Technology-enabled Survey Solutions
In this age of computer advancement, everything has to be quick and accurate. Software related to survey engineering drawings not only allows designers and surveyors to create quick and accurate drawings but also offers very cost effective solutions. ESurveying Softech India Pvt. Ltd. A survey software development company provides software tools to facilitate Section Generation, Contouring, Converting Survey Data from total station into CAD drawings and a host of other surveying operations. It is useful for survey engineers, consulting firms, infrastructure companies, engineering colleges, CAD operators, CAD training Institutes and Government organizations.
The software is designed in such a way that even operators and engineers with basic CAD software knowledge can generate required outputs without getting into lengthy trainings, memorizing operation sequences or navigating through multiple windows.

The software package includes six modules:
Section & Interpolation
Using ESurvey Section module of the ESurveying package, section related to road/railway lines/irrigation canal can be created either from Excel data or from CAD drawings. Available section data can be interpolated along any alignment. Data can even be imported from field book. Section module allows the users to modify the sections graphically giving highly customized Section presentation with features like changing scales along horizontal and vertical directions. Earthwork calculations can also be done between any 2 layer data and the software generates complete area and volume reports. Interpolation can be done either using 3D lines. Output can be generated quickly as designing both horizontal alignment and vertical alignment is simplified.

Using ESurvey Contour, Contours can be generated at specified levels. The software also generates grid levels along with contour generation. Moreover, all this can be done from within CAD Software. This software includes attractive modules like area and volume report depending on contour area.

The ESurvey Earthwork Module allows finding the volume of cutting/filling for a given set of data at a given elevation or it can find the earthwork Quantity for any two surfaces. It generates all the required section drawings instantly along with calculation and area and volume reports(in Excel Format)

Using ESurvey TopoDraw, TopoMaps can be created using Easting, Northing and Elevation Data available in Excel or CSV file. Normally all the total station instruments output the data in CSV format, i.e. Serial Number, Easting, Northing, Elevation and Code. Using TopoDraw module converting this data into drawing with blocks is very easy as it will automatically insert required block diagrams in their respective places while generating the drawing.

ESurvey Lisps
ESurvey Lisps is a collection of several extremely intersecting, small, user-friendly programs written for meeting Survey Drawing requirement. By using ESurvey Lisps editing time of Survey Drawings can be reduced almost 50%.
