GeoTools V 8.05 Update:

Pick up this latest update from

New command added: GT_CREATETAPER (Draw menu - Create tapered lines)

The GT_CREATETAPER command is used to create new tapered polylines (with specified widths at each end) -or- convert existing lines, polylines and arcs into tapered polylines with specified start and end widths.

This command has been added at the request of several customers who are using tapered linear elements to denote slope, direction etc.

The GT_CREATETAPER command creates the same output as that of a polyline command drawn with differing start and end widths. It allows you to set the start and end widths once and you can create multiple tapered polylines without having to enter the width information each time, as in the case of standard polyline command.


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.
