Tri-Global Technologies Announces Underground Utility Mapping for Android Devices

SAN ANTONIO, Texas, 6 October 2011 – Tri-Global Technologies LLC, the leading developer of underground utility infrastructure mapping solutions, today introduced Tri-Global UtiliDroid™ for Android smartphones. UtiliDroid allows field technicians equipped with portable Android devices to easily document utility mark-outs.

Tri-Global developed UtiliDroid with integrated spatial technologies that enable Bluetooth connectivity with third-party electromagnetic utility locators so the user can record critical utility-locate information documenting the depth of the asset, its geographic location and time/date of the mapping.  Wireless Google KML/KMZ data transmission can be established between office and field, allowing managers to view field mapping progress within the Google Earth or Google Maps environment.

“We created UtiliDroid to fill a gap in our professional grade Mobile Utility Suite software for documentation-grade users who require a low-cost entry-level product on an easily deployed and cost-effective platform,” said Mike Bellrose, Managing Partner of Tri-Global Technologies. 

UtiliDroid users can expect typical documentation-grade accuracy from smartphone devices of around +/- 10 meters. 

Bellrose added, “We expect this latest toolset to allow our users an entry point for digitally documenting their utility locate projects and a clean path for expanding their desired spatial accuracies as far as they wish to go within our software.”  

Tri-Global expects the commercial release of UtiliDroid in late 2011, however, prerelease licensing is available now. 

UtiliDroid development coincides with the release of Tri-Global’s Mobile Utility Suite version 5.1 ( MobileStaker, UtiliMapper, SiteMapper and Inspection) with full support for the new Trimble® GeoExplorer™ 6000 series GPS receiver for mapping with sub-meter and decimeter accuracy. It also integrates with utility line locators from 3M Dynatel, Radiodetection, and Vivax-Metrotech as well as RFID Electronic Marking System locators from 3M Dynatel. Mobile Utility Suite 5.1 is available today. Contact Tri-Global at 706-410-2372.
