Anonymous
Not applicable
using a Transit today, located 21 trees, and now want to use the surveyor data importe feature, but need to understand how to create the data in the proper form to import it. How do I build the information file in excel...xyz, comma dilenated...what comes first? \

Tried to use the reference book but don't know how to ask it to get to the proper place...what is it that I am asking...

Below/attached is jpg of progress so far. The red cone represents the Transit. The posts represent trees, but we realized that we located the trees from the Transit to the face closest to it, therefore the file is off by the radius of every tree, so this was class to see if it worked; now will repeat this and add some limitations/specifications to cover this...also plan to shoot a point to the corner of the house for referencce.

This property is located at 1,449 ' elevation, in Santa Cruz, Ca and no redwoods will be cut, but ther sycamore saplings, pines and madrones in the area will have to go as the Barn's size/position will be dictated by the redwood trees.

This took a bit of time, we should have numbered the trees and located the 0,0,0 spot of the transit; learning curve here....

My brother and I used a transit to locate trees on his property, but took our readings from the "face" of the tree and forgot to offset by the radius, so when our site "popped" up, it was a bit off. We were using the "Place Mesh from Surveyor's Data" portion of ArchiCAD 16. My question to Graphisoft is that when we "clicked" the "place mesh..." button, first got an Archicad/Graphisoft "can't get there from here" error message, immediately afterwhich the site in 3d showed up... Think this is a bug in 16. I was able to reproduce this error/bug over and over...
