Trimble Puts More Spatial Data in the Hands of Geospatial Professionals with its New InSphere Data Marketplace

“As the latest addition to the InSphere platform of applications, the Data Marketplace service plays an important role in our cloud-based geospatial information management platform. InSphere’s Data Marketplace is designed to help our customers find, manage and use spatial data critical to their business,” said Alain Samaha, business area director of software for Trimble’s Geospatial Division. “Giving our customers access to multiple layers of spatial information makes end deliverables more robust for their clients.”
The Trimble InSphere Data Marketplace is a new application that is part of Trimble InSphere, a cloud-based platform of software, data, and services focused on the needs of Geospatial professionals including surveyors, engineers and GIS professionals. InSphere’s easy-to-use Web interface provides access to other productivity-enhancing applications such as Trimble InSphere Data Manager, Trimble InSphere Equipment Manager, Trimble TerraFlex™ and Trimble Access™ Services.
The latest release also adds new capabilities and enhancements to the applications within the InSphere platform:  

Trimble TerraFlex – Unified Geospatial Data Collection and Simplified Digital Forms

The TerraFlex application includes productivity enhancement features that enable a tighter integration for Esri’s ArcMap plugin and allow GIS users to bring in data directly from TerraFlex into an ArcMap project. The module includes Esri basemap support for access to a range of freely available Esri basemap layers, new export options for more flexibility for portable data formats,    exchange, and full Windows 7 and 8 support on TerraFlex Mobile. This enables users a broader range of devices to select and use in the field for collecting asset information data. In addition, the TerraFlex user interface is now integrated into the Trimble InSphere platform, giving users a seamless experience between TerraFlex and other InSphere modules. A 30 day free trial is available online at:

InSphere Data Manager – Geospatial Information in One Place

Data Manager now supports Trimble Business center version 3.2 files, increasing support for more data file formats that a user is able to upload and view within the module. A 90 day free trial is available online at:

InSphere Equipment Manager – Centrally Manage Equipment

The release expands the compatibility to add and manage more devices faster and easier. Users can now import a list of devices from an Excel spreadsheet to immediately begin managing devices in the module. In addition, Equipment Manager now supports Trimble Access Software version 2013.40 (and higher), increasing the number of devices that a user can manage. A 90-day free trial is available online at:


The Trimble InSphere applications and Data Marketplace service are available now online at and through Trimble’s worldwide geospatial distribution network. For access to more detailed information, visit:
