AutoCAD 2010: MapRelate 1.7, released

MapRelate is a complementary component for AutoCAD that allows users to gain instant and direct access to their local or corporately held spatial data from within their native AutoCAD environment. This means a user can combine or overlay their design accurately against detailed spatial data, improving design precision and providing a simple solution for architects, engineers and data administrators to meet legal and customer obligations.

MapRelate Version 1.7 is primarily focussed on supporting the AutoCAD 2010 series from Autodesk (in addition to the 2008 and 2009 versions). MapRelate now includes enhanced data support with direct GML and OS MasterMap reading and support for ESRI personal GeoDatabases. It also has a range of functionality updates including:

- Elevation from attribute support (for contours)

- MPolygon support (configuration and drawing)

- File-based configuration support

- Removed requirement for 'regedit' privileges

- TextAsLine positioning and optimisation fixes

- Text configuration editing fix

- Text layer name dropped suffix fix

- Initial authentication from CAD launch fix

- Editable data sources in configuration

- Identity management for de-duplication (Single Document Interface Mode only)

Duncan Guthrie, Head of Enterprise Information at 1Spatial said: "MapRelate continues to be one of the most cost-effective solutions for spatial information access and visualisation in the CAD environment. This additional platform support and new functionality means that AutoCAD users working on the latest release can benefit from the CAD/GIS capabilities of MapRelate. "
