     This program is written more from a contractors perspective than a surveyors or engineers perspective. There have been many times I needed to know the distance, slope or direction between two points, calculate the volume of a cross section, generate points to stake something, align something or calculate an area. I didn't need the artwork AutoCAD could do. I needed the math this program can perform.

     There are four "Views" of the data - Text, Aerial, Profile and Contour. The sample below is an Aerial View showing a North Arrow, dimensioning of points, lines and curve which represent the edges of a road, and a hatched area which represents a box culvert.

     This program was written in VB2005 and  has the look of Office 2003.  The program was designed to turn things on and off with the minimum of  effort - Point Numbers, Features, Annotations, and Legend are toggled with one click each.  You can easily get the information you need without having to dig thru a cluttered display. The display redraws and zooms very quickly so "you" can get the information you need.

     Look at the COGO functions page to see the visual feedback this program gives 
     TINs (Triangulated Irregular Network) may be generated from points - The TIN then can be solved to show contour lines, the volume of the TIN above or below a given elevation, the difference in volume between two TINs may be computed, and the cut / fill between two TINs may be computed

     Pictures of below job - This job information was used in several of the screen shot examples
Original idea was to buy and set pre-cast box culvert extensions.
These shots let us figure out how big a crane was needed -  large
Next idea was pouring extension
Slide area was fixed by fastening a metal culvert to the concrete box then adding fill to slopes
