MicroSurvey inCAD

MicroSurvey inCAD transforms AutoCAD® into a survey and design powerhouse while maintaining a fully integrated user interface within AutoCAD.

Surveyors need tools to help them compute coordinates, balance traverses, annotate drawings, compute areas – and the list goes on. Adding inCAD to your existing copy of AutoCAD is like switching from measuring with a chain to measuring with an EDM. After a few months you'll wonder how you ever worked without it!

MicroSurvey is an Autodesk authorized developer. MicroSurvey inCAD runs on AutoCAD 2012 & 2013 and uses DWG as its native format. The command set, toolbar and menu structure remain unchanged, with exception to a plethora of MicroSurvey tools added to the main menu.

Customer Reviews

A good choice for small and large firmsReview by Ian Wilson, Ian Wilson Land Surveying, CA
Its robust nature and its elimination of "modules" makes it a good choice for small and large firms. (Posted on 4/24/2015)
Startling speed and professionalism in supportReview by Archie Donner, TELUS
The support TELUS has received from MicroSurvey is always startling in terms of speed and professionalism. (Posted on 4/24/2015)
Heads above anything else on the market todayReview by R.A. Thompson
Thanks again for a very fine program. (Posted on 4/24/2015)
The best survey program in the worldReview by R. Whatman
The program will do all the talking when you have the best survey program in the world. In the city of Peterborough there will only be two survey firms left by the end of the year. Both firms use MicroSurvey. The other firms did not have MicroSurvey. That says a lot to me. To stay in business you have to invest in the future. MicroSurvey is on the leading edge of survey software and those who invest in it are also on the leading edge. (Posted on 4/24/2015)
One of my better business decisions was to select MicroSurveyReview by Wm. Brannon, LS, NY
MicroSurvey has bridged the difficulties of complex COGO needs with a professional drafting platform for surveyors. Coming from an AutoCAD (sic) background, the transition to yet another survey software program was not a problem with MicroSurvey. Most of the questions I had were well explained in the training movies that came with the program. When I needed more technical assistance in managing the connectivity to my Leica TCR, help was immediate and without the delays encountered in some of the other developers I had tried.

Efficient and inexpensiveReview by Lynn R. Savory, Interstate Surveying, Inc., Lampasas, TX
Interstate Surveying, Inc., is a small central Texas firm with two offices. A few years ago we needed to update the software and hardware in our office to convert from DOS-based to Windows-based applications. We pride ourselves on being frugal but productive, and thereby maintaining a healthy business stature. I spent considerable time researching available software, and could find no other package that satisfied all our survey/design applications, and worked with or within AutoCAD as efficiently or inexpensively as MicroSurvey.

This is one of the finest lot design programs I have seenReview by Joe Bell, Software Reviewer, Professional Surveyor Magazine
You have all of the routines for printing out lot closure reports and even generating a metes and bounds legal description. This program almost makes designing subdivisions fun. There are routines for sewer and storm drains designed in both horizontal and vertical.
There are handy routines for cutting out and creating those detail drawings when necessary. There are many routines for labeling and handling text in general. There are scores of routines for manipulating text. You can rescale the entire drawing at any time, but you must remember to update the database after a rescale or other routines – like surface routines – will not be according to the new rescale.
You can also use raster images (photos) and drape the photo over your DTM. This enables you to make some pretty impressive displays for your clients.
All the functions necessary for downloading a data collector and/or reading a data file are fast and efficient. (Posted on 4/24/2015)

inCAD Specifications

MicroSurvey inCAD operates entirely within AutoCAD, and has no hardware requirements over and above those of AutoCAD itself except as noted below.

We suggest the following basic system as a minimum for efficient operation:

  • Processor speed of 2 GHz or greater
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 2 GB free hard disk space.
  • SVGA or better monitor with video resolution set to 1024x768 or higher. Lower resolutions may result in part of the pull down menus running off the bottom of the screen)
  • Mouse, digitizing tablet or other pointing device
  • In order to use the data collector communication features, your system will also need an external RS-232 serial port or a USB connection.
  • In order to get printed output, you will require a printer or plotter configured to work in your Windows environment. We recommend obtaining the most up-to-date printer/plotter drivers off of the manufacturers web site.

Software Requirements
MicroSurvey inCAD 2014 is designed for use with AutoCAD 2014, AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014, and AutoCAD Map 3D 2014. MicroSurvey inCAD operates within AutoCAD, so all AutoCAD requirements and limitations also apply.
