"After emailing Carlson on how to change the state plane coordinates in there software, I was able to fix the shots. That seemed to be the method to fix my mistake. I appreciate all of your help and time with me on this matter. This…"

converting state plane west coordinates to central

Hi Guys,I am a new survey tech and I had a recent project that I shot in Missouri state plane west, but was in the central zone. My collector only allowed me to shoot in west as it was only setup to shoot in that zone. I now have it setup to shoot in central but I have taken over 4000 shots of this project in Missouri west zone. I am wondering if someone has a fix for me to use to correct the shots that I have taken in the west zone and convert them to central zone. I have tried to use corpscon…See More

"I have some time here in the office to see if I can change the zone in Carlson to central. I looked in the software before but was unable to figure out what I needed to do to change all of the shots. Thanks, Brent Richards"

"yeah, bringing it into Microstation will not prove helpful at thi stage in the game.  You will need to either change the zone in your collector or change the zone in your office software, i.e., Trimble Business Center or Magnet or Carlson…"

"I run Trimble and it as easy as changing the job properties. You should be able to do the same thing in Carlson. Lucky for you, Carlson is the “friendliest” software for a new guy to learn on. Great-Great software. I’m bummed it…"

"It seems that the biggest problem is that after I calculated a projection off the NGS benchmark, I converted all the shots but in MicroStation, the shots tend to rotate to the North. I have only used that NGS benchmark as my reference, but I have 5…"

"Thank you all for the input. I am overwhelmed at the responses in such a short period of time. To answer questions globally, the software that I am using is Carlson. As I knew already before I started the job, the state plane was in central, but…"

"I am using Carlson at the moment. Soon to switch to MAGNET. I have several control points and an NGS benchmark that I have shot over again in central and west. They are all spread out. I am supposing that I will need to find a mean average of…"

"The data is not deleted. From what I understand, the Carlson software that I use may not be able to do this. Thanks!"
