Feature 2

New SUPERHATCH command to create hatches using images, textures, blocks, external references

The SUPERHATCH command in ActCAD introduces a versatile way to create hatches by incorporating images, textures, blocks, and external references.

Feature 2

Create reports and report templates, extract data to tables and .xls files

Users can extract data from their drawings and organize it into tables, which can then be exported to both standard table formats and .xls files, providing flexibility in data management and analysis.

Feature 2


"FLOW DIRECTION" tool is typically used in GIS (Geographic Information Systems) applications for analyzing the direction of flow in a surface, such as water flow in a terrain model or drainage analysis.

Feature 2


It export of map drawings or layouts to PDF format, providing a convenient way to share or distribute map data and designs in a universally accessible and printable format..

Feature 2


It allows users to export selected shapes or entities from their drawing to other formats compatible with various software applications, facilitating interoperability and collaboration in design.

Feature 2


It allows precise scaling and alignment of raster images by assigning real-world coordinates to known reference points, ensuring accurate integration with the drawing's coordinate system for mapping tasks.

Feature 2


"Image Boundary" refers to the perimeter or outline of a raster image or scanned map within the drawing environment. This boundary delineates the extent of the image and is often used for spatial reference and analysis in mapping applications.

Feature 2


ActCAD Mapdrafter allows users to accurately scale and align raster images or scanned maps within their drawing environment. This process involves specifying known reference points on the image and assigning corresponding real-world coordinates to them.

Feature 2


sequential numbering system applied to map features or elements within a drawing. This numbering scheme helps organize and identify different components of the map, facilitating data management.

Feature 2


enumerates the total number of map elements or features within a specified area or category. This count provides quantitative information about the distribution and density of map data

Feature 2


It indicates the direction in which features are positioned relative to a reference point or axis, aiding in navigation, analysis, and interpretation of spatial data.

Feature 2


In Mapdrafter, "Map Markers" are symbols or feas used to represent specific points of interest, locations, or features within a map drawing.

Feature 2

New ANGLE command

The ANGLE command in ActCAD allows users to specify precise angles for drawing and editing objects, facilitating accurate geometric constructions and transformations within the CAD environment.

Feature 2


optimizes map data by removing duplicates, simplifying geometry, and correcting topology issues, ensuring high-quality and organized geographic datasets.

Feature 2

4 Point Image Rectification

It allows users to accurately scale and align raster images or scanned maps within their drawing environment by identifying known reference points and assigning corresponding real-world coordinates, ensuring precise integration of images with the drawing's coordinate system.

Feature 2


"Centroid" refers to the geometric center point of a polygonal feature within a map drawing. It represents the average position of all the points defining the polygon's boundary and is commonly used for spatial analysis, labeling, or as a reference point in GIS
