  • New Traverse Editor provides traverse creation and editing environment that combines numeric and graphical interaction to help users create points and linear features in your drawing.
    The included help file details the many input methodologies supported.
    A surveyor can efficiently input a deed using 10-key numeric input.
    A designer can create design or existing conditions geometry using a broad array of input options.
    The drawing canvas provides real-time feedback so that you can QA your work as you go.
    Note that this replaces previous tools including the COGO Editor in Productivity Pack 1.
  • New Traverse Adjustment utility that can read geometry created in the new Traverse Editor in order to analyze, balance and generate reports.
  • New Subassemblies - A set of new subassemblies is included in this release, including subassemblies for benches, curbs, ditches, shoulders, tunnels, single-track and double-track railways, and a railway platform.
    Included are typical subassembly help pages for each subassembly.
    Note: After installing Productivity Pack 3, you will need to import the PKT files into a Tool Palette to access them.

If you are an IDS (suite) customer you will find PP3 in the download section of Entitlements for the Suite product itself.
