Comments from FG to MSCAD

Post by Richard Sands » Thu Jul 07, 2011 2:39 pm

I Posted this in the FG but its really more relevant to MScad as its there I want to use my field comments.

Could we please have a (quick) way fo finding 'Comments' in the data collected in the field.
Unless I'm mistaken the only way is to peruse the Raw Data file but that's tedious as there is nothing to indicate what is an actual comment.

OC,OP11,N 5422843.6487,E 451478.8150,EL63.2630,--DH
--Orientation Notes
-- Observed Values: HA 302°46'33" VA 87°42'26" SD 163.865m HD 163.734m HR 1.600m
-- Observed Reference: Point
-- Distance Calculated: 163.738m
-- Distance Error: -0.004m
-- BS Elevation: 68.219m
-- BS Elevation Error: -3.319m
--hi 1.615

I frequently use comments and it is time consuming and in large files easy to miss some, several, comments added in the field.

I am with you on this one, there must be a simpler way to view and report on this info. i would love to see that information placed on a seperate level so that I doesn't have to be typed in manually.
