|Enhancement of the online map data import plug-in|
|UC-win/Road Ver.13.1 has a function to easily create buildings and forests
by importing map data available on the internet. The OpenStreetMap and
GIS (Geospatial Information Authority of Japan) map are planned to be supported.
The OpenStreetMap is a project that volunteers create a freely available map on the internet. The map created in this project is open on browsers and free to use on websites. The vector data can be used for the purpose of merchandise too.
The GIS map is provided by the Geospatial Information Authority of Japan (GIS). The users have to obey the terms of service defined by the GIS to use the high-precise map data.
To import online map data, first define a zone where you want to download a map. Click the import button in the zone edit screen. The data will be automatically downloaded, and buildings and forests are displayed.
If the height data is included in the map data, objects at that height are created. If not, the default height is used. The created buildings and forests can be edited.
|Parallel road generation process|
|Parallelizing the road generation process performed when completing the
road edit and terrain edit shortens the time of calculation in the multicore
Road shapes to be created according to terrains, road aligns, and road sections are calculated in the road generation process and recalculated when editing terrain and road. This process takes time when there are many roads and large terrain, and it was one of the reasons of less efficiency.
|Improvement of the point cloud modeling plug-in|
|Projects updated many times includes at least extra model data or section data. They consume lots of memory in the machine and do harm to the work performance. This function focuses on the similarity of imported data and detects deletable data. The detected similar data are considered as an alternative to each other and can be integrated if users want. This feature will save the memory during working, compact the project file volume, and improve the usability in the project operation.|
|Improvement of convert precision of latitude, longitude, and right angle coordinate|
|In UC-win/Road Ver.13.1, more precise data can be created by converting
the geographic coordinate system (latitude and longitude) and projected
coordinate system (plane right angle coordinate system and UTM coordinates)
held in project data.
When a new project is created in the UC-win/Road Ver.13.1, height data of latitude and longitude grid is not imported as it is. Latitude and longitude for grids in UC-win/Road are computed first, and more precise terrain data is created by complementing heights corresponding to those points from the original data. This is also supported for import of the GIS tiles and Geotiff. In addition, calculation of longitude and latitude by the new convert provides more precise values in the UC-win/Road Ver.13.1.
SDK developments also show promise of data utilization because of the precise coordinate convert by using the coordinate convert function.
Moreover, we are enhancing the UC-win/Road for the linkage with the developing CIM cloud solution service and next generation VR-Cloud® that is being reborn.
|Enhancement of multi user function|
|The multi user function has been enhanced in UC-win/Road Ver.13.1. Until now, the simulation calculation period on master side was determined in the composition of cluster master and cluster clients, and each client computed according to the master's time. In Ver.13.1, a timer (processing by time) can be set, and this function is important to link multiple HIL systems. Synchronization of HILS timers is difficult, and most HILS cooperated with clients do not work according to the master timer. To solve this issue, clients can now work in accordance with cooperating HILS timers.|
