As the number one office solution for surveyors in the U.S., the latest release of Carlson Survey, continues its development of survey features based on customer requests. The versatile and popular surveying software solution works like a surveyor thinks.
Carlson Survey is designed for use for land surveying. It provides a full toolkit for surveyors with everything from network least squares to surface modelling. Users get the ability to work seamlessly between the office and the field and they can establish company-wide design styles to ease and speed their work.

  • Carlson Cloud: Transfer files and messages to SurvCE users in the field
  • Geodetic Mapping: Calcs for geodetic angles, distances and areas
  • Annotative Text/Points: Auto resize for drawing scale.
  • Lock Points: Lock selected points in the coordinate database to prevent modifications
  • Field-to-Finish: New pipe network feature coding
  • Google Earth: Added export for text, images and surfaces and import for points with photos

  • Data Collection Interfaces: Upload and download to popular data collectors
  • Traverse Adjustment: Spreadsheet editor for raw data with graphics and processing for traverse adjustments.
  • SurvNET: Advanced network least-squares for total station, GPS and level data
  • Field-to-Finish: Draw points with styles and in point groups set by point descriptions and draw linework by several flexible methods.
  • Field-to-Finish Inspector: Inspect all field-to-finish elements, see description source and re-draw based on descriptions edits
  • COGO: Streamlined inverse, traverse, sideshot, intersections, interpolation, translate, rotate, scale and align
  • Coordinate Transformations: Transform coordinates and screen entities between lat/lon and grid projections as well as local to local by Helmert and least-squares methods
  • Deeds: Enter deed by description, read deed data from deed file, deed reports, deed correlation and generate legal description from drawing
  • Cut Sheets: Create custom cut sheet reports with reference grades and station-offsets
  • Build Surfaces: By triangulation or rectangular grids
  • Contouring: One step triangulate and contour from 3D entities as well as contouring from surface files
  • Surface Manager: Change surface display properties and adjust surface functions to add and remove points and break lines and swap edges
  • Volumes: Earthwork volumes between triangulation or grid surfaces
  • Pad Design: Tie cut/fill slopes from pad perimeter to surface, build pad surface, calculate and balance volumes, and edit pad parameters
  • Design and Edit Centrelines: Design or input alignments on screen or in dialog with graphics
  • Label Stations and Offsets: Annotate station and offsets along centreline and at selected points
  • Calculate Offsets: Reports stations and offsets for selected points along centreline
  • Create Offset Points: Create points at specified stations and offsets
  • Spirals: Flexible handling of the most complex spiral curves including “spiral-only” elements going arc-spiral-arc, arc-spiral-line and line-spiral-line
  • Create Profiles: From surfaces, screen entities, points on centreline, etc.
  • Quick Profile: One step profile creation with real-time update while adjusting centreline
  • Input-Edit Profiles: Enter profile data in dual spreadsheet and graphic window, and design in reference to controlling profile grade points
  • Draw Profiles: Draws profiles on grids or plan-profile sheets with auto-updating based on edits
  • Profiles To 3D: Create points and 3D polylines from profiles
  • Import/Export: User-defined import and export of point data along with conversions with specific other formats
  • Draw Points: Draw points with settings for symbols, layers and styles
  • Point Groups: Point group manager to define sets of point by filters
  • Coordinate File History: Tracks all changes to points with report and undo functions
  • Fix Point Label Overlaps: Finds point label overlaps with rule options to fix automatically
  • Point Tools: Utilities for modifying point labels such as move with leader, twist and resize
  • Label Areas: Customized area label styles and several methods to select areas to label
  • Size Areas: Sliding side area, hinged area, area radial from curve and bearing area cutoff
  • Lot Network: Commands for subdividing a site into lot and ROW areas. Dynamically updates areas for any changes to boundaries. Includes ability to label linework and areas and to draw setback boundaries
  • Lot Manager: Lot definitions by point numbers with functions to create lots, conduct map check for closure, edit in spreadsheet with graphics, report lots and draw lots
  • Offsets, Intersection and Cul-de-Sacs: Layout for ROW and EOP linework
  • Angle & Distance Labels: Flexible routines to label linework in all possible layout combinations plus available rules to automatically fix label overlaps and revise labels when entities move
  • Curve Labels: Label curve data in stack, along arc or in table
  • Survey Text: Routines to create typical plat labels such as offset and building dimensions
  • Linetypes: Draw special linetypes
  • GIS Data: Input, edit, query, report, label and inspect database data attached to drawing entities
  • ESRI: Import/Export feature data by Esri MSC or SHP
  • Geo-Referenced Images: Place geo-referenced images into the drawing
  • Place Camera Symbol/Image: Draw a camera symbol with an attached image
  • Coordinate Systems: 100s of projections including SurvCE

Great survey software

Carlson Survey knows a surveyor's needs for Field to Finish, Deed description and legal description writer, COGO and they make it all very easy to use. It has the full menu for those who used to C&G software before, but also has its own menu to control, and support survey points. The GIS menu intergrate ARCGIS shape files to and geo-image into AutoCAD. Carlson also has an option to export lineworks to Google Earth.
The support is also top rate. They reply to email ticket within 24 hours, and any problem after that they reply really fast.
The Centerline and Lot Layout of Carlson Survey relies heavy on Polyline, not points. These can be hard to manage if you change point coordinates, everything doesn’t update to the points. Luckily there is still the CG menus, which handles that through separate point group file.
The program has all you need to solve survey problems outside and inside office, and more. If you know CG or AutoCAD Land Survey then it is very easy to learn.
