MicroSurvey CAD 2014

Postby Brian Sloman » Fri Nov 22, 2013 3:59 pm

MicroSurvey CAD 2014 is now available for download in the MicroSurvey Helpdesk or via the online updater directly inside MicroSurvey CAD (Help > Check For Updates).

MicroSurvey CAD 2014 can be run in a 30-day, fully functional trial period for demonstration purposes. Existing MicroSurvey CAD users must use the USB License Manager application to update their USB License Key(s) in order to run this version. A current maintenance subscription plan (as of today: November 22, 2013) is required - keys will update to “14.00.00”.

MicroSurvey is pleased to announce a major update to its flagship product line with the release of MicroSurvey CAD 2014.

This release includes many new features requested directly from our customers. "Several years ago we implemented a transparent and easy to use online feedback forum where our customers can submit their ideas and suggestions for improvements to our products" stated Darcy Detlor, President at MicroSurvey. He continued "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. MicroSurvey CAD 2014 includes many of the top requested features."

MicroSurvey focused its development efforts on adding new functionality for geospatial data, imagery, coordinate systems and geodetic tools. Users can view combined scale factors and convergence angles at any point in their drawing or project database. MicroSurvey CAD 2014 now includes the Global Mapper v15 SDK providing support for over a hundred different elevation, imagery and vector formats. Also supported is the ability to connect to online spatial databases and online imagery providers.

Geospatial Data and Imagery - sounds good.
I gather this is a work in progress? (Beta)
Does the new import of Shapefiles and GeoPDF's give the ability to use those entities?
Can they be snapped to, or in case of shp files exploded/further manipulated?
This could be very useful for my work.
you must load an additional program file into MicroSurvey CAD before this command can be run

Any notes (outside of Help) on how this works please Brian.
I'd prefer to read about it before considering downloading.

Hi Richard,

Yes this new command is a work in progress and it will be completed in a service pack update to be released as soon as possible (hopefully before Christmas). Currently the selected file (be it Shapefile, GeoPDF, or whatever else) is presented for display only, sort of like a raster image. A brief video demonstrating this command is available on the MicroSurvey CAD 2014 Upgrade Tour page, and I just added the instructions for loading this new command into MSCAD to the MicroSurvey CAD 2014 Known Issues article.

We do plan to continue expanding our Shapefile support, including working with features and attributes, to provide complete import/export functionality in a future update. Shapefile support is one of the most popular feature requests from our users, and it will be an important addition to MicroSurvey CAD — for now, we hope that being able to view a shapefile is a helpful start!
