MAYSVILLE, Ky., U.S.A. – Over the past six months, Carlson Software's Grade Supervisor has been well received by the construction community thanks to being both affordable and easy-to-use. Recent improvements to this software for day-to-day surface and grade management tasks have made Grade Supervisor even more user-friendly and effective.
Designed for both man and machine, Grade
Supervisor works either on the pole or in a vehicle, moving seamlessly from man
rover (GPS pole) to monitor rover (pickup/ATV). The software is Windows XP/Vista
compatible and supports most all GPS/GNSS receivers, including Topcon, Magellan,
Altus and Javad.
"Traditional methods for supervising a work site
have proved to be inaccurate, slow, and labor intensive," says Randy Noland, a
vice president of the Positioning and Machine Control Division. "Carlson's
improved Grade Supervisor provides all the tools needed for complete grade
management without the complexity as it allows grade contractors to know their
grade instantly. For bid verification, they'll always know the accurate starting
surface volumes with Grade Supervisor before moving any dirt."
In addition to providing direct import of DWG
files, DXF files, and machine control files, including tn3, gc3, and ln3, Grade
Supervisor now offers 3D View and PDF Volumes Reports. It also provides
Bluetooth support and offers a New Slope interface.
"Supervisors can get daily, weekly, or anytime
volumes, track real-time cut/fill, plus both collect and stake points," adds
Noland. "Users have found that productivity and profitability increase as their
accuracy is improved with the help of this software."
