Geo Web Publisher, it seems easier

Reviewing what now Geoweb Publisher V8i is, it is clear that this product has had too much evolution, but the logic remains, there is a big change from what it was a primitive tool for geo-engineers to publish their data in vector and what now is a proposal for geospatial purposes. I have received V8i […]

eCADLite: Another alternative to Microstation

Dgn format has been very stable, many GIS / CAD programs recognize it but edit it natively has always been a privilege to Microstation although only it had been three variations of the format: GISD, V7 and V8. In the DWG format case, Microstation has managed to open and edit it natively, like all programs […]

Migrating features from Geographics to Bentley Map

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. Some time ago we have being speaking of what it takes to make the leap from Microstation Geographics to Bentley Map; we talked about how both schemes work and some important benefits of Bentley Map. In a preview post I spoke how it […]

Geographics tools adapted in Bentley map

Already several days ago I had been speaking of BentleyMap, we recently considered the data migration and the ability to automate the process, in this case we are going to show an example of customization of Geographics tools I had and that was needed when we started to operate xfm. Before Bentley Map’s left, in […]

Hazards of my ArcGIS course

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. Before telling them he was going to develop training in the use of ArcGIS 9.3, with a half enormous mode for the distance, my short time and students’ occupations. Now I leave some conclusions: About the methodology: If only everything were so simple. […]

Bentley Power Civil for Spain

Bentley Systems Spain has announced a podcast for the official release of what has been called Power Civil for Spain; a Civil Engineering solution’s area leaned for Spanish market. What Power Civil for Spain is Power Civil, contains GeoPack’s required tools and other associated applications that solves major routines for civilian infrastructure design and implementation […]

Bentley changes the presenting form of its annual event

For several years Bentley Systems has made annual events which include the excellence award for innovation in technology implementations and, at the same time, give us conferences where we can know latest innovations, and seminars based on their customers or thematic experts experiences. In last years conferences carried out by Bentley Institute changed their presenting […]

What’s new in AutoCAD 2010

AutoCAD 2010, Wow! This is the name given after Heidi’s review to this AutoCAD version, just a year after her talk about AutoCAD 2009. Coming from an expert woman (Spanish Idiom: “tia”) who takes 17 years seeing what is new each year, may be it would be appropriate to take a look. Several of them […]

Testing a NetBook in CAD/GIS

Some days ago I had considered testing how it works a Netbook in the geomatic medium, in this case I have been testing an Acer One that rural technicians commissioned me to buy on a visit to the city. The test helped me to decide if my next purchase will be invested on other high […]

The slow progress of CAD integration– Costs

After SAICIC’s death, several Mexican programs appropriated this market, making it one of the engineering areas that was first automated. I remember that sometimes I’d trained costs’ course, and it was necessary to test different applications (available in those days), such us NewWall, Opus, Campeon Neodata. The latter seemed better even it bothered me I […]

Bentley Geospatial Administrator, a toothache

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. The Bentley Geospatial Administrator, is one of the things that Bentley has not been able to make digestible and neither have been many exercises to explain its implementation in a real project. The purpose of this tool, which is a complement to Bentley […]

Bentley Cadastre

Bentley Cadastre is a special application built on Bentley Map from the XM V8.9 version and as its name implies, it is for this task, the Cadastre. Bentley Map is required for its operation, and it is equivalent to a controlled cadastral maintenance module. Priority focus of this application is the topology integration, a property […]

Convert kml to dxf files

A while ago there was a practical application from Zonums’s friend that made this role without much hindrance.  Unfortunately, the friend was very strategic to create an expiration date for its solution, so that if you open it now says it is expired; it is very likely that he sell the license … blah, blah, […]

Working shape files with AutoCAD

The shape files, known as .shp files will be quaternary formats in matter of technology but we can not avoid that they have been popularized as much as it was ArcView 3x. This is why they are still widely used, to the extent that most platforms especially geospatial have developed routines to operate them. Even […]

2011: What to expect: CAD Platforms

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. Hello my friends, holidays have left like firecrackers, nacatamales (*) and New Year hugs. It’s good to be back to this side of life in a year good for news. AutoCAD comes from 3 years of having given back to interface and is […]

GvSIG 2, first impressions

In the course we decided to try the new GvSIG version, which although is not yet declared stable, it can be downloaded different builds to see what happens. I downloaded the 1214, and even I hoped to prove the functionality of point and line symbols as xurxo told me, apparently I have to try the […]
