I’m on my 4th year of TPC and highly recommend it. I would download a trial copy and work through some of the examples they have in the Learning Guides. You will have to get out of the CAD mind set. Even though it has some CAD capabilities this is not a CAD program. It uses your data (point id, horz, vert, description) to generate the information and drawings for you. The program is very flexible in how to represent … Read More

Dan Barry, LS in NY & PA As a former CAD user, I have found the versatility and ease of use of Traverse-PC to be a great benefit to my business. The program is customizable to the way … Read More
“Traverse PC is the most complete software out there. It’s cut my total production time down by making map preparation faster and easier. I’ve also been able to please all my clients by being able to deliver quicker and in any format they want. It’s just made business simpler for me.” Sergio J. A. Sánchez, SIR_GEO, San Pedro, CA
Traverse PC announced the addition of On Line Videos to their website.
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.

“I’m working in the high Arctic on a project called the DEW Line Clean Up (DLCU). DEW is an acronym for Distant Early Warning systems and is a joint project of the Canadian and American military.” “The Department of Defense would accept only AutoCAD or Traverse PC. AutoCAD is not surveyor friendly.” “The economics are simple. Without Traverse PC our company would not have this lucrative contract. “I could not do this job with such ease without the help of … Read More
“This is the surveying software I have been looking for. I have spent about two weeks playing with Traverse PC while I have been using my old surveying software to complete work already downloaded. The drawing I have attached is my first completed drawing that took about a couple of hours to finish. The problem with Traverse PC is finding a place to stop, I keep finding things to do to the drawing and finally had to stop and call it … Read More
“TPC Desktop is more impressive than any AutoCAD version that I have ever used. It applies the most logical processes and solutions that are used everyday in surveying and works them into a clean interface that is easy to understand and simple to use. Traverse PC is loaded with time-saving features that allow me to customize and produce drawings efficiently with confidence.” Bryan Hartsook, Fork Mountain Surveying and Mapping, Inc., Meadows of Dan, VA
I prefer TPC over other software for plat drawing because of the ability to change your scale factor of a drawing without having to go through the drawing changing the scale of everything within the drawing. Every drawing has its own specific legend. And if you can think how a surveyor would do something, not a CAD operator, the software is fairly straight-forward to use. Alan Lusk, Adairsville, GA (10+ years experience as a CAD operator)
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

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
