Connect is designed to allow the conversion of raw field information
to a format known as the RW5 format or to the FBK format required for the Survey
Database of Civil3D and Land Desktop. Once converted, the programme then
offers the survey information in the editor for amendments and additions of the
survey data. Once the field file is amended, and the alterations saved to
the RW5 file, we can reduce the information to coordinates or save to the
Autodesk Field Book file (FBK).
For reduction purposes, you can nominate a control file in CSV (Point
number, East, North, Elevation, Code) or RW5 format. The
coordinates from the control file override the coordinates in the field file if
the same point exists in both. Once the observations are reduced, you can
use the transformation capability of Reducer to translate, rotate, and even
scale the field information based on a datum line nominated.
