Make your Drawings Easier with TPC Desktop

What’s the difference between Traverse PC and other survey programs like CAD? It’s simple. Traverse PC is simply the easiest to use because your data is always visible and easy to update. We like to use a cake baking analogy to show why TPC Desktop’s visible data feature is such a game changer.

With CAD and other survey software once you’ve chosen your ingredients and baked your cake, the job is done. If you want to adjust the cake to your taste after it’s been baked you have to start over and bake a whole other cake. That’s a normal process, and one we’re accustomed to. But Traverse PC knew there was a better way.

When a Traverse PC cake is baked, you can still see all the ingredients that went into it the finished product. And not only can you see the ingredients – you can adjustment them on the fly and remove or add entire ingredients. You can tinker with the cake just to see what’s possible. And as you bake more cakes, it’s that much easier to perfect your craft.  And the result? We’ll we don’t have to tell you bakes a better cake do we!

That’s the central advantage Traverse PC gives users over CAD – the ability to access and change you data anytime, even after you’ve created your deliverable. With TPC Desktop you take complete control of your data.

Software Designed Around You!

We designed Traverse PC from the ground up to be the most agile surveying program available. We accomplish this by building our software around what we call Views.

Views are simply different ways to use the software and create maps. You choose the view that works best for the way you like to work and the type of survey you’re doing. You can easily toggle between Views with the touch of a button.

Put them all together and you have TPC Desktop™, the most powerful and agile land survey software on the market
