Topcon released TopSURV version 5.04 field controller software. Designed for WindowsCE, TopSURV expedites routine survey tasks, such as data collection, stakeout and field control. TopSURV's modular components give the user flexibility to customize applications to suit specific needs. The Basic module provides routines for tasks performed in the course of normal land surveying. Roading, GPS+, robotic, and GIS modules can be added to tailor TopSURV to the diverse needs of survey, GIS and construction professionals. TopSURV's recent validation for conformance to LandXML standards enhances file compatibility. Version 5.04 features new capabilities to: import, display and edit linework from DXF, DWG, Shape and ASCII files; import GEOTIFF graphic files for use as background maps; support laser technology rangefinders; and perform stakeout directly from the main menu. Topcon Tools 5.04, companion software for the office, has also been updated to offer the same new features as TopSURV. (Topcon, Livermore, Calif.)
