gINT ProjectWise Spatial

  • Automatically internally stamps borehole WGS84 coordinates (latitude and longitude) onto PDF exports of log reports. These native gINT fields and are shown and automatically calculated by gINT from North and East when the Coordinate Fields support is turned on.
  • Requires gINT Professional Plus licensing.

Surface to LandXML DTM

  • Capability of the Input | Surfaces application.
  • Allows export of the current surface (grid or TIN) to a LandXML digital terrain model file.
  • LandXML surfaces can be imported into many modeling products including Bentley Civil design programs.


  • PLAXIS is a 3D finite element analysis program that is popular in the geotechnical field worldwide.
  • Can now export gINT data related to the layering geometry to create a PLAXIS subsurface model.

Silent Install

  • Used by system administrators to deliver gINT to multiple users via Group Policy or Microsoft SMS.

Export DGN with Raster Image Support

  • Export to DGN files now support raster images. That is bitmap symbol and in place bitmap symbol entities in reports and drawings are now properly transferred.

Repeating log pages horizontally & vertically

  • Supported in DGN, GDW, and DXF export.
  • Can limit the number of rows and therefore generate more than one sheet or unlimited number of rows for export to just one sheet.
  • If this option is selected, preview shows the exported view.

gINT Rules Procedure Before Required Fields Check

  • Allows executing code before gINT checks for data in required fields.
  • Useful when storing data in multiple units, e.g., Depth in Meters and Feet and procedure running before the required field check converting from one to another.

Display Axes for Length and Height in Fence Drapes

  • Draws a rectangle on the drawing area giving the horizontal extent of the drape alignment and the vertical extent of the top and bottom of all boreholes in the project.

Do not maintain aspect ratio

  • Allows setting of both height and width of raster images.
  • Applies to Bitmap Symbol and In Place Bitmap Symbol entities.

Grids and Ticks

  • Allows the superimposition of solid ticks over grid lines on reports that have grids: Fences, Graphs, Histograms, and Site Maps.
  • Only useful when the grid lines are not solid.

New Script Operations

  • Script Log File Operation - At the end of a script a script log is shown. Using this new operation, the log can be suppressed and the log sent to any file name and folder.
  • Copy File Script Operation - Allows copying from one file name/folder to another file name/folder.

Raster Image Import

In all gIDraw applications that support the Draw > Graphics > In Place Bitmap command, the command is replicated under the File > Import/Export menu.
