Topcon SurveyMaster version 1.1

                                        Integrated surveying, CAD drafting and ‘field-to-finish’ utility

LIVERMORE, Calif. – April 2, 2009 – Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) has released a new version of its CAD-based survey software, SurveyMaster version 1.1. SurveyMaster is a complete survey software solution to manage job site and surveying data efficiently while providing a deliverable print or plot. Designed by surveyors, it provides the user with survey specific routines, traverse adjustment and CAD drafting tools in one product.

Scott Langbein, TPS senior product marketing manager, said, “SurveyMaster version 1.1 provides new and improved features that add to the program’s already impressive functionality. Input from customers and dealers, from the United States and globally, formed the basis for this upgrade.”

SurveyMaster offers the user many options for office configurations. It can handle critical data efficiently and the application can be taken with the surveyor anywhere he goes. The program is contained and runs on a single USB key making it easily transportable from computer to computer. An optional Network version and/or PC installation are also available.

SurveyMaster can be synchronized with Topcon TopSURV 7 field controller software. “SurveyMaster and TopSURV 7 synchronize automatically,” Langbein said, “making data upload and download seamless. Version 1.1 is designed to give TopSURV 7.2 users an advantage in the office but also supports data input from many third-party programs. It provides all the drafting and surveying tools for any surveyor to complete their project on time and under budget.”

In addition, SurveyMaster acts as an extension to field software for TopSURV users. Directly open and save TopSURV jobs, export points, linework and road design data to TopSURV from any open SurveyMaster project. Users can optionally configure SurveyMaster to synchronize with TopSURV every time a connection is made.

SurveyMaster is a stand-alone software program that has no costly subscriptions, annual engine upgrades, or requirements to run additional CAD software. Langbein said, “Once surveyors use SurveyMaster, they will discover there is no need for high-priced CAD packages that contain only a fraction of the functions a surveyor actually needs. SurveyMaster is truly designed for the surveyor.”

Langbein said, “An important option that version 1.1 adds is a new network least squares adjustment routine. With the new version, surveyors can process and adjust complicated network surveys as well as simple traverses using a rigorous least squares adjustment with full reporting of the results.”

Features of SurveyMaster version 1.1 include:

    -- Improved TopSURV 7.2 compatibility;
    -- Improved synchronization utility;
    -- Network least squares adjustment;
    -- Pointless creation mode;
    -- Floating network license installation;
    -- AutoDesk Real DWG© technology;
    -- Creation and deletion of points from entities;
    -- Show entities with attached images;
    -- Hayes Cogo import; and
    -- Improved trim/extend and other drafting functions.
