New commands in GeoTools V8:

New command added: GT_XYZSCL (Miscellaneous Tools - Scale objects (unequally) in X, Y and Z directions):
The GT_XYZSCL command performs non-uniform scaling of objects with specified X, Y and Z scale factors and a user-specified base point. This is similar to the AutoCAD SCALE command except that you can specify unequal scale factors in X, Y and Z directions.

New command added: GT_MEANPOINT (Miscellaneous Tools - Create a mean (averaged) point from cluster of points)
The GT_MEANPOINT command creates a mean point from selected multiple points and provides an option of connecting each point with the mean point by a line

Bug Fixes:

The GT_SPL2PL command (Polyline Tool Set 2 / Conversion Tools) has had a bug fixed. It now handles conversion of open ellipses into polylines correctly.


Important note: While all of GeoTools commands are tested quite extensively before they are released, it is humanly 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 as soon as possible. We will attend to it and fix the problem as soon as possible.


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