CDS 2.5.14

Number of improvements

  • When doing joins, calculating bearings for cogo routines; the bearing is displayed to nearest 0.01 of a second. For calculations over kilometers it defaults to 4 decimal places. This means when doing translation from local coordinates to grid such as UTM it comes in to nearest millimeter.
  • option to renumber points along a string in increasing order. Find under strings - utilities
  • feature code library. The 1st column on/off was not being saved, now is.

CDS 2.5.12

Two improvements:

(1) If you have long and skinny breaklines there is now an option to add in extra points along them. Leads to better contours around the previous long skinny triangles. Find option under Options menu - Fix breaklines.

(2) CDS can now display multiple surfaces at the same time. ie triangles, contours and coloured surfaces. This can be used for a couple of practical applications. For example you can create two surfaces that but up against each other and can create contours that don't have to match along the edge. One example is grading two fields side by side, where we want to assume a cliff discontinuity between the two.
Another example is displaying natural and as-built contours on top of each other.

To set the surfaces to be displayed go to File - Plot Parameters - Contours. Set the surfaces in the list box. If nothing set only current active surface is shown as at present:
