) Open the DataTransfer utility (Utilities  DataTransfer) Transfer the data dictionary
    18. 18. Steps to linking a photo to afeature – Step 1 Create a data file with your data dictionarythat contains the photo file attribute
    19. 19. Steps to linking a photo to feature–Step 2 Select feature to collect
    20. 20. Steps to linking a photo to feature–Step 3 Take photo with your camera that containsthe Eye-Fi card/TrimPix ProThis assumes you have set up TrimPix prior to photo collection
    21. 21. Steps to linking a photo tofeature –Step 4 Select the pre-defined folder whereTrimPixPro is transferring the photos to
    22. 22. Steps to linking a photo tofeature –Step 5 Select photo from dropdown. A thumbnailshould be visible.
    23. 23. Transfer data to PathfinderOffice When the data file is transferred, the photosautomatically transfer. The photos are stored in an auto generatedfolder in the GPS project
    24. 24. Export data to a shapefile Use the Export Utility to export data to ashapefile
    25. 25. Tips and Tricks for PhotoMaintenance Photo path names are stored as a hyperlink.The path name is the location of the GPSprojectdata file name~files image name. Moving photos to a server or different folderbreaks the hyperlink.Example of photo path:C:PfdataPIT0410R100615A~files10062010_3181.jpg
