The Trimble Access Pipelines software is designed to simplify the process of collecting pipe attribute information before the pipeline is installed and to enable easy updating of these attributes when measuring welds and other features on the as-built pipeline. Pre‑recording all the attributes electronically reduces the stress and time pressure on the surveyor to survey the installed pipe as the trench is being backfilled. This enables the surveyor to focus on measuring points along the pipeline and checking the pre‑recorded attributes, rather than entering a lot of new attribute information.

In addition, the Pipelines software includes techniques to automate cover calculations, simplify the process of surveying and reporting on pipeline crossings, as well as other calculations such as deflection angle computations.
