LISCAD Surveying & Engineering Software
Purpose made software for the surveyor and engineer.
LISCAD is a complete field-to-finish surveying and engineering software trusted by thousands of users worldwide.
Designed and developed by surveyors and engineers, LISCAD interfaces with all common surveying, engineering and CAD systems and processes field survey data from all major survey equipment manufacturers.
Just some of the things you can do with LISCAD include;
- rigorous geodetic computations
- unlimited model size
- traverse and least squares network adjustment
- 2D and 3D transformations
- volume computations
- geo-referenced background images
- 3D visualisation and profiles
The impressive engineering design capability allows easy generation of virtually any design, while Survey Live can be used for real-time surveying and set-out with total stations or GNSS equipment. In addition, point clouds can be imported, viewed, edited and utilised for virtual surveying workflows.Configure and Customise
LISCAD’s flexibility allows you to customise its configuration and field coding to suit your local needs. Customise code structure, colours, toolbars, folders code tables, projections, fonts and numerous other aspects of the system. This intuitive software is free to try, easy-to-use and quick to learn with comprehensive tutorials, technical support and language versions.Modular Design
LISCAD has a number of modules which are integrated to offer a seamless workflow. The modular design offers the flexibility to purchase only what you need initially and to add modules with extra functionality as required.
A number of licensing models are available to suit your needs.Perpetual
Perpetual licensing allows you to make a one off purchase and keep the software up-to-date with LISTECH Cover. All perpetual licence purchases include a complimentary three month Cover period. This model is most suited for businesses that have a steady project pipeline and consistently require LISCAD for their project and business operation.Subscription
For organisations that have varied project needs the subscription model is best suited as it allows organisations to scale up or down the number of licences to suit business and project requirements. Subscription licences include software maintenance and support for the duration of the subscription.Education
Education licensing is available for legitimate educational institutions that teach industry related subjects and include LISCAD as part of the curriculum. Please contact us for more information.

Transfer data to and from total station, data logger, GPS and digital level field surveying devices, as well as software systems including: AutoCAD DWG, MicroStation DGN and LandXML.
Full geodetic coordinate geometry (COGO) computations based on a selected map projection can be performed using the Computations module to create, edit and examine points, lines, polygons, text and alignments.
Model formation is achieved using a geographically indexed database to ensure fast and accurate triangulation of data sets of any size. Once a digital terrain model is formed, the contours can be instantaneously displayed at any interval.
Compute earthworks volumes between surfaces, determine surface intersections, create height difference data sets and calculate progressive volumes between planes or irregular surfaces.
Adjust field surveying measurements with a rigorous least squares solution. Adjust traverse or network frameworks for both horizontal and vertical control.
Transform between any projections, or compute transformation parameters from coordinate sets using Least Squares principle.
Profiles and Design
Create and edit long sections and cross sections for CAD output and end area volumes. The Profiles and Design module incorporates an impressive condition-based system for easy generation of virtually any civil or road design.
Import orthophotos, satellite images and maps that can be georeferenced to allow for correlation of raster images to vector geometry and for on-screen digitising.
Import, view, edit and digitise point cloud data. View point clouds in 3D to create point and line objects.
A realistic 3D view of your project. Models can be coloured, textured or have background images draped over them. Individual triangles can be easily coloured or textured to give a realistic representation of the model. Also features banding for height, grade and aspect.
Real-time field surveying and stakeout using total stations and GNSS receivers. Designed for small format tablet computers, the graphical interface combines finger or stylus operation with CAD-type viewing controls. Clearly see your survey build as you go. Survey Live lets you have the power of your office software in the field as you can still access all your other LISCAD functionality.
Application designed specifically for land surveyors and civil engineers to enhance the plan and map production process.
Create or edit your own symbols, line styles and fonts for use in all the LISCAD modules.
