SurvCE 4.0 has been released and is now ready for download. Constantly being upgraded, SurvCE 4.0 gives users the option to import text in drawings in addition to blocks; allows GPS base records from the raw file to be processed into the CRD file; and offers a new 2D sketch polyline and snap option.

The Carlson SurvCE 4.0 upgrade is free for those who upgraded their SurvCE software to 3.0. For those moving from any SurvCE 2.0 versions, the cost is $300. The price for 4.0 for those upgrading from an initial purchase of SurvCE 3.0 over this past year is $150. Literally 100s of enhancements have been built into SurvCE 4.0.

Here’s one of the newest aspects of Carlson SurvCE—SurvCE can read the GIS feature/attribute structure from a client’s Esri GIS geodatabase, collect additional survey-grade data to that schema, and write it back as ArcGIS compatible data in a single seamless workflow. No office software required! See it in action in this webinar, along with an introductory discussion by Brent Jones of Esri about the new opportunities for surveyors in the GIS marketplace.
