Field-to-finish Survey Data Management


An All-in-One, Standalone Survey Solution


Choose from a full complement of survey adjustment, DTM, COGO, notation, and drafting tools in one, low-cost package. PowerSurvey integrates with industry-standard data formats, data collection devices, and design/drafting platforms to give you unlimited flexibility.


PowerSurvey is a comprehensive survey data management solution. It provides surveying professionals with a complete set of survey-specific tools for both InRoads and GEOPAK. Built on MicroStation PowerDraft, the software directly processes the data from your field survey device and automatically displays the resulting graphics on screen. You can then manipulate the data using PowerSurvey's editing, reduction, and adjustment tools.


Data Collector Support


PowerSurvey communicates with all industry-leading data collectors. Connect your data collector directly to a personal computer, laptop, or tablet PC and use PowerSurvey to manage the survey data. PowerSurvey can also upload data to the data collector for field stakeout procedures.


Customizable Feature-Driven Processing


PowerSurvey supports extensive feature databases that detail the representation of each survey shot or feature — including symbolization, labeling, DTM control, and more. The feature database is completely user-definable and ensures standardization from the field surveyor to designer. As you process data, the software draws points and features in accordance with the feature table specified. With this powerful capability, you can generate drawings onsite —immediately after the survey has been collected — for in-field verification.


Survey Data Adjustments


Editing and adjusting your survey data is an intuitive process when you use PowerSurvey. The software employs industry-standard routines to quickly make geometry adjustments and finalize your data. PowerSurvey offers least squares, compass rule, and transit rule adjustments. You can visually inspect the adjusted data and complete the topographic drawing in both DGN and DWG formats. The data can then be shared with the members of the project team.


Interactive Coordinate Geometry


Bentley PowerSurvey includes integrated coordinate geometry (COGO) tools. This valuable toolset enables you to perform offset commands, intersections, traverse, and many other geometry commands.
