Working Group Speleocartography
The Working Group Speleocartography formed in the last years from a user meeting of the
software CAD für Höhlen (CAD for Caves), developed by Tobias Bossert.
Still the main goal of the working group is the exchange of user experience.
The participants are software authors and cave surveyers.
But the original focus on CAD for Caves was extended and covers now all kind of computer aided cave surveying.
The actual sofware environment propagated by the working group is:
The authors of the mentioned software (despite AutoCAD) are members of the working group.
Authors of other software, especially German speaking, are invited to join the working group.
- input of survey data using the Mac software LimeLight.
- input of survey data using the Windows software CaveRender.
- converting of survey data for CAD für Höhlen and manual drawing of 2D cave maps
(vertical and horizontal projection) using AutoCAD®.
- generation of 3D maps with Toporobot.
The working group speleocartography meets once a year, normally in January.
The meetings take place in the frankian Jura, in the swabian Jura or next year for the first time
in Austria near Salzburg.
