LISTECH released LISCAD Version 7 surveying and engineering software. LISCAD's comprehensive feature set includes rigorous geodetic computations, unlimited model size, traverse and least squares network adjustments, 2D/3D transformations, volume computations, georeferenced background images, profiles and powerful engineering design capabilities. Version 7's editing capability has been enhanced with Undo/ Redo functionality integrated throughout the system. Version 7 also supports numerous new instruments and formats, including Leica Geosystems System 1200, Smart-Station, Geo Office, RoadRunner, GradeStar, XML, LandXML and AutoCAD 2004/2005. LISCAD 7 can create customized HTML or ASCII reports and data exchange formats, and can exchange alignment and profile designs with other systems including MX, InRoads and Autodesk Land Desktop. Version 7 features new methods for transforming between any projections including Grid File (NADCON and NTv2), Bursa-Wolf and Molodensky-Badekas; local azimuths and distances can be entered in a projection and viewed in local or projection values.
