We hope you all had a good start to the new year and wish you all the best for 2024.
In this blog post, we take a look at what has been added to OCAD over the last year in terms of functionality and learning aids.
OCAD Route Analyzer 2.0
The Route Analyzer 2.0 now also takes into account the relief and the runnability. With it, the fastest routes can be calculated in urban as well as in classic forest terrain.
Optimized DEM for Course Setting Available
To ensures that the climbing and slope gradient are included in the route calculation of Route Analyzer 2.0, an optimized elevation model can be embedded directly into the map or course setting file. This significantly reduces the file size of the DEM and makes it easier to exchange.
