“It’s the best investment for Engineering and Survey Companies and it pays for itself”

“It’s a NO-CAD zone written by Land Surveyors for Professional Land Surveyors doing business. Great Staff and full Technical Support with option to have private sessions from anywhere you have internet access… Affordable and once purchased it’s yours for life! AutoCad is expensive and Civil Software needs to be purchased to work for you & you have to renew licenses to operate every year! Traverse PC has been in business for 30 years ! It’s the best investment for Engineering and Survey Companies and it pays for itself… after 1 or 2 Survey Contracts!!! John Montes de Oca – Chula Vista, CA

“Traverse PC software’s high degree of customization allows it to adapt to the surveyor instead of the other way around.”

Traverse View Formats

“Traverse PC software’s high degree of customization allows it to adapt to the surveyor instead of the other way around. It is an intuitive package as well as a powerful one. The software reflects that it is developed by surveyors for surveyors. It’s not without its faults, but the developers are continually refining the software and take into account user feedback. Technical support is excellent – response is fast, clear, and courteous.” Jerry Mahun – Cuba City, WI

“This surveying software is a complete package and does everything I need as a Texas surveyor”

“I bought the Traverse PC Desktop Professional Edition in 2016 soon after beginning my consulting practice. I called and spoke with owner and founder John Balcom to place my order. Technical work and drafting are not my strong suits but this surveying software is a complete package and does everything I need as a Texas surveyor. “My practice frequently involves retracement of original surveys, all reported in varas. Traverse PC recently added varas to its list of units making it super easy to enter data in varas and calculate in varas. No more converting back and forth outside the program. They did this for their customers in Texas! “Can’t say enough good things about Mark Lull in Support at Traverse PC. Help is only a phone call or email away and I always get the help I need when I need it. “This is

“Without Traverse PC our company would not have this lucrative contract.”

2007 – 2013 “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. Which is a joint project of the Canadian and American military. When the Cold War began in the early 50’s we decided we needed some sort of protective warning system in case the Russians were to attack us from the North so we constructed a line of radar facilities in the high Canadian arctic to keep vigil which we still do today. “Unfortunately all these years and mountains of garbage toxins and PCB’s, etc were deposited on hundreds of acres of pristine tundra. No possible way to dispose properly and nobody cared. Today the 23 major sites, 58 altogether if you count intermediate are either being demolished or if they are not decommissioned they will be

“Thank you for a great product and your fantastic tech support”

Jim Riotto - LS3911, Paradise, CA

“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 LS – Paradise, CA

“Even a 10 year old can pick it up quickly and create her 5th grade geography project”

“Ok, so yes I’m bragging about my daughter, but I also think Traverse PC should be proud that they’ve made a program so easy that even a 10 year old can pick it up quickly and create her 5th grade geography project using it.  I gave her minimal instruction and helped her find the base map, but she really did this all herself.  Her ‘project description’ up in the corner tells what she did.” Paul W Hannan LS – Plainfield, VT

“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

My clients “were very impressed with the procedure and left as a very satisfied client”

I recently completed a complex survey involving several lots, easements, and rights of way using Traverse PC. My survey was pin to Washington State plane coordinate system North zone. Upon completion I created a KML file and brought it into Google Earth. I did this for two reasons; first, I wanted to look at my survey on Google Earth and check to see if there were any blunders that I could detect. By looking at my line work on top of Google Earth I could check for occupation lines or any blatant problems that my survey may have. I found it to be a good check. The second reason I made the KML file is to show my client where their property was. By superimposing the survey on Google Earth my client could see where the property was on a picture that they could

“Looks like we won’t be utilizing CAD programs any more for boundary mappings.”

Finding Monument

“Attached is my 1st successful attempt at completing a complicated drawing totally within TPC.  Not that we could not make drawings in the 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.” “Open an old CAD drawing and you get a nice drawing, open Traverse PC you get a story of your previous work field to finish, raw data, control, applied analysis and the project drawings all in a single file.” Greg Spurlock, Statewide Land Surveying, Inc., Gresham, OR
