“I strictly run TPC and nothing else. Got rid of my other products years ago. It’s got everything I need to do all my projects. It’s always up-to-date, so delivering to clients in other formats has never been an issue.”

Sergio J. A. Sanchez  

“I have been a Traverse PC User for a few years and HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT…  I LOVE IT BECAUSE: TPC Desktop isn’t another CAD program with land surveying tacked-on. It’s point based land surveying software that starts with my survey data and ends with a very professional drawing.”

Jack Gechter, PLS, Chula Vista, CA

The Power is in the Views™

By building our software around what we call Views, we designed TPC Desktop to be the most agile desktop software available for surveyors and geospatial professionals. Use the Surfaces View to manage surfaces, the Closure View to check closures, the Report View to generate reports – you get the point. Use just the views you need for the type of survey you’re doing. Best of all you can easily toggle between Views with the touch of a button.

Works Through the Same Project Phases You Do

Research, field work, deciding where to hang your hat, drawing your survey maps, and submitting deliverables. Traverse PC designed TPC Desktop to work through the same project phases you do.

Mix-n-match Traverse Drawing Settings

Automatically generate +90% of any drawing. It doesn’t matter how fast your CAD routines are – this is faster.

We hear it from users pretty much every day, “Once I started using TPC, I could never go back to CAD.”

Visible Data

Your data is always visible, so you can find mistakes and fix them without missing a beat. Our Drawing Data Manager™ and Traverse View™ provide visible tools no other software can.

Solves Conflicting Data Issues

TPC Desktop automates the drawing process and compares conflicting data, solving issues as you progress, saving you time and headache.
