Maysville, KY, U.S.A. (April 28, 2016) — Updated and rereleased, the versatile Simplicity Sight Survey 2016 is now available from Carlson Software.

Sight Survey 2016 is a fully three-dimensional coordinate geometry package containing all the tools you need to solve your day-to-day COGO calculations. Carlson Sight Survey is compatible with AutoCAD®, IntelliCAD®, and MicroStation®, environments. Highlighted in the 2016 release, Sight Survey has added tools for compatibility with Carlson’s 3D design environment software in Precision 3D – Culverts (sold separately).
