Land: Start and finish points easier to tell apart

Do you find it difficult to tell the start and finish points of your tracks apart? From now on, in Land 8.7, this will be more intuitive. Remember: the start point will always be green, and the finish point will be red. Try it for yourself!

 

Everyone who works with linear tracks (tracks not circular) has at some point had problems identifying the track’s start point. In Land, it’s easy to locate the points at both ends of the route, but at first glance it’s not that easy to identify which of the two points is the start and which is the finish.

Well, starting with Land 8.7, your itineraries will show up in the map window with two points at each end of the track:

Green point: Indicates the start of the track

Red point: Indicates the finish of the track

Now you will not only know where your itinerary starts, but you’ll be able to quickly identify the direction of the track. As you will see in Land 8.7, this small improvement has also been applied in the data tree.

Land: Improvements to the track editor

Land continues to evolve. Discover the improvements we’ve added to the track editor. Download Land 8.7 for free and try them for yourself!

 

Create track points on top of the track you are editing

In previous versions, Land’s track editor didn’t allow a track point on top of the track you were editing, even if your itinerary went through that point (for example: a route where at some point you go over the same path). In fact, if you did, the editing tool was automatically deselected.



This small bug made it difficult to draw paths that passed over the same road or intersected at some point.  Now, with Land 8.7 you can mark more track points atop the track you are editing.

 

Create intermediate track points by double clicking

Now, when editing your routes, keep in mind this new behaviour when pressing any track point:

Single press on track point: As before, the pressed point is selected.

Double press on track point: Land will now interpret you wish to add an intermediate point between the selected point and the one next to it.


Press track point and hold: As before, you can move the point to another location.

 

Create roadbook points more easily

Starting with Land 8.7, the way roadbook points are created changes slightly. These are the changes:

First: Assign a name and icon to the point you want to create.

Then: Move the pointer over the track until the roadbook point is over the desired location.

 

 

IMPORTANT: In addition, from now on you can also undo changes by pressing Control + Z (Windows) or Command + Z (Mac).

Land: Access editing and analysis tools from the route properties

In order to make Land more accessible to everyone, starting with Land 8.7, you will be able to access several frequently used tools directly from the properties of your tracks.

 

You just have to open the track’s properties by pressing ‘Properties’ in the button bar. This will open the properties window on one side of the interface.

 

 

Once opened, just below the track name, you will see 4 buttons. These are the tools you can use:

Open track editor: Edit the track, modify its path, add more points…

Open roadbook editor: Enhance your track by adding photos, comments…

See track graph: Analyse the track on a two-axis graph.

Send track: Transfer the track to your GPS, Dropbox, GO Cloud or via email.

 

A small change that will come in very handy when editing itineraries!
