This function is only available in the OCAD 11 Enterprise Edition.

The Client Server function is part of the OCAD Enterprise Edition.


With the Client Server Architecture (CSA) different user can work simultaneously at the same project. The collaboration can be achieved either internally (within a company) or distributed over the internet. A VPN connection is recommended. For fieldwork it is also possible to take a part of the map offline and resync the changes with the CSA project after finishing the fieldwork. Furthermore it is possible to create base projects and inherit them as basis for other projects. Changes on the base projects affects the inherited projects geometry but not the styling.
