In Germany it is very common to hide Easter eggs and gifts for the children. To search for eggs and gifts makes a lot of fun, not only for the children. The eggs and gifts are hidden in the backyard or somewhere else outdoors. Sometimes it happens that not all eggs and gifts are found again.
This is where Penmap comes in.
Before you start to hide things, just pick up yourTrimble TDC150, equipped withPenmap. Capture the position and some attributes for each egg or gift you hide.
This is very easy withPenmap, especially if you have already adjusted your project template accordingly. It’s more or less a normal data collection, like you do in your daily work.
Ok, not only for one item, like in the video, but I am sure, you will manage also the others...
Now, everything is prepared for the kids, to start searching.
And Action - start searching now
Normally the kids start now to search for the eggs. They start walking through the backyard and try to find the eggs. This is funny. But they could have even more fun and you can also bring them closer to your daily work. You should give them a short introduction on how to do a stakeout with Penmap and the TDC150. This will give them the ability to find the eggs faster. Trust me they will like that.
This could look like this:
You can also train them to do a “line stakeout” or follow an “Easter bunny shape” via “Navigate Line” feature.
So do not hesitate and go straight to theTrimble dealerand prepare yourself for Easter next year. Get aPenmaptemplate for the first eggs for free.
Maybe you would like to say: To much overhead for some Easter eggs. You maybe right, but what I want to show with this short example is:
You are an expert in what you are doing. Think outside the box and find out what elsePenmapcan do for you, where you can get value of.
Happy thinking and a lot of fun for you and your kids. :-)
Have you ever thought about what Penmap can do for you outside the current path?
How to get more value out of Penmap?
Started with an idea
On the weekend I had to look at my orchards to pick up apples, pears and plums.
In recent years, I already wanted to know, how much fruits I have collected per time. In addition, it would be interesting to know, how many fruits a tree bears and to have a comparison to previous years.
As a Penmap developer, who has the app already installed on his Android phone (equipped also with Trimble Connect), I thought about how to get more value out of the app, during using it beside picking up my fruits from the ground.
A first preparation
First I had to prepare a Penmap template matching to my trees. I have apples, pears, walnuts, cherries and plums with different types.
