“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 Traverse PC. “With Traverse PC I can survey in the field first or survey on the computer first and reconstruct in the field. Layout and volumes are a snap.” “Thank God for Traverse PC… It gives me time to fish!” Bob Holtkamp, GNG Survey, Stony Plain, AB, Canada

“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 complete so I could get paid for the survey.  This is the first time I have been able to add calls to a drawing and a vicinity map I didn’t have to draw by hand.     I had been looking for new software for some time now and had just gone through four other trial programs before I came across your advertisement in POB. The learning curve to

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.
