Hi everyone,


The coordinates that we can apply in Revit (project/shared) aren't exactly the same to have real world projection coordinates (WGS84)??


If not how can we convert the revit shared coordinates to real world projection coordinates?


Thanks in advance for your time and help.

The Survey Point is designed to represent a known point in the physical world such as a geodetic survey marker. The following Revit Clinic blog post has more information on Shared Coordinates in Revit:

Note: While the blog posting was written for 2010, the basic information still applies for current versions.
