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.

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.

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.
