Licenses, Policies, Requirements

Got questions about your TPC license?

Subscription – Quarterly / Annual

You purchase a subscription license for 3 months (quarterly) or a year (annual), called the Subscription Period.

  • At the end of the license period, you are automatically billed and the subscription renews for another Subscription Period.
  • You can cancel a subscription at any time.
  • You can upgrade to a perpetual license anytime by paying just the price difference.

Educational

At Traverse PC, we believe that we must all help to ensure that the land surveying/geospatial/engineering industries continues to have the best prepared, most professional new workforce possible. That is why we provide our software to land surveying training programs at no cost.  Learn More.

30-day Grace Period

All TPC licenses can be run off-line for up to 30 days. So go ahead, take your laptop out in the field. When you run TPC without internet, it starts the 30-day grace period. Run TPC as many times as you want and as long as you want for up to 30 days. The next time you are in the office and run TPC with internet access, the grace period automatically resets, ready to start the next 30-day grace period when needed.

Perpetual

Perpetual licenses will no longer be sold after 9/1/2024. If you have an existing perpetual license, it will continue to run its licensed version and edition of TPC, just like it always has.

If your perpetual license is prior to TPC 2024, you may be able to update it to TPC 2024. See Updates and Upgrades.

Courtesy Licenses

Courtesy licenses are no longer available (since 2018). Instead, you manage your own licenses, easily running a single-user license on more than one computer. 

See License Management
