CAiCE Software Corporation announced that they have entered into a cooperative software development agreement with Leica Geosystems Inc. Through this agreement, Leica’s TPS DataPro data collection system will be integrated with CAiCE’s Visual Survey Software.
The integration means that users can directly output from Leica TPS1100 Total Stations, GPS System 500, TPS700 and 300 instruments to CAiCE through the Survey Data Management System data format. Integration capabilities will allow users to create CAiCE PRJ files directly from a Leica total station or GPS receiver, export horizontal and vertical alignments to Leica format for upload to field equipment, export CAiCE alignment station equation information to a Leica station equation file for upload to the field equipment. Other integration capabilities include ability to communicate directly from CAiCE to Leica total stations using the Leica Data Exchange Module, create a Leica cross-section assignment file for stakeout and create Leica point coordinate files for upload to data collectors.
