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.
With an anticipated January 1, 2012 release date, Carlson Software is offering customers purchasing the current 2011 version a free upgrade to the 2012 version when released. So, don't hold off purchasing your copy of Carlson Survey 2011 with OEM AutoCAD©.

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.”
Carlson Survey 2012, released in September 2011, gives users increased 3D visualization, extensive new 3D coding in its industry-renowned Field-to-Finish, and the ability to produce customized, more professional reports among its many additional improvements.
The number one office software solution for surveyors in the United States, Carlson Survey provides support in its 2012 release for AutoCAD® 2012 and comes with IntelliCAD® 7.0 built-in. This is in addition to working on AutoCAD versions 2000 and up.
“The biggest improvement in Carlson Survey 2012 is in its 3D aspects,” says David Carlson, V.P. of Development for Carlson Software. “The 3D Viewer has updates including showing 3D objects, the symbol library has a collection of 3D trees, vehicles, people and utilities, and Field-to-Finish has new 3D coding.”
These, combined with a new and improved Report Formatter, makes for more customized and more impressive reports.
With the interest in Carlson software design solutions growing around the world, the development team at Carlson has added support for more coordinate systems and for angles in GON format, requests from international users.
“They’ll find 14 more projection methods, hundreds more pre-defined projection definitions and 11 more built-in ellipsoid definitions,” adds Carlson. This is combined with added support for Carlson SurvCE CSL and Esri® PRJ projections definitions.
Carlson Survey is made exclusively for surveyors. It provides a full tool kit with everything from network least squares to surface modeling. Users get the ability to work seamlessly between the office and the field and they can establish company-wide design styles to ease and speed their work.
Along with Carlson Survey for 2012, Carlson Software is also releasing the 2012 versions of Carlson Civil, Carlson Hydrology, Carlson GIS, Carlson Point Cloud, Carlson Mining, Carlson Takeoff, and Carlson Natural Regrade, each featuring its own industry-specific improvements.
