Removing ALL coordinates from .rw5 files

Postby MMFilus » Thu Oct 30, 2008 8:20 pm

Is there an automated way to remove all coordinates from a Carlson SurvCE .RW5 file?

I am planning on a rather large network of GPS and convetional data that I will be adjusting in SURVNET and was wondering if I will have to manually modify the files or if there is a batch process way to do this?

Thanks in advance,

Coords in Raw File

Postby cujo » Fri Nov 28, 2008 9:22 pm

I am also very interested in this possability.

Newly starting to work with SurvNet I'm finding this a time-consuming task. In StarNet, any coordinate values in the .rw5 file are automatically set to "remark" and have no effect unless enabled.

I would think this would be a nice addition to the program. Today, practically all our work is eventually brought to grid, though our conventional work often starts based on local assumed coords.

Would a work-around be to set a CSE value of "float" at the beginning of the file? Will there still be a problem because "starting" values (Local) for the conventional work will be so vastly different than control values (Grid)?
Take care,

not sure if this helps

you can change all the store point records in the rw5 file
to note fields.

in Carlson, Survey, Edit-process raw file...
EDIT, Convert Points to Note Records.
