Client Testimonial - Surveying with AllyCAD

Cecrle Land Surveying have been providing land surveying services for more than 20 years. The 'Cross Creek Lake Estates' project in Sebastian, Florida involved a new subdivision with single family homes. The picture below is of the project boundary survey with elevations for a new residence.

Cross Creek Lake Estates

Describing the project, Tom Cecrle explains that "I used a Nikon Instrument with a Nomad data collector and then imported all my points into AllyCAD. It is simply a matter of connecting the points and annotating the measured field bearings and distances. I then add the proposed residence and notes. With my data collector and AllyCAD I can do 1 to 3 jobs a day and have them out the door the same day.

After 21 years of using AllyCAD I can say that no other program makes taking a project from the field to the finished drawing as easy as AllyCAD."
