Traverse PC Inc. released TPC Desktop V8.5. The TPC Desktop series comes in three surveying editions: personal ($799), premium ($1,299) and professional ($1,799). TPC V8.5 builds on the No CAD Zone and Universal Map Sharing of previous versions. New features include: user-defined point symbols; italics, bold-italics, underlined, strike-through text; drag-n-drop panning; point code aliasing; one-button file sharing option; user-defined raw data import/export; word wrap options in views; color-coded cuts/fills for volumes; select COGO points from Quick View; and user-defined closed loop tolerance.

TPC V8.5 improves many existing features, offering 32 drawings per survey, better zoom retention, faster contours and volumes (10,000 points/sec), optional borders and toggle on/off break lines. V8.5 also features TDS RAW file support (for Rangers and Recons), stakeout report, DWG text placement and Point View sorts on any column. (Traverse PC, Florence, Ore.)
