Survey Office Data Management goes to Testing

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

We have released our Survey Office data management software to beta testing with existing clients. We expect to continue to add features and optimize the software for several months, after which the software will be released to Microsoft Codeplex as open source. Licensing information will be available at that time. The software currently uses a [...]

Civil/Survey High Precision Mathematics Library

Friday, February 18th, 2011

Our high precision mathematics library has been released to existing clients who which to Beta test the new software. Not all optimizations are yet in place, especially regarding trigonometric iterations but these will be completed within the next few months. This library will be released to Microsoft’s Codeplex as open source once Beta testing has [...]

This is an open source project of substantial size, written entirely in C#. It builds on our enhanced civil/survey mathematics project to provide common computations. The database is entirely in XML, and conforms to the data specifications. Unlike many projects which simply provide an import/export mechanism, openKogo is based entirely on the LandXML specifications. [...]

Survey Office Data Management

Sunday, April 4th, 2010

This project is another of our open source projects, based on a previously released application. That applications used a proprietary data format, and was written in Pascal and C. It is being completely rewritten in Microsoft’s C# language using Visual Studio 2010, and will be released on Microsoft’s Codeplex website. The project provides extensive land [...]

Resolving Duplicate Icons

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

This open source project provides software for clearing duplicated icons from the Windows 7 or Vista program menu’s, sometimes left behind by applications that are not quite Windows 7 or Vista compliant. The code will be available from Microsoft’s Codeplex in early summer of 2010.

Windows 7 File Library Software

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

This project contains classes to add, edit, and delete files from Microsoft’s new file Library system. The code will be released as open source software at Microsoft’s Codeplex in late summer of 2010.

Railway Turnover System

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

The Railway Turnover System is designed to permit many people to share a single document, with every person updating at random intervals and all edits showing up on everyone else’s document immediately. The software emulates the paper charts used in the offices, and displays one or more grids simultaneously. The software is designed to be [...]

Civil/Survey High Precision Mathematics Library

Friday, November 27th, 2009

This project contains core mathematics used in civil engineering and survey software. The classes permit computation using high precision algorithms in decimal format (28 decimal place accuracy). This project is a base class library for most other civil engineering and survey projects. The project will be released in early 2011 as one of our open [...]

Reception Assistance

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

This is an open source project used to track employee status, such as if they are in or out of the office, if they are available for calls, or who to transfer calls to. Each employee has a small application added to their desktop, permitting them to set their status (in, out, not available etc), [...]
