At Traverse PC we’re focused on what surveyors and geo-spatial professionals do – every day.
Then we create software that meets those needs better than anyone else.
Three decades and twenty plus versions later, we’re still producing great software, with great support, at a great price.
We Make Drawings Fast and Easy
With TPC Desktop™ from Traverse PC you create drawings faster. We’ve streamlined your workflows by creating naturally functioning software that’s built for surveyors needs – but with all the options you’ve come to expect from CAD and other design based programs.
Create Drawings Automatically
Import, upload or enter your data in the Traverse View and TPC Desktop creates your drawings automatically
The Quick View Solution™
Whether you just want a quick point plot or you need to draw up an entire subdivision, our Quick View™ technology delivers what CAD can only promise.
Each Traverse Can Draw Itself Using Drawing Settings
Using its own unique traverse drawing settings, choose point symbols, line types, labels, leaders, fills and more.
Fully CAD Compatible
Of course, TPC Desktop is compatible with CAD layers/blocks/etc. but really, traverses pretty much do it all without the hassles of CAD.
Export to CAD, PDF or Other Common Files
When you’re finished you can export your drawings into any CAD file format, PDFs, regular image files (like PNG or JPG), or any number of other formats.
BUILT AROUND YOU
Our software is built around survey data, like points, lines, traverses and surfaces. These are the things you understand, before you even use TPC Desktop. So stepping into Traverse PC is like stepping into your own world. You’ll feel right at home and just get to work.
And it only takes a few evenings or a weekend to teach yourself TPC Desktop. If you know how to use Windows, you can easily learn TPC.
Traverse PC is 100% independent, we aren’t tied to any hardware, software or tools. That means our software comes ready to function with the systems your already using. There’s no need to buy more equipment or change systems to use TPC Desktop!
Best of all, TPC Desktop is constantly being updated to communicate with new systems. So when you’re ready to upgrade we’ll be there for you.
100% CAD COMPATIBLE
TPC Desktop is fully CAD compatible, meaning you can import, export, view and edit CAD files. That makes Traverse PC the perfect solution for customers who don’t want to take the plunge and make the investment to buy and learn CAD.
And our Calibration tools make it easy to work with CAD files that aren’t on your survey grid.
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. 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.
