GPSeismic Version 2018.0 Release Notes
1) In the Garmin IMG utility made the  point symbols in list unique for better
selection and now allow none for station in shape point to IMG conversion.
Also fixed a potential problem is selecting a local coordinate system for imported
Requested by Alan Stanton of WesternGeco.
2) The previous number of Excel rows in the Report Builder was 65,535. This has
been changed to 1,048,576 rows.
1) The Shape Toolbox now has ability to clip line and polygon shape files and
simplify line and shape file geometry. The shape analyzer tool now has ability
to determine total number of vertices in a line or polygon shape file.
2) When processing the SNS MAP table after the user configures it, QuikMap is
now clipping polyline shapes to the boundary, simplifying polyline shapes, clipping
polygon shapes to the boundary, simplifying polygon shapes, and checkerboarding
polygon shapes.  The same is also done via the SNS menu to "Prepare Polygon
and Polyline Shape files...".  Note that each routine will delete shape files which
fall completely outside the boundary.
3) In the SNS utility, there is now a setting for preparation of polygon shape files.
This is a tiling value where the suggested values are 50 if in meters and 150 if
in feet. If no DEM is used, 500 should be used.
4) When importing multiple files into the SNS utility Map spreadsheet, the utility is
now placing points on top, lines after that, polygons after that,
and rasters on bottom.
5) The SNS configuration utility now allows the user to override the chosen
sound level.
6) When using the SNS configuration utility, you can now select a file to be used
for a boundary shape file or use a utility to help you make one.
7) Added an SNS menu item that provides ability to create station,x,y,z CSV file.
Only prompt is to specify file path/name.
1) In SNS Vibe manager the duplicate list is now a spreadsheet with number of
duplicates, unique number of duplicates, and per-vehicle contribution to the number.
Initial sort is now by Vehicle name with secondary on Vehicle number, however,
column sort now possible. User field selection is now implemented. Vehicle headings
now appear on map and can be sized and colored. Time span values for each duplicate
group is now displayed and computed in seconds to 6 decimal places. Precise, local
or utc time can be chosen for the time span. Preplot, time, mode and precision
pass/fail list is provided on the main UI. Preplot (or COG) sizeable halo can now
be displayed. A refresh button has been added on Settings tab page. An option now
exists for adding single points to the list. Up/Down buttons have been added to
speed up duplicates selection.
2) Fixed a problem in SNS log file batch import that  where long path names would fail.
3) Added defensive code for importing SNS System logs that were created in
early builds.
4) Small change in the Fill Postplot utility in which you can elect to exit the
dialog or have it remain visible.
Requested by Charlie Johnson with BTW.
5) If an SNS system is run in the mode where the point number that is recorded is the
closest preplot, it is possible that when intervals are small and the vibe spread
is large, some vibes will incorrectly assign the wrong number to the shot point.
We have added an SNS menu item which will reassign a point number to records based on
time matching. There are two methods. One allows the user to specify a reference
vibe which is always close to the preplot point and assumed to have the correct point
number. The utility uses the time of this reference vibe and finds all other points
which are within a user specified number of seconds of the reference vibe time. Those
points are assigned the point number of the reference. In the second method, the user
specifies an observer log that contains points shot and the time they were shot. The
utility will find points that match the time in the log and reassign point numbers.
6) Added an SNS menu item which will find all SNS type 9 point records with
null Selected_Point fields in a table and use a distance proximity test using points in
the Preplot table to assign a Selected_Point station. This utility will first prompt for
a Log table that contains the null Selected_Point records. It will then prompt for a
distance tolerance in map units. The utility will provide how many null Selected_Point
records were analyzed and how many were assigned a station name. Additionally,
the Event_Description field will be changed to "Point name from preplot match".
7) Added an option for export seismic/transform file routine which, when used,
suppresses transformation of the easting northing fields and but not the lat/long fields.
This option con be used to produce a desired hybrid coordinate file where you want
local grid and geographics in another datum. Use with care.
SNS Locator
1) You can now move vehicles up and down in the vehicle spreadsheet using arrow
buttons in the toolbar. All twenty vehicle settings (point symbol, color, etc.) will follow
the move. Also added Preference menu items to allow user to clear a specified row
or all rows where data age is greater than a specified number of seconds.
2) Added ASCII file import for CSV or SP1 files. A point layer is automatically
created and loaded into the map. A shape file with the same name is made
in the same folder as the ASCII file, however if a file of that name already exists,
the user is prompted for a filename. After import, user is prompted for whether
they want a label layer. Initially, every 25th point is labeled to avoid too many
labels. This can be changed in layer settings.
3) You can now request a log file from a vehicle for everything done on the current day.
4) Comm 1 or Comm 2 will now support a standard NMEA $GPGGA message. The ID
assigned is called 'ThisComputer'. You should use one port or the other
but not both since the vehicle ID is the same in either case.
5) Use of GSM file previously assumed all layers were in the folder of the GSM.
This is changed to honor full path in GSM file. Added a 'Open Map File Ignore Path'
File menu item which DOES assume all map layers are in the folder of the GSM.
6) To identify the vehicle from the name in the serial or UDP data, the case no
longer matters. For example 'MyVehicle' and MYVEHICLE' are considered equal.
7) User now specifies IP connection to TMR1 radio manually. Setting is persistent
from that point.
8) Speed and course now obtained from tracking message for SNS vehicles and
computed otherwise.
9) From the Layers menu, you can now add a point and label layer that consists
of the last type 9 point record for each vehicle recorded to the log database.
10) SNS will now automatically configure the Metal2 wifi device on startup. There is a
text box on IP ID tab page under the TMR1 interface address that shows metal status.
This status is retrieved once at startup and refreshed every 10 seconds. It can also
be refreshed using a button next to text box.
11) You can now specify an option which displays range and bearing from each vehicle
to the fixed vehicle (which is your last  vehicle in the spreadsheet).
12) You can now configure SNS Locator to display range and bearing between
pairs of vehicle (maximum 10 pairs).
13) SNS Locator now supports SourceNav F3 navigation messages.
14) You can now drag vehicles columns around in desired order. These are rembered
at startup. There is a column order reset item in the Preferences menu.
1) For Trimble DC files, there are now two settings in the Miscellaneous
Settings dialog of the DCO Editor. One allows the user to specify the code(s) to use
in order to identify back sights. The other allows the user to disregard any records
that have specific codes.
Requested by Jovany Meneses of Geokinetics.
2) QuikCon now prevents user information, surveyor name and descriptor from containing
extended characters when exporting to CVX file.
