Can adjusted this type of traverse with side shorts in civil 3D without using field book file? I attached the point file.These are the information of traverse.
1. Observed Fore Azimuth: 95.05 (95D 05’).
2. Original Back Azimuth : 275.05 (275D 05’).
3. Closeness Factor: (1.58 for a detailed traverse).
4. 9000 - Original coordinates of Starting Instrument Station
5. 9005 – Original coordinates of Starting Instrument Station
Point 9004 with the observed coordinates of the Starting Station
Can adjusted this traverse using compass method in civil 3D?
I have angle information.I included it above as follow.
1. Observed Fore Azimuth: 95.05 (95D 05’).
2. Original Back Azimuth : 275.05 (275D 05’)
This is closed traverse.
Yes. I noticed the azimuths. However you don't have the turned angles turned between the traverse stations. You could infer those by plotting the points and measuring the angles, but I wouldn't trust that without knowing the field procedure that was used in turning the angles.
Actually the only adjustment I've used in many years is Least Squares and that requires a lot of data from the field. Hopefully someone with more experience with this type of adjustments will answer in a while.
You could also use the Coodinate Geometry Editor on the Analyze Tab under survey. to obtain the angular info from a pline. and the use the balancing rules.
This thread is somewhat recent, so hopefully I'll get an answer to my question. It's related to the COGO editor mentioned above.
I have a polyline that I created using Mapcheck (Analyze Tab/Survey/Mapcheck). I loaded the polyline into the Coordinate Geometry Editor and all courses came in fine. When I choose the adjusment method (Crandall) and view the report, it shows only the original courses with the x, y, and z deltas as zeros. So then I choose to insert polyline and I get a message confirming the new polyline is based on the chosen adjustment. Ok, so I'm getting somewhere. But from this point, I'm not sure how to have the cogo editor display these deltas from before and after the adjustment. I've been using C3D for about 2 years but am somewhat new to traverse adjustments. I'm hoping I don't need to go through creating a survey database with all the garbage that goes along with that.
Hope there's an easy solution for this that I'm just overlooking or perhaps I'm just ignorant of the process.
Well, I just came across an option in Mapcheck (right-click on item in mapcheck list) that allows for an adjustment. On first glance, this appears to output all necessary data.
But I would still like to get this data confirmed within the cogo editor, since this produces a nice easy to understand report as well as a redundant check. Also, it gives you the option to insert cogo points on the adjusted polyline.
At the Dialogue box with all the Courses, there is the POB, and the Closing Point, select the arrow at the right, then select the point of closure. then it will show the error (No Adjustment) and the new info the adjustment you use.
Did you mean the button to choose the POB? When I do that, and pick the beginning point, I get a prompt for whether or not to use that as the point of closure for generating a closed traverse, which will then generate the deltas in the report if accepted. But choosing the point of closure directly gives no prompt.
To show my ignorance on the matter, in the cogo editor you can choose Crandall adjustment (which I believe the least squares is based on) but in the mapcheck adjustment, there is a direct option for least squares OR Crandall, among others.
Looks like these two methods each have their pros and cons, and when used correctly, will give the user sufficient analysis, whether the traverse is based on metes and bounds or legal descriptions (mapcheck), or on observed cogo points (cogo editor). The output data for the mapcheck method seems to be superior though.
To do a closure report / balance you need to have both a POB and a POC. We set up the tool so that if you pick a POB it will ask if you want to use that as the POC as well. The thinking was that were be more closed loops than open. The POB/POC can either be COGO points or picked points in the drawing.
