by Carlson Software Inc.

Utilizing the same data throughout a project, without the need for any conversions, saves time and effort while it increases accuracy. This is how Carlson Software enables its users to be more competitive. From earliest stages of collecting the data, to designing projects, to estimating the costs, to building, Carlson has the software solutions to meet your needs. Carlson is “For the Total Project.”


Carlson data collection software with advanced roading
Start with Carlson’s accurate, intuitive data collection software – Carlson SurvCE or SurvPC (which can be utilized on standard Windows PC computers) – and collect the critical data for throughout your projects. That same data can be transformed into flawless maps and CAD drawings complete with linework, symbols and points, all layered and drawn when it’s flowed into Carlson’s CAD-based office design tools – Carlson Survey, Civil, Hydrology, Takeoff and more – tools designed to work the way you think; tools that get your projects, whatever their size, done faster and better.

Both Carlson SurvCE and SurvPC are complete data collection systems for Real Time (RTK) GPS and Total Stations with in-field coordinate geometry, and support the widest range of popular and new release RTK GPS and conventional/ robotic total stations. With the Advanced Roading option, the user can edit centerline and profile data, draw profiles, and perform slope staking functions directly in the SurvCE software.

Carlson SurvPC data collection software enables land surveyors to work in the GIS environment. Crews can access Esri® or other GIS source data in the field; ArcGIS points, lines and polygons can be used for staking. ArcGIS Nodes can be used for resections and localization; and users will be able to query GIS feature attributes at any time with the Store Points, Stake Points, and Map View screens.


Easily design in 2D and 3D with Carlson Civil

The versatile Carlson Civil and Hydrology desktop design software works on AutoCAD® (and Civil3D®) versions 2004 to current. With the RoadNETwork or SiteNETwork aspects of Carlson Civil, users are able to design (and dynamically change) all design in both 2D and 3D with a single click of the “Process” button. Users say this about Carlson Civil, “It’s just so easy to use and so productive… I would recommend Carlson Civil to anybody, and have!”

Reduce need for on-site personnel with Carlson Takeoff and Carlson Grade
Use Carlson Takeoff to estimate from cross-sections and to prepare the model for exact staking or for machine control. With Carlson Grade, it’s the very same data from throughout the project that brings the design to the blade, the drill, the excavator, and more and enables the operator to execute plans to your specifications. In addition, this also increases safety on the worksite. Carlson Grade, a premier 3D machine control software, supports most heavy machine types, most sensors, and the world’s largest GNSS library. With Carlson Grade, users get real time Cut/Fill across the entire project, volumes daily, weekly or any time, 3D volume reports output to PDF, ability to directly import .dwg, .dxf, TN3, GC3 and LN3, and grade check for all machines.
