The all new cEZ.NET is a complete data collection software package for use with total stations and digital levels. Prosurv cEZ.NET retains the icons that are familiar to current Prosurv cEZ users, and introduces menus for easy navigation to all the functionality that cEZ.NET has to offer.
Prosurv cEZ.NET has over 100 ProGO functions, extensive data collection functions including topo, traverse, automated cross sectioning, 3 point resection, radial stakeout, stake to line and curve in 3D, full feature codes and attributes support, quick codes, setup by point numbers or Bg/Az with line-only or shoot to backsight, and more.
ProGo functions include five types of intersections, translate & rotate, translate elevations, area and pre-determined area calculations, three compass rule adjustments, fit curve to two tangents, bearing & distance, angle & distance, seven curve point-creation functions, divide line, divide curve. Reports include inverse around, inverse from one point, station/offset, baseline offset, and vertical curves. NAD83 State Plane & UTM coordinate zones are also supported, with automatic scale factor computation.
Prosurv cEZ.NET has graphics capabilities that allow the user to plot points, draw lines and curves, and zoom in/out. The graphics screen can be viewed in the main menu or in the data collection menu. Shot points are plotted automatically in real-time on the graphics screen. cEZ.NET's Autodraw feature provides feature code based linework on-screen in real-time. cEZ.NET's graphics includes six Quick-Pick functions, such as inverse, create points, and edit points. Quick-Pick allows the user to tap points on the screen to perform various functions.
In addition to the dozens of powerful ProGO functions, Prosurv cEZ.NET also includes complete horizontal & vertical geometry entry and computation routines, called baselines. Users can create horizontal geometry by entering tangent bearings and distances and curve information. Points representing the geometry are created automatically. Vertical geometry is entered by PVI station and elevation, and is completely independent of the horizontal geometry. Vertical curves and asymmetrical vertical curves are allowed. Once the geometry is stored, users can compute dozens of horizontally and vertically offset points in seconds, or create offsets of the major points (PC, PT), or one point at a time (ie manhole with rim elevation). Ten baselines can be created per job.
Point functions include record by record viewing of points, or view a numeric point list. Users can edit and delete points, but the raw data can not be altered. Notes are stored automatically in the raw data when coordinate points are edited or deleted. Time stamps are recorded automatically upon each Setup. Points can be imported/exported directly within cEZ.NET. cEZ.NET supports exporting of raw data in 3 formats. Up to 2000 SETS of points (point lists) can be stored and recalled for inversing, stakeout, area calculations and much more.
A new pricing policy has been introduced with Prosurv cEZ.NET. The simplified pricing model offers all the functionality available in Prosurv cEZ.NET for one low price. The $299 list price has all the functions that previously had to be purchased as separate modules, including: Advanced ProGO, digital level support, and text reports. Advanced ProGO has functions such as spiral curves, least squares best fit line/curve, divide section, and create building.
A 30-day trial of Prosurv cEZ.NET is available.
