New tools, user interface updates, and more

New features

For the past few months we’ve been silently hard at work on performance improvements, new features, and documentation updates. We can now start sharing some of these capabilities with you!

New Tools

We are pleased to announced three new tools for Podaris:Plan, aimed at reducing the burden of repetitive actions for users working on large networks.

Copy and Paste

As the networks you start planning become larger, being able to produce consistent geometry such as station layouts is important. The new copy tool allows you to do just that:

Copying

After selecting a set of control points and lines, change to the Copy Tool to easily duplicate the selection by clicking on the map. You can also use standard copy & paste keyboard shortcuts.

Rotate

Zoom

Navigation has been made easier than ever with a powerful new Zoom Tool, helping to get the pixel-perfect framing for your views.

Zoom

With the zoom tool you can:

  • Zoom to extent of any visible geometry
  • Draw a bounding box on the map to Zoom to
  • Set the latitude, longitude, or zoom level of the map
