Introducing PECA’s Survey Management System (SMS) software, a
revised version of the successful Level Monitoring System (LMS).
SMS inherits the same interface and ease of use as the LMS with
additional capabilities to support 3-D traverse network,
triangulation network, and intersection network. SMS
is a suite of integrated system designed to cater for the needs of
the surveyors and engineers in all aspects of leveling, traversing
and tachometry. With options for GPS input, it is a model for day to
day field and office activities that include data collection,
processing, computing and management. SMS modules are
comprehensive and offered to the user in a friendly and
multi-tasking environment. It equips the user with tools and means
to faster job execution, and reduced costs by cutting down the
duration of projects to essentially the period of field activity.
Our surveying software turns the once complex task of network levelling and adjustment,
comparison of data sets and trends analysis into a straightforward
operation that can be easily and rapidly performed at the site on a
laptop computer or at the office on a desktop computer.
History of SMS
was developed as a bid to meet versatile and very demanding
requirements in the surveying and construction industry. Under the
theme “Design and Implementation of a Level Monitoring System”, the
software was the basis of a successful presentation to the Royal
Institution of Chartered Surveyors in 1995, for test of professional
Level Monitoring System (LMS DOS), as it was known, was evaluated
and rigorously tested against on-going projects, such as Channel
Tunnel Rail Link, at Engineering Surveys Limited (UK). Even at that
early stage and as a DOS based solution, the software performed
satisfactorily in handling large projects, including level
monitoring project undertaken at Channel Terminal at Cheriton.
Similarly, subsequent evaluations were carried out by Rail Link
Engineering (UK) who certified the product’s simplicity of use and
functionality as excellent.
LMS DOS evolved into Level Management System (LMS Windows) and
running under Microsoft Windows. In 1995 Leica UK adopted LMS
Windows to support the sale and use of Digital Levels. A
comprehensive five-page report by Leica is available
here. Through this marketing arrangement with Leica, many
organizations purchased and adopted the use of LMS Windows.
The success of LMS Windows spurred further developments to broaden
applications; such that at present the surveying software provides
comprehensive tools and functions to support all requirements in
levelling. LMS Windows transformed into Survey Management System
to provide the same level of functionality in the use of digital
levels, total stations and GPS with additional capabilities to
support 3-D traverse network, triangulation network, and
intersection network. Hence, the integrated system which is the
hallmark of our surveying software today.
is customer driven. The Dredge facility was written to meet the
requirements of our contract with the Shell Petroleum Development
Company, while Geodetic Transformations were developed at the
instance of a government agency’s survey requirements. Similarly,
Land Records System is evolving into a Land Information System to
meet requirements of survey departments and surveyors in private
have the trust and confidence of our customers. We sustain this
relationship by employing the best in technology, extensive
research, listening to customers and creating solutions in
SMS suite of surveying software is designed in modules to allow you, our
customers, to start out with a combination that suits your current
workload and resources; giving you the potential to add modules as
your requirements change. With this arrangement, users can
progressively acquire the whole suit and gain the full benefits of
increased productivity, profitability and competitive advantage.
