About This File

This file is most useful for Landmark users but could be adapted to other plugin objects (PIOs). The purpose of these scripts are to take surveys of existing trees that consist of "dumb" data - pieces of geometry and text to label trees on a survey - and convert it into Existing Trees with the relevant text data associated.


The first network, "Test Proximity," runs a check to make sure that each piece of text is closest to its associated piece of geometry. This is necessary to make sure that the second script will work properly.


The second network takes the center of each piece of geometry and places an Existing Tree there. It will use the saved red symbol in the Resource Manager as a template, so if you use particular default settings for your Existing Trees, you can edit the red symbol. (Some day maybe there will be an Existing Tree Style!) The network will also transfer the text data to your chosen field of the Existing Tree PIO. In this network, it is set to transfer to the Tree No data field.


This network could be adapted to other PIOs if needed.

This is less of a review but more of a question. I've tried this script and I continue to get an error as shown. Would the fact that the test file is in metrics be the issue?

Response from the author:

Hey @rowbear97 - this sounds more like an error in one of your input parameters. If you unwrap the network and run it in debug mode, do you get a 0 after either of the outputs of the Filter node? If so, then you have to make sure that the "Group Name" matches your named group of objects exactly, and that there are text objects in that group.
