New, Improved LandXML-2.0 is Here
BERLIN, Germany, Oct. 6, 2014—A new and improved LandXML to transfer data to another drawing or to another application has been developed.
“LandXML was first introduced at the IHEEP 2000 conference, leading to widespread adoption among U.S. DOTs and around the world. Now, LandXML-2.0, from LandXML.org, is scheduled for release in December 2014 and will include key improvements for signing and sealing LandXML files in a ‘container file’ with defined versioning. In addition, LandXML-2.0 will include a new schema for road templates (in addition to cross sections, which currently exist) as well as for drainage elements such as pipe culverts with headwalls, open channels and catch basins with pipe structures.” – Bruce Carlson, President, Carlson Software
