It’s available PlexEarth Tools 2.0 Beta

One day ago I spoke of the new features that would bring PlexEarth Tools for AutoCAD’s version 2.0, one of the most practical developments that I have seen on Google Earth from a member of the Autodesk Developer Network (AND). Today it has been released the Beta version, which can be downloaded, tested and what […]

Where is Bentley going with the Civil area

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. So this topic is too pretentious, I just want to have a reflection on what I can understand. I had started trying to talk about Geopak, but right now I just get PowerCivil, it saves me a lot, I only have to test […]

Adjusting data based on a more precise survey

This is an example of a common problem that is happening to me now. I have done a survey earlier with a less precise method, possibly with GPS, tape and compass. The fact is that when mounting the total station, we realize that the information occupies a deformation. The matter is that if it is […]

Mouse’s right button

In AutoCAD’s case, it was very common to use the right mouse button to execute the same command again. In Microstation’s case is widely used to reset a command equivalent to the esc key in AutoCAD. But, since AutoCAD 2000 contextual dialog box allows other options, it is questionable whether it is better. For this, […]

G! tools, facilitating the use of Bentley Map

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. A few days ago I started a development on .NET, with which I hope to settle the Bentley Map’s limitation with its Geospatial Administrator. For this, I caught an old pupil with which we began to egeomate with xfm when he came out […]

Convert degrees / minutes / seconds to decimals

Some time ago I’ve been ask for this, and in view the friend seems a little rushed and today is a day to celebrate many things, here I leave one tool that allows you to move from degrees/minutes/seconds to decimals. Why a table It is common, finding coordinates that are in degrees- minutes- seconds format, […]

Comparative of booting with CAD/GIS programs

This is an exercise in equal conditions, to measure the time it takes to boot a program since the click on the icon until it is running. For comparison purposes, I used the one that starts in less time, and then a value that acts as an indication (rounded) of the times the quantity is […]

CAD: Send backward, bring forward

When you have linear objects without thickness or fill, it seems not to be important, but sooner or later is a nuisance (Spanish idiom: “es una lata”, an extremely problematic thing); although in the layers (levels) must be the wisdom. It happens that I have this property that, when filled, covers what is behind as […]

CAD: Changing background color

Usually we use the white or black color for background, change is a frequent activity for reasons of visualization. In this example we’ll see how this is done with AutoCAD and Microstation With AutoCAD before 2008 It is done in Tools> Options, in case you are with Civil 3D or an application that doesn’t display […]

Those of us, who are users of graphical applications, are always expectant that equipments have sufficient working memory. In this, CAD / GIS programs has always been questioned or measured in terms of the time it takes to perform daily activities such as: Spatial Analysis Correction and image registration Deployment of massive data Managing data […]

CAD, GIS… or both?

… Selling capabilities of what free software does is more difficult than to convince an official to commit a felony punishable (piracy) for what expensive software doesn’t do. Bentley has recently launched a campaign to promote Bentley Map, using as an argument, it is not necessary to be thinking separately if they can be handled […]

Bentley Cadastre: differences with Bentley Map and Power Map

From MicroStation Geographics in 2004 it was launched the project known as XFM, which within the same V8 dgn format included XML capabilities. After the 8.9 version known as XM Bentley discontinued, Geographics launches Bentley Map, a different smoked regarding the handling of data, but with the same logic operation.
