Carlson SurvPC Provides Land Surveyors with a Seamless GIS Work Environment

SAN DIEGO , Calif.,U.S.A., Esri/ACSM Survey Summit (July 8, 2011) – Carlson SurvPC data collection software has recently been updated to enable the land surveyor to work in the GIS environment.

Carlson SurvPC, like Carlson’s popular SurvCE software, is a complete data collection system for Real Time Kinematic (RTK) GPS and Total Stations with in-field coordinate geometry. Because SurvPC can be utilized on standard Windows PC computers such as ruggedized laptops, this means that surveyors can access Esri® or other GIS source data in the field.

“This new capability of SurvPC enables surveyors to work in the ArcGIS® system, yet with the interface they are familiar with,” says Bruce Carlson, president of Carlson Software. “This means there will be no need to spend any time learning new software before taking this out in the field and collecting data.”

In the new ArcGIS-enabled version of Carlson SurvPC, Esri’s Desktop can be used intuitively to perform all survey functions; ArcGIS points, lines and polygons can be used for staking. ArcGIS Nodes can be used for resections and localization; and users will be able to query GIS feature attributes at any time with the Store Points, Stake Points, and Map View screens.

Surveyors will also be able to access years’ worth of projects and have that data saved to an Esri geodatabase with no import/export or translations issues since this new SurvPC uses the same CRD data file format for storing data. All data can then be seen in context.

Carlson offers this updated SurvPC on its own or it can be purchased as a package with the Carlson Supervisor, a small, light, fast, rugged field and Windows7-compatible tablet PC designed for land surveying and site management.

“And, in the works for those accustomed to working in the Esri-GIS environment is incorporating your familiar commands and terminology into SurvPC,” adds Carlson. “This means that centimeter-accurate data collection will become the norm in GIS with all who work in that environment able to seamlessly move from one environment to the other.”
