MicroSurvey Releases Active Drawing Technology 02.01.2002

Four elements to help make drawings better.

MicroSurvey, Westbank, B.C., Canada, released Active Drawing Technology, which enables completely visual, fast verification, printing and manipulation of data in the drawing, the coordinate and traverse databases and during COGO calculations.

Active Drawing Technology features four elements.

  • Active Coordinate Editor:
    A coordinate editing tool that allows you to simultaneously validate and work with data and drawings. Dynamically view and edit coordinate data with changes reflected immediately in both the MicroSurvey Active Coordinate Editor window and in the drawing window. The system operates intuitively, selecting a point in the drawing will open the Coordinate Editor and highlight that coordinate in the database automatically; alternatively, selecting a coordinate in the Editor will zoom to that point in the drawing. The Active Coordinate Editor facilitates selection sets in both the drawing and the coordinate database so that you can browse and work with them as a dynamic group.
  • Active Traverse Editor:
    Fast verifying and editing raw data and allows for transparent correction with traverse data represented in a smart, spreadsheet-like editor that has incredible drag and drop capabilities. The Active Traverse Editor allows you to not only work with your raw data at any point in the traverse quickly, but it also allows customization of the views available and opens multiple traverse data sets simultaneously. Changes made to the observation data are immediately reflected in the drawing; errors are amazingly easy to spot and fix!
  • Active Batch COGO
    MicroSurvey's Active Batch COGO is a system for data entry and calculation that allows you to browse an entire COGO entry history, quickly identify errors and easily make changes. At any point COGO entries can be edited and reprocessed with the correction immediately reflected in the drawing. The interface is built with smart tags for data types like Traverse, Bearing-bearing intersection, Distance-distance intersection and more.
  • Active Tap'n Survey
    MicroSurvey's FieldGenius is a data collector with a graphical interface designed to create and work with the drawing as you survey. Direct Tap 'n Survey access to smart points, lines, curves, commands & menus. FieldGenius is tightly integrated with our desktop products. Drawings are automatically transferred to the data collector and surveys from the field are seamlessly brought to the desktop.
