I-model, the new Bentley bet

For a moment I had my doubts, if Bentley was talking about a new format to replace the dgnV8, then, I thought it was a kind of compressed format like the kmz with Google Earth kml. Many months ago I did a post, wanting to assume the meaning of the “i” in the V8i, after […]

The software value

The price is in the box, the cost in our motivation, the utility in the use we give it, the value in our appreciation. This is a rather sensitive issue depending on the point of view of the one who is giving his opinion, on what he works at, and on the one who pays […]

How to work on the boundary of two UTM zones

We often face the problem of working within the limits of the UTM zone, having a lot of problems (Spanish Idiom: “ver a palitos” to have a problem of difficult solving) because the coordinates do not work there. The reason of the problem Some time ago I explained how the UTM, coordinates operate, here I […]

Global Mapper, working with dgn format

Reading the dgn format is a standard in most of GIS or CAD programs, but several of these software (including Manifold GIS and gvSIG) are still reading the V7 format. AutoCAD and ArcGIS have already achieved it. Let’s see how Global Mapper does it: 1. Reading dgn V7 It is interesting that files can be […]

Downloading Google Earth’s street maps

As far as we now, there is no program (not yet) that can download Google Earth’s streets in vector format. Although this task can be done using Open Street Maps; what a pity! it doesn’t exist all the cities in this software. But if someone is interested in Google Earth’s streets; the solution would be […]

Difference between images of Google Earth Pro and Google Earth free

There are many myths about it, since some who claim to see the female neighbor bronzing nude to those who find no difference between the versions. Let’s see if we speak from this topic with a couple of examples: 1. Yes, there is difference in resolution What happens is that the difference in resolution is […]

Removing the Ribbon in AutoCAD 2009?

Many users of the old guard did not like much the Ribbon style design of AutoCAD 2009 menus, but not worth much kicking. It’s only a problem of neuronal disorientation, just as when we were working on a different drawing board, where the basic tools were not in the same disorder as ours. It happened […]

The opportunity is not only to learn but for specialists, which can track students and build online training manuals.

Convert images to vector

Some time ago, the digitizing tables were the output for vectorizing print maps; then the scanner arrived to the office, although the task does not just apply to scanned maps, but for others that were converted to image or pdf and for the ones which we don’t have vector format. The procedure that I am […]

If gvSIG friends fulfilled their promise, next Monday July 27th we will have the 1.9 stable version. So far the test has been great, according to the perceived volume of distribution lists. While waiting on Monday, by which time I hope to have the satisfaction of congratulating the performance of speech, at the cost of […]

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. I just spoke to a technician, the kind that only calls when it’s a terrible situation (*) and presented me this problem: I have the view, but note that it does not have in the bottom part, the zoom controls, the mound of […]

List of Software I reviewed

I spoke recently about what means in statistics to talk about software, specifically 11 programs which represents 50% of the visitors coming by keyword visits. It is difficult to give recommendations of which software is better, because it depends on the context (and the money) conditions, the more I can aspire is to write and […]

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 […]
