What's news

27/Feb/07After a year of development a new release of AutoDEM is available. The new version number is 1.6.2beta. This version introduces a lot of new features and bug fixes since the previous 1.0.2 version. Actually, most of the core code has been rewritten to improve software flexibility. New layers (toponyms, mesh), new related tools, and new filters were introduced. Most features associated to a layer are described in the context menu (right-click) on the layer name. AutoDEM has now a multi-language interface (for the moment, English and Français... Italian will come in the next release, translators are welcome). A cool feature let you import a georeferenced map or DEM layer from a WebMapService server. More details on all these new features will come soon in the Help section!
