User-Friendly, Affordabel Survey Software


User-Friendly, Affordabel Survey Software
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 operation. It is useful for survey engineers, consulting firms, infrastructure companies, engineering colleges, CAD Operators, CAD training institute 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 training, memorizing operations sequences or navigating through multiple windows
The software package includes six modules:

Section & Interpolation
Using ESurvey Section module of the ESurveying package, sections 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 user to modify the sections graphically giving highly customized Section presentation with features like changing scale along horizontal and vertical directions. Earthwork calculations can also be done between any 2 layers data and the software generates complete area and volume reports. Interpolation can be done either using triangulation or using 3D line. Output can be generated quickly as designing both horizontal alignment and vertical is simplified.

Contour
Using ESurvey contour, contour can be generate at specified levels. The software also generates grid level 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.

Earthwork
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 quantities for any two surfaces. It generates all the required section drawings instantly along with calculation and area and volume reports (in Excel Format).

TopoDraw
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 diagram 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 Drawing can be reduced almost 50% .

User-friendly, affordable survey software

Historically, Civil Engineers were among the first users of Information Technology to increase productivity, back in the 60s and 70s some of the first computer programs written were FORTRAN programs for Civil Engineering calculations, including structural design, geometry calculations, and CPM applications for project management.

The survey engineering field has also seen a similar growth in the past few decades. There are a few software products being developed for these fields in the recent years. Among them is a well established firm, ESurveying Softech India Pvt. Ltd., which develop survey related software available at affordable prices and user friendly interfaces. Their product packages include a varied range of applications including section generation, interpolation, contouring, earthwork calculation, KML, etc. and backs it up with equally quick and reliable customer support.

7 modules

The ESurveying products are split into four main packages including 7 modules, which can be bought individually or as a complete package. This helps you to choose only the required features from the range of products, which allows you to spend less time in learning as well as makes the software cost effective.

Sections module

Using the Sections module, Sections related to Road/Railway Lines/Irrigation Canal can be created either from Excel data or from CAD drawing. Section Module allows the user to modify the sections graphically. Available Section data can be interpolated along any alignment. Data can even be imported from Field book.

Contour Module

The Contour module allows you to generate contours at specified intervals and specified levels. The software also generates grid levels along with the contour generation and can be done from within CAD Software. This software includes attractive modules like Area and volume report depending on Contour area.

Earthwork Module

Using the Earthwork module, earthwork calculation can be done very quickly. It allows finding the volume of cutting/filling for a given set of data at a given elevation or it can find the earthwork quantities for any two surfaces.

TopoDraw module

The TopoDraw module allows you to create Topomaps using Easting, Northing and Elevation data available in Excel or CSV File. Using TopoDraw module converting total station data into drawing with blocks is made very easy.

ESurvey

The ESurvey Lisp module is a very useful tool for all CAD users as it provides a collection of tailor made lisp routines developed exclusively for CAD users working on Survey drawings. The KML module allows you to publish your CAD drawing to Google Earth.

These products work with different CAD packages including AutoCAD, ZWCAD, BricsCAD and GStarCAD and allow you to work with only a selected set of required commands without learning thousands of commands provided by CAD packages. These products also work independent of CAD software for those who are not familiar with any kind of CAD packages.
