- Terrain analysis: slope, hillshade, viewshed, line of sight
- Numeric inputs for all drawing operations
- Integrated GPS geolocation support and GPX waypoint and route editor
- Multiple map views
- 3D globe view
- Advanced map grids, including UTM/MGRS and guide grids
- Tightly integrated search functionality
- Integrated geodata catalog

Quick start for Windows x64
- Download and extract the latest
kadas-portable-win64.zipportable build from the releases page.
- Read the technical manual to learn how to configure the application.
- Note: To be able to use the terrain analysis functions, a heightmap needs to be defined in the project. The portable build contains a sample project which references a 1km resolution SRTM model. You can use any other model by adding the corresponding layer to the project, and marking it as heightmap from its context menu in the layer tree.
