Spectra Geospatial Layout Pro
Perform layout tasks on your own with Layout Pro.
Reduce your subcontracting to cut costs and minimize down-time.
You can even re-lay out critical job site points if they’re damaged during construction.
Spectra Geospatial Layout Pro™ software offers the convenience of carrying, managing, editing, and laying out your job site blueprint while you’re on the go. And this is all possible regardless of the method or instrumentation used. The power of a simple user interface makes Layout Pro a must-have tool that will revolutionize the way you work.
Plus, Layout Pro has basic site survey capabilities and allows the creation of as-built records. Layout Pro organizes and standardizes all layout activity for your equipment from a transit and tape to a mechanical total station and even the Spectra Geospatial FOCUS® 35 robotic total station. You’ll see the savings in shorter training times as well as more flexibility and independence—if one instrument is unavailable, you can quickly and easily swap out for another. When used with a total station, Layout Pro provides the most significant gains in productivity,
accuracy and reliability.
Layout with a Robot
For the highest level of productivity and flexibility, Layout Pro can be used with the FOCUS 35 robotic total station. Layout Pro on the Ranger 3 data collector with its builtin radio, provides remote control capability to your total station. All layout tasks can then be completed by just one person at
the rod. Setup the instrument, connect to it with the radio using the Ranger 3 and Layout Pro, and you’re ready to layout points. The on-screen real-time display will guide you directly to each point.
Speed and Reliability
Layout Pro software is a critical tool in the field of construction layout, designed to make the layout process more productive, accurate and reliable. Layout Pro is specifically designed to meet the unique requirements of in-thefield construction layout. With Layout Pro you have the ability to input blueprint dimensions and build a digital replica of the layout plan. Then you can use Layout Pro to guide the layout of the major points, add string dimensions on the print, as well as calculate diagonals and angles. Layout Pro makes your most complex layouts – such as curves and arcs – as straightforward as any other.
Import a DXF file with your layout data –be it a simple building pad or an entire building. Use the easy-to-use snap features in the field to digitize points quickly and accurately. Then, use the layout tools to set those points. The DXF file will even be shown as a background to your points map so it’s easy to know where you are. Layout Pro also gives you complete control over the DXF file layers so it’s easy to see only the data you want to see. Layout Pro also supports creating point patterns to represent bolt patterns or other complicated patterns. Create or edit a point pattern in the field and place that pattern on multiple center points at the same time.
Layout Pro Office
This office software is the perfect companion tool for Layout Pro in the field. Layout Pro Office provides the necessary tools to extract points and lines from CAD drawings to use in the field. It also
provides a point pattern editor to create patterns for such things as anchor bolts. Layout Pro Office includes the same basic tools for plan design, measuring, and calculations as the field software, so it is easy to use. Layout Pro Office can then be used to transfer the files to the data collector or total station for use in the field.
