LISTECH Enhances LISCAD for 2021 Release
LISCAD 2021 is now available.
We are pleased to announce the 2021 release of our LISCAD Surveying and Engineering software. This latest release includes numerous features, improvements and engineering fixes that make LISCAD even better. Some of these enhancements include:
Access Anywhere Licensing
The new Access Anywhere network licensing allows seats to be leased over a local area network (LAN), wide area network (WAN), or the Internet. Seats from a network licence can be checked out for off-line use, allowing you to use LISCAD in locations where a network connection is not available. This new network licensing enables you to optimise the use of your LISCAD licences, whether you have multiple users in a single office, multiple offices, remote users, or any combination of these.
Transfer User Defined Projections
Periodically new projections are added to LISCAD's already extensive inbuilt library and distributed via new releases of LISCAD. Significant improvements have been made to the handling of user defined projections, ellipsoids and transformations to ensure that any user created objects are automatically transferred into the new library. This results in you having the latest projections, ellipsoids and transformations as well as any you have created yourself. This eliminates the manual task of having to recreate your user defined projections.
GeoMax X-PAD Support
We are continuing to expand the list of surveying instruments supported by our software. In this latest release, LISCAD now supports the import of GeoMax X-PAD raw files. The X-PAD is becoming a popular data collector for field surveys, especially in construction industry. This new X-PAD import includes support for job related data, station set ups, measurements, codes, notes and much more.
Enhanced Photo Viewing
LISCAD now has an easier way to examine photos attached to points, lines and polygons. The Photo Attribute dialog now allows you to select a different point, line or polygon without having to return to the Examine Attributes dialog. In addition, the Examine Attributes dialog is automatically updated with the newly selected object. This new feature is a great time saver when searching for any object via a photo.
Line Extend or Trim Improvements
The Create Point by Line/Line Extension/Trim has been enhanced to include extending or trimming the selected line so that the point lies exactly on the arc, circle or spline object. This enhancement makes the command ideal for subdivision calculations like those found around court bowls and cadastral river boundaries.
Import and Merge Code Tables
To complement the existing export Code Table functionality, LISCAD now has the ability to import and merge Code Table data from XML files. This new functionality allows greater flexibility to edit and merge code data stored in LISCAD Code Tables, as well as providing an easier method for integrating code data from other systems.
Traverse Editor Improvements
The Traverse Editor is a powerful tool that allows you to extract, analyse, and adjust measurement data to ensure the integrity and quality of your survey work. Several new enhancements and fixes have been made to the Traverse Editor making it even more useful. The enhancements include the addition of Line Code and Line Description fields, remembering all previous settings, improvements to the reporting, and the ability to start a new traverse from a point derived from a radiation in a earlier traverse.
Export Reports in CSV Format
Numerous reports that generate tabular data now have the option to be created in a comma delimited format (CSV). This new option allows report data to be more easily imported into a spreadsheet for further processing and analysis. Reports that have this option are: Points, Lines, Point from Alignment, Alignment to Alignment, Alignment Centreline, Point Comparison by Alignment, Point Comparison to Linear Object, Line Comparison by Line, Isolated Stringable Points and Cross Sections.
