SURPAC Software for Windows XP/Vista/7
Training Courses and Information
Training for SURPAC Surveying Software is available from :-
Training is available for the following SURPAC Modules :-
SURPAC “Lite” (Basic survey calculations such as, polars, joins, area, line running, intersections, traverses etc.
SURPAC Least Squares
SURPAC U/G Mining
SURPAC Cadastral CAD
Training courses can be arranged in any major centre, or an individual Mine, depending on the number of trainees registering for a training course.
Training courses can be 2, 3 or 4 days in duration, depending on clients’ requirements.
Spatial-IQ trainees use only qualified and experienced personnel. Below are some of the feedbacks received in response to recent training courses run by Spatial-IQ.
The following outlines the two main training courses offered by Spatial-IQ, namely Cadastral and Mining :-
This three day course covers the latest SURPAC Surveying Software Version 5.36 and provides the foundation for becoming a successful user of the SURPAC "Lite", SURPAC Conversions, SURPAC Cadastral CAD programmes.
Participants learn how to use these SURPAC modules and explore how these applications work together to provide integrated calculation and CAD requirements for creating, editing and plotting of diagrams, general plans, general plan data sheets, sectional title plans and working plans. The course covers fundamental survey calculations, conversions, as well as fundamental cadastral CAD programmes.
The course also covers more advanced features such as how to compute survey control networks using the method of Least Squares adjustment for both planimetric and height networks, how to use SURPAC's built-in data base to auto-convert co-ordinates from the old Clarke 1880 spheroid to the WGS84 spheroid, how to import a list of the nearest Town Survey Marks or Trig. Beacons from the data base and finally, how to use SURPAC's various built in routines for importing and/or exporting co-ordinates, drawings and images between SURPAC and Google Earth.
These combined courses are designed for both new users of SURPAC Software and those who may have used SURPAC before, but who feel they could make better use of the software after receiving appropriate training.
This course would be suitable for both executives and technical people, who need an in-depth appreciation of SURPAC principles, applications and SURPAC hands-on experience.
These courses are designed to provide attendees with both an understanding and a practical capability of the topics covered in the three days. Attendees will be given the opportunity of working through examples as well as discussing the theories and techniques used in the software.

This two-day course introduces students to the latest SURPAC Surveying Software for Windows XP/Vista/7, Version 5.36 and provides the foundation for becoming a successful SURPAC user in the SURPAC Lite, SURPAC Conversions, SURPAC least Squares, SURPAC Topographical and SURPAC Mining Modules.
Participants learn how to use these SURPAC modules and explore how these applications work together to provide a complete solution for mining surveys. The course covers the fundamental mining surveying concepts such as Surface and Underground peg fixing for a new Peg, or Station in planimetry and height as well as how to create and edit Contours, 3D Digital Terrain Models for Stock piles and volume calculations between two surfaces, volumes from a given plane, surface areas and contained areas. It also covers the creation of Cross Sections and Long Sections.
Attendees learn how to create ASCII files which
enables the results of the New Points just calculated to be easily imported back into the application at any future time, preventing the time wasting and possible errors of re-entering these data manually. The ASCII files contain extended information relative to the Peg calculation and if the User requires an output format different from the one used by SURPAC, the data from the ASCII Peg File can be easily imported into a User generated application.
