Carlson Survey 2012, released in September 2011, gives users increased 3D visualization, extensive new 3D coding in its industry-renowned Field-to-Finish, and the ability to produce customized, more professional reports among its many additional improvements.

The number one office software solution for surveyors in the United States, Carlson Survey provides support in its 2012 release for AutoCAD 2012 and comes with IntelliCAD 7.1 built-in. This is in addition to working on AutoCAD versions 2000 and up.

“The biggest improvement in Carlson Survey 2012 is in its 3D aspects,” says David Carlson, V.P. of Development for Carlson Software. “The 3D Viewer has updates including showing 3D objects, the symbol library has a collection of 3D trees, vehicles, people and utilities, and Field-to-Finish has new 3D coding.”

These, combined with a new and improved Report Formatter, makes for more customized and more impressive reports.

With the interest in Carlson software design solutions growing around the world, the development team at Carlson has added support for more coordinate systems and for angles in GON format, requests from international users.

“They’ll find 14 more projection methods, hundreds more pre-defined projection definitions and 11 more built-in ellipsoid definitions,” adds Carlson. This is combined with added support for Carlson SurvCE CSL and Esri PRJ projections definitions.

Carlson Survey is made exclusively for surveyors. It provides a full tool kit with everything from network least squares to surface modeling. Users get the ability to work seamlessly between the office and the field and they can establish company-wide design styles to ease and speed their work.

Along with Carlson Survey for 2012, Carlson Software is also releasing the 2012 versions of Carlson Civil, Carlson Hydrology, Carlson GIS, Carlson Point Cloud, Carlson Mining, Carlson Takeoff, and Carlson Natural Regrade, each featuring its own industry-specific improvements.
