What is Trimble SiteVision?

SiteVision is a high accuracy augmented reality system being developed by Trimble®.

It uses Trimble’s Catalyst softGNSS receiver, combined with Google ARCore technology, to produce a handheld high accuracy outdoor augmented reality system.

SiteVision enables users and clients to easily understand information such as new designs, existing underground services, and how future landscapes will look over time, without the need to interpret drawings or maps. See the information in true life scale, in the context of existing surroundings.

The information is presented in an easily understandable augmented reality view, which can be reviewed from any angle or position on site.

Trimble SiteVision offers the following benefits:


Client Engagement

Simplify explaining to clients by letting them see proposed designs, in situ using augmented reality. Allow the clients to walk around the proposed design and understand the details from different viewing angles in the context of the site. Share and discuss proposed design and design changes.


How will my planned road affect the surrounding environment? Use SiteVision to visualize design, the cut and fill values and how it will affect the surrounding environment.


What is the progress of construction on site? Use SiteVision to visualize work planned, undertake inspections and work completed on a “Stakeless Site.”

Subsurface Utilities

Where is the existing infrastructure that I can’t see? Use SiteVision to utilize sub surface mapping information to visualize the location, size and attributes of underground infrastructure such as water, power, gas and telecommunications.

Electrical Utilities

View the visual impact of proposed designs. SiteVision allows you to provide better context on proposed changes during the public consultation phase, improving public understanding. Communicate with contractors the intended outcome and logistics associated with the construction phase.

Cadastral Boundaries

How can I communicate land rights and restrictions? Use SiteVision as a tool to visualize cadastral boundaries, identify survey monuments, plan surveys and communicate complicated land rights and restrictions.


What will new construction look like against existing? Use SiteVision to visualize above ground structures and infrastructure such as intersections, bridges, tunnels and buildings.

Real Estate Development

Communicate the design on site with city and regional authorities to speed up the planning approval. Show potential buyers what the future site will look like, as well as views from individual lots. Show proposed house designs on site.

Landscape Architecture

How will my design fit the existing environment? Use Sitevision to visualize landscape designs and features in an existing environment.

Early Experience

Trimble's goal with the SiteVision Early Experience Program is to engage with users early in the development process to provide:

  1. Users with hands-on exposure to an augmented reality application so they can understand the value to their business in typical use cases and environments
  2. Trimble with feedback on the benefits and areas for improvement to make this an even better tool for the user’s business.

The Early Experience Program is currently at capacity. However, we still want to hear from you!

Please register your interest via this form so we can keep you up to date on the program.
