Cable Logging Improvements

Improvements to the UI and functionality of the cable logging functions. Including: explore mode with loggable polygon, auto tail calculation, save as default for logging systems and equipment, improved profile display and more!

Feature Preview:

Horizontal Alignments as Reference Features

Use an additional horizontal alignment as a reference feature. In the video below, we will use a reference feature to control the elevation of the bottom of the ditch.

Upcoming Preview Webinars

Join us for an upcoming Version 9 Webinar:


Using LiDAR & Earthwork Optimization Software to Better Locate Roads

Earthwork optimization technology generates the lowest cost road location (both horizontally and vertically) based on earthwork volume and movement costs, as well as constraints such as minimum grades. Road optimization offers new opportunities to take advantage of more robust survey data, like UAV and LiDAR data, and improve engineering workflows, all before setting out in the field.

In this webinar:

  • We will work with a LiDAR-based digital terrain model
  • Horizontally optimize a proposed road alignment (includes vertical alignment optimization)
  • Review costs and explore the impact of design changes
