“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

“I finally had a chance to work with TPC Desktop 2017 and boy have you guys got something special going on with this version. I found it really easy to learn and incorporate into my existing drawing. Have a look at the PDF of a job that I labeled in probably half the time it would have taken with TPC Desktop 2016.

“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

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

John D. Lewis – Meadows of Dan, VA

“I worked almost 20 years for a large corporation that used Land Surveying software other than Traverse PC. I constantly had to attend classes to learn the software and every change with new additions and I decided that there had to be better software somewhere. I left that large corporation in 2001 to go into business as co-owner of Fork Mountain Surveying and Mapping Inc. located in Meadows of Dan, VA and I hit the ground running with Traverse PC. It’s easy to learn, easy to use and it makes Fork Mountain Surveying and Mapping Inc. look like the professionals that we are.” John D. Lewis – Meadows of Dan, VA

“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
