Join us at FIG Working Week 2023, Booth 609

May 28 - June 1, 2023 | Orlando, FL, USA


Trimble Applanix develops, sells, and supports stable, reliable, and repeatable GNSS-inertial solutions that enable mobile mapping from Air, Land, and Marine vehicles. They are easy to incorporate and designed to operate under the most difficult conditions and environments.
Come see Trimble Applanix’s powerful mobile mapping solutions for land and marine vehicles, and our Direct Georeferencing solutions designed for high-efficiency airborne mapping, including from UAVs. Plus, learn more about our industry-leading Applanix POSPac post-processing software with CenterPoint® RTX™ for centimeter-level accuracy without base stations, and POSPac LiDAR QC Tools for IMU boresight and trajectory adjustment in poor GNSS areas.

Join Our Sessions

We'll be at multiple FIG Working Week Sessions—ranging from multi-sensor HD mapping and post-processing, to a panel discussion on new FIG drone surveying standards. View the complete list to plan attending your favourite presentations before the show.

Enabling Geospatial Professionals to Conquer New Frontiers

Anna Jarvis | Product Manager, Trimble Applanix, Stephanie Michaud | Strategic Marketing Manager, Trimble

Democratization of positioning solutions has been a persistent goal within the Trimble Survey and Mapping sector, especially for addressing Land Administration needs of mapping cadastre and people’s relationship to the land, all while maintaining data integrity and quality. As the cost of commercially available imaging sensors (LiDARs, cameras, etc.) continues to decrease, so has the cost of mobile mapping systems that use them, meaning there is more geospatial data available than ever which can be harnessed to make faster, safer, and greener decisions. Accuracy of the geospatial data and its collection efficiency are of utmost importance, and without the proper tools challenges can arise, especially in dense urban environments. Join the Trimble and Applanix teams as we share the many ways in which we are protecting our world, while simultaneously striving to enable geospatial professionals to conquer new frontiers.

TRIMBLE PRESENTS: An Introduction to Trimble Applanix Solutions for Mobile Mapping and Aerial Survey

Welcome on a journey into the world of Direct Georeferencing and mobile mapping with Trimble Applanix. In this 30-minute video, we will explore the Trimble Applanix approach and cutting-edge technology that has revolutionized the way we map and understand our world. This journey includes a detailed discussion of what Applanix Direct Georeferencing is and why you should use it for your survey and mapping projects.

What We're Showing


APX Family of OEM Boards


Airborne Direct Georeferencing

Our GNSS-Inertial technology is designed to reduce the cost and improve the efficiency of aerial survey from all types of airborne vehicles by directly georeferencing each point of sensor data without GCPs (Ground Control Points) or flight line overlap. With Applanix DG, save time and money while achieving the highest level of accuracy.

Learn more about our Direct Georeferencing for UAV Applications & Direct Georeferencing for Aircraft Applications


Land Mobile Mapping

Accurately and efficiently track and monitor fleets, produce high-definition (HD) maps and 3D models, or act as a reference solution for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) testing, no matter the GNSS environment with Applanix solutions for land mobile mapping.
Learn more about our Land Mobile Mapping Solutions


Marine Mobile Mapping

Produce a robust and accurate full six-degrees-of-freedom Position and Orientation solution for your marine vessel and remote sensing equipment, by blending GNSS data with angular rate, acceleration data from an IMU, and heading from GPS Azimuth Measurement System (GAMS).
