Copan for Windows desktop/netbook is a very functional and easy-to-use geomatics engineering tool for computing and managing plane land surveying and mapping coordinates from Underhill Geomatics Ltd.

It does numerous coordinate geometry (COGO) calculations, processes and adjusts raw field survey data, computes and adjusts map traverse data, performs map or deed checks, calculates areas and perimeters, performs coordinate transformations, and imports/exports Ascii files.

It supports quadrant and whole-circle bearings, south-based and north-based circle bearings, and gons (or grads) as well as degrees-minutes-seconds. It supports Geodimeter, Leica, Wild, Nikon and TDS total station formats. Also, its coordinate files may be accessed by UGL's version of Windows Free42, an HP-42S simulator program, or copied to a memory card and used directly by the Palm OS, Pocket PC and Mobile versions of Copan.

Designed for land surveyors, geodetic engineers, professionals and students, Copan for Windows — 98, NT, 2000, ME, XP, Vista, or 7 — is available for download, completely free of charge from UGL at http://www.underhill...ws/CopanWin.php or from Box.net at http://www.box.net/shared/lvzd4u14b7.

Note: A valid email address is required for a password and for frequent news of updates (see http://www.underhill...opanWinKey.php).

Version 10.05 (released on 2010.05.28) has various new features, including
o Export point names to total station files.
o Calculate offset-constrained inverses.
o Zoom to specific point.

See http://www.underhill...ws/CopanWin.php for more information.
