  1. This tool needs to be improved urgently by Landmark to make it useful to users It doesnt have the first station's coordinate fields so that the user can input and edit these values There is no angular and lineal closure values reporting There are no parcel mosaic generation tools (joining by vertex and lines) or commands select common lines by the user and translate one to the other to create a parcel mosaic There is no COGO routines to subdivide a property A traverse list with all leg's distance and bearing/azimuth of a parcel is not displayed or generated for export
  2. There are so many missing features for the property line tool that it a major bug, practically USELESS!! Can not imagine why VW did not implemented COMPUNEERING's LANDESIGN surveying module into Landmark?
  3. So far I tried and cant see them after importing them it would be great if the coordinates would be editable by the users too!
  4. I have suffered this project georeferencing settings that are not included in the design layers which I dont get the rationale for this crazy concept? I am doing a georeferenced project EVERYTHING has to be georeferenced! HELLO VW?
  5. VW has always had problems with georeferenced coordinates as well as UTM my guess is that they are not using fully complaint WGS-84 G1150 datum parameters. I guess if VW would have implemented a tool with Esri similar to ArcGIS for AutoCAD all these shapefile import/export would be transparent to us users...
  6. All GIS and BIM projects require georeferenced coordinate system
  7. Archicad has this GE Button so obviously Nemetshek has the programming already and they own both software so what is the problem in implementing this in simple update?
  8. GIS and Google Earth bidirectional data flow Georeferenced datum, grid and geoid models support Land survey COGO tools and DTM
  9. GPSTrack Maker does it via the mentioned VIEW IN GOOGLE EARTH button and it only cost US$100 so lets not get deviated with price or cost to implement such a simple export command to facilitate the life of the users!
  10. Indeed I have paid for 2008, 2009 and 2010 version updates and this sad excuse of DTM and survey input or its very poor GIS integration have not been improved an iota... I think that if VW is not capable or it is not interested in this market segment it should drop LandMark module, since it is not up to the high standard CAD software that we grew used to from MiniCAD to VW
  11. Thanks monkey but is there any workflow available by anyone how to generate vector maps?
  12. I always need these vector maps for all my project's drainage design solutions can someone help me generate it in VW? Here is an example generated of Mt St Helen contours in Surfer 9 http://www.ssg-surfer.com/ssg/detailed_description/surfer7.jpg [img:left]http://www.ssg-surfer.com/ssg/detailed_description/surfer7.jpg[/img]

  14. Nope I am looking for a VIEW IN GOOGLE EARTH button just like AutoCAD, GPSTrackMaker, ArchiCAD, etc
  15. Thanks Peter for your assistance with this issue ... the confusion comes with the minor and major labels in the upper part and the single show labels in the 2D view ... it should have the show minor contour labels and show major contour lables to be more clear to the users
  16. Miguel you are 100% correct that by programming scripts and code you can provide the much needed GIS operability into Landmark ... but then what are the VW programmers doing if we the users have to lose our time learning how to program instead of our real work? The question should be the other way around: Why VW hasnt embraced and integrated into the GIS workflow when every other CAD software has been doing it on a fast track basis? All terrain surveys and most BIM require interoperability with GIS, both online and desktop versions, as well as most planting project the same. I dont have the time to learn scripts or code programming, I need a real CAD software that imports and exports GIS files as well as KMZ/KML files without flat earth distorsion!
  17. Every "normal" CAD software already has "view in Google Earth" exporting button, including ARCHICAD! Why doesnt VW can not implement this ?
  18. I have been posting for long but nobody from VW R&D listens.. WITHOUT georeferenced DATUM (namely WGS-84, NAD83 and NAD-27 Datums) and UTM/State Coordinates grid projections SUPPORT in VW Landmark you are inducing distorsions on the maps coming from Shapefiles from ArcGIS and other GIS programs. VW is regretfully a flat earth application!
  19. I am doomed since I do a lot of soundings so all these DTM are concave so I guess that VW will be crashing forever...
  20. Thanks Islamon for your application it helps but doesnt solve downloading and uploading field surveys and stake out files from VW VW R8D apparently thinks that terrain data is created in the minds of the users Data has to be surveyed, downloaded, edited prior generating a DTM and the inverse process is required to get the stake out points back in the field for construction or planting.
  21. This is needed more and more in all projects specially federal funded ones so please implement this datum support feature The earth is not FLAT ...
  22. This is a must have DTM tool no matter what it is coming by default in US$300 DTM software so how come we are making excuses for Landmark not to have them long time ago This is part of the tools to sell our services so come on R&D get you act together and give us what we need now please
  23. Thanks Peter but I searched all the settings in the Site Model and there is no contour labeling option anybody knows who to do it?
  24. Can anyone tell me why VW2009 SP4 each contour polylines do not have their elevations in their properties?
  25. Where is the VW LM menu to show the major and minor contour labels (display/hide option)? Can not find it in VW help or manuals....
