The new Layer Mapper in Sofoco Tools is modelled on AutoCAD's Layer Translator. Why would we use this? I'll give an example. Let's say we are a builder and we work with 7 different survey companies around the country. The different surveyors' drawings show roads and property boundaries, but on different layer names. One has layers called 'Edge of Pavement' and 'Lot Boundary'. Another has 'Road Edge' and 'Property'. Meanwhile our in-house standard layers are 'Roads' and 'Cadastre'. Layer Mapper can be used to define standard 'Layer Map' for each surveyor. It becomes quick and reliable to convert each new drawing to match our in-house layering standards.
