Urbano Raster & Vector 9.0 by StudioARS

Productivity tools for raster and vector maps

 

Urbano Raster and Vector software provides the key improvements over a traditional workflow include image grouping, smart display tools and layer filtering.
Supported raster file types – .tfw, .jgw, .ecw and GeoTIFF
Supported vector file types – .dwg, .dgn, .dwf and .pdf..

 

Urbano Raster & Vector 9.0 Key Features:

  • Grouping (When there are many external documents (raster images, vector drawings, etc.), it is very helpful to make document groups. Groups can be created based on any criteria, e.g. raster images can be divided by scale, source or location; vector drawings can be grouped according to content (parcels, infrastructure, DTM elements, etc.) or position. Grouping files makes it easier to manage them and to choose the appropriate ones depending on the current task at hand.)
  • Connecting raster images (To connect a raster image with a project you need to position the image according to its insertion parameters. You can read the insertion parameters from an external file (TFW, JGW) or directly from within the files (ECW, GeoTIFF). Urbano has a proprietary algorithm for reading such information.)
  • Drawing boundaries (Inserting many raster images or drawings and working with them in real time can be a time consuming task that also requires a significant amount of computing resources. Therefore it can be very useful to draw only the boundaries of attached files with the name of the raster image or drawing file. This function allows you to draw these boundaries very fast and to avoid consuming too much computer resources, even if you have several thousand files.)
  • Inserting (You can choose different methods of inserting files into a project. The simplest method is just to pick a point where a certain file (raster or drawing) should be inserted. You can draw a line or polygon and all file boundaries it crosses will be inserted. While inserting drawings inside a defined polygon, you can choose whether you want to attach either the whole file or just entities which are inside or crossed with a defined boundary. Lastly, you can zoom to a certain part of the project and cover the whole view with files from the current collection.)
  • Attaching drawings (You can attach drawings in two ways: as an external reference (XREF) or as a basic drawing (a CAD block). You can also create file collections from DGN and PDF file types. Those files can be attached only as external references.)
  • Content filtering (While attaching files you can use content filtering, e.g. you can filter attached files based on layer or entity type. This function is not available for attaching as an external reference (XREF).)

 

Core functions

Grouping

When there are many external documents (raster images, vector drawings, etc.), it is very helpful to make document groups. Groups can be created based on any criteria, e.g. raster images can be divided by scale, source or location; vector drawings can be grouped according to content (parcels, infrastructure, DTM elements, etc.) or position. Grouping files makes it easier to manage them and to choose the appropriate ones depending on the current task at hand.

Connecting raster images

To connect a raster image with a project you need to position the image according to its insertion parameters. You can read the insertion parameters from an external file (TFW, JGW) or directly from within the files (ECW, GeoTIFF). Urbano has a proprietary algorithm for reading such information.

Drawing boundaries

Inserting many raster images or drawings and working with them in real time can be a time consuming task that also requires a significant amount of computing resources. Therefore it can be very useful to draw only the boundaries of attached files with the name of the raster image or drawing file. This function allows you to draw these boundaries very fast and to avoid consuming too much computer resources, even if you have several thousand files.

Inserting

You can choose different methods of inserting files into a project. The simplest method is just to pick a point where a certain file (raster or drawing) should be inserted. You can draw a line or polygon and all file boundaries it crosses will be inserted. While inserting drawings inside a defined polygon, you can choose whether you want to attach either the whole file or just entities which are inside or crossed with a defined boundary. Lastly, you can zoom to a certain part of the project and cover the whole view with files from the current collection.

Attaching drawings

A flexible way to add, import or export data associated with topology elements. User data is accessible like any other project data and can be used as part of any configuration. Additional network data can be You can attach drawings in two ways: as an external reference (XREF) or as a basic drawing (a CAD block). You can also create file collections from DGN and PDF file types. Those files can be attached only as external references.

Content filtering

While attaching files you can use content filtering, e.g. you can filter attached files based on layer or entity type. This function is not available for attaching as an external reference (XREF).
