Coordinate list export of pipes

Does anyone know how I can export multiple start and end points of multiple lines of a pipeline layer?


I understand the process below is handy for exporting coordinates of multiple points.


Here's one way to do it:

1. Select the Layer in Display Manager and click Table.

2. In the Table under Options choose Create a Calculation.

3. Write an expression like this:  X (  Geometry  )  and make sure that it validates.

4. Go back into your Table to view your calculated field -- do the calculated coordinates look correct? If yes, then

5. Go back to options and choose Manage Calculations. Make a New calculation like this:  Y (  Geometry  ) 


Many Thanks

You are using FDO layers so with the FDO Label/Expression Engine, you can do a few things, as you said ...


If I have to do the same for a lot of FDO lines/plines on many DWGs, I think that I would export the FDO to SHP/SDF , then MAPIMPORT to get a DWG with ODs (Object Datas) ...

Then do a classic Query (from the Drawings Group) and generate a "good old" report with ACAD Properties : X1/Y1/Z1 coords and X2/Y2/Z2 coords

and I will get all beginning points and end points of ALL lines/plines ...


Bye, Pat
