• Work with multiple alignments and surfaces – Multiple alignment capabilities have been expanded further, allowing users to create individual surfaces from multiple alignments, or multiple layers within those corridors.

• Hydrology & watershed tools – Users can now automatically define watershed boundaries, streams and ponds; and calculation of a drainage area feeding a specific point.

• Auto-Balance Grading – Users can access a grading option that automatically balances cut-fill for the graded object.
