Copan Lite version 11.11, release 2011.12.15, was released at 2pm on 22-Dec-2011, Vancouver, BC.

Note: It has no functional improvements over version 11.05 – only a name change and some updated links to our new web site. You do not need to update your software.

Name change and new editions

For a long time, we provided three Copan packages and they were named for the different platforms that they ran on: Copan for Windows, Copan for Pocket PC and Copan for Palm OS. There were also two editions of Windows Copan: a free one for the public and a more advanced one for our internal (UGL) use.

Now, more advanced editions of Copan are available for the public, see below, and as we now have multiple editions, a naming change is order:

Copan for Windows (free edition) is now officially called Copan Lite. It still costs nothing and has no usage restrictions!

Copan Pro now available

A new, advanced edition of Copan—called Copan Pro— is now available for the public. It has all of the functionality of Copan Lite (formerly Copan for Windows) plus numerous drawing tools, and it processes Leica digital level data.

It costs only $650 Canadian, but is available for a free trial. See www.underhill.ca/software/copan-pro for more information.

Copan Pro+DWG also available

An even more advanced edition of Copan—called Copan Pro+DWG— is also available for the public. It has all of the functionality of Copan Pro (ie, COGO, drafting, etc) plus it exports Copan coordfile points directly to AutoCAD DWG files and it exports Copan drawings to AutoCAD DWG files.

It costs only $800 Canadian, but is available for a free trial. See www.underhill.ca/software/copan-pro-dwg for more information.

New web site

If you've not been to our company web site since June 2011, you might like to visit. It has an enhanced design, more surveying services described, many more survey projects shown, a much-expanded history section, many more photos, and of course, a newer and expanded surveyor/engineer software section. Got to www.underhill.ca and explore.
