The release of the LTS Server 2020 is almost here. We have been testing this new release and all of its new functionalities extensively on our Preview server and we are confident that this LTS Server is the new standard of our technology.
Release of the LTS Server
The new LTS server will be released on February 28 2020 at 12:00 hrs (noon). That means that the Tygron servers will be temporarily inaccessible, possibly throughout the weekend. From March 1 2020 the server will be back in service and all users now have access to the latest functionality of the LTS Server. From that moment the Preview Server will no longer be accessible.
From Preview Server to LTS Server: Please report your projects
Do you have a project on the Preview Server that needs migrating to the new LTS Server? Please let us know before February 18th by reporting the name of the project to email@example.com and we’ll make sure that it migrates to the LTS Server. Please note that it will count for the total amount of saved projects you are allowed under your licence.
A new functionality on the Tygron Platform is parametric design. It allows you to generate designs in the 3D world according to the parameters that you set. Check out the video for an example of this technique.
From now on the Tygron Platform uses heat stress calculations conform the new DRPA standard for stress tests. The new model allows you to make accurate calculations on heat stress based on the data provided by Dutch weather institute KNMI. It’s also possible to calculate the ‘sun angle’ based on time of day or as an average and have it shown in an overlay. For more detailed information about these features please check out the DPRA Module information on our Wiki page. The trusted UNESCO model for heat stress is also still available to use.
The new Geo Design Module allows you to show data from the Tygron Platform as GIS data through a WMS or a WFS. For example, show your own data in a mapviewer and use that data in other software like Arcgis for further analysis. Another highly requested feature is now available: you can upload your own 3D models in the existing 3D world. So you can import your own highly detailed 3D models, including textures in the Platform. A great feature to visualise the impact of new buildings in an area. Architects can use this as a way to introduce new designs. Please check out this short clip for more information and read all about this feature on our Support Wiki.
Improved Water Module
Several improvements have been made to the Water Module. Importing your own data on hydraulic structures is now simpler to do so less time is needed in GIS. This is mainly due to the rasterization of the area. Also expect more feedback on the water system through new overlays and more in depth error messages. The calculation of large areas has been improved. You can now run calculations on specific parts of the area instead of the complete map. That means greater speed if you make adjustments in just a small area of the map. Please check the Release Notes for more information about all improvements in the Water Module. You can check all the improvements made during the different updates.

We hope you will enjoy using the improved Tygron Platform!
