GeoTools V 9.12 Update:

Enhanced commands:

GT_ROWMAKER (Build Tools - Make rights-of-way / pavements / ramp): The GT_ROWMAKER command has been enhanced with 3d functionality. It will now do 3d ROW's and pavements if it encounters 3d polylines. The result is that the command can now be used to create 3d ramps and 3d paths. We hope this feature will be useful for modelling of mines, under-ground strata or plain 3d layouts above ground.

GT_XFER_OD_XD (AutoCAD Map Tools - Transfer object data / extended entity data) : The GT_XFER_OD_XD command has been renamed from the earlier GT_XFER_OD command. The new command now allows copying (or transferring) either object data or extended entity data between two objects. The earlier command GT_XFER_OD transferred object data only.

GT_PL_DATALBL (Annotation Tools - Label polylines with attached data): The GT_PL_DATALBL command has been enhanced. You can now label polylines using attached extended entity data also in addition to attached object data and database data.

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.
