I recently completed a task that took advantage of COGO points in Power InRoads Ss2. I have found a myriad of traditional and non-traditional uses for COGO Points over the years.
Over time, as I understand it, Open Roads will incorporate more and more of the native Civil/Site tools until at some point, there will only be Open Roads. Will Points in Open Roads have all of the capabilities of COGO Points in the native tools?
Believe it or not, we still find uses for ICS input files. And I recently needed to filter my points with an XML Report based upon a Fence. Will these continue to be available?
I guess, if there were no plans for this, I'd like to make a motion that the capabilities of traditional COGO and the native XML Reports are carried forward into Open Roads. Please feel free to second the motion if you agree.

In Power InRoads V8i we manage 100s of Boring location with COGO point for plan views. With these Borings setup as COGO points, we can manage different types of boring with different Style symbology existing, proposed, and other boring can have their own cell associated, level, color, and a description for the COGO point.
Then you can use Geometry>View Geometry>Horizontal Annotation to show in the dgn files with the different boring types all on their own levels symbology, cell symbols and their description label.
Also, you can pull elevation from the different tin files to verify Geotech boring against tins being used with reports. Plus, the engineer wants to see the Clearance Report showing:
- - - - - - Offset Point - - - - - -
And placed in an excel spreadsheet for their use in their reports to the clients.
Do you have another way to do this in OpenRoads Designer Connect Edition?
Please share with me on how we can continue to do this.
