Carlson’s latest desktop software release brings usrs new features, increased speed, and more efficient workflows.
Carlson 2021 comes with the power of IntelliCAD 10, the newly-released update to CAD platform that brings increased speed, new features, and a fast, efficient new user interface for Carlson users, and is also compatible with AutoCAD 2017-2021.
The 2021 release also delivers powerful new integrations with Carlson’s photogrammetry solution, PhotoCapture, as well as the ability to insert and manipulate BIM models in a drawing, as well as many other time-saving innovations and automated new features, as well as improvements to many major existing elements.
Carlson Civil provides the most robust automation and ease-of-use of any civil design solution available today, and it does dynamic updating without a single custom object.
With tools for data capture and linking, data labeling, import/export of SHP files, polygon topology creation and analysis, and more, This is a true GIS “Swiss Army Knife” for the surveyor or engineer.
Carlson Survey OEM comes with a built-in engine powered with Autodesk® Technology. You'll get the full tool kit – everything from network least squares to surface modeling.
Comprehensive, yet easy-to-master, Carlson Hydrology provides the automation to meet your hydrology needs and all in the CAD environment of polylines, text, and layers.
Bundle & Save
These four civil-related modular programs, working together, will allow you to create all of your deliverables at a fraction of the long-term costs compared to other software alternatives.

Carlson Construction is an integrated cut/fill takeoff and 3D surface modeling software solution designed for site and road construction. It offers powerful inspection and tools for elevating 2D designs to 3D model files.
Carlson GeoTech provides the ability to import borehole data for analyzing subsurface conditions & material. It will model all core samples and produce a detailed, easy-to-read report for drill logs, cross sections, and plan view.
For calculating pipe installations, sewers, & utility lines. Carlson Trench determines the volume of the trench cut, back-fill volume (excluding pipe size), and the linear footage of piping by pipe material, size, and depth.
Carlson CADnet allows users to create CAD from non-CAD documents such as PDFs, raster images, and paper plans. CAD text can also be generated from raster images with CADnet’s built-in Optical Character Recognition (OCR).
Bundle & Save
The Takeoff Suite is comprised of the modules Carlson CADnet, Carlson Trench, and Carlson GeoTech combined with Carlson Construction.
All are fully integrated with Carlson Civil and Hydrology to meet the variety of customers’ needs.

Takeoff OEM includes an AutoCAD® engine built-in and has all of the same ingredients as the Takeoff Suite, which works on AutoCAD® sold separately, or with IntelliCAD® built-in.
Estimate jobs using paper plan digitizing, PDFs, or electronic CAD files.
Drill and Blast allows for quick and easy blast pattern layouts, with real time 3D editing and instant feedback. Criteria such as distance from the highwall face, or comparison of design vs. as-drilled hole locations are analyzed the entire length of each hole and color coded warnings indicate if there is a discrepancy.
Carlson Precision 3D Hydro is a powerful 3D editing software for designing storm-water related systems. P3D Hydro allows drag-and-drop options for strategically placing pipes and culverts and for selecting headwalls and endwalls. It enables the sizing of culverts and delineation of drainage areas, plus tracking of runoff from surface models.
Carlson CSI Office is designed with powerful forensic diagramming capabilities to measure and map crime scenes and traffic accidents. CSI is ideal for city and county police departments, State Police and consulting firms engaged in accident reconstruction.
On its own or together with CSI Mobile, CSI Office can effectively and accurately reconstruct crash or crime scenes, complete with full 3D scene viewing.
Carlson Point Cloud is a modular program that provides this powerful ability to go from field scan to finished plat, all with seamless integration to Carlson Survey, Carlson Civil and Carlson Mining.
Carlson Point Cloud delivers a whole new level of powerful automation for large data sets. It gives laser scanner users the ability to process millions of data points with Carlson Software ease-of-use and also allows users to export surface models, points, contours, breaklines, grid and profiles to CAD.
Designed for use by surveyors, civil engineers, and contractors, Precision 3D Topo allows users to import survey data, points, polylines, surfaces, point clouds, both traditional LIDAR and aerial drone survey data, and more from a wide variety of programs and entities to create usable 3D surfaces.
A Windows-based coordinate geometry program, Simplicity provides simplified methods for solving commonly encountered coordinate geometry and construction surveying problems.
It can also run without a CAD application, giving its users ultimate flexibility in a COGO program.
Carlson iCAD is an affordable CAD program that is .dwg file based & built with IntelliCAD®. In addition to the full-featured CAD functions of IntelliCAD, Carlson iCAD includes many handy drafting and annotation commands from Carlson Software such as Polyline Utilities & Auto Annotate and is designed to fit into your production workflow. Carlson iCAD allows drafters to finish drawings and engineers to review drawings.
Point Cloud Advanced contains all of the functionality of Basic plus the ability to extract features such as trees, hydrants and poles. It also allows the creation of solids and utilizes typical Carlson cross section alignments to extract cross sections and profiles.
You can select cloud data by color or elevation and create regions for isolating portions of a cloud for editing or extracting features. A notable feature is the ability to simplify a TIN and create smoother looking contour lines.
