Construction Desktop Software

Trimble LM80 Desktop Software

Trimble® LM80 Desktop software is designed for the contractor using the pocket-sized LM80 Layout Manager for his layout applications. It's the ideal companion for anyone working with very large or complex drawings.

Featuring an intuitive graphical user interface, LM80 Desktop Software makes it easy to create a digital replica of your construction blueprint in the office, before going out on the site to do the layout. While you are still in the office, you can use the coordinate geometry functions to perform distance, angle, area or down-and-out computations. You can also create your construction points from AutoCAD 2007 DXF or DWG files, upload them to the Trimble LM80 Layout Manager, or send them directly to a total station for onboard layout. No need to learn a complete engineering CAD program!

•Graphical User interface provides direct access to common functions for a shorter learning curve and minimal self-training.
•Standard View Controls offer a common user interface designed for anyone with a limited understanding of CAD for fast, easy operation.
•Multiple Point Selection in Individual, Window, and Current view point selection techniques give you maximum control to select points.
•Enter Plan and COGO (coordinate geometry) functionality in the office.
•Supports importing AutoCAD DWG and DXF files for creating layout points.
•Import and export text files that contain a list of points and coordinates.

TDS Foresight DXM Desktop Software

Manage every stage of your project
TDS ForeSight DXM computer-aided office surveying software lets you bridge the data management gap between field data collection and computer-aided design (CAD) software. ForeSight DXM allows easy data transfer from Survey Pro software to a laptop or PC so you can display survey data graphically. It also helps you manage project files, checks data for accuracy and completeness, provides advanced yet easy-to-use editing tools, and prepares your data for field survey or CAD development.
Like Survey Pro, ForeSight DXM is designed with an intuitive look and feel that works the way you do. ForeSight DXM provides robust features for transferring survey data and lets you view it graphically-making it easier to isolate errors and make sure your field data is complete.

TDS ForeSight Desktop Software

Taking you further—at the office and in the field
TDS ForeSight computer-aided office surveying software helps you analyze, adjust, plot and manage your field data so you can prepare for your project's next phase. ForeSight's easy-to-use tools help you complete your projects faster and easier—at the office and in the field.

ForeSight's expanded CAD tools include basic point editing, DTM surfaces and road layouts. And ForeSight gives you multiple recording and exporting options—including AutoCAD DXF and DWG files.

COGO tools
ForeSight includes a complete set of COGO tools that let you perform all your surveying calculations. Basic COGO tools include inverse in multiple modes, closure report, area and corner angle. And these COGO tools are custom-made for surveyors' needs—they work the way you do.

Auto linework
Let ForeSight draw parts of your job. Using a TDS data collector such as the Recon or Ranger and incorporating linework commands as you go, ForeSight can automatically draw lines with curves. ForeSight can also separate data into layers so you can organize your job more quickly.

Easy-to-use point names
Organize your data more easily by naming points. Point names define lines and sets of common points quickly. ForeSight can import and export both JOB files and ASCII files with alphanumeric point names.
