What's New in STAR*NET 10

STAR*NET 10 introduces the following new and enhanced features:

  • 3D Network Plot
    A new 3D network plot is used to display adjustment results
    Semi-transparent 3D ellipsoids are now used in place of 2D error ellipses
    New preset 3D views have been added
    Holding shift and the center mouse wheel down allow a free orbit by moving the mouse
    The ability to set the view rotation point has been added
    The network plot print preview has been updated to display the 3D view
    The network plot print preview has been updated to center and extend the view to the margins
    Please refer to the Help file or Manual for more details.
  • Automatic Iterative Adjustment (Auto-Adjust)
    A new adjustment type has been added to automatically detect and remove outliers
    A new icon has been added to the ribbon, and a new option is available from the Run menu
    The default settings in the auto-adjust dialog should be optimal for most adjustments
    Increasing the maximum standard residual value or outliers removed per adjustment iteration could decrease the adjustment quality
    Increasing the maximum iterations could cause a long adjustment operation
    Click the START button to start the adjustment, and the Stop button to stop the adjustment prior to completion
    A new listing section has been added to review measurements removed
  • Automatic Sideshot Detection
    A new checkbox option has been added to the project and company settings to automatically detect M records with no redundancy and treat them as sideshot records
    Use of this option will lower the observation count and create a more accurate chi-square test because sideshots are not included in the calculation
    This option gives the ability to treat topographic (or other) observations that have been imported as M records by importers or processes that don't denote sideshots as such
  • Online Demo License Activations
    A new licensing system has been added to STAR*NET 10.0 to support online license activations. This system requires a License ID and Password to authenticate any new demo licenses, which can be obtained by contacting MicroSurvey, greatly improving the security and flexibility of the licensing system.

STAR*NET 10 fixes the following important issue:

  • Coordinates displayed in the network plot status bar were shown as N,N and not N,E
