Carlson SurvCE ver 2.58 Localisation

Hi can anyone please help. I am splitting a large cadastral layout into managable portions. After doing the initial site localisation I want to use this same localisation file for each of the portions as separate surveys without revisiting all the points used in the localisation yet starting each portion as a new job. Is this possible? I thought of doing the localisation as a job then saving it to the pc, then renaming this file for each of the portions of 100+ plots being surveyed

DTM files with Carlson

I am wondering if anyone has much experience with Digital Terrain Models. Is DTM a file format? Does Carlson support those files? Can I create a DTM with Carlson?I am interested in creating a set of plan contours for a proposed landfill and would love to be able to load those proposed contours into our Trimble TSC2 data collector. I know how to create the contours and the TIN map, but how do I create a file that can be loaded into our collectors.Am I completely lost, or has any one else tried…

  • Hey friends.

    The SurvCE release notes 2012 document is available at Carlson knowledge base and the SurvCE 2.60 too.

  • Hi everyone,

    It is great for us, SurvCE users, to upgrade the software at least two times per year, but it would be greatest if the manual, or at least some notes, could be upgraded at the same time, in this way we can take advantage of the new features easily.

    I am using the SurvCE 2.56 version, but the manual I have is the 10/21/2010 revision. Any help in this matter will be appreciated thanks.
