New Features in STAR*NET 7:

    Integrated Data Editor - STAR*NET 7 has a fully integrated data editor, which offers customizable syntax highlighting (colors/fonts), bookmarking and jumping to bookmarked lines, and no more need for an external text editor like notepad (although that’s still an available option).
    Customizable Interface - STAR*NET 7 has a brand-new interface which is highly customizable to suit your specific workflow or preferences - move and resize panels, collapse and expand panels, stack panels into a tabbed interface, dock panels into the main interface or leave them floating, customize the toolbars and menus, use small or large toolbar icons, and more!
    Find Point - An advanced Find Point tool allows you to quickly locate and jump to any references of a specific point ID in any of your input data files, by simply double-clicking a point name in any of your output files (Listing, Coordinates, Ground, Lat/Long, Error Log, Dump, etc). No more pouring through thousands of lines of data codes looking for references to a specific point, a simple double-click now does all this eye-straining work for you!
    Differential Levelling Loop Closure Check - Quickly detect loop closure errors in your level networks using the new Level Loop Check command found in the Run menu. This is a powerful blunder detection tool for leveling data!
    GPS Vector Loop Closure Check - Quickly detect loop closure errors in your GPS vector networks using the new GPS Loop Check command found in the Run menu. This is a powerful blunder detection tool for GPS data!
    Point Aliasing - A new ".ALIAS" inline option is available which you can use to define point aliases by explicitly naming the aliases, or by specifying a prefix, suffix, or additive number to define an aliasing scheme that corresponds with your field procedures. A point can then be aliased by one or more points with non-unique point names that get translated to another point name. Note, aliased points are not currently identified by the new Find Point tool.
    Lost Stations - A new ".LOSTSTATIONS" inline option is available to identify points which are no longer physically available, lost stations will be included in the network processing but can be left off of the resulting plot if desired.
    GPS Sideshots - Two new ".GPS NETWORK" and ".GPS SIDESHOT" inline options can be inserted prior to any G1 vector records to define the following vectors either as part of the network or as a sideshot type records that are processed after the network has been adjusted so they do not affect the network solution.
    GPS Antenna Height Corrections - Correct GPS Base/Rover Height errors with the new ".GPS AddHiHt [HI] [HT]" inline option to specify or correct base and rover antenna height blunder.
    Project Manager - A new Project Manager is now available for quickly opening and creating projects.
    Template Data File - A new template mechanism allows you to customize a template data file that is automatically added to new projects, for example you can now automatically include coordinate records for your local control network, etc.
    2D GPS Adjustments - 2D Adjustments of GPS Data is now possible.
    EGM2008 Geoid Support - The STAR*Geoid extraction utility can now extract data from the EGM2008 geoid for creating STAR*NET-compatible geoid and vertical deflection model files.
    NGS OPUS Report Support - An importer for reading station data (adjusted coordinates with full covariance matrices) from NGS OPUS reports into STAR*NET .gps data files is now available in the GPS Importer.
    MicroSurvey FieldGenius Support - A conversion utility for converting MicroSurvey FieldGenius data collection software .raw files to STAR*NET .dat files.
    MicroSurvey FieldGenius Support - An importer for reading vector data from MicroSurvey FieldGenius data collection software .raw files into STAR*NET .dat data files is now available in the GPS Vector Importer.
    Long Point Name support – A new "Full Point Names" option in the Listing File Options screen prevents long point names from being cut off at 10-characters. This replaces the previously undocumented .LNAMES inline option available in STAR*NET 6.
    Quick File References – A new "Quick File References" option in the Listing File Options screen allows you to display references to the first occurrence of a file and line number referencing each point. This replaces the undocumented .QFILEREF inline option available in STAR*NET 6.
    Redefinable Fixed StdErr Constants - A new "Fixed StdErr" option group in the General Options screen allows you to to redefine the StdErr used when something is defined as "Fixed", previously it was hard coded to 1E-7m or 1.0001E-3 seconds but in rare occasions this had to be loosened to allow certain networks to process. This replaces the undocumented .QFIX inline option available in STAR*NET 6.
