July 1, 2005
Among the major upgrades, point filtering has been expanded to offer the naming of filters, saving of filters and the use of more than one filter at a time.

SiteComp Inc. released Version 5.0 of its Survey and Civil/Survey software with major upgrades. Point filtering has been expanded to offer the naming of filters, saving of filters and the use of more than one filter at a time. User-definable line connection codes and feature codes enable the user to add methods used in other programs to SiteComp. SiteComp now transfers DGN files directly without the need for DXF conversion. Shape file import and export now include the use of a projection file to determine units. Users can view, select and modify points in a new spreadsheet view. Multiple characters on a figure enable words and/or phrases to be added to a line. New options in parcel commands allow snapping to a closed parcel and picking a parcel from a list. Vertical design changes include the addition of a typical cross section report and the ability to change the offset of the slope intersection at a station. (SiteComp, Minneapolis, Minn.)
