Survex 1.2.15

Powerful cave survey software and a complete cave visualization tool
Survex is a free and open source cave-surveying software package that is actively developing into a complete cave visualisation package.

Moreover, Survex has a sophisticated GUI frontend, no arbitrary limits, and is particularly good for large complicated cave systems, or areas where you need to see the relationships between multiple cave systems. Putting existing data into it should be easy.

Detailed instructions on how to install and use the Survex utility on your Mac are available HERE.

Additionally, Survex is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. Binaries for the Windows and Linux platforms are available on the project's homepage.

Main features:

  • Translations supplied for English, French, German, Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese, Italian, Slovak, Romanian, and US English.
  • Hierarchical survey station naming.
  • Fast processing of survey data in a wide range of formats, aided by sophisticated network simplification techniques

What's New in This Release:
  • cavern: The *cs command now also supports "long-lat", "s-merc" (for "Web Mercator"), EPSG and ESRI codes, "eur79z30", "ijtsk" and "ijtsk03". This means that we now support all the coordinates systems which Therion does, except for a few which don't have X=East and Y=North. The documentation for *cs has also been improved.
  • aven: We no longer persist full screen mode between runs - it's not a standard behaviour of desktop programs, and it's too easy to go into full screen mode from the menu and then not be able to get out again because you don't know the required key shortcut. (ticket#39)
  • aven: When in full screen mode, moving the mouse to the top of the screen now makes the menu bar appear. This provides a non-shortcut way out of full screen mode, as well as making it easier to perform other operations while in full screen mode. The current implementation gives an annoyingly flickery transition, but hopefully we can improve this in future. (ticket#39)
  • (MacOS X version): If built with wxWidgets >= 3.1.0 (which is still in development), we now call EnableFullScreenView() which improves the full screen mode experience on OS X 10.7 and later.
