Simplifying Survey Engineering Drwaings
The rapid advancements in the field of software development have not left any field untouched and there is perhaps no better example for it than in the field of civil and structural engineering. Several types of software packages are now aiding engineers in enabling efficient construction practices. E Surveying Solutions is developing software packages for Survey Engineering and have developed easy to use solutions for Section Generation, Interpolation, Contouring, Earthwork Calculation, and Converter Survey data from Total Station data into CAD Drawing. The software solutions offered by the company are extremely beneficial to Surveyors/Consulting firms/Infrastructure Companies/Engineering colleges/CAD Services/CAD Training Institutes and Govt. Organizations.

Section & Interpolation
Using ESS Products Section Module, 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; section presentation can be highly customized with features like changing scales along Horizontal and Vertical directions. Earthwork calculations can be done between any two layer data and the software generates complete Area and Volume reports. Interpolation can be done either using triangulation or using 3D lines. Output can be generated quickly as Designing both Horizontal and Vertical Alignment is simplified.

Using E Contours, contours can be generated 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.

Using E Earthwork, 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. It generates all the required section drawings instantly along with calculation, and area and volume reports can be generated in Excel.

TopoDraw Using E 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 draw.

E Survey Lisps
E Survey Lisps is a collection of several extremely interesting small user-friendly programs written for meeting survey drawing requirement. By using E Survey Lisps editing time of Survey Drawings can be brought down by up to 50%.

E Survey Lisps
  • Works with 4 CAD software AutoCAD/ZWCAD/GStarCAD/BricsCAD
  • Software trial CD is available with complete video tutorial
  • The entire software trial version can be downloaded from www.esurveying.net

E Surveying Solutions products are also supplied to Engineering Colleges as it bridges the gap between what is taught in college and what the industry practices. It is economically priced and users can buy only the required modules. Under ‘Student Offer’ students can avail up to 90% discount.
