You get world-renowned technical support, and training from Bench Marks experienced technical staff. On top of all that, you will also be purchasing the most capable and up to date survey package on the market today, supported by Carlson’s continuous upgrade process. Never worry about compatibility issues between your field survey software and your office software again with a Carlson software package.

Carlson Survey Software

You collect your data using the proprietary survey software provided by your survey equipment manufacturer. You then export that data in different file formats to a third-party CAD program, hoping that nothing gets lost along the way. But what happens when you replace your survey equipment? If you decide to go with a different manufacturer, your previous software license is useless, and your data collector may be useless as well. That’s where Carlson Survey software comes in; an intuitive, capable and cross-platform surveying solution.

Carlson SurvCE is currently on Version 5, with numerous improvements over the previous versions of survey software aimed at making your Survey process faster and easier. Sketch right into your map from the field, easily code features, experience improved performance on capacitive touch screens, and import text from your drawings, among many other improvements. In addition, many of the features that have been added now allow you to accomplish in the field what you would have had to wait for the office to do. Experience increased productivity and ease of use with Carlson SurvCE.

Carlson SurvCE and Carlson SurvPC are available in several different survey packages, allowing you to tailor your purchase to your individual needs. The total station module and the GPS module can be purchased as stand-alone licenses, or you can have a complete survey software solution by purchasing them as a package at a reduced price. The Carlson Robotic Total Station module can be added to the total station module, or as part of a complete package. The advanced roading survey software can be added to any of the above configurations.

Field to Finish

Once you’ve collected your data with Carlson SurvCE, you can easily import it into Carlson Survey or Carlson Civil suite; a comprehensive survey software package which includes Carlson Survey, Carlson Civil, Carlson Hydrology, and Carlson GIS, and which runs in either Autocad or IntelliCAD, depending on version. With a few keystrokes, take your field data, and convert it into a three-dimensional image. You can then use Carlson software’s easy to use tools: defining roads in 2d and 3d with the click of a button, or building an entire subdivision of lots on minimal data by defining a few attributes. Quickly generate plans or drawings for the project you are working on. This data can then be exported in the data format for almost any machine control package. With Carlson Survey or Civil suite, you get the complete survey software package. Supports LandXML and many other specific data conversions.

Do I need Carlson SurvCE or another Data Collection Software?

Having a good data collection package for your survey equipment is critical for survey success. Without a reliable, fully featured data collection software like SurvCE, you will not have the necessary confidence in your survey data. Carlson SurvCE is a multi-platform data collection software that can be used with most GNSS or Survey Equipment on the market today, giving it an advantage over other data collection software which is typically brand specific.

Where can I buy Carlson SurvCE?
