MicroSurvey Announces MicroSurvey Layout and MicroSurvey Point Prep

(West Kelowna, BC, Canada November 7, 2012) – MicroSurvey® is pleased to announce two new products built specifically for construction layout and MEP contractors.

MicroSurvey Point Prep is an easy to use desktop program designed to help contractors prepare all of the field data they will need on a job site before leaving the office.  Users can open AutoCAD® DWG® and DXF files with Point Prep and use the many built-in tools to help them hide or eliminate unnecessary data. Point Prep makes it easy to create coordinates, input plan data from paper plans, create point patterns, compute offset points, create DTM models and prepare as-built drawings.

MicroSurvey Layout is a simple to use locating program designed specifically for contractors.  Used on its own, or in conjunction with Point Prep, MicroSurvey Layout gives you all the tools you need to layout your points accurately and easily. Also included is an as-built mode that allows you to measure existing points on a job or pickup points while computing earthwork quantities.  MicroSurvey Layout supports all major brands of total stations and GNSS receivers, and can be installed and used on numerous data collector platforms including tablet computers. The Professional version includes advanced surface and road staking for highway contractors.

“Both products can be used separately but when used together they provide the contractor with a very powerful office and field solution,” adds Jason Poitras, COO with MicroSurvey Software Inc.   Point Prep syncs easily with Layout so points and drawing data can be easily synced between both programs.

MicroSurvey invites you to experience all that Point Prep and Layout have to offer by downloading a free trial version today.  Trial versions for your desktop, tablet, or mobile device can be downloaded by visiting the MicroSurvey website.
