Carlson End-of-Year Specials End on 12/31/19
Carlson has released special End-of-Year pricing on hardware and software. From now until December 31, 2019, industry professionals have the opportunity to purchase the latest versions of popular Carlson products and bundles.

Don't forget the 2019 Section 179 deductions! Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year. That means that if you buy (or lease) a piece of qualifying equipment, you can deduct the FULL PURCHASE PRICE from your gross income. It’s an incentive created by the U.S. government to encourage businesses to buy equipment and invest in themselves.

What’s the Point of the End-of-Year Specials?
by Steve Cummings
When someone, maybe my neighbor or the clerk at the convenience store, says to me, “Happy New Year!” — my first thought is always, “Oh, man, it’s Carlson’s End of Year Special time again. I wonder what new tools I’ll get this year! I wonder what great new functionality I’ll have!”

At the end of every year, we here at Carlson offer  “End of Year Specials,”  where we substantially discount software packages. We do this for two reasons. One, we want customers to buy supplemental packages that streamline workflows and, two, we want to encourage people to try a module or package that they have been considering but aren’t quite sure about.

Carlson Workshops
by Doug Aaberg
The end of fall routinely means cold weather is on its way (at least for me) and the beginning of another season of workshops, conferences and training. As I write this blog, I just completed teaching at a three-day workshop in Raleigh, North Carolina. There were somewhere around 150 surveyors and engineers attending this workshop. As I watched those taking notes and asking questions, it dawned on me how valuable it was to have everyone in one room and that we, as a community, don’t do it enough!

Over this particular workshop, subjects such as managing point files, processing field data, using SurvCE/PC in the field, creating subdivisions, GIS and Point Clouds were all covered at a surprisingly deep level. Furthermore, all classes taught were very instructional and approved by the State of North Carolina for individual continuing education credits.
