Carlson SurvCE Features
Carlson SurvCE is a complete data collection system for Real Time (RTK) GPS and total stations with in-field coordinate geometry. It supports the widest range of popular and new release RTK GPS and conventional/robotic total stations.
The Carlson Surveyor 2 is even more rugged than its popular predecessor — IP68 water & dustproof; shock resistant. Still just 2 pounds and the QWERTY keyboard speeds data entry.
Comes with a larger, brighter display screen with a higher resolution, easier-to-read color display with scratch-resistant glass.
Available options include an integrated camera, 3G modem, and GNSS receiver.

Carlson Civil Suite is a bundle that includes Carlson Survey, Carlson Civil, Carlson Hydrology & Carlson GIS. It can run standalone with the included license of IntelliCAD or on top of a separately purchased license of full AutoCAD.
The programs of the Civil Suite are mostly comparable to civil/survey programs such as: DCA/Softdesk/Land Desktop, AutoCAD Map, Civil 3d, Eagle Point, TerraModel, GeoPak and InRoads. However, some features of Carlson Civil also match up well to construction estimating software such as Paydirt, Quest and Agtek.
Carlson SurvPC data collection software is for PCs such as tablets or laptops and runs on the Windows platform. The program has 4 modules that support conventional total stations, robotic total stations, GPS and advanced roading stakeout functions.
Some of the modules can be run “stand alone” but some are dependent on other modules. For instance, SurvPC for GPS can run with or without SurvPC for total station (TS); however, the robotic total station (RTS) module requires the TS module to run and the advanced roading module requires either SurvPC for TS or GPS.
An Innovative Do-It-All Solution for both GIS and Surveying
Carlson GIS360 is an easy-to-learn and -use mobile field GIS-GPS tool that utilizes both GIS and surveying technologies for field data collection.
Designed for use by a wide variety of industries including forestry, land development, maintenance, archeology, and utility construction or maintenance, Carlson GIS360 does not require knowledge of surveying or GIS terms or their methods.
GIS360 allows field crews to navigate maps and collect and report data all in the field. It eliminates complex coding systems and works with Google Earth as well as AutoCAD® and Esri® ArcGIS products. Anyone on site can use it with minimal training.
Carlson GIS360 provides a wireless connection to any map server of choice, so users are never without a map. This saves considerable time and effort as field crews can verify that all of the data collected is accurate before leaving the site. No costly site revisits are necessary and no office work is needed.
The software’s “cloud” options mean that users’ data is always backed up with the ability to share between field and office in real-time. GIS360 goes beyond just positioning as it also includes a wide range of tools for Mobile Workforce Management, GPS data collection, tracking and asset maintenance.
Utilized on an Android tablet, smart phone or small handheld computers, Carlson GIS360 can take GIS data anywhere. The built-in GPS and compass instantly calculate what the user is looking at and finds the data automatically. Not only can data be imported directly from an office GIS, then used and edited it right where it’s needed most, but Esri Maps, Google Earth, Bing or any other mapping service can be accessed right in the field and to see everything right on the map as data is collected.
The GIS360 developed to make the collection of both above ground and underground asset information easier and more efficient by combining GIS and surveying. The result not only saves a lot of field time, but also makes the process far easier for everyone concerned.
