The possibility to consult the BIM properties of the selected object has been integrated into the context menus.
New coordinate systems engine
The coordinate system transformation engine has been updated to version 9 of the powerful PROJ library, which transforms geospatial coordinates from one SRC to another. In practice, this makes it possible to use more than 8,000 reference systems used around the world, including the most recent ones.
These can be projected, geographic 2D, geographic 3D and geocentric. In addition to the EPSG, other authorities such as ESRI and IGN France have been included. The installation also contains multiple grids and geoids from different countries.
In addition, if there are several conversion alternatives, the most accurate option is automatically chosen, without the need to manually select the transformation.
New selection of coordinate systems
The selection of the source or destination SRC can be made by name, region, code or latitude and longitude.
