MicroSurvey STAR*NET 9.1

MicroSurvey Software Inc. is pleased to announce the release of MicroSurvey STAR*NET 9.1, the latest version of the industry-leading STAR*NET least squares network adjustment suite. Perpetually licensed with five available feature levels to fit your needs – Lev, Standard, Plus, Pro and the new Ultimate edition – STAR*NET gives users the choice between several tiers of features to ensure they are getting precisely the tools they need for least-squares network adjustment.

According to Brian Sloman, MicroSurvey Development Manager and STAR*NET Product Manager, "STAR*NET Ultimate users can adjust large networks containing up to 65,000 stations, cross-connected with a virtually unlimited number of observations between them, which many agencies performing large adjustments will appreciate.  And with the new command line interface, STAR*NET Ultimate users can integrate their STAR*NET adjustments with other scripted processes as part of a total solution for automated adjustments, slope monitoring, and other complex workflows. As a bonus, STAR*NET Ultimate and Pro users can now run all of the standalone data conversion utilities for MicroSurvey FieldGenius, Spectra Precision Survey Pro, Trimble Access, Carlson SurvCE, Leica Captivate and other formats without purchasing any seperate licenses.  Not to mention all the little enhancements and fixes that just make STAR*NET easier to work with on a daily basis."

STAR*NET 9.1 is a FREE upgrade for all STAR*NET users with a current Annual Maintenance Subscription, and a free, fully-functional 10-day trial version is available for demonstration purposes. Download STAR*NET 9.1 today!

  • Copy Path and Filename - A new Context Menu when right-clicking on a data input file lets you copy the path and filename of the selected project file to your clipboard
