The Benefits


Cut and fill calculations that would normally take hours, days or even weeks is a thing of the past. MudShark’s features and tools allow you to estimate and takeoff up to 5x faster than traditional methods.


Surveyors and estimators must have orderly and analytical minds and be prepared to work to very rigid time schedules. Finding the right tools are part of the challenge. MudShark fits this role perfectly and provides accurate technical data in the form of quantities in an efficient manner.


Dynamically view both your existing and proposed site stages in 3D space, enabling quick and easy visual verification of input and results. This provides unrivalled advantages over competing systems.
