UK ordnance survey national grid included in Document Georeferencing

Question

I would like the OSGB36 projection used for the GB national grid to be an option in the Document georeferencing settings. It would also be good to have a tool that allowed placing points at OS grid coordinates (or indeed WGS84 coordinates) easily.

Did this get implemented? I use an acoustics GIS system & for workflow purposes really need VW to georeference OSGB36 / British Transverse Mercator coordinates. Or at least a conversion utility that remaps a WSG84 .dxf file to OSGB36. thanks for any advice!

VW Landmark can now import projected coordinate reference system (CRS) data through their EPSG code IF you have VW2017 or later.

 

Go to File>Document Preferences>Georeference

In the dialog switch projection to WKT (Well Known Text) and then use the CRS LookUp button to select a coordinate system and its projection based on the EPSG code or its CRS name.

Searching for OSGB gives the following options:

PS @JimW Is there a way to avoid duplicates when pasting a screen capture from memory?

THANK-YOU! This worked. Tried it out on a few different projects & I'm getting consistent results. Able to move maps between my acoustics GIS system & VW seemlessly. Much appreciated. .gh
