New Survex Update Adds Terrain Data Support
A new version of Survex, an open source cave-surveying software package, was released last week.
The new version, 1.2.18, adds support for displaying terrain data, improves Aven’s handling of the log from processing survey data, plus an assortment of other fixes and improvements.
Developed by cavers Olly Betts and Wookey, Survex is capable of processing cave survey data from extremely complex caves very quickly. It is licensed under the GPL and is can be run on a variety of platforms such as Windows, Mac and Linux.
Survex is used by many cave survey projects around the world, including the Ogof Draenen survey, the Easegill resurvey project, the Ogof Ffynnon Ddu survey, the OUCC Picos expeditions, and the Hong Meigui China expeditions.
