Carlson Introduces Hybrid+ as a Module for SurvCE/SurvPC 6.0
Carlson Software introduces Hybrid+, a new paid module for SurvCE 6.0 that allows users to survey using both GPS and Total Station at the same time with all SurvCE compatible drivers. The Hybrid+ module incorporates a series of specially designed features to take advantage of the new multi-sensor setup and add speed and efficiency to the data collection process.

Included in the module is a setup wizard which guides users through instrument setup, synchronizing postions using auto-localization, hybrid resection, or hybrid localization, then finishes with a Cross Check. Measurements from the GNSS receiver and the total station are time-synchronized for a one-tap resection measurement.

A Note From the President's Desk
by Bruce Carlson
Available new in SurvCE and SurvPC 6.0 is powerful  Hybrid+  Surveying, which is a mixed use of GNSS and robotic total station measurements. One of the many attractive features of Hybrid+ Surveying is GNSS Resection by Total Station. In July 2018, we used this feature to bring true geodetic coordinates, with true north azimuth, into our Carlson Building to test the  Carlson Boretrak .

We set the instrument up inside our building at a position where we could see through the open front door to the street and through one of the offices with an open window to the park outside.

Hybrid+ (What have they come up with now?)
by Doug Aaberg
……an advanced field solution for collecting data.

When I first learned about this new module for SurvCE it was at the Go West user’s conference in San Diego last spring. I watched a demo of what was then a beta version of the software and being the practical application kind of person I am, was mostly interested in how this new technology could be used in day to day surveying. It didn’t take long to figure that part out.

Carlson Connect now available
for AutoCAD 2019
Carlson Connect 2019 is now available on the Autodesk App Store, , for $7.99.

A collection of routines for transferring and converting data between Autodesk® Civil 3D®, and Carlson SurvCE and Carlson Survey, Carlson Connect 2019 runs within Civil 3D 2019 and uses the current Civil 3D data model.

Users can transfer point and raw data between Civil 3D and Carlson SurvCE data collection. They can import and export Civil 3D point data with the Carlson coordinate files and convert drawings with Carlson point entities to Civil 3D point objects.
