Geometry Extended Descriptions

Published on June 3, 2010

In the InRoads V8i (SELECTseries 1) release there is additional information that can be pushed from the Survey Fieldbook to the Geometry Project. When Saving Survey Data to Geometry there is a new section in the dialog for building descriptions based on Codes, Attributes, Values, and Notes.

Create Extended Descriptions

1. From the InRoads pull down menu select Survey > Survey Data to Geometry. The Survey Data to Geometry dialog will appear.

2. In the Build Extended Description section of the dialog double click the Insert section names to add them to the description below. Additional buttons for undo, adding spaces and returns are located in the dialog.

3. Select the Apply and Close buttons. The Survey Data will be saved to a Geometry Project with the points having attributes being saved as extended descriptions.

View Extended Descriptions

4. From the InRoads pull down menu select
Geometry > Cogo Points > Edit / Review Extended Descriptions.
The Edit / Review Extended Descriptions dialog will appear.

5. The Extended Descriptions from the Survey Control Point will be shown in the dialog.

6. In addition to Attributes and Values, file links can be attached to the cogo points. In the example above a photo of the monument was linked to the cogo point shot in the field.
