Microstation V8i: Task Navigation

From the most innovative I have seen on the fly in Microstation V8i, is the navigation bar known as Task Navigation which really gives a new face to the commands handling and possibly send the key in to recycling. Why a bar CAD programs have the particularity of having thousands of commands, which are romantically […]

5 trusted minutes for GeoCivil

GeoCivil is an interesting blog aimed to CAD / GIS tools use in the Civil Engineering area. Its author, a compatriot of El Salvador is a good example of the guidance that have taken the traditional classroom to – almost – learning communities in line; without doubt a milestone that thanks to the global connectivity […]

Facebook: videos for surveyors

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. At giant steps Facebook is becoming a common tool for business and education. Being an “Internet of people” companies have become the first look at the people interconnected with each other, which has given it a value beyond the conventional network. One of […]

It’s available PlexEarth Tools 2.0 Beta

One day ago I spoke of the new features that would bring PlexEarth Tools for AutoCAD’s version 2.0, one of the most practical developments that I have seen on Google Earth from a member of the Autodesk Developer Network (AND). Today it has been released the Beta version, which can be downloaded, tested and what […]

Where is Bentley going with the Civil area

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. So this topic is too pretentious, I just want to have a reflection on what I can understand. I had started trying to talk about Geopak, but right now I just get PowerCivil, it saves me a lot, I only have to test […]

PowerCivil for Latin America, first impression

I have already installed this toy, of which I spoke yesterday; I am referring to V8i 8.11.06.27 version. As input raises a panel where are concentrated all features. At the bottom there are the following tabs: Surfaces Geometry Preferences Drainage Topography Templates Corridors Work modelators Each one has a shortcut menu in the left pane […]

Adjusting data based on a more precise survey

This is an example of a common problem that is happening to me now. I have done a survey earlier with a less precise method, possibly with GPS, tape and compass. The fact is that when mounting the total station, we realize that the information occupies a deformation. The matter is that if it is […]

Contours from polylines (Step 2)

In the previous post we had georeferenced an image that contains contours; now we want to turn it to Civil 3D contours. Converting image curves to digital mode For this there are programs that virtually automate the process like AutoDesk Raster Design, equivalent to Bentleys Descartes or ESRI’s Arcscan. In this case I’ll do it […]

Contours from polylines (Step 1)

Earlier we saw how to create contours based on a points’ network taken in the field. Now we’ll see how to do it, from existing curves in a scanned map. As we did with the design of roads, let’s split the process into steps, so that the post won’t go longer than a snake fart. […]

Mouse’s right button

In AutoCAD’s case, it was very common to use the right mouse button to execute the same command again. In Microstation’s case is widely used to reset a command equivalent to the esc key in AutoCAD. But, since AutoCAD 2000 contextual dialog box allows other options, it is questionable whether it is better. For this, […]

What does PlexEarth 2.0 bring?

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. Last year, in November, I made an assessment of PlexEarth Tools for AutoCAD version 1, which among its innovations includes the AutoCAD’s interaction with Google Earth. On this topic there are developments such as StitchMaps, KmLer, CounturingGE, kml2kml; in Plex’s case, in my […]

Generating contours with ArcGIS

Making land surveying with a total station, apart from having pinpoint accuracy, it also may be useful for other purposes, given that you have the elevation of each point. In this case, let’s see how generate contour, which was already sawn with AutoDesk Civil 3D, Bentley Geopak and Manifold GIS, so for educational purposes, in […]

Comparative of booting with CAD/GIS programs

This is an exercise in equal conditions, to measure the time it takes to boot a program since the click on the icon until it is running. For comparison purposes, I used the one that starts in less time, and then a value that acts as an indication (rounded) of the times the quantity is […]

2 egeomates on the fly and 6 links

Long trip, for three days I have been touring with succulent creoles meals. Finally back, many unread mails and the new 12.2-megapixel Kodak camera going very well. Here I leave some readings and news of interest: Bentley extends interoperability to FME. Very interesting, Bentley Map has integrated the chance of interacting data via ETL from […]
