Detention Pond Design with Carlson Hydrology

Bruce Carlson, president of Carlson Software, will lead attendees of the webinar “Detention Pond Design with Carlson Hydrology” through "Before Construction" and "After Construction" runoff calculations by the SCS method using layer-based runoff coefficients, leading to Detention Pond sizing.

He'll show how ponds would be designed using DTM features, with dynamic resizing and repositioning. Multiple outlet design will be demonstrated, leading to Resevoir Routing. Outputs include Stage Storage Curves, Hydrograph reports and graphs. The use of layers for soil classifications will be shown as a way to maximize automation.

In addition, Carlson Hydrology's linkages to the popular program HydroCAD will be shown and how the programs work together for advanced pond outlet design.

Carlson listens and responds to its customers and the result is powerful, efficient, effective software. This webinar is designed to aid those looking to ease design of water runoff solutions for any site. Sign up by going to https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/530421659 .

Carlson PointCloud: Made for Surveyors and Engineers


Carlson Software, known for its surveying and civil engineering software, has produced a point clouds software that is made for the needs of surveyors and engineers.

In this webinar, Scott Griffin, civil sales director for Carlson Software, will cover Field-to-Finish, Mesh, Contours, Sections and Profiles from PointCloud data back to CAD. He'll show how Carlson PointCloud makes what you’re dealing with much more than just a bunch of points.

The newest version of Carlson PointCloud can now zoom, pan and do 3D viewing of clouds of up to 1 billion points. In any view, users can draw and re-trace linework with routines to “snap” to high and low edge lines for curbs, walls and building features.

This Carlson Software office product allows users to export surface models, points, contours, breaklines and profiles to CAD. Carlson PointCloud also enables users to read scanned data from many instruments and then perform the Field-to-Finish from the scanned data. This represents a whole new level of powerful automation for large data sets. It gives laser scanner users the ability to process millions of data points with Carlson Software ease-of-use.
