Data Convert A software that simplifies the process of converting from source to destination files. Data Convert makes it possible to transform the Project axes to make them compatible with other layout software and with Trimble equipment.

Š SETTOP, Bofarull 14, 08027 Barcelona


5

Installation To install the DataConvert software, it is necessary to execute the “setup.exe” file. Once it is installed and upon the first time of entering the program, a screen will appear requesting a code that will be provided once the form has been filled in and the email sent to soporte@al-top

Point Conversion This action makes it possible to convert a point file in ASCII format with the N,X,Y,Z,C or N,Y,X,Z,C structure (whether separated by commas, spaces or tabulators) to another one with a picture interchange format (DXF), to a Trimble Data Collector file (DC) or to a Digital Level (DiNi) file

Š SETTOP, Bofarull 14, 08027 Barcelona


7

DXF Outlet If there are duplicate points (with the same name) in the source file (ASCII), it will display a warning screen that will allow us to continue or cancel the operation. If, on the other hand, we activate the “Convert duplicate points” box, the conversion will take place automatically, with no interruptions due to point duplicity. Once the source file has been chosen, a file will be generated with the outlet format with the same name and in the same folder, which can be modified in both name and location. The generation parameters of the DXF are 1:1 and the choice of the scale only entails the size of the text with which the point shall be named. It is necessary to also choose the number of decimals and whether one wants to represent the points in 2 or 3 dimensions.

Processsing a tacheometric survey with a codification library In order to codify a tachometric survey on the basis of a codification library, first of all, we must go to the main screen of the “Point Converter” Data Convert and select the file type to be entered under "Source ASCII Format". We have "N,X,Y,Z,C", "N,Y,X,Z,C" and "Multiple Format", in which: • • • • • •

N: Point number X: X coordinate Y: Y coordinate Z: Z coordinate C: Code of point taken

Afterwards, under “Generated Format”, we must select "DXF". Likewise, under “Source File”, we must select the tachometric survey taken on field. The assignation of the name of the *.dxf file will be done automatically on the basis of the name of tachometric survey. If we want to apply the code library, we must activate the “Apply code table” option and, under the section “Code Table”, select the *.cod file. Likewise, if we have blocks that we want to insert into each one of the points taken, such as, for instance, the drawing of a tree, we will have to assign the location of the folder where the blocks are located in the section “Block Folder”. Such blocks, it must be pointed out, must be generated in *.dxf format, created in versions not inferior to Autocad 2007 and with the name of the file identical to that assigned in the “Block” column of the *.cod file. It is essential to note that, in this tachometric survey, in the code section, we must have the same codes assigned as in the library. If, during the taking of a set of points, defined by the same code, we want an automatic union line to be created, we will have to add the "-I" suffix to the code name in order to start the line and “F” to end it. What follows is an example: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15

99.762 117.668 138.259 150.793 174.966 191.977 214.359 220.626 263.600 278.802 111.401 123.039 151.689 162.432 191.081

In this example, one can observe that the program, as long as the definition of code “101” and “102” is available in the code library, will create two 2D polylines defined between the points 1-10 and 11 -20. Likewise, we can create these lines if the taking of points has been carried out in staggered formation, that is, if the two lines have been taken simultaneously on field, as long as we appropriately indicate the start and end of each line. What follows is the same example with the simultaneous taking of lines: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20

Assignation of Sections: Part assignation

This makes it possible to add new parts to an existing assignation of sections. For this, one must define the initial PK, the final PK and select the right section of the list (to be found in the "Sections folder").

Decompress XML Files

The decompression of XMLK file: this is a tool that decompresses a compact XML file generated by Inroads. In this type of files, it is a necessary previous step for making it possible to convert the file to plan, elevation and sections. The first step needed is that of selecting the compressed file and then assigning a name to the decompressed file that will be generated. After Generate is pressed, the process of the decompression and writing of the new file is begun.

CD/CI Raw Data The CD/CI Raw Data utility is applicable for the extraction of the raw data from the observations made on the basis of a *.dc file with a total station. By pushing the folder icon, we can choose this file.

The program reads the file and orders the observations made in accordance with the stations. Showing all the data recorded. All the data shown can be exported in various ASCII formats, which are suitable for being processed in other programs such as MDT and Topcal. ASCII format exportations can be in full format or with the averages of the observations made.

Stationings

The stations are put in order and, with every station, we are shown: • • • • • • • • • •

Observation number Name of the base Height of the tool The scale Factor The reference base Prism height (m) The constant of the prism The Horizontal angle direct circle The Horizontal angle in reverse circle The azimuth typed. © SETTOP, Bofarull 14, 08027 Barcelona

Observations

The observations are ordered in accordance with the points and for each observation point, it shows: • • • • • • • • • • • •

Number of observation from the base Name of the approved base Name of the reference Height of the prism (m) Geometrical distance (applying the prism constant or not) Horizontal angle in direct circle Horizontal angle in reverse circle Vertical angle in direct circle Vertical angle in reverse circle Code or description of the point Mean square error of the distance observation. Mean square error of the horizontal and vertical angles.

Configuration

If we want to, we can configure the prism constant in the geometrical distances that it shows us (on the main screen it will indicate the configuration state), as well as the tolerances we want for the distance, horizontal and vertical angle.

Profiles from Roads to transverses This utility allows us to convert transversal profiles taken on site with the Survey Controller software to the format of the transversal profile files of the natural terrain (*.TER) of the Clip office software office. In order to process the files, one must have taken these profiles in the following mode: Survey >Stake-Out > Roads > Station and Axis d.

File selection

Pressing the folder symbol allows us to select the Survey Controller (*.dc) inlet file and create the Clip (*.ter) output file.

Apply Road Marks

On activating the tab, one can enter the alphanumerical code used by the user on site, which determines the existing road and allows Clip to treat it as such.

Apply Tolerance Factor

On activating the tab, one can introduce a numerical tolerance value of the Pk by profile. Š SETTOP, Bofarull 14, 08027 Barcelona


53

Minimum points per Profile

On activating the tab, one can enter a numerical value of the minimum points so as to be able to regard it as a transversal profile.

According to the element chosen, the corresponding boxes that define it will be activated. The end of the element can be defined by its length or by the PK of the part.

State of alignment

As the elements are inserted, the data calculated appear. One can Edit, Delete or Save them by pressing on the right button.

Axis Editor - Elevation PLUS VERSION only

The Elevation axis Editor makes it possible to enter a definition of the gradient.

Name of the elevation

Pushing the button allows the entering of the name of the elevation to be defined. The file generated has a Data Convert (*.maz) format. It can then be converted to other formats with the Axis Conversion functions.

Entering of Data

Entering the elevation is done manually, by entering the values defining the gradient. If the first element is involved, it only permits the definition of the initial PK and the level. The following vertexes can only be defined with the PK and the Level or by entering a vertical agreement (Kv) to make the transition between slopes more smoothly.

As the elements are inserted, the data calculated appear. One can Edit, Delete or Save them by pressing on the right button.
