ALMERE, Netherlands – Carlson’s 2012 edition of its CAD-based office software modules – Survey, Civil, Hydrology, GIS, Point Cloud, Construction, Takeoff, Geology, Surface/Underground Mining, and Natural Regrade – are now available in Spanish. Full translation of the code was completed by Carlson personnel together with Aretei Asistencia S.L.L., a top Carlson Software dealer in Spain.

“We are very excited to be able to present Carlson’s wide range of office design software in the Spanish language,” says Jesus Latova of Carlson EMEA , who is based in Madrid, Spain and helped to lead the effort. “The demand for having access to Carlson’s technically advanced, yet easy-to-use software for land development and mining in the Spanish-speaking world has been very strong.”

All of the recent improvements for 2012, including increased 3D visualization and 3D coding, and the ability to produce customized, more professional reports, have been retained in the translation. The software offers choice of CAD platform of AutoCAD, version 2000 through 2012, and IntelliCAD 6.6, a .dwg file compatible CAD platform, comes built-in and ready to use for no extra cost. A beta version of IntelliCAD 7.1 is also included as a preview of the upcoming major new release.

Here are quick overviews of the Carlson 2012 modules:

Carlson Survey:An incredibly productive and intuitive survey solution complete with SurvNET Network Least Squares and drivers to connect to essentially every manufacturers’ proprietary hardware and software, making this the top software solution for surveyors.

Carlson Civil:Robust automation and a wide selection of “power” tools combine with ease-of-use to increase productivity while creating better, more precise road, site, and subdivision designs in less time.

Carlson Hydrology:Full 3D site, road and lot design feeds directly into flow calculations and drainage design with the automation and precision users need.

Carlson GIS:An all-purpose, easy-to-use tool for the surveyor or engineer provides advanced data capture and linking, data labeling, import/export of SHP files, polygon topology creation and analysis and more.

Carlson Construction:An integrated design and 3D surface modeling software solution for site and road construction with powerful inspection and 3D viewing tools for elevating 2D designs to 3D model files.

Carlson Takeoff:Fast and accurate CAD-based project estimating able to take paper plans to machine control with easy-to-use evaluation tools for quantity and quality control.

Carlson Point Cloud:Gives laser scanner users the ability to go from field scan to finished plat and process millions of data points with a whole new level of powerful automation and Carlson Software ease-of-use.

Carlson Geology:A complete geologic modeling package to manage drillhole data, plus calculate strata models, block models, quantities and qualities. It supports all the major geological modeling techniques, including triangulation, inverse distance, Kriging, polynomial and least squares.

Carlson Mining:An acknowledged industry standard, the surface mining module produces the most efficient mine design by testing layouts in plan, section and 3D view; the underground mining module creates complete mine projections and ventilations with all the tools needed for precise design and scheduling.

Carlson Natural Regrade:For those faced with disturbed lands, this software will help them design an affordable and natural way to reclaim land and increase future sustainability at the same time.
