  5. Hi,

    I am a CFedS in the States, which means I work in the US Public Land system and I use your software. Can you please implement the couple (really just a few) calculations necessary to restore corners in the PLSS?
    Great product by the way.

  6. Would like to see the ability to create custom point coding for AutoMAP line work other than the XYZ, SDR or AIMS methods. Being able to tell AutoMAP what coding to use for start or end line, curves, etc. would allow new users to have coding that fits their current field practice. Example:
    + Begin Line
    - End Line
    PC = Point of Curvature
    POC = Point on Curve
    PT = Point of Tangency
    / = Intersect
    * = Wildcard

    This would save time for the field crews not having to learn a new coding method especially when running multiple…

  7. Calculate Geodetic Bearings/Azimuths between GPS points with Forward, Back and Mean bearings/azimuths, Grid bearings and distances and ground distance as the Trimble Geomatics Office did.

  8. We do a lot of work as-builting pipelines and would love a command that uses input/output scale factors to calculate chainage on a 2d and 3d polyline

  9. creating a circle, slot or rectangle around text objects, like the "tcircle" command does in other CAD packages. Or even better create filled objects around text object, like a wipeout, but where you can select any colour for the wipeout.

  11. Add a command to break an object on one point with one command
    like autocad
    also add a command to break all crossing objects or break all crossing objects with one object I found a some lsp routines that work on autocado but not on microsurvey that are great

    this is the data from the readme

    BreakAll + BreakObjects

    by Charles Alan Butler (@ theSwamp.org)

    Break intersecting objects in AutoCAD

    Load the LSP file with APPLOAD and start the
    "break
    __" command (myBreak, BreakAll...)

    BreakObjects21.lsp: the latest version

    BreakAll.lsp: the older (original) version

  12. 1) The ability to select by common description. I know we can sort then select but this would be only one step.
    2) The ability to then place symbols and control their scale via those description selected. Sort of like AutoMAP but for small jobs.

  13. Would like the program to have the ability to automatically know if I'm using just one number or a range by looking for the ".." in the input instead of having to tell it.

  14. Survey Road/ MH covers WITHOUT surveying all four corners?
    I know that in AutoMAP you can insert a symbol and have it scaled & rotated to previous point. Although the centre of the symbol go onto the point instead of a corner,( if you where inserting a square or rectangle).But its a shame that after surveying say two of the corners you can just then code with a width say .600mm and the above rotine could then draw the rest of the line work. You could also say .600 for CW and -.600 CCW.
    Unless someone has a better way…

  15. College level courses are typically 15 weeks in length. How about renewing 30d demo periods on a student-by-student basis via a request sent to Microsurvey by College Prof's. MsCad verify class lists via college registration perhaps.

  16. In some cases, the history becomes irelevant, so I'd like to clear it so that it IS relevant from that particular point forward

  17. drape entered alignment to point cloud so profile slices can follow normal to it automatically at specified intervals. Allow points created or selected from the slice to have different descriptions without having to save each different description set before changing descriptions. This would greatly enhance the extraction of linework from the cloud

  18. I would like to have a desc/code list (or completion) added to MSCAD. When storing points in the drawing it would be helpful if you could pick the description from the Automap list like in FG. As you type the desc the list could condense. When the Automap contains a lot of descriptions it can be difficult to remember them all.

  19. Cuando colectamos 20 o 30 puntos en el campo con un total station, lo hacemos generalmente Ocupado en 1 y BS 2, pero cuando todos esos puntos los trasladamos y rotamos sobre unos puntos calculados anteriormente, no se puede seguir colectando sin chequear el BS. Debe haber un modo manual de hacer BS en FGenius. Si el total station continua en el mismo punto y aun conserva el angulo original, no veo razon por la que se deba repetir una rutina ya hecha/

  20. Would like to see that during the "do_proportion" command, it remembers the previous distance I enter since I may have many lots of the same distance over a long consecutive block.
