Compass Update - Shapefile Export Improved

Postby Tony C » Jun 22, 2018 7:30 am

Larry Fish has released a new version of Compass on 6/21/2018 with improvements to the Shapefile Export.

"The 3D Exporter in the Viewer now creates a ".prj" "projection-file along with the other shapefile components. Also, since some programs prefer to have shapefiles zipped before they can be loaded, you have the option of creating a zip file that includes all the component files. "

If you haven't upgraded Compass in a while, in May a function to import survey data from plaintext files (e.g. CSV format), and back in January the ability to find and visualize bad loops was greatly improved.

Check it out!
