1.20.2017  -  ODOTcadd Standards Update for January, 2017
The January 2017 CADD standards update represents the latest release of the ODOTcadd Standards for MicroStation and GEOPAK V8i (SELECTseries 4). The standards are continuously improved and subject to change with future updates.

The ODOTcadd standards include many of ODOT’s previous V8istd CADD Standards for MicroStation and GEOPAK with additional newly developed standards for Bentley’s OpenRoads technology; however, there are some new changes that are not backwards compatible with previous releases of ODOT’s CADD Standards and existing projects. ODOT recommends completing existing projects using the previously published ODOTstd CADD Standards for (SELECTseries 2). New projects started with MicroStation and GEOPAK (SELECTseries 3) or higher should be started using the new ODOTcadd Standards.

For this update, the GEOPAK/PowerGEOPAK related standards for the OpenRoads technology have been updated using the SELECTseries 4 version of the software and are therefore incompatible with GEOPAK/PowerGEOPAK (SELECTseries 3). The following software version was used for these updates:
MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 3) Version
PowerGEOPAK V8i (SELECTseries 4) Version
CADD Services has established a patching system for the ODOTcadd Standards update and is now available for download.  The full set of standards are included in the FULL download.  The patched set of standards are included in the PATCH download.  In order to apply the PATCH you must have the previous July 2016 CADD standards installed.
