Trimble SX10 in Action

The more time that Survey Solutions Scotland spend with the new Trimble SX10 the more they realise that the Trimble SX10 can change fundamentally how a survey can be approached. Without needing to make any decisions in the office before the surveyor has seen the site, the surveyor can go to site with one instrument and make the decision on site which points are surveyed with the detail pole, which points are surveyed reflectorlessly and what data is scanned. The decision on when to scan can be driven by the need for greater accuracy, higher resolution, safety concerns or that scanning can be much faster than convertional survey. This finally gives survey professionals the ultimate flexibility in the field and added to the this, the ultimate in documentation with the built-in panoramic photography that can be added to the scanning.

We are blessed in Scotland with having some beautiful rural areas that require surveying and SSS recently did a demo with a customer that showcased some of the amazing capabilies of the Trimble SX10. The requirement was a survey of an area roughly 1km by 1.5km and tied into Ordnance Survey grid.


Screenshot from Trimble Business Center shows scanned points up to 800m away overlayed with imaging. Only scan points from this one set up are shown.

Normally this would have been done with GNSS or Robotic and due to the rugged nature of the terrain it would have taken several days.

DTM created from scanned point data. Area shown roughly 1.5km by 1km. Total scan time 35 minutes.

With the Trimble SX10 we did a total of five set-ups and scanned at ranges of up to 900m from the SX10 and surveyed the entire site from these set-ups. Each scan took under 9 minutes.

The entire area was surveyed in under 1/2 day including getting access and putting control stations in!
