64-bit Version
STAR*NET 9 is now available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The 64-bit version can access more memory and execute faster than the 32-bit version.
Integrated Data Editor: Command Autocompletion
Learn More
The integrated data editor has been enhanced with an auto-completion feature for inline options. It will determine what command you are starting to type and let you select the applicable keywords for that command. This makes it easy to manually add or modify inline options into your data files. This behaviour can be toggled on (default) or off by the new Command Autocompletion option in the Editor Options dialog.
Integrated Data Editor: Command Help Tips
Learn More
The integrated data editor has been enhanced with inline help tips for data lines and inline options, which makes it easy to manually modify your data files without having to remember specific syntax or cross-referencing the help files. Help text describing the command syntax will appear when you select any valid data line, and various other optional details can be added to the Help Tips in the Editor Options dialog. Complete documentation is available by pressing F1 when any Help Tip is displayed, to open the appropriate context-sensitive Help File. This behaviour can be toggled on (default) or off, made floating (default) or inline, and Command Help Tips options in the Editor Options dialog.
Integrated Data Editor: Inline Error Messages
Learn More
The integrated data editor has been enhanced with inline error messages that are displayed where an adjustment error occurs. This makes it easy to manually locate and fix syntax errors in your data files when running an adjustment. Press F2 and Shift-F2 to jump to the next or previous error just like other bookmarks in the data files. All Error and Warning messages are still also displayed in the Error Log, and you can click on an error message in the Error Log to jump to the location of that error in the data files. This behaviour can be toggled on (default) or off by the new Error Annotations option in the Editor Options dialog.
Integrated Data Editor: Find Tips
Learn More
Finding text (Edit>Find or Ctrl-F) in your input data file highlights and bookmarks all Find Results making it easier to locate visually and jump between. Advanced Find (clicking on a station name) now also works from the Data Files, bookmarks all matching Find Results, and centers the network plot on that same station.
Integrated Data Editor: Column Editing
Learn More
The integrated data editor has been enhanced with column editing capabilities like other advanced text editor programs. Hold down the "Alt" key while dragging your cursor to select columns of text and/or to make the cursor span multiple rows. Column editing makes it easy to delete or overwrite horizontally aligned blocks text that spans multiple rows of data, for example changing or inserting a target height that appears in several consecutive lines.

STAR*NET 8.2

Adjust Network with Cluster Detection
Learn More
A new adjustment method that lets you combine observations that are stored with different point identifiers and treat them as a single point during adjustment, based on their proximity within a specified 2D or 3D tolerance.
Adjusted Observations and Residuals
Learn More
The listing file now reports an effective distance value along with any angular residuals in the "Adjusted Observations and Residuals" section, including Angles, Zeniths and Directions, making it easier to interpret the angular residuals and identify possible issues like an incorrect target height and other problems.
Data Conversion and GPS Vector Import
Learn More
Many improvements to several of the data conversion utilities and GPS vector importers improve the compatibility with FieldGenius, Leica, Carlson, Trimble, TDS, and other data collectors.
Select Ellipsoid
Learn More
A new adjustment option for grid projects that lets you specify whether to use the ellipsoid as defined by the project’s coordinate system (like in STAR*NET V6/V7) or to use WGS84 (like in STAR*NET 8.0/8.1) for all geodetic input and output values including latitude/longitude positions and ellipsoid heights such as P/PH/CH/EH records, the geodetic position (.pos) file, and the listing (.lst) file.
Network Adjusted Speed
Network adjustments run much faster than in previous versions.

STAR*NET 8.1

Network Plot
Learn More
All network plot display options are now customizable in an intuitive grid-view. Control the visibility, color, linetype, and size of each network element to graphically differentiate conventional, GPS, and Leveling observations. Directional arrowheads indicate both the direction and number of observations between two stations. Zoom and pan in the network plot view using smooth, intuitive mouse controls.
PRISM Command
Learn More
A new ".PRISM" inline option lets you apply a correction for measurements that were collected with an incorrect prism offset setting, without having to make potentially thousands of tedious calculations and manual edits.
Google Maps™ Support
Learn More
View your network stations in Google Maps by clicking the Map button located in the Find Point dialog. (Compatible with Grid projects only.)
Google Earth™ Support
Learn More
Export your network stations and connections to a .kml or .kmz file and view them in Google Earth. (Compatible with Grid projects only.)
Level Loop Tolerance Check
Learn More
Instantly verify whether or not the vertical misclosure of your level loops or traverses fall within maximum allowable tolerances, based on its total length and a selected standard of accuracy like NGS Second Order Class II, NRCan First Order, etc.
Online Updater
Learn More
Stay current with the latest STAR*NET updates and maximize your return on investment. Check for updates at any time, or use the configurable automatic updater to notify you when an update is available.
File References
Learn More
An index column has been added to the Data Input Files Panel, corresponding to the File:Line references in the Listing file, and double-clicking on a : character in the Listing file will now take you directly to the corresponding data file and line number in the Editor.
Data File Monitor
Learn More
Data Editor now monitors for any changes that are made by an external program to a loaded data file, and will prompt to reload it from disk. Data Editor now immediately updates when a loaded data file is changed by Overwriting or Appending to it with the GPS Importer.
Conversion Utilities
Direct access to all conversion utilities has been added within STAR*NET via the Import menu. Help buttons have been added to all conversion utilities for direct access to the relevant help topic.
MicroSurvey FieldGenius Support
The STAR*FieldGenius conversion utility and the FieldGenius GPS importer will now convert OB records
Learn More
The STAR*FieldGenius conversion utility and the FieldGenius GPS importer will now convert OB records (COGO measurements) from the raw file as BM (Bearing Measurement) records. FieldGenius GPS importer will now read GPS Offset measurements from the raw file, and export new G4 data records to define the offset from the rover's measured position to the actual point. FieldGenius GPS importer will now handle scenarios where the base receiver is moved midway through the raw file without connecting to it to define the base point ID, it is now more tolerant of corrupt data such as latitude/longitude values of exactly zero, and it will ensure that any vectors imported without a defined base point ID will construct a unique point ID.
Carlson SurvCE Support
The STAR*Carlson conversion utility can average shots in multiple sets, and it can convert resection observations as direction sets. The Carlson GPS importer can now import point descriptions with each vector.
Leica DBX Support
The STAR*Leica DBX conversion utility can now export All set observations or average set observations for any sets collected with either the Sets of Angles or Traverse applications, it can export stakeout observations as measurement records, and it can export checkshot deltas as comment records.
