Grid vs Ground: Converting Coordinates

 

 

 

 

This topic discusses converting coordinates between Grid and Ground.

When you import data or really any time in TPC, you can convert grid coordinates to ground or visa versa. 

Converting Between Grid and Ground (5:01) - TPC Desktop 2016 lets you easily convert between grid and ground coordinates.


Using a Base Point and Scale

This is a very simple method of scaling points about a base point, and is used by most CAD programs.

In TPC, you provide a base point and a scale factor and TPC applies the scaling to the points you select.


Converting on Import

When you import coordinates, you can convert them from grid to ground or visa versa.


Converting on Export

When you export coordinates, you can convert them from grid to ground or visa versa.


Converting Existing Survey Points

You can convert existing survey points anytime in the Convert Coordinates dialog.

TPC prompts you for a base point and a scale factor.  Then you tell TPC which points you want to convert.
