Veta 5.2.61 Released

Veta 5.2.61 adds support for Voegele thermal profiling files. Several bugs were also fixed and some calculations were changed.

Download Veta 5.2

Import

  • New: Added support for Voegele thermal profiling files.
  • New: If a file does not contain speed data, it will be calculated.
  • Fix: A fix in 5.2.47 caused a bug that could cause incorrect merging of Laser Test Roller and MOBA thermal files. Existing projects will be reprocessed.
  • Fix: The cold-edge filter did not work when multiple files were selected in the operation filter.
  • Fix: If a project contains files that not have a Data lot name and files that do not have a Data lot name, the latter might not show in the filtered results. The same problem also existed for the Machine name.
  • Change: Files that do not contain a Data lot name will be assigned a Data lot name of, “(None)”. The same also applies to the Machine name.
  • Change: Existing MOBA thermal profile projects will be reprocessed to read the data lot name.
  • Change: Revised calculations for heading and speed for non-gridded data.

Misc

  • Fix: Projects with a very large number of imported files could not be opened.

 

 

Veta 5.2.57 Released

Compilation of miscellaneous fixes and some changes.

Download Veta 5.2

Import

  • New: Veta-recognized coordinate systems are now read from Leica files.
  • Change: The Roadway ID in MOBA thermal profiles will be used as the data lot name. Existing projects will not be changed.

Filters

  • Change: Exclusions have been moved to a subfolder. The text, “Exclusions – “, is no longer added to new Exclusion filters.
  • Fixed: Sometimes a generated operation filter is not automatically removed when it should be. It is not known what causes this, but these groups will be removed when the project is reopened.
  • Fixed: More accurate creation of station-based location filters. Existing filters will be updated when a project is opened.
  • Fixed: Detection of some instances of using incorrect stations for a location filter. These instances will now correctly not create the filter instead of creating one with incorrect locations.
  • Fixed: Sometimes filter creation options were missing from the toolbar.

Analysis

  • Fixed: Changing the sorting for the differential table caused the map to highlight the wrong sublot.

Misc

  • Fixed: Some Windows Regional Settings would cause a crash at startup.

 

Veta 5.2.47 Released

The highlights from this update are some fixes related to stationing, MOBA thermal profiling files, and TDS (standard file format) files. Existing MOBA thermal profiling and TDS projects will be reprocessed.

Download Veta 5.2

Import

  • Fixed: TDS files were not imported correctly.
  • Fixed: MOBA thermal profiling files that were continued on a later date did not have the correct times.
  • Change: Account for new paveproj files saved by MOBA’s PPM software.

Alignments

  • Fixed: LandXML files with multiple alignments only used the stations from the first alignment. Existing alignments will be reprocessed. Filters using these alignments will need their selections checked.
  • Change: Initial alignment names now include the file extension (kml, kmz, or xml) to differentiate between multiple alignments with the same name.

Filters

  • Fixed: A copy of a generated filter could not be deleted or renamed.
  • Fixed: Changing the selected filter group back and forth could cause the “Apply filter group” button to be incorrectly hidden. Because it is not possible to determine the correct state in previous projects, existing projects will always show the button until the filter group is applied.
  • Fixed: Making a copy of a data filter would list it twice.
  • Fixed: Station offsets for new exclusion filters were always in meters.
  • Change: New exclusion filters include the default text, “Exclusion – “.

Analysis

  • Fixed: Analysis might fail if Speed or Temperature were not selected.

Veta 5.2 Released

We are pleased to announce the release of Veta 5.2. This version focuses on alignments and additional file support. We added limited support for LandXML files, including the ability to read station information. Support was also added for Leica compaction files and MOBA EVIB compaction files. Zip and Gzip files can also be imported, eliminating the need to extract the data first. Finally, we added support for the AASHTO draft specification for intelligent construction data files. We currently support compaction, thermal profiling, and laser test roller files. Additional information can be found on the new Developers page. All changes are listed below.

Download Veta 5.2

Installation

  • Microsoft .NET 4.6.2 is required.
  • Windows 7 SP 1 is the minimum supported operating system.
  • Veta 5.2 can be installed on the same machine as previous versions.
  • Veta 5.2 can open projects created in previous versions, but not vice-versa.

Import

  • New: Added support for TDS files (standard file format) for compaction, thermal profiling, and laser test roller.
  • New: Added support for Leica compaction files.
  • New: Included support for EVIB when using MOBA compactors.
  • New: Zip and Gzip data files that contain only one file are now supported.
  • Change: Specifying the machine vendor is no longer necessary, so the dropdown was removed from the import wizard.

Data Files

  • Fixed: Viewing files could cause data to be incorrect or missing.

Alignments

  • New: Added support for KML.
  • New: Added limited support for LandXML alignments and stations.
  • Change: Alignments were originally used only for drawing on the map but have now become an integral part of the software. To account for this, the nomenclature has changed:
    • Alignment is now Alignment File (each file can contain multiple alignments)
    • Drawing is now Alignment (stations and station equations/regions are defined here)
    • Object is now Line

Filters

  • New: The offset location filter can now use stations.
  • Change: The Position input for offset location filters has been removed. Positive numbers are the right of the reference line, negative to the left.

Analysis

  • Fixed: Thermal profile did not always redraw.

Misc

  • New: Added a Zoom to Station option.
  • Change: The options “Use SI units” and “Location unit” have been moved to the Project Properties. New projects will use the most recently used values for these items as default.
  • Change: Generated final coverage for all passes that only contain static data will no longer show ICMV.
  • Change: Improved map performance.
  • Fixed: Some previous projects (3+ years ago) could not be opened successfully.

Veta 5.1.21 Released

This important update fixes several issues.

Download Veta 5.1

Import

  • Fixed: Corrected checking for invalid coordintes for MOBA IC data. Existing projects will be automatically reprocessed.

Data Files

  • Fixed: Viewing compaction files can cause data to be incorrect or missing.
  • Change: The search tool and viewing of pass counts have been removed from this screen. Search tool may return but it is currently not possible to reliably show the pass counts on a per-file basis in this screen. If you need to see this data, use the Filters.

Sublots

  • Fixed: If the coordinate system was UTM but the Location unit in Options was not meters, the sublots length description was labeled as meters, but the sublots were actually defined using the Location unit (feet or survey feet). The actual distance and unit used by Veta were correctly displayed in the Analysis. UTM is by definition, meters.

Misc

  • Fixed: Filter groups could sometimes link to filters that no longer exist, causing a crash when applying the filter group. While this does not fix the cause, it will clean groups of bad links.

 

Veta 5.1.16 Released

This update addresses problems that will prevent downloading data directly from MOBA.

Download Veta 5.1

Import

  • Fixed: Downloading MOBA data could fail if a file had no data.
  • Change: Server addresses for downloading MOBA have been updated. It is not known how long previous 5.x versions will be able to download MOBA data.

Veta 5.1 Released

We are pleased to release Veta 5.1. We have included support for MOBA intelligent compaction files, added a new type of location filter, added charts that can be used for quality control, and created a report to list all filter settings.

Because this version only contains new features and fixes, it should be used to replace 5.0. Due to limited resources, we are currently planning to support only 5.1+, not 5.0.

Installation Notes

  • Microsoft .NET 4.6.2 is required.
  • Windows 7 SP 1 is the minimum supported operating system.
  • Veta 5.1 can be installed on the same machine as previous versions.
  • Veta 5.1 can open projects created in previous versions, but not vice-versa.

Import

  • New: Added support for MOBA intelligent compaction files.
  • Fixed: Adding a data file that did not contain any new data could cause a crash when viewing “Imported file name” for an operation filter.

Filters

  • New: Added a new location filter that be created using only one line from an alignment and offsets. For example, 12 to 24 feet from the centerline. This allows the use of alignments that do not have all lanes defined.

Sublots

  • Fixed: Changing most of the values did not clear the sublots.

Analysis

  • New: Added quality control charts using data from sublots. This is the first pass at creating reports that can help for quality control.

Reports

  • New: Created a new report that lists all filter settings for data lot filter groups. This provides an easier way to check for filter groups that may not have the correct settings.
  • Change: The screen now attempts to only show the options that are applicable and will disable the “Create” button if the selected options will not produce a report. Note there are still some rare scenarios that will not create a report, but these should only be scenarios that are not practical.
