4 Class SummarySee how easy it is to input data in the Coordinate Geometry Editor and run results and reports from one simple interface. Some deeds require a lot more input than the typical tools will allow, so one of the only ways to recreate some deeds is by using this COGO Editor.We will also explore some other useful COGO tools. The Mapcheck Analysis tools are a great way of checking things as well, so we will review how to use that tool.There are also numerous other new features in AutoCAD Civil 3D that are very useful in a survey workflow that we will review.
5 Learning Objectives At the end of this class, you will be able to: Use the COGO EditorUse the Mapcheck Analysis toolsFind and utilize the "hidden" COGO toolsRecreate deeds better and more accurately
11 Perform a Mapcheck Analysis by selecting AutoCAD Civil 3D line and curve labels to determine values from label objects based on the precision of the annotation of the label object, or enter mapcheck data manually. A mapcheck analysis is typically performed for each labeled polygon that represents a parcel, a labeled parcel object, or survey figure to ensure that errors and omissions are minimized. If error is introduced and accumulated, the coordinates of the last segment endpoint will not equal that of the point of beginning (POB) which creates the 'error of closure'. The report is computed based on the start and end coordinates of each parcel segment, relative to the coordinates of the POB and the previous segment.
15 The Coordinate Geometry Editor includes features that enable you to enter, edit, and output 2D traverse data. You can create 2D traverses from existing COGO data, load it from a polyline, or manually enter known data. You can save traverses for later modification, or generate traverse reports.
