Survey Point and Civil Coordinates

Matthew Lohden

I am trying to udse the Survey Point for civil coordinates in AC25. It does not seem to accept northings and eastings over 999m. What am I missing? Since civil coordinates are typically in the range of millions of feet or hundreds of thousands of meters this seems useless. What I am looking for is a way to set the civil coordinates at the internal origin point (or any known point). The instructions I've found so far are unhelpful.



go to options menu > project preference > location settings

Can you show a screenshot?

I tried it in the Location Settings Dialog and it lets me input very large numbers.

For me, the largest number it allows to input is 80,000,000 meters, which I guess should be fine as it is twice the length of the Equator.


By the way, are you that Matthew Lohden, the long-time Archicad user Matthew Lohden?

I suppose you did not claim your Archicad Talk account in that 3 month timeframe after the migration?
