GeoTools V 9.01 update:

** Enhanced commands:

GT_PL_INTER (Polyline Tool Set 1 - Assign interpolated Z elevations to
vertices): The GT_PL_INTER command has been enhanced. It now accepts
an additional variable called 'Zero Tolerance' which specifies how
vertices with very values close to 0.0 but not exactly 0.0 should be
treated. Often, AutoCAD polylines may end up with values which are not
mathematically equal to 0.0 but with a value like 0.00000001. You may
want to treat such elevations as 0.0 elevations but until now, this
was not possible. The 'Zero Tolerance' parameter helps to solve this
problem. Any elevation equal to or less than the specified zero
tolerance will be treated as 0.0 and the program will use that vertex
in ther interpolation process.

** Bugs fixed

GT_ANNOGRID (Civil Tools - Cerate Map Grid) - There have been some
flaoting point round-off errors in the annotation of some
grid coordinates. This would result in Eastings and Northings to
soemtimes fall short by 1 unit and would end up as 24001 or 23999
instead of 24000. This has now been fixed.

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.
