Try Survex. You can use it to generate the coordinates, then view them with
Caverot which is a 3d viewer. It takes a bit to get used to the programmes
(and particularly messing around in DOS or setting up file associations to
get it going), but is essentially very simple. You can also add on some pipe
generator type thing which can be used to view 3d passages with passage
shapes, but I haven't ried it.

Can it really cope with maps over 30 miles in length?
All the same, the image of a super hardcore caver asking his caving
companion, on being shown a 3D map of their 10 mile caving expedion, "So,
are these multi dimensional beasts of hell things in the real cave as well?
And if so, where do we get all these cool space age guns from?" amuses me.

There's nothing better than being able to take the lift out of a 150ft
pothole ;o) or having to blast your way past a few mercenary Nali WarCows to
enter the master cave, lol
The guns are (obviously) found on the ledge above the Snapper Fish infested
water filled sink-hole ;o)

Look at his website on www.ex.ac.uk/~kdruss for details.
You can even see a beam engine working in his model . . . .
Also the BCRA Surveying Group has very good page on surveying software on
This has gives the details of much of the software available plus links to

The data for the surveys was calculated using Walls, which actually outputs
VRML (albeit VRML1 with non-standard axes) and has a built in 3d viewer..

In fact, if you look at the latest version of Survex, you'll see that it
is significantly more user-friendly than previous versions. It now has a
Windows-based installer and a survey viewer (Aven) which works natively
under both Windows and Unix environments. File associations are
automatically set up and there is no need to resort to the DOS prompt
WALLS has an editor that is a joy to use for survey input; magnetic
declination corrections can be made automatically; blunder detection is
there and works; surveys can have sections defined for display independently
of the input data organisation; annotation and a limited range of symbols
can be applied to printed surveys ... and more.
Try it, or just see the examples at http://davidmck.home.texas.net/walls
unless you're a Windows refusenik of course when Survex's multi-platform
capabilities may come into their own..

Goodness no. It uses wxWindows (http://wxwindows.org/).
