CINCINNATI - At the opening session of the Carlson Software 30th Anniversary User Conference, Bruce Carlson, president and founder of Carlson Software, announced that the newest version of Carlson Software’s data collection software – Carlson SurvCE 3.0 – will be released in April.

Carlson SurvCE 3.0 supports a wide range of RTK GPS and conventional/robotic total stations. Newest instrument drivers added for total stations and GPS receivers include: Geomax Zoom 80, Carlson CR2/CR5 robotic, Topcon PS, Sokkia SX/50RX and South OnBoard total stations, and 20 or more models of GPS from Carlson, Hemisphere, Datagrid, Topcon, Leica, Altus, CHC, Hi-Target, Navcom, Stonex, Javad, Geomax, Satlab and the Spectra Epoch 50.

SurvCE 3.0 is available in more than two dozen languages. These include: English, Spanish, French, French (Canadian), Portuguese, Czech, Dutch, simplified Chinese, Korean, Greek, Italian, Polish, Hungarian, Swedish, Latvian and more.

Carlson SurvCE 3.0 features an optional icon-based interface and new Cloud-based messaging, file transfer, NGS monument recall, simplified stakeout methods, powerful GPS measurement averaging and blunder detection in the field (with accuracies in-between RTK and post-processing). The Carlson SurvCE 3.0 upgrade is offered for just $150 for Carlson customers already using SurvCE. The price to purchase SurvCE remains the same.

“The main and universal advantages of SurvCE are retained-a simple interface, quick learning curve, now even stronger graphics, and a rich set of features to complete any work from building and highway stakeout, to property surveying, TOPO, control and GIS data collection,” adds Carlson.

Those upgrading to SurvCE 3.0 or moving over to the data collection software will find new camera integration among its many improvements. This integration will provide the ability to attach pictures to points and lines and store in KMZ and EXIF files containing relevant data such as position and description.

Other features include:
  • Ability to stake roads by complete LandXML Road Model-a new method augmenting “By Sections,” “By Templates” and “From Map;”
  • Ability to use point “blocks” from drawings as point symbols or as objects to snap to for stakeout or for creating alignments, with GIS attributes associated with blocks recognized;
  • Large point ID and description fields – expanded to 256 characters;
  • Use of RTCM 3.1 messages from virtual reference stations to auto-compute grid and geoid shifts.
