GeoTools V 6.05 update:

Pick up this latest update from

Minor change : GT_SCALE_Z command (Miscellaneous Tools) now has its edit
box width increased to 8. So, you can add more number of digits to the
precision of the values that you are scaling.

Enhanced command : GT_OD_SEARCH (Autodesk Map Tools - Search and replace Object Table Data):

The GT_OD_SEARCH command now has an option to just do the Search without the Replace.

There is a new option called 'Replace Values' which, if checked, performs a search and replace operation. If it is not checked, only a search is performed and the objects meeting the search criteria will be placed in the active selection set. Some other bugs in this command have been fixed.

New command added : GEO_INS : (Miscellaneous Tools - Add geo-referenced images):

The GT_GEO_INS command can be used to insert geo-referenced image files. These image files can be either in the TIF, BMP or JPG format and they MUST be accompanied by their world files as well. The Workd files have an extension of TFW, BPW or JGW. This command DOES NOT import GeoTIFF files in which the geo-referencing information is stored in the file header. Instead, this is a command designed to work with the normal TIF, JPG and BMP files only which have their world files also available.


Important note: While all of GeoTools commands are tested quite extensively before they are released, it is humanely impossible to test-run it under every different data type or operating environment. In the event that you notice any GeoTools command not functioning as expected, please bring it to our notice asap. We will attend to it and fix the problem as soon as possible.
