Works Like You Think

Starting Right

You go to a theater to watch a movie or stream it yourself to a screen, but that’s not where the movie started.  It started somewhere on a movie set with props, cameras and actors then moved through production, editing, marketing and distribution before it ever hits a screen.

That’s the problem with using CAD software for land surveying.  The drawing isn’t where you start.  You start with research and data then move through decision making, editing and then the drawings.  Traverse PC makes beautiful, professional drawings, but it gets there with technologies like Traverses™ and Quick View™ that start right and work like you think.

Unified Help System

The Unified Help System is TPC’s User‘s Manual.

If TPC does it, you’ll find it here.

  • Help Topics – choose your topic from our rich Table of Contents then drill down to the specific thing you’re looking for.
  • Workflows – pick from descriptive workflows like Writing Legal Descriptions or Checking Lot Closure.
  • Videos – we’ve embedded short videos into the help topics so you can read or watch.
  • Learning Guides – these provide step-by-step, cookbook style instructions in on-line PDFs.

Traverses, The Natural Way to Organize Data

TPC Desktop™ presents your survey data in an organized and easy-to-use form that makes your drawings and workflows efficient and natural.

  • A Traverse™ can be anything – a property boundary, a control loop, etc.
  • Organize features into Traverses™ – trees, power poles, rock walls, building pads, drain fields, or edge of pavement. You can make anything a Traverse™.
  • Traverses™ compute everything you need – length, closure, area, and volume.
  • Traverses™ can be automatically generated from Point Codes.
  • Import points like GPS/GNSS, ASCII or TBC and turn them into Traverses™.
  • Traverses™ correlate perfectly with subdivision lots, GIS shapes and LandXML parcels and alignments.  TPC Desktop™ is well connected.
  • Traverses™ are the best and easiest way to compare record data with measured data. 

 

The Power Is In the Views

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

You use the Views™ 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™, by Traverse PC, the most powerful and agile land survey software on the market.

Watch the video to the right for detailed information on Views™ and see how powerful and easy TPC Desktop™ is to use!

Visible Data™ – All the Time!

Has using another land survey software program or CAD left you frustrated because you couldn’t access or change your data? Traverse PC’s traverse view feature changes that.

Simply click into the traverse view feature you have access to all your data. Right-click any survey object (line, label, symbol) in a drawing and TPC Desktop™ takes you right to that point in a traverse.

Your data is always editable, so if you find a mistake, you can fix it without missing a beat.

 

 

Quick View™ – Your Data Does the Drawing!

We can’t say enough about our Quick View™ technology. You get to see what your data looks like without drawing it and without fiddling with those drawing commands you can never remember how to use.

Just choose the settings you want for Control, Side Shots and Lot Labels, and let our Quick View technology do the rest.

Draw everything the same or choose settings for individual traverses and you have a very sophisticated drawing without ever drawing a thing yourself.  Then export to CAD, PDF, GIS, Google Earth or whatever deliverables are required.

Watch the video on the left for detailed information on our feature-rich Quick View™ technology.
