2009_09_16

  • The InRoads XM XIN file was modified so that a new cell BL_PT_GenericPointSymbol is used to mark point locations for Named Symbologies that don't use their own cell. This should fix the problem where the plus symbol was not exactly centered on the point's location (even though point's coordinates were correct).
  • The WSDOT standard Roadway Template was updated. Fixed the R_Fill point feature name override in Fixed Ditch w/subg intercept template. Added Type 2 retaining wall template plus indivdual components based on wall heights. Added Sawcut & Widening end condition.
  • The WSDOT slopestake macro was enhanced to display all the features in the XML report and allow user to choose which on will be used as the report baseline.
  • Headers in InRoads 2004 INI files were updated to reflect date of last change.
  • The InRoads tool to import/export user settings was added to the WSDOT Toolbox under InRoads Utilities. This utility takes project default configurations, custom toolbars and macros, project files, and survey text import wizard (.tiw) files and copies from a project directory folder location to a backup folder location and vice versa. It is designed to facilitate the saving of InRoads user specific files, especially ones that reside in the Windows registry making it easier to move InRoads files from one PC to another.
  • WSDOT preference set for InRoads command to View Vertical Alignment was modified to better display the High and Low points of the profile if selected by the user.
  • The preferences for viewing vertical annotation were adjusted to that the station format and prefixes are correct.

  • The WSDOT preferences for the Survey Data to Surface command were adjusted to use Horizontal Only stroking.
  • The survey codes for DR_PP_DententionPond and DR_PP_DetentionPondNew were modified so that these features will import into the surface model as 3D breaklines.
  • New WSDOT preferences were added for Surface>View Surface>Single Point>Surface Elevation and Surface=>View Surface>Slope Vector.


2009_05_27

  • Three new WSDOT reports have been added to the InRoads resources to assist with reporting on roadway designs.
    One for opening the IRD directly, one for the Results Report run from the Roadway Designer, and a third for
    the Design Input Report also run from the Roadway Designer.
  • Created a level, named symbology and surface feature for BL_LN_TranverseFeature.
  • The Apply Affixes toggle has been cleared in the WSDOT preferences.
  • The clearance report was modified to include the description and styles for the offset points.
  • Custom operations that were generating the text for manholes was removed. Text sizes for other custom
    operations was adjusted to correct sizes.
  • Preferences for the Geometry=View Geometry=>Station Base/Clearance Annotation command have been updated for
    more consistent annotation.
  • Added new levels and InRoads entries for ST_BG_BridgePier, ST_BG_BridgePierColumn ST_BG_BridgePierNew and
    ST_BG_Bridge_PierColumnNew.
  • New report - WSDOT_HorizontalAlignmentAreaReview - created to show area and perimeter for closed chains.
  • XS_SF_CSBC assigned color 13 so that it is differentiated from XS_SF_QuantitiesFill.
  • A WSDOT Preference for the View Closed Area command has been created.
  • Point annotation configured for most geometry styles to annotate Name, Description, Northing/Easting and
    Elevation. Points will not be annotated by default in the WSDOT preferences, but that option can be easily
    toggled on in the Geometry=>View Geometry=>Horizontal Annotation command.
  • Point symbols will no longer be set to display with the horizontal annotation preferences that produce PS&E
    compliant centerlines. The names of these preferences were changed to WSDOT Existing Alignment and WSDOT
    New Alignment to reflect that they produce alignments only. WSDOT preferences are still set to display points.

2009_03_12

  • The text sizes throughout the WSDOT resources have been adjusted to match the November 2008 Plans Preparation Manual.  An option to use the pre Nov 2008 standards will be available on the WSDOT menu through June 2009.  Please see:

  • SH_RP_OriginalGroundProfile now uses a custom linestyle to solve issues with existing ground profiles not plotting correctly when there are a great number of vertices in them.
  • EngBWemf.plt and EngCemf.plt have been added (back) to the resources. These plot config files are a very good choice for creating files to be inserted into Word or Powerpoint documents.
  • Problem with the XIN that was causing aborts when selecting the Styles tab of the Horizontal Annotation command has been addressed. NOTE: you will need to have synched your project XIN file for this fix to apply. This and other changes will require updating your project XIN files per the Tech Notes:
    InRoads-IPF Synch.pdf
    XM-Updating Project XIN.pdf
  • The WSDOT preference for the View Stationing command has been adjusted so that the major station labels have the format SS+SS.SS. The WSDOT Existing and WSDOT New preferences are unchanged.
  • Added files to help with the process of converting CAiCE geometry data into InRoads, particularly when
    the workflow involves incrementally importing CAiCE data into InRoads via LandXML. See:
    InRoads-GUID for CAiCE to InRoads Geometry.pdf

2008_10_22

  • Survey codes were corrected so that syntax for formerly alphanumeric codes is consistent in the alphonly env of InRoads. Format is consistently JB2T CAiCE code is JBbT InRoads code.

2008_07_30

  • Due to the potential for differing and/or multiple versions of microstation and inroads (V8 and XM) icons to start inroads directly are no longer provided in the WSDOT resources. Users will need to start microstation with the appropriate icon and then activate inroads from within microstation.
  • New macro (C:\cae_rsc\common\AddingGUID\AddingGUID.exe) to assist transferring geometry data from CAiCE to InRoads. This macro helps particularly when the workflow involves incrementally importing CAiCE data into InRoads via LandXML.
  • The SuperElevation Calculator (c:\cae_rsc\common\supercalculator.exe) has been modified to allow users to either hand input super elevation values or use the calculator function and still be able to export the data for use in CAiCE or InRoads.
  • The default InRoads XM template library was updated to add the Alternate Surface switch to the end conditions. Our current production library uses the Alternate Surface as SUBG in the backbone only.
    This library extends the subgrade to the end conditions (the subgrade and finished grade are on the same line outside of the backbone). This change was made to clarify potential subgrade surface deliverables for machine control grading purposes.
  • The use of drafting notes is now better supported in the WSDOT environment. A starting drafting notes file (.dft) is now created when a new project is set up. For existing projects copy :\cae_rsc_test\inroads\Standards\wsdot_dnotes.dft to the …\Design\Standards\projname_wsdot_dnotes.dft
    where projname is the actual name of your project.
  • The slopestake macro C:\cae_rsc\InRoads\Utilities\SlopeStake.xls) was modified with user requested formatting changes.
  • Added new data type RD_MK_BikeSymbolArrow as MicroStation level, named symbology, surface features and geometry point style (geometry styles in XM only).
  • Added new data type ST_BG_Substructure as MicroStation level, named symbology, survey feature and surface feature.
  • Added new data type ST_BG_SubstructureNew as MicroStation level, named symbology, surface feature and
    geometry point style (geometry style in XM only).

      provide ideas for specific scenarios.
    • Updated the Point Name list.
  • The levels and related resources for the Categories TR_IL, TR_SG and TR_TS have been reviewed and revamped. Many cells have been added and many others have been resized. The results have been reviewed and approved by HQ Traffic and various regional Traffic users and should provide a much
    cleaner product.
  • New generic feature styles and geometry styles have been added to our resources. These are for designers' use when inputting features or alignments into InRoads when no standard feature is desired. The style and features are named DS_GE_*** for Design Generic and come in eight colors.
  • The roadway marking levels have been redone and reorganized. The new set of levels contains styles that are visually different for New and Existing and are organized in a simpler manner.
    The Bridge and Tunnel levels and field codes have been consolidated into DNC levels. NOTE: in general these linestyles are not to be used on PS&E contract plans and therefore do not show up under PS&E Base on the WSDOT menu. You can access these linestyles under All Items on the menu.
  • Survey Option Preferences have been added to support the two different methods of creating survey deliverables.
  • A new InRoads style sheet (ListCoordinatesWithPointDesc.xsl) is available that creates a geometry report that includes point descriptions.

Can batch print to PDF files and have pre-defined settings to print InRoads cross sections. A tech note on this subject is available on the WSDOT CAE Website.
  • The super elevation tables for CAiCE, InRoads and the SuperCalculator have been updated to be in conformance with the November 2007 Design Manual changes.
  • A bug that caused the InRoads 8.5 and XM radial buttons to disappear from the Create Project dialog has been fixed.
  • InRoads startup environment has been changed so that the Feature Filter lock is off by default.
  • Extra, unneeded files in cae_rsc\inroads\libraries have been removed.
  • A new level and symbology (Al_HW_CurveDataText) has been created for curve data generated by the Curve Set Annotation command. The curve data text will go to this dedicated level so it can more easily be ported to curve data tables.
  • A new text import wizard (InRoads Fieldbook) has been added to the InRoads XM environment to facilitate surveyors importing InRoads FWD files.
  • Unneeded files have been cleared out from the Cae_rsc\inroads\utilities folder.
  • The field code UGAS was not supported in the resources. This has been fixed.
  • UpdatedLevel filters for InRoads 8.5 and InRoads XM have been updated to reflect all level name changes.
  • A new feature filter to allow viewing of 3D elements only has been added to the InRoads XM Xin file.

2007_12_20

    These points will be a cell mapped to the ST_GU_StructureCenter level.
  • A new code NS is available for use that gives surveyors a code to use for unusual or project specific point features for which there is no other standard code. Surveyors should use the DNC control code where appropriate and should include a comment to describe what the point is. These points will be
    mapped to the BL_PT_NonStandard level.
  • A new code NSL is available for use that gives surveyors a code to use for unusual or project Specific linear features for which there is no other standard code. Surveyors should use the DNC control code where appropriate and should include a comment to describe what the line is. These lines will be
    mapped to the BL_LN_NonStandard level.
  • A new code SSFLP is avaiable for use that gives surveyors a supported code for the flowline elevations for sanitary sewer structures. These points will be a cell mapped to the UT_SS_FlowLinePoint level.
  • Files to support the import of WSDOT survey formats have been added to the enviroment. InRoads users now have the ability to import WSDOT .WAS format files. These files are used in the WSDOT caice to inroads translation process.
