Top Features

  Contractor Friendly
  Streamlined interface with two modes: Layout and As-built.
    Layout mode includes all the tools you need to locate points, lines, arcs, and DXF drawing entities.
  As-built mode includes all the tools you need to perform a topographic survey or to collect as-built data. Measure and store points that can be exported for use in CAD systems, or import the data directly into MicroSurvey Point Prep.

  Easy Layout
  Graphically stake points with directional grids, compass, or map mode.
  Graphically stake DXF cad drawings by selecting DXF entities from the map screen.
  Staking list allows you to manage your day's work by selecting the points you plan on staking and Layout will automatically guide your process.
    Stake point routine can find the next nearest point to your current prism or GPS position for you automatically.
    Error checking is built in and warns you when you store a layout position that doesn’t meet your error tolerances preventing accidental errors at the job site.
    Cut sheet generator creates a layout report that summarizes what points have been located along with point deviations and cut and fill values.

  MEP Module
  The MEP module for MicroSurvey Layout provides the user with advanced but easy to use tools for laying out points on floors, walls, ceilings and pipe penetrations using a simple laser dot. Using the non-prism mode on your instrument, MicroSurvey Layout will automatically iterate several measurements and determine where the true surface is located and adjust the layout location automatically. Your instrument’s laser dot will mark the spot!
  Four different measurement modes are available:
  • Point on Floor
  • Point on Ceiling
  • Point on Wall
  • Pipe Penetration
  This functionality is available for the Leica TS15, Leica Nova 50, Geomax Zoom80, Leica iCON 50, and the Leica 3D Disto. The MEP module can be added to either MicroSurvey Layout or MicroSurvey Layout Pro.

  Video Stream Point Scanning
  Multiples practical scanning methods including rectangular, polygonal, full dome, and half dome (Ceiling/Floor mode)
  Using total station onboard cameras to easily define complex scan areas.
  Finish scan data transferring and exporting in one simple click.
    Automatically determines scan resolution based on distance measurements.
    Easily filter out unwanted background areas.

  Easy Plan Entry
  Built-in Plan entry tool allows you to easily take design measurements from a paper plan and enter them directly into Layout to create a digital version of the drawing.
  Work in feet, feet and inches, fractions, or metric units.
  Coordinate points are computed for you automatically as you enter measurements.
    Create lines and arcs along with points at the same time as you enter plans.
    Template creator allows you to save your entered plan so it can be used in other projects.

  Easy Setup
  Reference Point routine allows you to measure to two or more known points to establish your total station location so you can begin to work quickly.
  Reference Point Check allows you to confirm at any time during your workday that your total station position is still valid and accurate.
  Check Point routine can also be used to check into other known points to confirm that your total station position is accurate and correct.
    Remote Benchmark allows you to shoot a known point so a known elevation can be transferred to your current total station position.

  Offsets and Point Patterns
  Lines and arcs can be offset to the left or right or both by a specific distance.
  Compute points down and out from a line or arc.
  Partition lines or arcs by defining a distance, or a number of divisions along the line or arc.
    Compute point offsets between points.
    Input point patterns and then apply them to points in your project for layout.

  As-built and Topographic Tools
  As-built routines are built-in so you can measure existing conditions for as-built reports or drawings.
  Easily record points with elevation that can be exported to other third party applications.
  Record data for cut / fill analysis, volume calculations or DTM model creation.
    Generate line work as you measure. Create a picture at the job site while you work.
    Use GPS or your Total Station to measure and record your points.
