Process raw file

Postby ergols1727 » Thu Nov 10, 2016 9:27 am

Right now I have these older file types;

cdx, dbf, fbk, ini, raw, cdx, dbf.

I would like to import the right file (out of this list of options) and process the raw data to coordinate a new traverse from this older ms survey information. How do I know which file to use and which import option in MS 2016 to use to do this? Is there a way to examine any of these files to determine which version of Fieldgenius may have been used to create them?

fbk or the raw file has been my preferred choices

In this case the .raw file contains all the information you need to process the traverse. There are a few articles on this format below:

All specifications: ... -rw5-specs

More information on GPS records: ... servations

A breakdown of a multiset record: ... s-raw-file
