Sydney, Australia – 28 February 2023 – Open Spatial, a leading provider of spatial data management solutions, is pleased to announce the release of enlighten 4.2.1, the latest version of its popular software for database-driven spatial analysis through a web browser.

Enlighten 4.2.1 features significant improvements in the way georeferenced plans from Munsys (Geoscans) are displayed and organized in enlighten. This minor release also includes a range of enhancements, such as improved querying and display, as well as improvements in network trace and shut-off blocks, to provide even more value and increased productivity to enlighten users.

The Geoscan display has been improved in enlighten to effectively and efficiently complete the workflow and make it available to end users. This includes plans that are geo-referenced (locate, scale, and rotate) in Munsys using AutoCAD and then used for heads-up digitizing (refer to Figure 1). With enlighten, these plans can be displayed in a browser map and toggled on or off as an underlay image. Additionally, they can be opened as a linked document (refer to Figure 2).
