Member Profile

Carlson Software products support the efficient flow of data in land development and mining projects. From concept to completion, there is a specialized application for each stage in the process, from the gathering of existing conditions through the design process, machine control and site management.

“Our goal is to deliver the most complete suite of office and mobile software solutions ever offered for these industries by a single company,” comments David Carlson, Senior Vice President of Development for Carlson Software. “We have a wide product range; we have always given free technical support and because we encourage customer feedback our annual releases are always full of customer-driven new features.”

Key Benefits of ODA Software

Carlson Software uses the ODA Platform extensively for its own development and for the integration of partner products. “Ultimately, we knew we would want to be able to read and write .dwg and .dgn files on a mobile platform for our data collection program. We chose to work with the ODA because it had the only toolkit that we knew of for mobile access to .dwg and .dgn,” David explains. The company also uses the ODA Platform for reading and manipulating custom objects created by Autodesk® Civil 3D®.
