We have added Layer ByValue option to set the layer of objects to a Extended Data value.
MapWorks now imports OpenStreetMap geometry (worldwide) by simply windowing an area inside the drawing. It’s a good idea to set an appropriate layer current first.

This new tool builds insertable images from web sources such as TMS (Tile Map Service) and WMS (Web Map Service) servers. In TMS mode you can produce plan view maps, satellite imagery or terrain images. In WMS mode you can specify any server, get its capabilities and generate an image of a specified pixel size from selected layers.
This new tool labels contours using options such as ends, individual or multiple. The mtext objects generated are field based. That means you can move or copy the labels and the value will change on the next regeneration. The labels also have the background mask turned on, meaning it will hide the underlying contour without any damage.
This new tool generates a 3d (building) pad from a simple polyline at the desired elevation, including automatic daylighting to existing ground. Simply specify parameters and select the geometry.
The KML/KMZ file import was improved.
- Now handles embedded tables in point data converting to MapWorks XData.
- Images embedded in a KMZ are now extracted and copied to the drawing folder and a hyperlink is placed for tools like Image Link Inspect.
- Better handling of path widths and colors resulting in wide polylines, etc.
Added a toggle to allow the cloning of xdata during placement of inserts. If an insert is placed on a point (containing xdata) the xdata will be cloned (copied) to the newly created insert.
Added support for route definitions, if the route points contain <ele> tags a 3dPolyline is created.
The Map Exports shape file export option has been improved. It now detects 3dPolyline objects and creates a SHP file of PolylineZ type.
The Image EXIF Editor now allows you to add GPS Coordinates (and direction) to photos by picking in the drawing.
- Make sure your current drawing has a coordinate system assigned (so the picked valued can be projected back to Lat/Long).
- Initialize the EXIF Editor tool and open the image file to assign coordinates too.
- Click the arrow pointer (4th button) to start the pick process.
- Pick a coordinate point in the drawing where the image was taken.
- Pick a direction point to indicate the direction the camera was pointed.
- Save your photo.
