New Features for Version 7.0

  • Support and Display of EPSG Area of Use Polygon data

    Area of Use polygons allow developers to create a method for guiding users with the most appropriate coordinate system or transformation for an area based geopolitical bounding polygons that follow the borders of countries and similar areas around the world. These objects can be viewed in the QT dialogues for selecting coordinate system.

    • Integration in the transformation picker dialog to display these polygons while selecting transformations
    • Supports loading of EPSG polygons into viewers
    • Can also be used to filter results for transformation

  • Completely reworked Vertical Coordinate system handling

    This allows more flexible transformation options when working with high accuracy elevation based data.

    • Dynamic selection of vertical transformations
    • Model now aligns with EPSG Vertical CRS definitions

  • Enhanced PDC interface to calculate bounds of loaded data and filter coordinate systems and transformations
  • New Land Survey support for generating functions for printing and visualization of data in Canadian survey systems (Alberta, Saskatchewan)

    This allows developers to create an interface for users of Alberta and Saskatchewan land grids to plot layouts of points and lines directly from Dominion Land Survey coordinates in the context of the borders of the individual townships and ranges.
