Google Earth Linear and Graphic Functions in SURPAC Software

Google Earth allows for the viewing of 2D or 3D colour satellite imagery for any point on earth, as well as being able to view galaxies and the ocean floors. The surface terrain imagery can usually be viewed at a scale in the region of 1:2500 without any loss of detail quality.

Download and Install The Lastest SURPAC Software

This download facility is designed for both existing and prospective users who would like to download and install SURPAC. Prospective users who would like to evaluate SURPAC Software for a period of up to 30 days may use this facility to do so.

Existing SURPAC users may make use of this facility to reinstall SURPAC Software in cases where their original SURPAC installation CDs are lost, damaged or out of date for the current Windows operating system. Existing registered SURPAC users wishing to make use of this download and installation facility must have a valid SURPAC Software Maintenance Contract (SMC), failing which a Security Access Code will not be issued.

SURPAC is normally installed into a Folder called “C:\Surpac Software” (although this may be user set). Apart from the SURPAC application and its required ancillary files, this download installation will add a Sub-Folder called “C:\Surpac Software\Samples” in which a variety of sample data will be installed.

If you already have SURPAC Software (e.g. Windows 98/NT/2000/XP version) installed on your PC, then use the Windows Start –> Settings –> Control Panel –>Add/Remove Programs function to Remove (Uninstall) the existing installation, before installing this new version. Failure to do this may cause the new installation to become corrupt, or fail.
