A couple of weeks ago I was fishing around for any interest in AutoLISP,
a LISP based programming language used to customize Autodesk and
IntelliCAD CAD programs. I didn't find enough interest to release the
code as an OSGeo labs project, but I did promise to let the list know
when I released the code.


You can now download an alpha/unstable version of my first release of
SurveyLISP here:




You are looking for the "surveyos_00.10.00.zip" file.


All of the code is being released under the GPL.


This first release includes the following:

- A set of AutoLISP library source code files.

- A set of AutoLISP user command source code files.

- Simple programmer documentation in HTML format.

- Menu files needed for the user interface.


This initial release allows the user to export certain drawing entities
into OGC WKT format for import into a program like OpenJUMP, among other
things. (Import of OGC WKT is not yet supported. It may be in the next


To install SurveyLISP, you will need to complete the following steps:


- Place the "SurveyLISP" folder in the C:/Program Files path of your
Microsoft Windows Operating System.

- Add the C:/Program Files/SurveyLISP/bin and C:/Program
Files/SurveyLISP/lib folders to your AutoCAD/IntelliCAD support paths.

- Add the following statements to the appropriate standard LISP file
that loads library files on your CAD program's start-up (This file is
named acad2008doc.lsp for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008):


(load "C:/Program Files/SurveyLISP/bin/load_surveylisp.lsp")

(princ "\n")

(princ "SurveyLISP Loaded")


This really is an unstable release. Please don't attempt to install or
use it unless you've got some experience working with AutoLISP already.
I don't want to cause a melt down at your office. I'll be working on
some short videos to make the installation bearable for non-programmers.


I hope to have an updated release out soon.


I'd really appreciate feedback and comments from other CAD users.
