Generating work flow efficiency and increasing return on investment for today’s mapping professionals
Terrain Navigator Pro (TNP) is powerful and easy to use desktop and mobile mapping software that contains high resolution scans of USGS topographic maps as well as current aerial photographs overlaid with a current street layer. These maps and photos can be customized with labels, marks, symbols, lines, routes, tracks, area fills, GIS data sets, and notes. Once you have finished designing your custom maps, use the built-in printing and publishing to create digital and paper prints with text, logos, inset maps, legends, etc. Layers, maps, and photos can be exported to be used in other GIS and CAD software or image editor.
Take advantage of your smartphone's GPS receiver to bring one less piece of equipment into the field. Accurately and easily plot positions, follow a premade route/track, generate a property boundary, take high-res photos and videos and sync them all to your TNP desktop project before you even get back to the office.
TNP is a great time saver, increasing your return on investment. Don't know how to get to the first point of your survey? TNP can show you the appropriate topographic map, street map, aerial photograph, NGS benchmark and render them all in 3D. You can also exaggerate the 3D view so you get a clear understanding of the terrain you'll be encountering as you get to your project area.
TNP is also a great tool for estimating job costs before you set foot on the property. As J. Craig Brewer from Professional Surveyor Magazine said, "With TNP, the tools I need to prepare proposals quickly and accurately are all found in one place. I can get a good idea of obstacles and conditions and arrive at a good estimate of time required to complete the project." (February 2011)
