Top 5 Software Apps for Professional Land Surveyors

Summary: Surveyors have been working with the elements of geometry, trigonometry, regression analysis, physics, engineering, metrology, programming languages, and the law. These work require software that offers unique strengths that will make data collection on land survey jobs easier and more efficient for land surveyors and other professionals.

Surveying has been an element in development since the beginning of recorded history. Most forms of construction require it. It is used in transport, communication, mapping, and legal boundaries for land ownership. It’s understandable that being a land surveyor can be a tough job, especially if you don’t have the right software or apps to help you out a little.

It’s not an issue to be worried about though. In this technocratic world, various Softwares are making surveying simple. Here are some of the windows mobile, windows embedded handheld, Android, and Windows 10 software options for land surveyors.

SurvCE

SurvCE is a full-featured land survey field data collection software that packages all the power and flexibility you need into just one application. It is designed for Windows mobile devices. The software features command style data entry and maps view to capture and stake out land survey data.

The application supports a variety of file types, including CAD and GIS data. It creates drawing intuitively and automatically as you work, saving you time back in the office. The camera integration allows the assignment of a picture to point or line. Export directly to KML format for faster control in Google Earth.

FieldGenius

FieldGenius by MicroSurvey is a field data collection software, that includes dynamic data panels synchronized with the map views. The modern and easy to use, user-interface provides a nostalgic vibe for existing FieldGenius users while offering new tools, simplify workflow and readily available data that surveyors require at the point of work to make informed decisions in the field. 

It provides a variety of roading and surfacing functions for land survey. It features a code-free 3D line drawing, advanced total station controls, and real-time digital terrain modeling, along with real-time digital support.

X-PAD Survey:

X-PAD Survey comes from Geomax, and due to this, the productivity in the field is doubled. Also, it is highly flexible and its easy user-interface and highly innovative content provide a great experience for the user. You get Total station survey, GPS, and stakeout with all the topographic and cadastral functions. Yes. all of these, which were present earlier in the desktop software. 

This particular application also includes taking notes that integrates position data with photos, voice comments, and typed notes.

GeoPro Field 2.0:

GeoPro Field by Sokkia is a next-generation software solution for total stations, robotics, GNSS rover system. Operators can easily take advantage of fast field coding for field-to-finish efficiency, as well as advanced stake out functionality for site engineers. 

It includes real-time imaging behind operators’ points, lines, and imported design files. Other features include advanced support for a broad array of file types including import from Autodesk point layout. 

Access:

Access by Trimble is designed to support your everyday workflows. It’s a data collection software that supports topographic surveys, staking, and control. It has graphical staking of points, lines, arcs, and alignments from active maps. The integrated surveying technology combines optical scanning and GNSS data plus images. It features built-in workflow applications for a variety of common project types like roads, pipelines, and tunnels.

Conclusion:
These are a few of the most commonly used land surveying software and gives you a bit of information to be able to look into some systems to a further extent. A land survey professional will need faster and efficient software tools to help with their jobs and generate accurate land survey drafting results.
