## 20+ Years of TPC

By the time I finish my evaluation of the evidence and completed the necessary calculations, much of the drawing is already complete.  Add a few standard items, touch it up a bit and I’m ready to move on to the next project.

## Spirals with R-O-W Offsets

Using TPC, I was able to lay out the centerline, offset to the rights-of-way, and get this information to my CAD tech in less than five minutes.

## Subdivision Plat

EdgeMeadowsPhase1stakingsheet.pdf   Here is the final plat. MeadowsPh1FinalPlatSheet2.pdf     Traverse PC was use for all calculations and drafting. It simply does everything I need it to do. This is a copy of my staking worksheet. It was used in the field to indicate coordinate points and show control points while setting pins. I updated … Read more

## Drone Survey with Traverse PC

CritesDepositPlatSheet2.pdf   Crites Site Plan E.pdf Crites Al-Worksheet.pdf Crites Al-Worksheet.pdf     I surveyed my parents property and we flew the site with our drone to create the ortho image. Traverse PC was used to prepare the map showing the survey overlaid on the ortho image. My dad bought the property in 1972 and I … Read more

## FDOT and Metric Engineering were very happy

FDOT wanted to see cross-sections and end areas to confirm volume computations and Javier asked if TPC could to that. Here’s my picture and a few pages of the cross sections. John the volume calculation was right on with the surface to surface calculation made by business center. FDOT and Metric Engineering were very happy and pleased … Read more

## CRS: Grid to Ground Corner Moves BLM

Create ground coordinates from a PLSS BLM job based on State Plane Coordinates [one_third] When it comes time to stakeout corners on a BLM PLSS (Public Land Survey System) job, you run into the same situation you do with any project based on projected coordinates.  The coordinates are on the grid, not the ground. But … Read more

## CRS: Geoid Models

Pick a Geoid Model and let TPC compute elevations and ellipse heights for you [one_third] Geoid Models TPC now supports all NGS Geoids up through Geoid 2012A and Geoid 2012B. You can download and install additional NGS geoids and they will show up in this list. Of course, we still include the NGA geoids for … Read more

## CRS: From PRJ Files

Learn how to set your survey’s Coordinate Reference System  from a GIS Projection file [one_third] PRJ Files Each survey in TPC can have it’s own Coordinate Reference System (CRS) which relates geodetic positions to grid coordinates.  You select the survey’s CRS by selecting the appropriate CRS file, then the zone (location) within that CRS file. … Read more

## Coordinate Reference System (CRS) Files

Learn how to set your survey’s Coordinate Reference System   [one_third] CRS Files Each survey in TPC can have it’s own Coordinate Reference System (CRS) which relates geodetic positions to grid coordinates.  You select the survey’s CRS by selecting the appropriate CRS file, then the zone (location) within that CRS file. This video shows you how … Read more

## Exporting Sideshots to Google Earth

Want your Side Shots to show up in Google Earth?   [one_third] Export Sideshots to Google Earth In TPC, control points create features like parcels, rights-of-way and boundaries.  While sideshots generally show a tie to something – like a found monument or guyline anchors for a power pole.  Sometimes sideshots are just points, like topo shots. … Read more

## Exporting Tangents and Curves to Google Earth

TPC exports tangents and curves to Google Earth?   [one_third] Exporting Tangents and Curves to Google Earth Lines and curves show up as lines and curves in Google Earth. All the line data is there – end point coordinates, radius, central angle and more. Google Earth calls this data Line Markers TPC could send just the … Read more
