Carlson SurvPC 7 Now Available

Maysville, Kentucky, U.S.A. — The latest version of Carlson Software’s industry-leading field software, SurvPC 7, is now available.


The new release, boasting numerous improvements to existing features and many completely new capabilities, brings greater efficiency, enhanced data visibility, and a smoother user experience to land surveyors, engineers, and construction and GIS professionals.

“SurvPC 7 is a major update that puts more power in the hands of people working on site,” said Sarah Winter, Director of Carlson’s Field Software Programming Division. “It’s really a big step forward in field software, done without sacrificing the familiar efficient look and structure our users know.”

The new version comes loaded with new functionality, from the advanced averaging features that help users improve their GPS solutions and satisfy stringent survey requirements for GPS-collected data, to better reports, least squares adjustment in the field, and Esri ArcGIS capabilities. Completely new modules have been introduced for utilizing BIM files in the field, monitoring, and tunneling.

The advances in SurvPC 7 take advantage of the processing power of Windows 10 or 11. Carlson SurvCE, which runs on the discontinued Windows CE mobile platform, will continue to be supported, but will not receive major updates past version 6. SurvCE users will have the ability to crossgrade to SurvPC on compatible hardware.
