Trimble Software Helps With Drainage Plan

New Trimble software helps you set up a drainage plan using data collected from other Trimble GPS field tools.

EZ-Surface software works with the Autoslope feature of Trimble’s AgGPS FieldLevel II system, which runs on the FmX integrated display. The desktop software allows farmers and drainage contractors to analyze fields surveyed with FieldLevel II by viewing 3D field models, watershed maps, contours, surface flow paths, and waterflow directions. From this analysis, the user can easily determine the most appropriate and efficient locations for surface ditches or farm tile drainage lines. These lines can be drawn on the map taking into account the field topography and real world obstacles by viewing them over a Google Maps image.

Once the EZ-Surface software is synchronized with the FmX integrated display, farmers and drainage contractors can use the Autoslope feature to create efficient farm tile drainage networks or surface ditches.

With EZ-Sync solution, you can wirelessly deliver completed drainage designs to the FmX integrated display via Trimble’s Connected Farm solutions.

With EZ-Sync from Trimble, you can wirelessly transfer information such as planned and completed jobs, guidance lines, soil sampling and scouting maps, application maps, and variable rate prescription maps from office to implement and back. The EZ-Sync solution is compatible with Trimble handheld devices with wireless capability, such as the Trimble Juno SC or Trimble Nomad 800XC. Both field-ready devices use EZ-Office Mobile.

From the tractor, sprayer or combine cab, EZ-Sync also works for transferring data wirelessly to or from the Trimble AgGPS FmX
