Custom CAD Solutions announced the release of Topomatic v2, a powerful "field to finish" software solution. Topomatic creates 2D and 3D linework, symbols, text and points from a standard ASCII PNEZD file, eliminating the majority of office drafting time. Topomatic also increases efficiency in the field by simplifying and streamlining data collection procedures.
Topomatic was developed and tested with surveyors to ensure a cognitive, user-friendly interface that surpasses the capabilities of similar products. Topomatic will accommodate any company’s standards by allowing the use of their existing symbols and feature codes (alpha or numeric). In the field, Topomatic supports multi-coding (multiple codes per shot) and multiple concurrent lines. Topomatic also eases entry of data in the field by eliminating the need for special ‘start’ and ‘end’ codes, or multiple versions of the same code to identify lines. Surveyors in the field will also appreciate Topomatic’s special codes that aid in shooting cross sections, line patterns, rectangles, and parallel lines. In the office, Topomatic gives the surveyor unparalleled control over drawing creation. Processes, layers, text styles and symbols all may be easily customized to suit each company’s needs. Topomatic also affords the unique capability of automatic text creation. Text labels may be defined as either static or dynamic, permitting the inclusion of specific information about a shot, such as its elevation, size or other identifying characteristic. More information about Topomatic, as well as a free 30-day evaluation copy and sample project files is available at Custom CAD Solutions’ web site.
