GeoTools e-Newsletter # 4:


June 26, 2000

1. GeoTools Version 1.32 is now available for download.

Go to and download the full program or pick up just the latest
executables at

It is a good idea to download the full version as this would always make sure that your documentation and menu files are updated as well. 

2. What's new in Version 1.32?

a. We have fixed a couple of bugs in the DISTANGWEED command (under GeoTools->Polyline menu) which allows weeding or
optimization of polyline vertices using a distance and back deflection angle criteria.

b. The SEGLABEL command (under GeoTools->Polyline menu) now has an additional option while specifying where the segment label is positioned. The segment label can now be placed on, above or below the segment when the "Along Segment"option is chosen. This has been made to accommodate the next feature that will be added to this command, namely to enable
the distances and bearings of a polyline to be annotated. This will be done in a upcoming version of GeoTools and the small addition to the placement option we made here ensures that you can place the distance and bearing at non-overlapping positions.

c. The PARTMIRROR command now is the latest addition in this version which adds to the PARTOFFSET, PARTEXTRACT, PARTMOVE and PARTSTRETCH command which allow part editing of long polylines. With PARTMIRROR, you can now pick two points on the polyline and have only that segment mirrored. This can be very useful in many polyline editing tasks. See under
GeoTools-> Polyline menu.

GeoTools now packs over 100 time-saving commands and costs only US$ 99.00 per license.

More commands are coming your way. Stay tuned.

Thank you for your continued support. As always, we welcome feedback at all times.
