Hemisphere GPS and Carlson Software Establish Strategic Alliance

SCOTTSDALE, AZ, Feb. 16, 2012 /CNW/ – (TSX: HEM) Today, Hemisphere GPS and Carlson Software announced a strategic alliance. This alliance will provide a roadmap for new, integrated solutions for land survey, mapping, construction, mining and other key machine control markets. Carlson Software is a leading developer of field and office-based land development software.

This strategic alliance is part of Hemisphere GPS’s recent formation of their survey and construction group, where the two companies will combine their expertise to develop intuitive and powerful GNSS-based solutions that improve the efficiency and performance in several applications including data collection, land development design and earth moving. Recently, collaborations with Carlson include survey data collection software that supports Hemisphere GPS’ new S320™ GNSS survey receiver system (see www.S320surveyor.com).

“Hemisphere GPS’ GNSS technology, guidance terminals and other hardware technologies are the ideal complement to Carlson Software products,” says Randy Noland, Vice President of Carlson Software Machine Control. “This partnership will help us bring application centric solutions to the market much faster.

Professional Land Surveyor News: Carlson Software & Transtronic AB Reach Mutual Development & Distribution Agreement for 3D GNSS Drilling Solutions

Professional Land Surveyor News: Carlson Software & Transtronic AB Reach Mutual Development & Distribution Agreement for 3D GNSS Drilling Solutions

Here’s an interesting press release that I originally found interesting, but thought at the time that it was  not overly relevant to professional land surveyors. Since then, however, with the catastrophic BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion, fire, and oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico this may now be very topical and newsworthy.

I don’t know if the 3D GNSS drilling solutions detailed below are even applicable to the type of deep water drilling being used to drill the two relief wells adjacent to the former location of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig? If anyone knows, please give us an update below in this posts comments section. Either way, the technology detailed below, and I’m sure the technology being used to drill the two BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig relief wells, is very impressive and shows again how integrated GPS is becoming in all aspects of our lives and businesses. I think this also another example of how machine control is changing our industry and is here to stay.

MAYSVILLE, Ky., U.S.A., & KÖPING, Sweden – Carlson Software Inc. and Transtronic AB recently reached an agreement for international distribution of Carlson’s Drill Grade 4.0 software with Transtronic’s hardware and sensor technology.

Working together, Carlson’s Drill Grade software and Transtronic AB hardware, which includes sensors for length, angle and azimuth measurement, provide a complete 3D Drill solution for all types of drill rigs for OEM considerations or retrofit.

touch-the-sunSummer is finally here and after a long, dark and rainy spring in New England. The economy has also remained dark and turbulent.

I had some hope that in late March and early April business would pick up a little. And, that’s just what business did – It picked up a little, very little.

Life and business has as its ups and its downs, like the weather and the tides. I am still hopeful that the economy will be improving soon. It’s only a matter of time, but the 64,000 dollar question is who will be left standing when the relentless tide of this recession recedes?

Why GIS Needs Professional Land Surveyors Video with Brent Jones of ESRI

April 17, 2009 in Associate Membership, Business, Business Videos, Carlson, Continuing Education, GIS, GPS, Land Surveying, Land Surveying Videos, Surveying Software, Technology Videos, Videos

If you’re a professional land surveyor, regardless of whether you own your own company or work for someone else, you must see this informative video of the presentation that Brent Jones of ESRI gave at the recent Carlson Users Conference 2009. It is a little long (all good), so grab a cup of coffee, sit back and learn how GIS needs professional land surveyors and how professional land surveyors need GIS, too.

I think that the ideas presented by Brent Jones are right on target and present a road map for professional land surveyors to incorporate GIS into their professional practices and survive and prosper in the post recession economy.

I know that a shiver runs up the back of many professional land surveyors at the sound of that word, GIS. But now is the time for us, with all of the talents and knowledge we posses as professional land surveyors, to help make GIS better and raise it to a level where GIS is survey grade in positional accuracy and quality!

Dewberry Case Study, ‘Choosing and Implementing Carlson,’ at the Carlson ‘Break New Ground’ Users Conference, April 5-7

March 25, 2009 in Associate Membership, Business, Carlson, Continuing Education, GIS, Land Surveying, News, Surveying Software

MAYSVILLE, Ky., U.S.A. (March 24, 2009) – At the Carlson “Break New Ground” User Conference in Lexington, Ky., April 5 through 7, David Palumbo of Dewberry will be presenting a case study on how the  2000-person professional services firm with more than 40 locations in 18 states recently chose the Carlson Civil Suite for its site-civil engineering needs.

“In April 2007, Dewberry’s site-civil market segment group embarked on a strategic initiative to unify and modernize site-civil work flow across two dozen offices that service this segment,” said Palumbo, PE, Technology Manager for Infrastructure Services at Dewberry. “Carlson Civil Suite was selected over two competing solutions as best aligning with Dewberry’s desired work flow and site-civil technical specifications.”

The Carlson Civil Suite includes Carlson Civil, Carlson Survey, Carlson Hydrology, and Carlson GIS. Together, these four products are a comprehensive set of design/drafting tools that automate all facets of the civil engineering project.

Palumbo, whose duties include facilitating technology solution acquisition and implementation for all of Dewberry’s infrastructure services, including site-civil, transportation, and telecommunications, will explain the intensive process Dewberry performed to choose Carlson. Then he will show how Dewberry, an Engineering News-Record “Top 50″ design firm, set about to most effectively implement Carlson throughout their extensive company.
