Traverse PC has been providing land surveying software since 1987. Here's what some of our users have to say:

'I did not realize at the time I purchased the program that I was not only buying software, but I had purchased a company that truly cares about its customers and could "look over my shoulder" to personally help me be a successful user.' Jim Sollmi, PELS, Farmington, CT

"Probably the most cost effective and efficient surveying and mapping software I have used over the past 25 years hands down!" Charles E. Porter, Kirkland, WA

"The economics are simple. Without Traverse PC our company would not have this lucrative contract." Bob Holtkamp, AB, Canada

"The last 22 years I have previewed numerous COGO software programs, but have never found anything close to Traverse PC, and with the ability to draft maps, the program is complete." Pete Ketcham, ID

"TPC Desktop is more impressive than any AutoCAD version that I have ever used." Bryan Hartsook, VA

"I really like a point based program like TPC and the friendly drawing environment that TPC has. There is no need for a lot of extensive/expensive training to do good, efficient work with TPC." Glenn Eastman, OR

"I cannot say enough about the Managers in TPC... What a super great system!!! TPC will surely dominate all survey and CAD programs..." Jim Creasy, PA

"Traverse PC also includes the best, most personal, technical support we have ever seen in 26 years of surveying." Keith A. Heindel & Gary J. Ganjon, MD

"As a former CAD user, I have found the versatility and ease of use of Traverse PC to be a great benefit to my business." Dan Barry, NY

"[Traverse PC] is easier to use, less expensive, gets the job done, and comes from caring people who understand surveying and surveying needs." Joe Nachtrieb, CO

"Great stuff! You don't need to send me any other software, as I am perfectly happy with TPC and have no intentions of changing to anything else...and I have tried the other software." Randy Green, TN

"Once again you have set the standard for others to attain." George Anderson, NJ

"REALLY like everything I've seen so far... Things seem so much simpler & straight forward. Think you guys have something great here!" Cliff Tuck, AR

"[Traverse PC] is very user friendly and produces high quality survey plats." Fred Haidt, AL

"Traverse PC is the way to go for all Land Surveyors." Pete Jackson, CA

"While it has similarities to ACAD, . I would say [Traverse PC] is much more user (and surveyor) friendly." Scott Freshwaters, OR

"[Traverse PC has] cut my total production time down by making map preparation faster and easier." Sergio Sanchez, CA

"If you need surveying software, we highly recommend TPC be at the top of your list. We have found the product and support to provide us with the tools we need to improve our efficiency, accuracy and effectiveness when working for our clients." Keith A. Heindel & Gary J. Ganjon, MD

"Traverse PC is the one tool my little company has that does it all." Steve Parker, CO

"I find Traverse PC very easy and efficient to use.  The applications are logical and the learning curve is very short.  I would highly recommend this survey software for all land surveyors." David Holland, VA

"Yu ROCK! I am a student... ...I find the program to be very user friendly. Traverse PC is helpful with understanding how data is used to make decisions in a survey, as well as providing a visual image illustrating what the data collected is trying to show." Joel Kayser, NY

Traverse PC Land Survey Software

Import / Export :User-defined import and export of point data along with conversions with specific other formats
Point Properties :Draw points with settings for symbols, labels, layers and style
Alpha/Numberic :Alpha numberic point lables
Point Protection : Lock coordinates, elevations and descriptions

Traverse Formats :Format the Traverse View they way you want
Traverse Groups :Traverse groups help you organize survey data on the fly
Traverse Manager :Copy and duplicate existing traverses or create new ones
Traverse Settings :Let TPC draw the map for you using our Quick View™ technology
Angle Sets :Use both direct and repeat angle methods
Raw Data :TPC retains the data you enter even after an adjustment - just recompute any time
Closure :One-step closure check, automatic closure
Elevations:Use benchmarks, +/- target heights and any combination of vertical angles, offsets and stadia
Automatic COGO :The things you do all the time, like extending a line, inserting a mid-point, entering a horizontal curve happen almost without thinking about it
Shared Boundaries :Recall points from any other traverse to share a common line
Remote Observations :Shoot as close as you can get and enter perpendicular, linear, angular or vertical offsets
Insert Points :Insert points by point label range, proximity, description, etc

Standards: All your favorites like intersect, rotate and translate and random inverse.
Corner Offsets :One-step offsets for building corners
Lot Setbacks : One-step lot setbacks
Offsets to Line or Curve :Compute the cardinal or perpendicular offset of any point to a line or curve
Multiple Points : One-step fill in points along a curb line with interplated elevations
Visible COGO: Instantly plot any COGO point then watch it update automatically as you adjust the COGO data
Multi-level Undo : Create new COGO points or update existing points and if it doesn't do what you want - Undo it.
Equation Parsing : Enter 10..11/2 to recall half the distance from point 10 to 11 or enter 10..11+90 to recall the bearing from point 10 to 11 and add 90° to it. No need for a calculator here
Summary Button : Add COGO results to a report for a record of what you did then add your own notes
COGO Graphics : One button generates a drawing showing the COGO results so you pick the points you want
Predictive Data : Start typing the point label and TPC displays matching points so you can pick the one you want
