Automated Breaklines and Line Work

Breakline management is configured in your point code settings. When a code is defined as a breakline, all linework associated with these codes are automatically created as breaklines on a user defined layer.

If sequence codes are entered in the field the entire process is completely automated.

Use AI to Sequence Point Numbers

The artificial intelligence engine in Stringer Topo will save you hours of effort when shots are captured out of sequence..

Rather than manually connecting the dots, the AI engine will do this for you based on codes, point numbers and distance between shots.


Manage Linework with Innovative Interface

The Survey String Manager in Stringer Topo provides a unique process for managing your linework and break lines.

You can select a breakline in this viewer, see start and end points and apply changes as desired.

As changes are made, the breaklines and 2D lines are automatically updated in the CAD drawing.

Visualize with 3D Model Viewer

The Model Viewer component in Stringer Topo allows you to visualize your survey in 3D. You can quickly identify elevation errors, access the point and make adjustments.
