Importing Survey Data

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to bring in field survey data into WMS, but am having trouble getting it to appear correctly. The *.csv has northings, eastings, z's and I can group them generally in the section groups. Do I need to determine "D" outside of WMS?

You should be able to get survey data into WMS.  Here's what I do to get it into WMS:

1. Select FIle | Open and select the .csv file.  Here's my sample .csv file:

1, 1, 2
2, 2, 3
1, 2, 4
2, 3, 5

2. In the dialog that pops up, use the defaults and select "Next"

3. Under "WMS Data Type", select "Survey Data", then Finish.

4. This brings your data into WMS as TIN vertices.  If you have vertices turned off, you won't see anything.  To triangulate your vertices and show contours, select TIN | Triangles | Triangulate from the Terrain Data Module menus.  You will see the triangles and contours.

Let me know if you need anything else,
