Topographic Land Surveying, Measured Building Surveying and 2D / 3D Cad Design
The main survey
software package in use at the office is LSS developed by
McCarthy Taylor Systems of Birdlip in Gloucestershire. Visit
their site at www.dtmsoftware.com
LSS is a powerful
Windows-based Digital Terrain Modelling system capable of
importing a wide range of 3D data, including raw land survey
information from EDM or GPS instruments, CAD systems and user-definable
coordinate formatted data.
The use of
efficient computer software is essential to the smooth running
of our business. Over the last 15 Years we have used several
different packages these have included MOSS, LMR and 4CE amongst
others. By using these packages we have gained invaluable
experience in the use of 3D terrain modelling software.
We now use
LSS for all out Land Survey / GPS processing, Volume Calculations
and Design work.LSS immediately produces a triangulated terrain
model, which can then be queried, viewed, manipulated and
If the imported
data contains point and linear feature coding information
such as trees, hedges, buildings, kerbs, crest and toe of
banks etc, LSS will represent these features on screen and
on final plotted output as user-defined symbols and line styles.
LSS is a complete
land survey, terrain modelling, volumetrics, design and visualisation
package which is relied upon by many blue chip organisations
and is well respected amongst engineering and survey professionals
as the system of choice for modelling and design. Recent enhancements
to the system have once again placed LSS ahead of its competition
in several key areas and they invite you to learn more about
the solutions they offer.
Since 2003 we have used
the MBS software for all measured building surveys.

MBS Floor Plans
allows for real time graphical capture of all the elements
required for the production of scale drawings of floor plans.
Running on simple hand-held computers the surveyor can input
spatial data directly from a reflectorless Total Station or
hand-held bluetooth laser measuring device, or manually from a
MBS are an
independent surveying software company owned, and managed, by
measured building and hydrographic survey professionals. The
software and methodology has therefore been developed by
people who intimately understand all of the practical problems
associated with these types of surveys.
the software is developed in conjunction with one of the
country’s leading measurement surveyors which means it is
thoroughly tested on real jobs. You can be confident that the
software meets the critical requirements for quick and cost
efficient surveying for both the practicing measurement
professional and hydrographic surveyor.

have used AutoCAD for our drawing output from its early days.
We ourselves started with version 9 and currently use
a powerful 2D and 3D design and drafting platform that automates
your design tasks, and provides digital tools so you can focus
on the design rather than the software itself. Architects,
engineers, drafters, and design-related professionals use
AutoCAD to create, view, manage, plot, share, and reuse accurate,
