- Prosurv PC, a full-blown data collection package for your PC or laptop, was introduced in January, 2003.
Prosurv PC is not required if using Prosurv CE (both Prosurv CE and Prosurv PC are stand-alone packages).
However, the user can benefit from added functionality when using both products. Prosurv PC contains all the
functionality found in Prosurv CE, with several enhanced features. Functions unique to Prosurv PC are:
- Bring Job from Device. This routine copies a Prosurv CE job from your CE device, converts it to a Microsoft Access database file (the standard format for a Prosurv PC job file), and then opens the job in Prosurv PC automatically, all in one easy step. The connection to your CE device is accomplished “behind the scenes” using Microsoft ActiveSync, through your USB or Serial connection.
- Send Job to Device. This routine converts a Prosurv PC job to the Microsoft Pocket Access database format (the standard format for a Prosurv CE job file), and copies the job to your CE device in one easy step.
- Restore Raw Data from Backup file. In the case of a rare corrupted CE database file, Prosurv PC can restore your Prosurv CE Raw Data using the automated backup text file. Prosurv CE automati-cally writes to the backup file every time data is stored in the raw data file.
- Prosurv CE Version 3.7.3 and Prosurv PC Version 2.2.0 now include the following enhancements:
- Quick Pick Station Offset. Tap any two points on-screen to define a line, then each subsequent tapped point gives the station and offset to that point, based on the line. Tap the Clear button to re-define the line.
- Automatic Raw Data backup file (Prosurv CE only). In addition to storing raw data to the job’s database, Prosurv CE automatically stores a copy of the raw data to a simple sequential text file. This ensures that, even in the case of a rare corrupted database (job), your job data can be recovered, and field time has not been lost. Users can utilize the Restore Raw Data routine in Prosurv PC to easily re-create the job. The original raw data is restored verbatim from the backup file. Coordinates based on the raw data can then quickly be recomputed using the Re-Compute Raw Data routine. Prosurv CE users that don’t have Prosurv PC can e-mail the backup file to firstname.lastname@example.org, and receive the restored job within 24 hours at no charge.
- 3 SDMS Conversions. Separate Traverse, Topo, and Digital Level conversion routines convert Prosurv Raw Data into SDMS-compatible Raw Data. Special enhancements in Prosurv’s Digital Level and Close the Horizon Traverse routines allow for powerful conversion support, including automatic line number to figure number conversions (TC15 becomes FG:32) and much more.
- In addition to Prosurv’s extensive Feature Code and Attribute support, Prosurv now allows you to hand-enter attributes in the PopUp Quick Codes window, in a separate text box.
- Check shot with automatic inverse added to Topo/Sideshot routine. This is in addition to the Ra-dial Stake check shot capability.
- 500 percent Speed Increase in Graphics Plotting (Prosurv CE).
