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!

Thanks to Howard Kalnitz for pointing out the update.
