The magic of Facebook

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post Some time ago I was so reluctant to get into the social network, convinced that it was for teens that deal their time sending pictures and telling the color of pants they’re walking with. But the differences between this initiative and others like […]

How to make theming in Microstation Geographics

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. In order to don’t lose impulse, more than because of the Alzheimer that occasionally betrays us, here I leave some of the free consultancy I was giving to some guys from Mexico; who maintains their decision of using Geographics. 1. The data There […]

Developing VBA applications with MicroStation

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. To make applications, Microstation supports different languages, including Microstation Development Language (MDL) which is preferred by the Bentley’s gurus. It also supports old Basic since many years ago and once supported Java, hence that version called Microstation J. But to develop with pleasure […]

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 […]

PowerCivil for Latin America, first impression

I have already installed this toy, of which I spoke yesterday; I am referring to V8i 8.11.06.27 version. As input raises a panel where are concentrated all features. At the bottom there are the following tabs: Surfaces Geometry Preferences Drainage Topography Templates Corridors Work modelators Each one has a shortcut menu in the left pane […]

Contours from polylines (Step 2)

In the previous post we had georeferenced an image that contains contours; now we want to turn it to Civil 3D contours. Converting image curves to digital mode For this there are programs that virtually automate the process like AutoDesk Raster Design, equivalent to Bentleys Descartes or ESRI’s Arcscan. In this case I’ll do it […]

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 […]

Failure cursor, Bentley V8i

I have already reached PowerMap V8i Select Series 1 (8.11.05.19) which brings some interesting news. PowerMap, like PowerCivil PowerDraft and do not occupy a MicroStation license, but it is included as a runtime for a price quite low compared with Map + Bentley Microstation. So it runs like an application developed by oneself on Microstation’s […]

Bentley Map, could it be more difficult?

MicroStation Geographics step to Bentley Map suppose an improvement on features the first one tool did, and naturally try to make an effort on gaining users from other solutions such as ArcView, MapInfo and now a whole list of programs low price and open source. Just now that I am working with a regular-sized municipality […]

Bentley Map, my expectation for the Be Together

I have just reached the invitation for the Be Together, an event that awakens on me interesting expectations, after it seems that the economic crisis sits and we must re-enable the opportunities. The best With the global crisis, last year, Bentley launched its online seminars and left for last the Be Inspired. It was not […]

Google is on Facebook and Twitter

Buzz has been integrated within the Gmail environment; in the morning half of the world has spent between 5 and 25 minutes trying to find it a productive use. At first instance and after half a day I have come to this poor conclusion: If you had the mania of reading the mail as it […]

Generating contours with ArcGIS

Making land surveying with a total station, apart from having pinpoint accuracy, it also may be useful for other purposes, given that you have the elevation of each point. In this case, let’s see how generate contour, which was already sawn with AutoDesk Civil 3D, Bentley Geopak and Manifold GIS, so for educational purposes, in […]

Where are Manifold GIS users?

Some time ago, a Dutch technologies’ guru told me this phrase: “Honestly, I am surprised about what Manifold’s page says” “What happens is that I’ve never seen running it on a machine” This week, Patrick Webber – from Spatial Knowledge – has made a reckless statement that is sure it has been shaken the same […]

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 […]

2 egeomates on the fly and 6 links

Long trip, for three days I have been touring with succulent creoles meals. Finally back, many unread mails and the new 12.2-megapixel Kodak camera going very well. Here I leave some readings and news of interest: Bentley extends interoperability to FME. Very interesting, Bentley Map has integrated the chance of interacting data via ETL from […]

ArcMap: Import data from Microstation Geographics

Sometime we talk about that since Geographics you can export / import data with ESRI, creating shp files. But if you have installed ArcGIS, the interoperability extension has very good features, let’s take a look: 1. Activate the extension. This can be done with tools > extensions and here we activate Data Interoperability extension. The […]

Your visitors on Google map

Knowing where visitors come and place them on the map is one of the functions provided by Google Analytics, but there is still no such functionality to display their own maps. The example represents my visitors today, with the drawback that there is no zoom, unless you want to view by country, and those annoying […]

Geoinformatics, latest edition 2009

This, in my opinion, is one of the better positioned magazines in the geospatial topic, it has closed 2009 with a masterful stamp; in its 7 editions kept a systematic review of free software and surveying equipment, in the latter (model 8, 2009) generalizes significant trends that are taking in the geospatial aspect and the […]
