Intergeo attendees will be the first to see the new SurvCE 5.0 as Carlson experts are demonstrating the popular data collection software’s newest abilities at its indoor stand, (#C8.017, Hall 8) and its outdoor stand (FG.004) in Stuttgart, Germany, Sept. 15 through 17.

“SurvCE 5.0 is incorporating new emerging technologies like IMU support, while still providing its renowned friendly user environment,” says Jesus Latova, SurvCE product director. “Simplicity and safety are our main focus in developing these new features, together with continuing the extensive instrument support capacity of SurvCE."  

The software is scheduled to be officially released and available for download following extensive testing and after final enhancements are completed in October. Those buying a new license of SurvCE 4.0 software between now and the release of SurvCE 5.0 will receive an automatic upgrade to 5.0.

SurvCE 5.0 focuses on speed and power.  A new memory allocator empowers users to do more faster, opening large drawing and coordinate files with ease.

Other top new improvements include the following:

  • Enhanced GNSS tilt sensor (IMU) for confirmation of level and the taking of measurements with tilted GPS/GNSS poles (works with selected GNSS such as Stonex and CHC in addition to Carlson)
  • All-new GNSS Mission Planning, which will include Glonass mission planning
  • Newly designed two-step stakeout procedure that now intuitively and accurately guides the user to his point, delivering easy-to-follow navigation that shifts to proximity information as he gets close to target
  • Map-picked, cursor-displayed stakeout and one-pick measurement options

Featuring hundreds of additions and improvements, Carlson SurvCE 5.0 continues to support a wide range of popular and new release RTK GPS and conventional/robotic total stations.

Carlson SurvCE is both powerful and easy to use, providing users with the options to collect data as they prefer. SurvCE 5.0 will be available in nearly two dozen languages. These include: English, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Swedish, Tagalog and Turkish.
