User option for linear stroking when creating terrains while processing field data in 3d files.

It would be very useful to big back the user option for stroking linear elements when creating terrains. This was available in v8i and greatly enhanced our surface models. Right now there is a configuration variable but it can't be set by users. A...

Survey Media Files

Add an ExtendLine Code to Survey

This code would be similar to the DIST command, except it would allow the crews to add a taped distance to the last segment of a figure, which would extend that segment by that value. It would be similar to a DIST commend except instead of turning...

Add Single Point Arc that is identical to InRoads Surveys

The Sigle Point Arc command in InRoads survey would create true tangent arcs from the incoming and outgoing tangents. The ArcSingle in Open Roads does not. This frequently results in bulges in figures if the uncoded PC and PT points are not perfec...
