SpectraPrecision Geodimeter System Tools (SP GST)

SpectraPrecision Geodimeter System Tools ( SP GST) is an application to upload, download and edit Geodimeter surveying data files. GST is useful with Geodimeter instruments and data only.

Geodimeter Software Tools 2.02 runs on Windows 95, 98, Me, NT 4 Service Pack 4, 2000 and XP. GeoTool is a variation of GST that can include GeoModel for digital terrain modelling.

The Geodimeter brand was purchased by SpectraPrecision which was then purchased by Trimble Navigation.

SP GST 2.02 superseded Geodimeter Software Tools 2.01 for Windows and Geodimeter Software Tools 1.0 for DOS. Trimble Terramodel and Trimble Data Transfer Utility (installed together) superseded Geodimeter GST 2.02, GeoTool and GeoModel.

Geodimeter Software Tools 2.02 can be installed by running \SPGST\setup.exe from these CDs:

  • SpectraPrecision Geodimeter Software Tools
  • SpectraPrecision Terramodel 9.7
  • Trimble Terramodel 9.8
  • Geocomp 10
  • Geocomp Systems September 2001

You can now also install GST 2.02, Trimble Terramodel 10.61 and Trimble Data Transfer Utility 1.56 from the Geocomp Systems Terramodel 10.61K installation .ISO which you can download. Mount the .ISO then install from the \Legacy\SPGST and \Trimble Data Transfer folders and install Terramodel from the \autorun.exe menu.

Check the unit settings after you install GST. For example, you might want to change the angle units from grads to DMS.

You may need to rename your data files including extensions. Windows Explorer by default hides file extensions so you may want to turn this feature off.

GST, Data Transfer Utility and Terramodel Field data module will run without a SpectraPrecision or Trimble Sentinel security key. If Terramodel detects such a key, any licenced modules on the key are enabled, in addition to Field data module. If GeoTool detects such a key, GeoModel runs instead, if licenced.

If you have installed both GST 2.02 and Terramodel 10.61K, you can also launch GST by typing GST at the Terramodel command line.

Contact us at Geocomp Systems for Terramodel licences and support, whether you have a Geodimeter or not.
