Hello,
Can someone help me?
I need to create cogo with elevations for stake out of parking lot. What Is there most efficient way to do this in Civil 3d? Thanks so much.

I assume you've actually designed the lot already with a surface? Just
place points wherever you want and then use the "Elevations from surface"
tool to apply the proposed elevations. Then you can export them to your
data collector.

Hello Matt,
Thank you for your reply.
I will try to do this as I don't have much of experience with surfaces.
Thanks a lot again.

Matt,
I decided to do this in LDD :-)
I'm creating points "as I go" - with elevations of eop and top of drainage structures. Do I need to create also pnts with elevations on the sewer structures or storm and eop will be efficient for my surface?
Then I plan to build surface from pnts that I created and do pnts, create pnts - surface, random points.
Can you tell me what you think about this?
thanks

I guess it really depends if you are planning to have grade breaks at those
sewer locations. If not, there should be no need to create points there if
you're planning on making a surface.
