The latest version of Carlson Survey offers the added bonus of contouring, volumes and basic profile entry and drafting.

Carlson Software is pleased to announce the release of Carlson Survey 2006. The latest version of Carlson Survey offers tremendous value, being a complete survey solution with the added bonus of contouring, volumes and basic profile entry and drafting. The new Carlson Survey 2006 is fully compatible with AutoCAD 2004, 2005 and 2006 drawings.

New features include annotation overlap avoidance, a lot file inspector that shows lot data in real-time as you move inside lot perimeters, new level note and total station raw data processing options with more flexible reporting and graphics, a quick profile command with real-time drag and update, and a complete project archive and recall command for saving all project files in one zip file. There are more annotation options, more polyline utilities (eg. remove duplicate polylines, erase by closed polyline, inside or out), more data file conversions and more contouring and DTM options than ever, including 50% faster triangulation. Contour labels can mask underlying screen entities for crisper drafting. Double-clicking points on screen now launches the Edit Point Attributes command. Line by Angle and Distance has been added. The new 2D Align routine can quickly re-scale and rotate a drawing in one step without impacting elevations. The expanded 3D Viewer Window feature includes an image inspector which reports elevations of highlighted entities. And you can Save to AutoCAD R14 drawing file to write out to "legacy" formats.

Carlson Survey 2006 offers a seamless link with Carlson SurvCE, sharing data files, field-to-finish formats and COGO procedures, and including Geoid 2003 support. The add-on SurvNet Network Least Squares program now covers level loops, GPS and total station raw data . Carlson Survey 2006 is the perfect "stand-alone" survey solution for your survey business, requiring no external CAD. Its complete data collection feature sets and ability to work native in both SurvCADD and Autodesk Land Desktop point file formats, including use of LDT "description keys", make it a perfect survey foundation package for civil engineering firms as well.
