Designed to Handle ANY Land Survey Project
TPC Desktop™ offers virtually any kind of land surveying mapping from start to finish in one package. Breeze through small traverses or work through large surveys with tools like multiple traverses, point protection, and standard database features like search, replace and query.
Traverse PC’s TPC Desktop™ can help you map control surveys, boundary surveys, site surveys, topographic surveys, mortgage surveys, construction staking, curve stakeout, subdivision design, road layout, plat checks, area computations and many, many more. If you can dream of it, TPC Desktop™ can map it!
TPC Desktop™ has the tools to help you with deed research, finding monuments and projecting locations, computing your control points and side shots. and when you’re ready, you can move easily from a control survey to a topo or site survey.
Sometimes, your surveys end up being a little bit of everything on site. Like shore lines, rock walls, driveways, vegetation, buildings, and you name it. TPC Desktop’s Point Codes turn your field data into your map.
TPC Desktop™ has all the tools to generate surfaces, edit breaklines, exclude areas, compute volumes and do slope analysis. And if you need to export to CAD, we deliver a complete polyfacemesh along with your contours.
You’ll find all the tools to compute offsets, setbacks, points on line and pretty much anything else you need. TPC Desktop™ even has tools to check linework from CAD drawings so that each line starts right where the last one ended. And we makes it easy to convert grid to ground and export just the points you want to your data collector, total station or GPS.
TPC Desktop™ has all the tools to convert objects in a CAD drawing to survey, pick CAD lines and labels and turn them into bearings and distances entered right into the Traverse View. And it’s easy to check closures, offsets, areas and more.
TPC Desktop™ makes it so simple to perform mortgage surveys, even users without land surveying backgrounds are able to create mortgage survey reports and maps. if you can navigate windows-based software, you can create mortgage surveys with TPC Desktop™.
Use TPC Desktop’s tools for alignments, right-of-way offsets, lot setbacks, predetermined areas and more to generate subdivision roads and lots. Labeling lot lines and areas is easy with our traverse drawing settings. And our automatic lot setbacks let you specify which lot lines are Front / Side / Rear and TPC Desktop™ does all the rest.
ALTA/NSPS(ACSM) Land Title Surveys
TPC Desktop™ has all the tools to help you meet the minimum standard for Positional Tolerance and Relative Positional Precision using our built-in Least Squares network analysis. You’ll also find all the necessary drawing tools like Line Tables, Lot Tables and Curve Tables.
Public Lands Survey System (PLSS) Surveys
TPC Desktop™ features PLSS with ground distance and true bearing via the 2009 BLM Manual of Survey. We’re the only ones who do it that way from start to finish. That means better data, so there are no apparent misclosures when you close a section.
Other Types of Surveys:
TPC Desktop™ is not just powerful software that is easy to use. It’s also extremely versatile – because its not designed to be constraining to the user. Instead we developed TPC Desktop™ to work the way the you prefer, offering multiple ways, or Views as we call them, to produce your deliverables. You learn two or three of the many views and you’ve learned the software. Over the years this has resulted in clients that use TPC Desktop™ in countless applications and industries. Here is just sampling of what our clients have used our software for:
- Right-Of-Way Surveys
- Construction Surveys
- Tunnel Surveys and Mapping
- Road/sidewalk planning
- Landscape Design and Mapping
- Parking Stall Design and Planning
- Septic Design
- Wetland Mapping
- Legal Descriptions
- Metes & Bounds
- Small Municipality Infrastructure Mapping
- Farm & Ranch Infrastructure mapping
- Road Planning
- Utility Line Mapping
- Storm Sewer Mapping
- Mineral Deposit Mapping
- Crime Scene Investigation
- We’ve even had a customer design their ski resort chairlift with Traverse PC!
