Introducing the Carlson CR2 & CR5 Fully Robotic Total Station
The new Carlson CR2 & CR5 robotic total staions offer advanced positioning technology that offer the most efficient way to survey. With Stream360's Scout, Track and Aim you have eveything you need for a one-person field crew.
Scout360 - Scans the entire working area within seconds to quickly find you.
Track360 - Provides continuous tracking of targets. Once locked onto a prism, the instrument will remain precisely targeted onto the moving prism.
AIM360 - The telescope is precisely aimed at any prism, without needing to look through the teloscope. Measurements are preformed automatically with constant and repeatable accuracy.
Imagine an instrument that provides you with a real flow of work in terms of efficiency, precision and comfort. There is no need for assistance, it is quick to set up and has many easy-to-use functions, simplifying the entire process even more. The Carlson CR2 & CR5 models provide everything you ever desired in your daily work. Wide angle search technology quickly locates the survey pole and once locked in, it continues to follow the prism as you move. Fully automatic measurements are executed by the press of a button on your remote controller.
Paired with a Carlson Allegro MX with Carlson SurvCE data collection software provides true one-man robotic surveying with complete control of all measurement tasks from the survey pole or from the total station.

Introducing the Carlson Supervisor+ GPS Tablet Computer
The Carlson Supervisor Just Got More Powerful
MAYSVILLE, Kentucky, U.S.A. — The “SuperG,” the Carlson Supervisor+ GPS Tablet, is here. It’s Carlson’s popular Supervisor tablet computer, a super rugged tablet PC that can be used anywhere, upgraded to include an integrated high-precision GNSS receiver and providing wireless support for Bluetooth, 802.11, GSM and CDMA.
“The Carlson Supervisor has been field proven for more than 15 months now and has been a popular Windows-compatible tablet computer to be used in the field, a truck, the office, really anywhere,” says Bruce Carlson, president of Carlson Software.
The Carlson Supervisor is designed to work on more total stations, robots, GPS systems than any other solution. Both the Carlson Supervisor tablet and the new SuperG offer the industry’s largest data collector screen – a full seven inches – that is sunlight viewable. They also supply the industry’s fastest data collector processor with 64 Gb of memory and 2 Gb of RAM. And this is all on a PC that weighs just 2.42 pounds.
Developed by Carlson Software to compliment its comprehensive line of land development and mining software, the SuperG allows surveyors, contractors, builders, engineers and many others to bring their office to the field or to the project, and vice versa, all live.
The Carlson Supervisor and the SuperG can both be used with Carlson SurvPC, which is Carlson’s popular SurvCE data collection software, enhanced and produced to work on a PC, and with Carlson Grade Supervisor, an easy-to-use software made for construction grade management.
SurvPC, which can operate natively on Esri®, .dxf,. dwg, .dxf. and .dgn, is fully integrated with Carlson’s office products, Carlson Survey, Civil, Hydrology and GIS. As an added bonus, these office software options can also be taken into the field utilizing the Supervisor or the SuperG.
Carlson Grade Supervisor allows site supervisors to get daily, weekly, or anytime volumes, track real-time cut/fill, plus both collect and stake points. Its ability to let grade contractors know their grade instantly means that accurate surface volumes can be determined. It’s also proven to help construction companies tighten their bid specs by providing fast TOPO capabilities so that volumes are computed for estimation before any dirt is moved.
The unit is fully upgradeable enabling users to start with the Carlson Supervisor+ base unit, which works with existing receivers, and then upgrade when the time is right. There is an option to purchase a three-year replacement warranty that covers everything except out-and-out abuse of the unit.
All versions of Carlson SurvCE 2.56 and later now have updated drivers and feature sets available to work on the Leica CS10 and CS15, Field Controllers. “We think this will be a very popular combination,” says Bruce Carlson, president of Carlson Software, “Leica Viva with SurvCE.”

C&G Land Survey Software Included!
This Carlson product includes C&G Survey — like getting two programs in one! The menus for each survey solution will run side by side. If you are a C&G user, you will also get Carlson Survey. If you are a Carlson Survey user, you will also get C&G.
All of the 2012 Carlson products now support Autodesk's 2012 DWG format. If you are working with AutoCAD 2012, we have you covered.
Surveyors will use the point-based CAD/COGO commands extensively, since it has more of them than any other product available today. Add the one-step contouring, volume calculation and construction stakeout features built into this innovative product, and surveyors can do all their mapping and construction stakeout — from start to finish — without having to resort to using any other software.
Carlson Survey can be run as a stand-alone product (with the embedded IntelliCAD product) or on top of an existing AutoCAD-based application (AutoCAD, AutoCAD Map, AutoCAD Civil, AutoCAD Civil 3D, etc.) version 2000 on up. For a less expensive alternative to buying AutoCAD, try the Carlson Survey with Embedded AutoCAD.
Used together with Carlson's popular data collection program, Carlson SurvCE, and you will get powerful, effective, and accurate field-to-finish.
Thanks to the ability to code all entries in Carlson SurvCE, symbols, points, and linework are drawn automatically.
In fact, SurvCE serves as an efficient preview screen for the final drawing -- if it looks good on the data collector, it will look good in Carlson Survey.
