Export point coordinates as .csv

Greetings all,

 

My quick question id for an alternative way of exporting a cluster of points as .shp files and then manipulating the .dbf file in order to create an excel/csv file.

 

Is there another way of exporting my data as .csv or excel from Map3D?

 

Thanks in advance

Gentlemen, the OP has no shapefiles: he just wanna avoid to create them.

He has a bunch of points, from which extracting the XYZ coords to an external .CSV, period.

There are several ways to accomplish that, either internal (command _DATAEXTRACTION) and external like this one.

if your .shp is in a map, open the data table and select the records to export, options export to .csv

Hi,

 

your approach exporting as SHP is probably the quickest but Map has a feature to create  CVS files - further details in Map help - "Running a Query in Report Mode":

 

http://docs.autodesk.com/MAP/2013/ENU/filesMAPUSE/GUID-82F678B9-EF66-4E42-B281-527E339E3BD8.htm

 

Basically you need to attach you drawing with the points,

create a query

create a report

execute query

 

Report can include ac-object properties (coordinates etc.) and map object data as well.

 

Good luck,

Rob
