Carlson Software training programes for corporates are specifically designed with productivity in mind. Effort is made to cater for all levels of skill aiming at the basic user in Getting Started courses and the experienced CAD user in the Master courses. The courses are designed to improve knowledge in the utilisation of the functions built in to the software. There will be occasions where the trainer will be unfamiliar with a command or function, however there are experienced professionals available to assist us.

1. Getting Started – User training for Carlson SurvCE and SurvPC software

2. Introduction to Field to Finish

Suggested Retail Price: *US$25.00/person/course

To appreciate the benefits of Carlson Office software and the Field Data Collection software it is most important that both field and office staff have an understanding of the Field to Finish process. Working together with one set of configuration files is the secret of sucess.

Carlson Office products process the data collected in the field using a common CRD file. We also develop the CRD file where the codes used in the field to describe points and those used in the office are mirrored to ensure an automated transfer of survey data to the office drawing.

We begin the jouney by discussing the FLD file and how we develop a universal set of codes to satisfy the surveying process.

From there we learn how we use this information though to importing the data from the field data controller to the office software; taking the data from Field to Finish.

This training will open the doors to discovering the power of Carlson software. The first step in an exciting and rewarding journey using the software.

It is recommended that all participants take the time to watch the Field to Finish movie supplied on the Carlson software USB memory stick before participating in this training program (the Field to Finish movie is 1 hour duration).

 

3. Mastering SurvCE and SurvPC

Suggested Retail Price: *US$50.00/person/day

We begin the day working through the various screens and experiencing the short cuts available to make the surveying process a rewarding experience.

We will set up a Total Station and a GPS RTK system to allow a comparison between the technologies.

We discover the use of imported files from the office software and preparing the data for a survey.

We localise a project and perform the necessary transformations, calibrating the system ready for a survey.

A small survey using a GPS or Total Station will be conducted to gather data to experience the complete process attending to the comprehensive range of questions as we go about the day.

The training procedure will take 3-5 hours.

A break of 30 minutes for lunch.

The training program re-starts with a question and answer period allowing us to regurgitate our morning of set up and survey.

Back at the office we download the data collected in the field and review it in a speadsheet where we check for errors and wrongly named points and line features.

If time permits we import the file into a Carlson office program to peform a Field to Finish.
