12 ODOT Implementation Fall 2014 Winter/Spring 2015
First release of OpenRoads standards for Design Winter/Spring 2015 OpenRoads training material developed for Design personnel Tentative plans are to integrate the training into Bentley Learn Bentley OpenRoads Overview

13 ODOT CADD Standards April 18, 2014 Release
Includes OpenRoads standards in a separate folder ODOTstd/V8istd/OpenRoads Added User and Project configuration files: ODOT_OpenRoads.ucf, ODOT_OpenRoads.pcf Intended to be used with a SS3 installation to gain access to the OpenRoads Survey Standards Bentley OpenRoads Overview

14 ODOT CADD Standards October 2014 Release:
OpenRoads Standards will be absorbed into the new ODOTcadd Standards folders Will not be segregated in a separate sub-folder New Standards will be developed and distributed for SS3 only. No further updates to V8istd and SS2 planned Bentley OpenRoads Overview

15 GEOPAK/OpenRoads Survey
Interface Changes: No longer uses a Survey Project Task Navigation Menu Project Explorer Context Menus On-screen prompts Bentley OpenRoads Overview

16 GEOPAK/OpenRoads Survey
All data stored in the DGN No longer uses the GPK file No longer creates multiple report files in the project directory 3D files required for Survey Processing Full Annotation Scale compatibility Undo! History of changes saved in a log file OpenRoads Implementation

17 GEOPAK/OpenRoads Survey
All data stored in the DGN (cont.) Terrain Models stored in the DGN Terrain Models are shared by referencing Graphical edits update mapping and Terrain Can be exported to GPK and TIN Bentley OpenRoads Overview

18 GEOPAK/OpenRoads Survey
Feature Management via dgn libraries ODOT_Feaures_Survey.dgnlib Defines field codes read from ODOT.smd Defines default survey project settings ODOT_Features_Terrain.dgnlib Defines features and element templates for terrain model display Bentley OpenRoads Overview

19 GEOPAK/OpenRoads Survey
Supports multiple data types Trimble, Leica, Topcon, LandXML, etc… Customizable Text Import Wizard Facilitates ASCII import in user definable data formats Drag and drop data processing Bentley OpenRoads Overview

20 GEOPAK/OpenRoads Survey
