Leland Fischer PLS USFS and Traverse PC

“Friends at Traverse PC, “Just wanted let you all know that I will retire on January 3rd after nearly 41 years with the Forest Service.  Traverse PC has been a part of my Land Surveying Tool box since late 1987 or early 1988.  The first version (DOS) I ran on a 20 megabyte hard drive PC.  Those were the days.  Thanks for developing a great tool (software package) that has assisted me in providing 1st class products to my Forest Service clients. “Again thank you for your support and those occasional personal interactions on the phone, conferences and workshops.  Also, I thought I would share a photo of myself decked out in Traverse PC bling.” Leland Fischer, PLS, U.S. Forest Service, Wenatchee, WA

Gary Ganjon and Keith Heindel of Hanover Land Services in Westminster, MD

Congratulations to Gary Ganjon and Keith Heindel of Hanover Land Services in Westminster, MD for taking TWO first place ribbons in the plat competition at the Maryland Society of Surveyors Fall Conference 2018! They took first place in the ALTA/NSPS category as well as in the Location Drawings category with their drawings from TPC Desktop! “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,

“TPC is perfectly suited for surveyors of all types”

Jack Kesler Trains BLM for Lode Mining Claims

I am a Mineral Surveyor and have been one for some time. The BLM retained me to teach BLM surveyors at the National training center in Phoenix the methods of dependent resurveys of Lode mining claims. I put the plat together as a demo for my talks and lectures on how to follow the notes. It also served as a lead in to why TPC is perfectly suited for surveyors of all types. The NTS training sessions were designed to explain how the original MS surveys were executed in reality to aid the BLM surveyors in their dependent resurveys. Most of the dependent surveys here in our county were done poorly with reference to compass rule relocation as opposed to the grant boundary method. I worked for a Mineral Surveyor while at the University of Arizona. I received my appointment in the early 1980’s.

“Traverse PC is perhaps the most innovative survey/analysis/drawing software by NOT trying to innovate (change) how surveys are done!”

Traverses, Drawings and the Traverses Manager

“Traverse PC is perhaps the most innovative survey/analysis/drawing software by NOT trying to innovate (change) how surveys are done! It uses data in groups, made logically as a surveyor thinks, called ‘TRAVERSES’. It increases the surveyor’s confidence, drawing accuracy, and in the end, productivity.” J. Anthony Cavell, PLS, CFedS, Baton Rouge, LA Traverses, Drawings and the Traverses Manager

Legal Description Phrases

“To all of the staff at Traverse P.C. : I had to take a moment to thank you all, for the great new feature, Phrase Driven Legal Descriptions.

“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
