EuroSpeleo 2016 Sessions

What's new in Survex

Session code: OT12

Oral / Technical, Main EuroSpeleo Conference

Mr . Wookey


Survex was first released in 1991, and remains popular cave survey software. It has gained significant new functionality in the last few years, and this is probably not widely known, so it's time for an update.

The talk will cover Survex's status on different OSes, and its new knowledge of co-ordinate systems and terrain models. I will try to collect feedback from users on future developments, and perhaps hope to enthuse some contributors.
