As with most of Altiva's improvements to CADconform, the custom icon support was from a customer wish list. For those large customers with a mixed environment, asks for a combined installer to place all binary files required for both the 32 bit and 64 bit machines during one installation process. Thus the latest release will take care of this requirement.

Call Altiva Software for a demonstration of the newest functionality.

Altiva Software announced that the Dubai Land Department has hired Altiva Software to write custom LISP and ARX programs to help automate processes in cleaning digital data for re-use in populating the Land Department's GIS data warehouse.

The number of lands registered at the Land Department exceeds 50,000 plots all over the emirate. The process of registering real estate data is entirely computerized. All procedures related to sale, purchase, and mortgages are conducted electronically. The Land Department has left the era of manual work behind, keeping pace with advanced technology, which allows the department to provide clients with quality and time-efficient service. (

The requirements for a custom batch clean program were sent to Altiva's development staff and two days later a beta version was delivered. Dubai Land Department was happily surprised with the immediate turnaround. With few changes and added functions, the final version was delivered within a week. Altiva Software will be the software development company of choice from now on.

Do you have a specific function to perform on the CAD drawings? Contact Altiva to investigate writing a Lisp or ARX routine to help automate the process.
