Survey Commands


TPC Desktop Professional EditionAll the features in the Personal and Premium Editions plus:

  • Least Squares Network: 2D or 3D, blunder detection, ALTA/ACSM 2011 compliant,builds network automatically from survey data, individual traverse A Priory values
  • Field-to-Finish: Draw points with styles and in point groups (traverses) set by point descriptions and draw linework by several flexible methods
  • Sorting: Use the nearest neighbor sort to generate line work for points that aren’t collected in order

LandXML


TPC Desktop Professional EditionLandXML is available ONLY in the Professional Edition:

  • Points: exchange CGPoints with coordinates, descriptions, attributes, labels, etc..
  • Parcels: TPC’s traverses are a perfect fit with LandXML’s parcels. Think Parcel = Traverse.
  • Alignments: TPC’s traverses are a perfect fit with LandXML’s alignment. You can tangents, curves, stations, PC’s, PT’s, etc..
  • Vertical Curves: TPC even exchanges vertical curves with LandXML.
  • Surfaces: TPC exchanges surfaces with LandXML, right down to the breaklines, border, area and surface points.

Surfaces


TPC Desktop Professional EditionAll the features in the Personal and Premium Editions plus:

  • Transects: Generate transects fro traverses, line, polylines
  • Slope Analysis: Tabulate surface areas in user defined slope ranges, shade them in the drawing and add them to the legend

Profiles


TPC Desktop Professional EditionAll the features in the Personal and Premium Editions plus:

  • Create Profiles: From surfaces, screen entities, points on centerline, etc.
  • Quick Profile: Display any traverse in profile mode with real-time update while adjusting centerline
  • Input-Edit Profiles: Enter profile data in dual spreadsheet and graphic window, and design in reference to controlling profile grade points
  • Draw Profiles: Draw multiple profiles on grid with auto-updating based on edits
  • Quick View: Profile settings draw the profiles for you, with line types, symbols and annotations
  • Vertical Curves: Enter balance or un-balanced vertical curves in spreadsheet or graphical window
  • Draw Vertical Curves: Choose options to draw the parts of the vertical curve and vertical PI that you want
  • Vertical Curve Generator: Generate vertical curves automatically by specifying grade breaks and lengths

Centerlines


TPC Desktop Professional EditionAll the features in the Personal and Premium Editions plus:

  • Cross Sections: Enter cross-sections in spreadsheet and graphics window
  • Draw Cross Sections: Draw single or stacked x-secs on grid with auto-updating based on edits

CAD View

TPC Desktop Professional EditionAll the features in the Premium Editions plus:

  • Send Objects: Send CAD entities to TPC’s current drawing or objects from the current drawing back to the CAD view (Professional Edition only). This is such a great way to work with a large CAD project because you can bring in just the data you need for the survey.

Files

TPC Desktop Professional EditionAll the features in the Personal and Premium Editions plus:

  • Microstation: Read and write V7 / V8 DGN files
  • DCA R10: Read and write DCA R10 files
  • Pacsoft: Read Pacsoft CRD and PDT files
  • C&G: Read C&G CRD and CGC binary files

Area

TPC Desktop Professional EditionAll the features in the Personal and Premium Editions plus:

  • Predetermined Area: Partition any lot into a smaller lot with remainder (which can also be partitioned)

GIS

TPC Desktop Professional EditionAll the features in the Personal and Premium Editions plus:

GIS = Graphical Information Systems

  • ESRI SHP: Import/Export point and linework data
  • Geo-Referenced Images: Pick the same two points on an image and the survey and TPC rotates / translates / scales the image. Image then scales with the drawing
  • Traverses and Shapes: Correlate traverses directly with shapes for easy reference

PLSS

TPC Desktop Professional EditionAll the features in the Personal and Premium Editions plus:

PLSS = Public Lands Survey System

  • True Bearings: Use mean course convergence for traversing and inversing
  • Ground Distance: Automatically scale distance from the project elevation to the ellipsoid
  • Closure and Area: Computes geodetic closure and area
  • Compute Lost Corners: Compute lost corner positions using Single / Double proportion accounting for latitudinal arcs and cardinal offsets.
  • PLSS Adjustments: Do Grant Boundary and Irregular Boundary adjustments with course-by-course details reported
  • Blunder Detection: Use the Least Squares Network analysis to show possible blunders and error ellipses
  • True Line Offsets: Compute offsets to a true line on the latitudinal arc
  • Corner Sets: Generate corner stakeout notes with true bearings and ground distance offsets
  • Geodetic vs Grid COGO: All COGO can generate true bearings and ground distance or grid bearing and distance
  • GCDB: Use GCDB point numbering if desired
  • PLSS Drafting: Label all lines with true bearings and ground distances and all lots with geodetic area
  • GMM Township Record Files: Import GMM Township record files, automatically create traverse, auto-plot
  • Medial Lines: Create Medial Lines from meanders
