Is there any way to multiply the value of Z coordinate for many points selected, in the same time? For example, I selected many points, and need to double their Z value, but on an easier way, not one by one? Thanks
Please pay attention to this point: if you manually edit a .DBF file belonging to a shape-set, you can add or erase columns in the spreadsheet, but it's NOT allowed to add or erase rows.
If you only need the calculation, export the pint with the z value as a property, put the sdf into a map and open the data table, calculate z*2.
Do you need to move the points or create a new set of points at the new z value?
Actually, I attended to move plenty of points along the Z axe. To duplicate Z value for all the points in the same time, but as I'm a beginner, didn't know how. I tought, it must be that it is easy. Maybe it actually is, but when you are not familiar with Map 3D, it seems dificult. Now I have some inputs and ideas, so I'll try. Of course, it needs much more time for me. Thanks a lot
I believe that a recent problem with the suggestion of editing a .dbf is that MS Excel 2010 no longer allows you to save back in the DBase IV format. However, a work-around I found was a gentleman in Australia selling a "add-on" re-enabling this feature for $30 US.
Just want folks to be aware before investing too much labor.
OpenOffice will allow a save back to .dbf also.(and it's free and will handle the native .xls files as well)
True, thanks for bringing it up - I use it on my personal machine & forgot to mention....
