Carlson SurvCE

Carlson SurvCE is a complete data collection system for Real Time (RTK) GPS and Total Stations with in-field coordinate geometry. It supports the widest range of popular and new release RTK GPS and conventional/ robotic total stations.

Major New Features and Improvements: SurvCE 6.0

  • SurvCE now offers the Hybrid+ Survey module to survey with both GPS and Total Station at the same time. Visit for more details.
  • Log Raw GPS has been redesigned to allow static logging without configuring an RTK Rover or Base. The process has been streamlined for ease of use.
  • SurvCE now offers an advanced total station search icon to allow selection of search type from inside of any live survey screen.
  • GNSS Analysis has been updated to the 2017 version.
  • SurvCE now supports a laser pointer icon in all live survey screens for any total station with a laser pointer.
  • SurvCE now supports web map overlays from Google, Open Street Maps and ArcGIS REST. SurvPC additionally supports user-defined Web Map Servers (WMS/WMTS/TMS).
  • SurvCE can now read and export PRJ projection files.
  • SurvCE now includes Snap options inside of store points to facilitate drawing in the field as part of the survey process. An UNDO option has also been included.
  • Total station control icons Search, Lock/Track, Target, and Laser Pointer will now be available in more screens.
  • A new status icon will now show the status of the instrument connection from all screens.
  • SurvCE now includes a “GIS Inspector” feature in the Map screen that allows viewing and editing GIS attributes as linework is created and edited.
  • SurvCE now supports obstructed view stakeout mode.
  • SurvCE now includes a “Surface Inspector” for elevation difference which allows storing and staking points from the surface as well as viewing cut/fill to the surface using Snaps.
  • SurvCE now displays a red tolerance bar to indicate that a measurement is currently outside of a user defined tolerance.
  • SurvCE now supports an automatic backsight check in the joystick screen.
  • Auto by Interval when level now stores the most level reading which was recorded during the required level tolerance period.
  • SurvCE now supports continuous reflectorless measurement for total stations which support the feature.
  • SurvCE now offers the ability to demo the roading module on an already registered copy of the software.
  • SurvCE now supports a two-prism pole in the 2-Point offset routine.


Just a few of the powerful features to help you get your job done faster and better:

  • Advanced Roading: favored by U.S. DOTs and heavy highway contractors around the world
  • Cutting-edge functionality for staking intersections and cul-de-sacs using Carlson Road Network files
  • Optional Field-to-Finish: Create drawings intuitively and automatically as you work, saving you time back in the office
  • Highly graphical and intuitive user interface is designed ‘by surveyors for surveyors’
  • Strong GIS features for accurate data capture, including attribute data and seamless linking to Esri®
  • Easy data exchange due to rich support of CAD file formats and .dwg, .dgn, .shp
  • More field capabilities with quick and easy volume calculation and ability to generate points from polylines
  • Cut/Fill stakeout using surface files
  • Camera integration allowing assignment of picture to points or lines
  • Export directly in KML format for fast control in Google Earth
  • True versatility: SurvCE run on hundreds of GPS and total station models in service today, including Altus, Ashtech, Carlson, Geomax, Leica, Pentax, Sokkia, Spectra-Precision, Stonex, Topcon, and more. See full list at
  • SurvCE are available in more than two dozen languages: English, Spanish, German, French, French (Canadian), Russian, Portuguese, Czech, Dutch, Chinese, Korean, Greek, Italian, Polish, Hungarian, Swedish, Latvian and more.


SurvCE 6.0 deliver on accuracy and efficiency:

  • Enhanced Search icon now available in all live survey screens with access to multiple search methods for TS/RTS
  • Voice prompting In Stakeout allows users to keep their eyes on the environment while staking
  • Google, Open Street Maps, Esri® Maps, and your own WMS overlays now available in the field
  • GIS Inspector allows instant access to GIS attributing in the map screen
  • Surface Inspector enables easy comparison of plan vs. asbuilt in elevation difference, making it simpler to store and stake the points that matter
  • Obstructed Point Stakeout allows guided staking of unreachable points by marking azimuth and distance
  • Automatic Backsight Check in the joystick screen makes it easier to check your setup at any time
  • GPS Tolerance Band instantly indicates when a tolerance is exceeded in live survey screens


All-new Hybrid+ module combines the power of RTS and GNSS providing the most reliable and fast survey techniques on the market:

  • Mix and match any RTS and GNSS from Carlson’s vast driver library
  • GPS Search is faster than any search method available
  • Follow Me keeps the total station pointed where you need it by continuously tracking the GNSS location
  • Smart Lock detects when you are slowing down to take a measurement and automatically locks on the prism—ready when you are
  • Smart Staking provides directions from the GNSS when the total station position isn’t available, then automatically locks back on the prism when you reach your destination
  • Backup Tracking — GPS position is automatically shown when total station is not tracking
  • GNSS Sensors work with the total station to allow e-level in total station mode and automatic correction of tilted poles
