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.
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.
MicroSurvey FieldGenius Features
MicroSurvey FieldGenius has evolved into the most powerful and productive data collection software in the land surveying market. Code-free linework, smart points, and live graphics make FieldGenius the choice of organizations that value productivity.
FieldGenius works with many GPS receivers and on a multitude of handheld data collectors. We believe you shouldn't have to buy all new equipment just to upgrade one component.
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.
