Topography Tools

Postby JaiCheswick » Mon Feb 17, 2014 1:46 am

Hi
I am assuming that Topography tools is still operational software on mavericks.

What equipment can the information be imported into topography tools from and/or what format does it need to be for import ?

Scenario : I ask my local land surveyor in Melbourne to survey a garden for me and provide distances between objects/trees, sheds watercourses etc and heights from 0.

He sends me a file, I import and voila...all information is in PowerCadd ????


Thanks Jai

Jai,

Yes, it still runs with Mavericks.

You ask the surveyor for topo survey data, and it's a standard format that everyone uses. You get a text file which you import into PowerCADD.

And there are two ways to import as we now have an import topo survey data in TopoTools in the latest upgrade of WildTools. Read the documentation for this in the release notes, and I think I have it on the WildTools web page as well.
