Another Carlson SurvCE Question
When I start a new project, a topo for example, I've been creating a job that just has control points. Then I create another job to store the actual topo points and simply reference in the control job. This works great but there's a minor nuisance I've come across that I can't seem to find an answer about. If I'm working in the topo job and set a control point, I don't see an option to also save the point to the control job (or better yet save it to the control job only). Does anyone know if this is even possible? I know I can copy the point over later but this is tedious and half the time I seem to forget. Any info would be appreciated.
Export the new control point(s) as a txt file (I think you can restrict the export to specific point numbers), then import it into the control job file.
I've never tried the control file, but I'm sure that's the way to go.
I dump my rw5 and a txt file onto a stick every night, so the next day, if I'm starting a new file, I just import the txt from the stick into the new job. Most of the time I just continue in the same job file from the day before, though.
What's the advantage to having two separate files for control and topo? Control are low numbers and topo 1000+
I keep all of my points in the same job, I just keep all of my control below 100. And then start any topo or stakeout points at 200. Then you have from 200-9999 at least available.
If you want to keep the separate jobs, the easiest thing to do is export the new control point to a text file. Then just import it into your control job. You can restrict your export to any number of points based on point number.
