LIVERMORE, CA -June 16, 2008 – Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) new SurveyMaster software is a complete survey software solution to manage job site and surveying data efficiently, while providing a deliverable print or plot. Designed by surveyors, it provides the user with legal, annotation, adjustment and CAD drafting tools in one product.
The SurveyMaster program is contained on a single USB (Universal Serial Bus) key making it easily transportable from computer to computer.
“The SurveyMaster packaging is the first of its kind for this type of application as the program runs on the USB key,” says Scott Langbein, product marketing manager. “The user can move the program from computer to computer without the hassle of time-consuming installations and registrations because the entire program resides on the key. The data is saved on the key so the data can be moved from computer to computer.”
Langbein said, “SurveyMaster offers the user many options for office configurations. It can handle critical data efficiently and the application can be taken anywhere they need to go – ‘field-to-finish.’”
Job site information can be imported, viewed, edited and exported as needed allowing for area contour, surface file creation and editing and export to field controllers or machine control systems.
SurveyMaster is CAD-based software that can be synchronized with TopSURV 7 field controller software. SurveyMaster and TopSURV 7 synchronize automatically, making data upload and download truly seamless. Langbein said, “Ultimately what matters is the deliverable, and SurveyMaster makes printing and plotting very easy. There is no struggle to get your project printed or plotted.”
