A new version of RockWorks17 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following new features, improvements, and fixes:

+ New feature: A Project Image tab has been added to the project group of tabs at the top of the program window. The Project Image is a satellite image, airphoto, scanned map, or any other type of raster image that can be used as a map background image for profile stripmaps and future applications

+ New feature: Include Project Images in profile stripmaps

+ New RCL command NEWPROJECT: which brings up the "Create New Project Wizard" and populates the "New Project Folder" field with data from the RCL script.

+ New feature: Add peripheral images, such as logos or north arrows, to your map borders. Some example images are now installed with the program.

+ New feature: Add a scalebar to your map borders

+ New feature: A Coordinate System Summary is now displayed in a green box to the right of the Datasheet menu barr. If there is a mis-match between the coordinates defined for the datasheet columns and the project, the box will turn red.

+ New feature: "smarts" have been added to the Utilities EZ Mapper and Grid-Based Mapper so that spatial data columns with undefined coordinates and units can be assumed to comply with the project coordinates and automatically updated as such

+ Improvement: Program can warn user if section endpoints are outside the defined project area

+ Fixed problem in which a Production table error prevented opening and updating all of the tables from a RockWorks16 projects into RockWorks17

+ Fixed problem with solid model Krajewskigram symbols.

+ Fixed problem with Extract Solid 3D surfaces.

+ Fixed problem in which the grid model over which a surface is draped was deleted from the project folder.

+ Fixed problem with the Contour Animator and unrecognized image paths

+ Fixed problem closing undocked RockPlot3D windows

+ much MUCH more
