LandXML is a common, open data format that describes
industry-specific data such as points, parcels, and
alignments. Land development professionals worldwide
use LandXML to make the data they create more accessible
to every project participant.
Data can go directly from Land Development Desktop,
CAiCE Visual PE, Bentley inRoads, Eagle Point 2002,
Trimble TerraModel, or any other software that supports
the LandXML schema, to FieldGenius without the need
for converting your data. As a result, data can be
efficiently transferred and accessible for your project.
By utilizing LandXML as our internal data format, FieldGenius
not only provides interoperability between different
application software, but also between varying versions
of that software.
Import and Stake Directly from a DXF File
Importing a drawing is a great way to prepare for a
trip to the field. With FieldGenius XG your drawing
will appear with more detail than other data collectors.
Our drawing import shows blocks, text, polylines, lines,
arcs, points, surfaces, and more! FieldGenius XG allows
you to turn on and off layers in the CAD drawing to
make it easier to see the information that is important
to you. Our latest feature with DXF import is
direct coordination and staking of DXF items.
When you select lines, arcs, points, polylines, blocks,
or text, points are added to the database, and linework
is converted automatically to figures. You can
setup, backsight, and stake directly from the DXF objects!
Import Control Points
Import a point control file from either an existing
ASCII point file or your LandXML data. If your current
design software supports LandXML and control points,
your control point data will automatically be available
in your FieldGenius project without the need for conversions
or separate control files.
Import ASCII Points
Import point data from an ASCII format file into your
FieldGenius project. This allows coordinate data to
be transferred from virtually any application into
a FieldGenius project.
