Trimble SiteVision System Overview

Trimble® SiteVision™ is a high accuracy augmented reality system that is ideal for use outdoors. It enables you to interact with your spatial data in the context of the real world. You can visualize and measure positions using GNSS and Augmented Reality technology as you explore the project site.

The SiteVision app is supported on a number of Trimble devices powered by the Windows 10 operating system connected to a Trimble GNSS receiver, and on BYO devices powered by the Android™ operating system version 9.0 and later. This guide covers using the system on Trimble devices powered by the Windows 10 operating system.

The SiteVision system is an integrated positioning solution that works with GNSS and a device's camera. It requires:

  • the SiteVision app running on one of the following Trimble devices, powered by the Windows 10 operating system:
    • Trimble TSC7 controller / Trimble Ranger® 7 data collector / Spectra® Geospatial Ranger 7 data collector
    • Trimble T7 tablet / Trimble Yuma® 7 tablet computer
  • one of the following Trimble GNSS receivers, with tilt sensor technology, connected to the device via Bluetooth® technology:
    • Trimble R12i GNSS receiver
    • Trimble SPS986 GNSS Smart Antenna

To begin to use the system you will need a model that you want to visualize. The SiteVision system supports a wide range of model types including models of houses, commercial buildings, road designs, site designs, landscape plans, and utility services. It also supports the visualization of 2D data from GIS systems.

The models can be created with a range of Trimble applications or many third party packages such as AutoCAD and ArcGIS.
