AGT Topo - Feature List

General

  • Create TOPO maps, boundary surveys, worksheets and other maps.
  • Create DTM surfaces including contours.
  • Split screen with calculation on the left and graphics on the right.
  • Unco/redo

 

DTM / Contours

  • Fast TIN generation (50,000 points in 10 seconds)
  • Break-line support
  • Major and minor contour intervals
  • Easy contour labeling
  • Adjustable contour smoothing

 

COGO - Coordinate Geometry

  • COGO calculations are shown on the left side of the screen
  • Retain and review the last 2000 lines of calcualtions, scroll back at anytime
  • Cut/copy/paste, edit and print text window (calculations)
  • Lock text window to avoid accidental edits
  • Select points by point number or pick them from the screen. Also use COGO points with CAD routines
  • Instrument setup by points or mouse pick
  • Traverse, curve traverse, sideshot
  • Inverse, area, closure
  • Elevation and slope reduction
    • None (2D)
    • Slope distance / zenith angle
    • Slope distance / vertical angle
    • Horz. distance / direct elevation
  • Radial Stakeout
    • Optional search radius
    • Optional text filter
    • By point name or range
  • Station/Offset, set and inverse
    • Along a line or arc by points
    • Along a baseline (like a centerline)
    • Set or inverse by point names
    • Set or inverse by mouse pick
  • Three point curve
  • Rotate/translate
    • Using points only
    • Both points and linework
  • Set points
    • Manually enter coordinates
    • Pick location in drawing
  • Points managements
    • Enter/edit points
    • List points (used, unused, all)
    • Compare points
    • Select points by description
    • Select all points
    • Points manager (spreadsheet)
    • Delete points

Units

  • US Survey Feet
  • International Feet
  • Feet and inches
  • Meters
  • Chains and links
  • Poles
  • Rods
  • Links
  • Varas
  • Varas (texas)
  • Switch between units at almost any time

COGO Points

  • Alpha-numeric point names
  • 16 character point names
  • 64 character point description
  • 12 different point symbols
  • Point label options
    • Point name
    • Northing, Easting
    • Elevation
    • Description
  • Auto-scaling point labels (labels can stay the same size regardless of zoom size)
  • Prompt for descriptions, on or off
  • Specify separate layer for new COGO points
  • Set default point properties
  • Point Protection
  • Show/hide all points
  • Call up points by name, or pick them with the mouse.
  • Points can be used in CAD routines. For example, when drawing a line, you can specify the line from point 10 to point 11

 

CAD / Graphics

  • Line, arc, tract (polyline) point, block (symbol), text, multi-text and arc-text entities.
  • Over 30 line-types
  • Insert images for background or tracing
  • Mouse picks automatically snap to nearest COGO point, endpoint, intersection or object (can be turned off)
  • Additional precision snaps
    • Snap to midpoint of line or arc
    • Snap to center of arc
    • Snap perpendicular to line or arc
    • Snap tangent to an arc
    • Snap direction parallel to an existing line
  • Enter locations by lat/lon
  • Move Endpoint command.
  • Move, copy (with repeat), rotate, scale, edit, change and delete commands
  • Nudge command to "bump" objects into position with arrow keys
  • Group and un-group objects
  • Break, trim, extend and trim to intersection
  • Fillet, offset and offset tract
  • 256 Layers

 

Blocks (Symbols)

  • Blocks are symbols that you can create, modify, and share with others
  • Create your own custom blocks
  • Include custom data fields such as type, size, PLS# or whatever else you need
  • Map blocks to feature codes to automaitcally insert blocks from field files or imported ASCII files
  • Modify a block, all blocks in the drawing automatically update as well
  • Import and export custom blocks between other drawings
  • Share blocks with all users on your network
  • Includes over 40 blocks ready for you to use or modify
  • Blocks are compatible with AutoCAD blocks

 

Annotations

  • Automatic bearing/distance on lines
  • Bearing/distance automatically updates if line changes directon or length
  • Custom bearing/distance placement (above the line, below the line, cast off, etc.)
  • Drawg bearing or distance to a new location
  • Automatic area for tract objects
  • Area is automatically recalculated if tract shape is modified
  • Annotate curves with arc-text command
  • Curve and line tables

 

Import/Export

  • Import COGO points from ASCII, DXF and ProCogo files (all versions)
  • Import another AGT Topo drawing into the current one. For instance, import the drawing of an adjoining lot into the current drawing
  • Export to Google Earth via a KML file
  • Export to a shape-file
  • Export drawing to a bitmap image file (then load image into a word processor perhaps)
  • Expor to a legacy ProCogo 2005/LT COGO file (points only)
