It feels like it's software that is stuck in the 90s - but it does everything it needs to.

Pros: The functionality is pretty amazing - the ability to geolocate with that level of precision, to do these corrections that rapidly, to do it in the field with a laptop is insane. That being said, the actual handheld user experience on a GEOXT or whatever is mediocre at best. I mean, we use it every day for projects that we couldn't otherwise do - but only because it's the only option, not the best.

Cons: The user interface makes no sense, the terminology of 'background' vs 'data' files is silly and non-intuitive, using it to navigate in the field is hit-and-miss (I'd rather have a topo and a compass), and editing features is almost impossible.

Overall: It's literally the only software/hardware combo that can do what we need to do in a way that doesn't require backpack units and huge capital investments. It's amazingly powerful but implemented in a really dumb way.

Pros: The software that terraSync are essential tools for a field geolocation work, allowing the field operator to store all the data collected in a single computer that can later be downloaded to a computer in the easiest and most efficient way. They are high precision equipment for seismic surveys, georadar, topographic surveys, etc.

Cons: Trimble functional equipment perfectly in open areas free of vegetation which is a limitation for spaces with high density of vegetation, losing signal capture data.

Works for preparing, processing, and transferring GIS / GPS data.

Pros: Good interface for transferring data to my field units from desktop information. Very easy to choose multiple base station groups for post-processing, and combine shapefiles into single background files.

Cons: Sometimes it's necessary to change attributes of multiple features collected features before sending to the GIS department. This is often done by field staff, who may not have full GIS software on their computers. It would be nice to be able to access data by feature type in tabular form, rather than having to click on every feature in a rudimentary map to make changes.

Pros: The program allows basic GPS data capture functions in any place, with good satellite coverage. Another aspect that I like is that it allows transferring the captured data to other formats such as dxf, shp among others, to process that data in other programs.

Cons:

I do not like that it has a old fashioned user interface, and it is limiting in some options to do. I want to have more facilities to collect the data and make the necessary modifications, in the short time that I have in fieldwork

Overall: The benefits are being able to capture data gps quickly in a fieldwork. In addition to its compatibility with GIS software, which allows to facilitate certain work processes

I use TerraSync on a Trimble 6000 Series for wetland delineations. Very accurate equipment.

Pros: I like the abundance of features. Although I only use some of them, the ones I do use are very efficient.

Cons: Although I like the abundance of features, sometimes having too much can be confusing. I with there was one specifically designed around me field needs.

Pros: It is a software with many advantages since it has a good interface, in addition to the high precision of the data.

Cons: It is a software with a high cost, but it is worth investing since it gives excellent results in terms of accuracy and data quality.

Overall: Quality of the information collected in the field.
