GIS LIVERMORE, CA — Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) regularly announces field control software updates and enhancements. The unveiling of TopSURV 7 is different.
Topcon™s all-new, problem-solving software package utilizes a unique, large graphical and intuitive user interface. TopSURV 7 features map view data collection, graphical stakeout, conveniently stores configurations and is available for Windows PC or CE Mobile systems.
Large, easy-to-understand icons (survey, edit, import, export and view map, among other functions) dominate the bright display. Meshed with Topcon™s new FC-2200 controller, TopSURV 7 is housed in a rugged handheld controller with alphanumeric keyboard and built-in, high-resolution camera.
Scott Langbein, TPS product marketing manager, said, It™s now possible to survey with speed, convenience and absolute accuracy. A surveyor can create, edit, upload and download data faster than ever before using advanced data management technology.â€
He also said that regardless of how many instruments a surveyor might use, TopSURV 7 stores configuration files for every Topcon instrument. In other words, switching from a Legacy E to a GPT-3100W is fast and simple. There™s no wasted time configuring baud rates or connection settings,â€ he said.
The bottom line is that you can get to work quicker, perform more functions and save time. TopSURV 7 simplifies surveying.â€
Redesigned from the ground up, TopSURV 7 is not just an upgrade, Langbein said. It™s a whole new experience from field to finish. From its all-new, super-efficient database engine to its near-universal exporting abilities, TopSURV 7 delivers the power to simplify and speed your data collection and delivery.â€
The new database engine has cut file size by an amazing 60 percent,â€ Langbein said. Its new graphical user interface and intuitive operation create a user-friendly environment. Icon driven, with no more than four clicks to get to any operation, TopSURV 7 is easy to learn and easier to use.â€
He said TopSURV 7 supports all major file formats and lets the user visually create custom codes and ordering to ensure a perfect transfer every time.â€
