“I have been using Traverse PC for a number of years and know it’s a great program, however, I didn’t realize how very accurate the computations were, especially with regards to curves and their included / excluded areas. Had the occasion to check a final map with numerous curves along the frontage of the lots that had been compiled using AutoCAD. The number of discrepancies that were found in the curve data and the lot areas was astonishing.  Thank you for a great product and your fantastic tech support.” JIm Riotto, LS3911, Paradise, CA

“To Mark, and everyone else at Traverse PC: “You will be happy to note that I’ve retired and turned the computer operations over to my dog. No longer will you be hindered with having to converse with a computer language illiterate. “You are the reverse of what usually occurs when calling for support with other companies. Your clear voice of un-accented English, your expertise, your superb patience and your kindness and empathy is extraordinary and much appreciated. “Thank you for preparing the maps so that I was able to fulfill my obligations to my clients. This is delivered belatedly because I have been waiting for your bill to arrive to send a check and not intentionally withholding my appreciation for your assistance.” (EDITOR’S NOTE: Elaine waited in vain for our bill. We did not charge her for the assistance.) “And now, since it’s a

EJ "Ted" Webber - Nova Scotia Land Surveyor, Lake Charlotte, Nova Scotia, Canada

“As a licensed land surveyor for the past 46 years, I have gone from using everything from logarithms and T squares to COGO software and computerized drafting, with many advances in technology along the way. I have tried various surveying software packages but found none of the programs worked in a manner that completely served my needs as a land surveyor. “Then about thirteen years ago I found Traverse PC; this is truly a surveyor’s program. TPC works and thinks like a surveyor, it is powerful, intuitive, regularly updated and is backed by support staff that is second to none. I have no regrets, it’s TPC all the way.” Ted Webber, Nova Scotia Land Surveyor E.J.

Postcard from Barbra Cooper

Barbara Cooper, a long long time TPC user with Hawaii Electric, recently took TPC to India. She sent back pictures of the project with a little note about how much she appreciated Traverse PC. “I celebrated my retirement from 33 years as a paid Land Surveyor by volunteering for a project in India with Engineering Ministries International. I was part of a nine person team that had to gather data on a 100+ acre missionary complex in only 6 field days, to create an as-built drawing of the site. “Traverse PC proved to be a true blessing by enabling me to aid in the creation of the drawing after returning to the US.  It allowed me to easily match the local Indian UTM datum and units used by the staff in India. I imported their CAD drawing sheets to use as an underlay while

As a small business owner with no designated graphics or CAD person, I needed to learn a mapping program that could bring me from beginner to expert level quickly. I chose Traverse PC.  After only two hours of training with the TPC Connection, I am now drawing clean, beautiful plats and contour maps in Traverse PC.  Traverse PC and the TPC Connection technical service are worth their weight in gold! “ Kevin J.

“I am the sole Land Surveyor for a resource company who actively manages over 420,000 acres in Northern California. I do not have time to learn complicated CADD programs which were not designed specifically for surveying. I need a stand alone survey program that is intuitive, powerful, efficient, and is back by excellent tech support. TraversePC has been that program for me for the last 9 years.” “I took a semester long class on Land Development Desktop to see if I could benefit from such a program at work. Over the course of the semester, I learned how to import points, develop a contour map from the points, insert breaklines, insert text, and print. Using Traverse PC, I was able to teach myself in less than a day how to do everything I learned in the semester long class. Traverse PC is the way

” The new release provided me with the tools for computing grid to geodetics in a matter of 15 minutes and my line work was plat ready. “You need to be careful, you don’t want  get lazy” but this is efficient.  I compared geodetic bearings to our CMM project and ” What can I say it’s Poetry”.  TPC’s new BLM “PLSS” blocks, north arrow, scale, Title Bar and drawing template made a seamless entry for me to start my plat.” Tony O’Rourke, LSIT, Willow Creek, CA

” When opening our new land surveying business in the fall of 2007, we made the choice to go with a major survey software provider based on an AutoCAD engine. After a whole day of struggling to get a finished drawing out for our client, we loaded up a trial version of Traverse PC v8.0 (TPC) and within 4 hours, we were signing and sealing a final plan for delivery. “Since that time, we have continued to grow our company utilizing TPC. Whether our finished product is a mortgage survey, septic plan, boundary survey, or commercial site plan, our clients have come to expect clear and concise drawings that TPC helps us produce. It is these qualities in our plans that are now being recognized by our local review agencies. “Traverse PC has the ability to import multiple types of survey/GIS data and customize each

“Traverse PC was an evident choice for me when I started my own surveying firm at my kitchen table.  As the projects came in the door, upgrading to professional was a great choice that paid dividends.  Having used several drafting and mapping programs, I champion Traverse PC as a viable standalone option for any surveyor.  Made for Surveyors, I have not had any conflict with CAD data and continue to produce amazing plats and export accurate topo data to my clients.  The tech support is incredible and the programming is high quality.  I am expanding my office to hire another drafter and Traverse PC was a clear winner for drafting software.” Casey Cockrell, RPLS/Owner , Southern Survey Company Voted Best Surveyor in East Texas by the Longview News Journal 2011 Reader’s Choice Awards

“I am an owner of a small survey company. About five years ago, I purchased a copy of the Professional Edition of TPC. After using a variety of mostly CAD based survey programs, I was amazed at the short learning curve it took to adjust to TPC. In using TPC, I am able to create my drawings in a short time. And when I would run into a problem or have questions which were typically in the evening hours, I was always able to get a quick response from tech support. I recently purchased the TPC Desktop 2010 and am pleasantly surprised at the amount of great additions made to the program. I would highly recommend this product for anyone looking to purchase a surveying program.” John Rutter, PS, Columbus, OH

“I have been using Traverse PC for almost eight years now. Having been a surveyor for over 50 years & also having owned my own business for 15 years, I can say without a doubt this software is the easiest I have ever learned to use. As a beginner, with minimal training, you are able to produce basic survey drawings practically right out of the box. In addition, as you grow with the software the software kind of grows with you as you learn insights into some pretty slick stuff the software provides that kind of goes unnoticed until necessity motivates you to dig deeper. It is then you make some very interesting “discoveries” that produce awesome results that leaves you smiling. To top it off, they keep making great software even greater with continuing enhancement. The software writers are open to suggestions &

“To the makers of Traverse-PC, Yu ROCK! I am a student… and have been using your program all summer. As a rookie to the survey profession I find the program to be very user friendly. Traverse PC is helpful with understanding how data is used to make decisions in a survey, as well as providing a visual image illustrating what the data collected is trying to show. Excellent product please keep up the good work!” Joel Kayser, Student, Alfred State College, NY

I have used TPC since Version 1.0, both the office and the data collection versions. While I have had my issues with TPC (mostly my own stupidity) I keep coming back (usually after a couple days…). Their tutorials are on spot, their learning videos are very helpful and their support is the best software support I have ever had. Even in this economy I have kept the support up for that reason, and their updates are excellent, they even make sure if ‘we’ need or see something they really try to make it happen. Up until 2 years ago my office prepared hand drawn surveys only, now it all leaves the office made with pride using TPC. SO far I have convinced 4 of my local friends to use TPC and they are also very happy. As the saying goes, try it you’ll like
