Hybrid+ Surveying Case Study: Bringing Geodetic Coordinates Inside for Rodded Boretrak® Testing

Available new in SurvCE and SurvPC 6.0 is powerful Hybrid+ Surveying, which is a mixed use of GNSS and robotic total station measurements. One of the many attractive features of Hybrid+ Surveying is GNSS Resection by Total Station. In July 2018, we used this feature to bring true geodetic coordinates, with true north azimuth, into […] ...

Note from the President – September 2018

Carlson 2019 on IntelliCAD 9.0 Works Natively on Microstation ® DGN Drawings A real breakthrough for newly released Carlson 2019 is that it can load and work natively in Microstation “.dgn” drawings. You also have the ability to start new drawings in “.dgn” mode using the File > New command. By “native”, we mean that […] ...

Note from the President – August 2018

IntelliCAD, Carlson iCAD, Dynamic CAD and Dual .DWG and .DGN CAD There is a lot happening at Carlson Software on the CAD front. Virtually all of our office software, including the flagship Carlson Survey, Carlson Civil, Takeoff and the Carlson Mining modules, work on both AutoCAD® and IntelliCAD. These are similar platforms. The beauty of […] ...

A Note from the President’s Desk – July 2018

Choice in the Survey and Civil Engineering Industries The consolidation in our industry has accelerated over the years, reducing competition and choice. Considering just robotic total station companies, you once had the choice of Geodimeter (Sweden), Zeiss (Germany), Topcon (Japan), Sokkia (Japan), Trimble (US) and Leica (Switzerland, owned by Hexagon based in Sweden). Geodimeter and […] ...

A Note from the President’s Desk

The fundamental measurement technologies today are lasers, GNSS, and photo. These technologies are augmented by various MEMS devices like inclinometers and gyros that detect tilt and direction. Carlson Software is deeply involved in all these technologies. Software drives these technologies and the newest frontier in measurement, photogrammetry. We are very pleased to announce that we […] ...

A Note from the President’s Desk

Precision 3D Hydro 2018 Premiered on April 16. “P3D Hydro”, as we call it, proves beyond any doubt the time-saving value of 3D design. The 3D visualization makes design faster and especially benefits hydrology-related engineering. CAD designers and apprentice engineers can fast-track their proficiency in peak flow and storm sewer calculations using P3D Hydro. P3D […] ...
