Works Like You Think

Our Mission:

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 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 Traverse PC 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, Traverse PC 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.


Our software is built around survey data, like points, lines, traverses and surfaces. These are the things you understand, before you even use TPC. 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 Traverse PC. 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!
Best of all, Traverse PC is constantly being updated to communicate with new systems. So when you’re ready to upgrade we’ll be there for you.


Traverse PC is fully CAD compatible, meaning you can import, export, view and edit CAD files. That makes TPC 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 Traverse PC to be the most agile desktop software available. Views are simply different ways to use the software and create maps. You choose the view that works best for the way you like to work and the type of survey you’re doing. You can easily toggle between Views with the touch of a button.

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