“Carlson Survey 2013 delivers on customer feature requests with many useful improvements to existing commands along with new commands,” says David Carlson, vice president of development for Carlson Software. “Also, the user-interface has a fresh look with a score of new and updated icons plus an optional ribbon toolbar.”

Carlson Survey is designed for use for land surveying. It provides a full tool kit for surveyors with everything from network least squares to surface modeling.
