Improved Linux Version of Survex Released
Hot on the heels of its second June release, a third new version of Survex, an open source cave-surveying software package, has been released this month.
The latest version, 1.2.20, adds assorted terrain data improvements, improved integration with modern Linux desktop environments as well as a few other fixes and enhancements. One such change now allows clinometer readings in diving style data.
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.
