Dubuque, Iowa,  – Eagle Point Software Corporation announced the release of Data Reduction, its second third-party software solution built to run directly on AutoCAD Civil3D. Data Reduction provides a link for those who need to import survey data from various manufacturers’ file formats into Civil 3D. Whether users download directly from the collector or import a job already on the PC, shots described in the field using Eagle Point’s popular coding methodology are imported into Civil 3D with linework automatically generated.

With its support of over 30 survey file formats, Data Reduction saves time both in the field and the office. First, it reduces the number of keystrokes for description entry by predefining shot sequencing using cross-section patterns and 3D templates. Secondly, Data Reduction minimizes the time it takes to bring the data into Civil 3D because it eliminates the need to convert to the Field Book file format in order to produce linework. Finally, it streamlines the creation of surfaces by automatically designating break lines and shots for inclusion in a surface. Clients who are accustomed to Eagle Point, Land Desktop or other office survey packages can quickly realize these savings by using Data Reduction in conjunction with Civil 3D.

“We are very excited about the prospect of developing solutions to help make the transition easier for those migrating to AutoCAD Civil 3D,” explains Brad Heil, Director of Product Development at EaglePoint. “Our newest solution, Data Reduction, will provide a better work flow for users bringing data intoCivil 3D. Not only do you by pass the need to generate a Field Book file, but your points are placed directly into your drawing without the need to establish a survey database.”

Pricing and Availability
A single seat license of Data Reduction is priced at $795 per license and is currently available for sale with shipping to begin in late October 2008. For more information, contact your Eagle Point Account Representative at 1-800-678-6565 or visit www.eaglepoint.com/datareduction.
