Just added the ability to work

  • Just added the ability to work with classified LAS(z) LIDAR files, taking full advantage of point classifications. User simply downloads a classified LAS file(s) from any source, (ie; “coast.noaa.gov/dataviewer” or “lidar.unh.edu”) Septic Assistant then utilizes a LASTools utility internally to reduce and translate file(s). Data points are then imported into Septic Assistant (utilizing the same method used to import field data that was user collected) for TIN and Contour generation. (scaled and translated points are automatically placed over a scaled and translated GOOGLE IMAGE) No need to learn any other programs or software, GIS software can be quite daunting, time consuming and expansive. Typical vertical precision utilizing LIDAR files is 15cm. (6 inches or better) with the ability to segregate ground elevation points from tree canopy and other obstructions. LAS files are automatically thinned per users requirements, merged and reduced in size to match the GOOGLE IMAGE, reducing LAS files from will over 6million data points to a few thousand.
  • By using available LIDAR data, many other uses of Septic Assistant become evident, for example preparation of site plans & wetlands permitting to name a couple. (program does not replace precise wetland mapping)

  • Added GeoMatrix Geo-Mat systems, all three sizes in lay-down or standup configurations.

  • Refined several functions to acquire ground elevation data directly from the TIN wherever the mouse is located, no need to select any drawing objects.
  • Refined Tank Buoyancy Calculator to take into account tank bottom elevation, original grade and ESHWT elevations at the tank location, there is no need to manually enter any data except depth of cover over the tank (including the use of an extended base, aka anti-flotation tanks).
