Will Trimble be obsoleting the .DC files from their data collectors?

Question asked by Bill Norman on Jan 10, 2017

I am a developer for a surveying company that uses Trimble equipment. I've been asked to write an app for PC to extract certain type of data from the files created by the data collector. I've been working with the .DC file because it's ASCII, but have been told by one of our project managers that Trimble will not be supporting that type of file in the future. I need to know (a) if this is correct, and (b) are there ASCII-based alternatives, or possibly a way to extract the data from the JOB file in an ASCII format.

 

Thanks!
