"I realize that. Hats off to you Sir. I'm sure there is someone else though you can pass your invaluable knowledge and experience too. I wish I met you, or someone like you, at the very beggining of my surveying adventure for a mentor.
And yes -…"
"Very interesting and colorful life indeed. I love nature myself but where I live right now there is not much of it. I like Trump too and I am one of very few here who likes him. In fact I don't know anyone else...
Trying to downsize... this is…"
"Actually, I don't do much of any kind of surveying in Walterboro. Lately, I've been trying to downsize & am trying to target rural boundaries. If it is surveying, I've done it. Everything from large corporations like Robert Bosch…"
"Maybe I misinterpreted the question. I thought he said topo data? Topo data is 3 dimensional. Geodetic measurements are curved, rectilinear measurements are in a straight line. Yes you can rotate objects & lines in CAD but the coordinate values…"
"Man try UCS command in Autocad and UCSMAN is another. THere is no need for rotating anything. Rotating has a downside in CAD as the accuracy is lost very often especially when there is lots of points. You see CAD has its downsides and this is one of…"
"What Mr. Sattar said is true but I am not sure what you mean by "Real coordinates". That would depend on the reference frame you are converting from & the reference frame you are converting to. Geodetic elevations are usually…"
"I agree with Sattar
Points can be rotated in autocad by just selecting them and using the rotate command and a base point. Reference points between the 2 coordinate systems are important to get them lined up correctly."
Land Surveyors United is the world's FIRST Global Social Network for geospatial professionals. We have dedicated, geolocated support groups for practically every country, continent and state on earth, for you to utilize for building your personal network. We are all essentially concerned with the same issues, no matter where we are located on earth. However, surveying practices and methods vary depending on the geographic location where we work. If you have noticed similarities and differences between the conditions, laws and practices between two or more areas of the world,discuss it in this forum.
