GeoTools V 9.15 Update:


GT_CENTLINE (Build Tools - Draw center-lines from Rights-Of-Way): The original intention of this command was to create 2d road centerlines from the 2d Rights-Of-Way. We have extended the scope now and the program now allows 3d polylines, lines, arcs with elevations to be selected as the R-O-W objects and the resulting road center-line is now created in 3d by performing a linear interpolation of the two Z values on either side of the road center-line.

GT_REM_LINVERTS (Polyline Tools / Drawing Cleanup Tools - Remove collinear vertices from polylines): This command has been enhanced significantly. Firstly, the program now ignores polylines which are in non-parallel UCS because the removal of collinear vertices in such polylines is subject to the UCS orientation and can be misleading or unwanted. It is therefore recommended that users run the GT_FIXUCS command and resolves issues with the UCS before attempting to remove collinear vertices from such polylines. Other improvements include improved performance while creating the points showing locations of collinear vertices.

GT_GEO_INS ( Miscellaneous Tools - Insert a geo-referenced image): This command was not working. It has been fixed now.

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.
