GeoCue 2020 Release – Service Pack 3


GeoCue 2020 Service Pack (SP3) fixes several issues found with the GeoCue 2020 release covering a wide variety of issues. It is recommended that all users apply this service pack at the earliest convenience if already running GeoCue 2020, or immediately upon upgrading to GeoCue 2020. Users still working on previous versions of GeoCue are encouraged to upgrade to GeoCue 2020 SP3 at this time. Service packs are cumulative so they include the new features, modifications and fixes from all previous service packs. As always, ensure that your GeoCue database is backed up before beginning the process of applying a service pack, or upgrading versions. Regular backups of the GeoCue database should be a standard part of your company backup procedures and help protect against the loss of valuable information. 

If you are working on LAS files for ultimate delivery to the USGS be aware of the need to make a manual modification following the initial installation of GeoCue 2020, however, applying just this service pack should not require making these modifications again.


  1. Exit all GeoCue Clients and ensure that no background processing is being done on any GeoCue nodes.
  2. Download the service pack ZIP file from the following link and extract its contents to the GeoCue Common Folder as defined in Database Manager. Be sure to retain the folder names when extracting so that a “Service Packs” folder and other subfolders under it are created in the GeoCue Common Folder location.
