Carlson SurvCE, Roading, Issues with Reference Object

Carlson SurvCE ver 2.58 Localisation

Hi can anyone please help. I am splitting a large cadastral layout into managable portions.

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

  • 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.
