Lot summary in Carlson
Will Carlson do lot summaries (map checks, closure reports, or what ever you may call them) on lots with line and arc segments? Civil3d was able to do them.
This would be as part of a written report as a cogo computation around a lot to varify line and arc labels on the drawing, provide and area calculation and a closure precision of the lot.
I found the “textdeed” function which brings up what Carlson calls Map Check. This should be exactly what I’m looking for, and it works as expected for lots (polylines) if the lot is line segments only. Lots (polylines) with arcs, like along a ROW, it can’t handle it.
Is there a way a can get a cogo call around a lot (presumably a polylines) with bearing and distances calls along the lines then arc I do around the arcs till it closes, and area calculation and a misclosure?
An inverse is not what I think you are aiming for. That will not check the plat information and will yield a closure and area that are not based on the information (rounded numbers) as platted.
We have to submit lot closure reports for plats to the the reviewing agency and an inverse generated report will be rejected.
I don't use Carlson but it would amaze me that it doesn't have a map check program.
