Trimble SiteVision

Outdoor Augmented Reality System

The power of information, re-imagined.

Imagine if you could see things that are hidden or that don’t actually exist yet. With the Trimble® SiteVision™ outdoor augmented reality system you can. SiteVision brings geospatial data to life so you can easily visualise, explore and understand complex information with unrivaled accuracy, right from your mobile device.

Take a walk through your job site and visualise:

  • Conceptual designs, from buildings to roads, as they might appear in real life
  • What lies beneath the ground or resides inside walls, such as water pipes and electrical cabling

Provide real-world context to your designs:

  • Communicate complicated plans and drawings
  • Precisely identify where concealed assets are
  • Minimise costly errors and safety-related incidents

Simply upload your data, visualise and manipulate it in the field, and report back to the office – all through the Trimble Cloud.

Easy-to-use software brings data to life

3D models don’t belong in a 2D world

  • Works seamlessly with your existing workflows and data; supports Trimble, open industry standard, and third-party file types: Trimble Business Center, SketchUp, Tekla, Esri, AutoCAD. Full formats: SKP, VCL, TTM, TRB, IFC, LandXML, DWG, SHP, Geodatabase, and PNG.
  • Upload your data, visualise it in the field and report back to the office – all through Trimble Connect.


High-accuracy positioning and measurement in a single package

  • Integrated cm-accuracy GNSS with Trimble Catalyst
  • Integrated Electronic Distance Measurement (EDM)
  • Flexible design fits most phones (up to 8″ screens)
  • Waterproof and rugged
  • Works hand-held or pole-mounted

Visualise in 3D

Place and view georeferenced 3D models from any angle at true-to-life scale-above or below the ground


Take photos, measurements and notes in the field; create tasks and assign them to team members


Share, communicate, and collectively interact in real time with easy-to-understand visualisations


Measure positions using GNSS, Electronic Distance Measurement and AR to better understand your data on site


Easy-to-use software that brings your data to life

  • Automatically place models on site with cm accuracy
  • View fully textured, attribute rich, models in 3D
  • Visualise models in context with transparency and sectioning
  • View subsurface models with pit view
  • Measure and report with ease


Trimble SiteVision runs on mobile devices, smaller than 8″, supporting Google Play Services for AR and the Android™ Operating System Version 9.0.

Trimble Inc. has tested and verified Trimble SiteVision compatibility with the following Android mobile phones:

Note: Although Trimble Catalyst Service and Google Play Services for AR can run on a number of mobile devices, the requirements for SiteVision differ due to the combination of the processing requirements of Trimble Catalyst softGNSS Receiver, Google Play Services for AR, and data processing.

Trimble SiteVision is already at work in your industry

Client Engagement

Simplify explaining to clients by letting them see proposed designs, in situ using Augmented Reality. Allow the clients to walk around the proposed design and understand the details from different viewing angles in the context of the site. Share and discuss proposed design and design changes.


How will my planned road affect the surrounding environment? Use SiteVision to visualise design, the cut and fill values and how it will affect the surrounding environment.


What is the progress of construction on site? Use SiteVision to visualise work planned, undertake inspections and work completed on a ‘Stakeless Site’.

Subsurface Utilities

Where is the existing infrastructure that I can’t see? Use SiteVision to utilise sub surface mapping information to visualise the location, size and attributes of underground infrastructure such as water, power, gas and telecommunications.

Electrical Utilities

View the visual impact of proposed designs. SiteVision allows you to provide better context on proposed changes during the public consultation phase, improving public understanding. Communicate with contractors the intended outcome and logistics associated with the construction phase.

Cadastral Boundaries

How can I communicate land rights and restrictions? Use SiteVision as a tool to visualise cadastral boundaries, identify survey monuments, plan surveys and communicate complicated land rights and restrictions.


What will new construction look like against existing? Use SiteVision to visualise above ground structures and infrastructure such as intersections, bridges, tunnels and buildings.

Real Estate Development

Communicate the design on site with city and regional authorities to speed up the planning approval. Show potential buyers what the future site will look like, as well as views from individual lots. Show proposed house designs on site.

Landscape Architecture

How will my design fit the existing environment? Use SiteVision to visualise landscape designs and features in an existing environment.
