Have added in a new waterflow option. Click on the waterflow icon or the "View" -> "Calculate Drainage Lines". It asks for the number of seed points. These are random start points of how the water will flow along the surface. The flow is a low speed simulation under low waterflow conditions.

Ezigrade now has a bump map option. A bump map is where a cartographer shades one side of a ridge in a dark hue while shading the other side in a lighter hue. This gives the illusion of 3D and helps to visualize the surface. In the surface colors dialog you will see the extra "bump map" checkbox and a scaling value. Simply tick the box.

We have found a bug with "ponding" display and this now also supports a bump map.

The south west quarter has been graded - hence the lack of ponding.

Couple of bug fix's.

(1) Some grading parameters not being set unless we run the grading routine. This can cause the software to crash.

(2) Volumes of drains.

Fixed bug when displaying angles for closed strings. The start/end angle was being written twicw

Have added in an icon that displays arrows that shows water flow direction.

Ezigrade will now use constraint points while doing a hinged plane design; which can give you greater control of the finished surface.

When picking up points using GPS we can click on an icon to enter a single point, plus an icon to enter in a code on a GPS point.

When staking out to a line using GPS in Ezigrade we now show chainage and offset along the line for operator feedback.

A few GPS parameters are now stored to the registry. This means if you are picking up data with Ezigrade it means you can close and reopen the program and not have to re-enter any setup parameters.

CDS 2.8.4

Have removed some screen flicker when redrawing screens when doing pans and zooms etc.

There was a bug in Cogo -> Chainage and Offset -> Point and Bearing. The start point number was changing midway through calculations leading to an error.
