Version 3.1 allows the user to scan images directly into Prosurv Imaging. The image can then be rotated, clipped and saved. Typically, a scanned document will need to be rotated, in order to match the Primary Image and create a georeference file. This rotation is easily performed by defining a reference line in the Primary and Supplemental Images. Once the second image is georeferenced, it can be opened by Prosurv Imaging as the Primary Image, allowing the user to perform any function within Prosurv Imaging, such as processing the map for use with Pocket Quads.NET. Since the image is now fully georeferenced, it can also be used with other software requiring a georeferenced image.
Other new functionality in Prosurv Imaging include new Pan and Zoom Area buttons, and the ability to view the two images side by side either Split Horizontally or Split Vertically. The new version also allows the user to store up to 10 different views of each image. Each view stores the current zoom and scroll location. This allows the user to instantly navigate between different parts of the map and at different zooms. It is extremely useful when placing the tacks on the maps in order to generate the georeference data for the second image.
