This release includes many new features requested directly from customers. "Several years ago we implemented a transparent and easy to use online feedback forum where our customers could submit their ideas and suggestions for improvements to our products," said Darcy Detlor, president of MicroSurvey. "The feedback system lets our users propose their feature requests and allows them to cast votes on any request that has been submitted. Requests with the most votes are given the highest priority and get our attention, ensuring that we are working on features that our customers really want." Staying on top of which features are most used in this industry, and providing the most logical combinations of these features is how MicroSurvey has been able to stick to their mission of providing the absolute best value in software – hands down.
MicroSurvey focused its development efforts on adding several new geodetic tools, hundreds of new coordinate systems, and geoid files - users can now store and edit points using their latitude and longitude values, view combined scale factors and convergence angles at any point in their drawing or project database, and transform between ellipsoidal and orthometric elevations using geoid files. Other powerful new productivity tools include a 2D draw mode for creating a 2D drawing while maintaining 3D elevation data, rescaling tools for changing the base drawing unit of an entire drawing or specific text, and much more!
