Geographic Keyins

Published on July 8, 2010

In MicroStation V8i and later releases that support geographic coordinate systems there are key-in commands available to manage coordinate system definitions.

geocoordinate assign <gcsname>
Assigns a geographic coordinate system to the active model.

geocoordinate assign reproject <gcsname>
Reprojects design file graphics in the active model from the current geographic coordinate system to a new geographic coordinate system.

geocoordinate delete
Deletes the current geographic coordinate system assignment

Where <gcsname> is the coordinate system name displayed in the Geographic Coordinate System dialog.

Example: geocoordinate assign wi-s

These key-in commands can be used with the MicroStation Batch Process utility to assign, reproject, or delete geographic coordinate systems on a group of files in batch mode.
