President’s Message: Closures and Adjustments – Mark’s Tech Corner: Protecting Your Most Valuable Asset – Your Data – Eric Tanikawa: March Madness President’s Message: Closures and Adjustments Just about every day, we get asked, “Does TPC do closures?” And the short answer is, “Yes.” Every traverse has a closure because it starts somewhere and stops somewhere. If it closes back on itself, it’s a Closed Loop and generates an area. Traverses know if they close back on themselves, so they can … Read More

I taught myself how to run TPC. I had no experience with any other CADD system, so I found it to be very surveyor friendly. We use it for every aspect of our business and have produced excellent plats”. “TPC staff has been great to work with. Billy Bechaver, Senior Survey Technician, Wachob & Wachob, Inc.

We use Traverse PC for all maps that we produce, and have found the process of preparing a map to be much more efficient than using other programs. It’s also great to use the same program on the desktop as we use for data collection in the field. The cost is reasonable also, and we have found that the ability to share the maps with architects and engineers is very useful. Dan Barry, NY & PA Licensed Land Surveyor View PDF in … Read More

Spurlock: Dependent Survey

posted in: Maps | 0

Here is my 1st successful attempt at completing a complicated drawing totally within TPC. Not that we could not make drawings in past, just  never could get the look I was seeking. All of my past surveys have been resolved using TPC, but we had been finalizing in CAD. Looks like we won’t be utilizing CAD programs any more for boundary mappings. I  estimate a significant cost savings looking forward. Greg Spurlock, Longview, WA
