RGDS/CSD database for ClearRoute 2
A new version of the RGDS based on NGD235 is now available and can be downloaded from the Software-Downloads area under 'ClearRoute CSD' Please note that this is a conversion of the data only, and Omnicom Balfour Beatty do not hold responsibility for the validity of the data. Any issues with the NGD should be directed to the RGDS team: RGDS Help Centre (https://support.rgds.cordel.ai/) For users downloading the latest versions of the NGD 234 CSD and above please be advised that there are currently no structure types included in the data. Currently this information is not contained within the SC0s used to generate the CSD. This means that Structures will have an ‘Unknown’ type when viewed in ClearRoute2. Also, following he removal of the NGD downloads from the portal, Vehicle database (VCD) downloads have now moved. These can now be found under 'Software - Downloads' at the bottom of the page
