Data presentation & technically sound user interface

Technically sound user interface
Technically sound user interface
  • Technically sound user controls with popup menus, dialogues, context-related entry fields and symbol bars, e.g. for alignment selection, chainage selection, coordinate definition
  •  MDI technology: Better overview by presenting the project data in multiple graphics windows and different views: base map, profile, cross-section, string views, User-definable Profile view, 3D view and drawing view
  • Cross-window editing: Simultaneous construction in multiple windows, progress can be viewed in all windows
  • Evaluation functions: All evaluation functions are at hand by activating a view, the current construction task is not interrupted
  • Overview window displaying the entire project and any section defined
  • User-defined sections, comfortable zoom and section scroll using the mouse wheel
  • Grouped and auto-updated string windows in the profile, e.g. curvature string, cross-fall string, width string, speed string
  • User-definable display conventions: technically sound data display as an alternative to a working view
  • Map sheet-free project work - objects need to be edited once only. Drawings are updated as simple as a mouse click.
  • Freely positionable report window which logs all editing steps. Links in the report guide to further details. more >

Project Management

CARD/1 Project manager
CARD/1 Project manager
  • Centralized database-driven management of all projects in either a network or locally

  • Working effectively using blanket settings for the project, such as code and display tables and drawing specifications
  • Workflow optimization by evaluating project topics: access to appropriate design parameters and reference data in selection tables and pre-settings by assigning a project to a topic, e.g. sewer design
  • Excellent project overview by using project categories to filter the projects, e.g. according to client or department
  • Plug & Play: blanket definitions and settings for the projects are part of the package, e.g. symbol library, pen table, fonts, line types and templates
