Materials, lighting, and photorealistic rendering create powerful presentations, plus easily share your work with AutoCAD, SketchUp, or print in 3D! Materials, lighting, and photorealistic rendering create powerful presentations of any architectural or mechanical design.
This dialog allows the user to specify how the text file s are formatted so that they can be imported. The Import Type section allows the user to specify how they want the data in the file to be treated.
The different import types are defined as follows: Point Only - All lines from the file which are determined to contain coordinate data will result in a single point feature to be generated.
Point, Line, and Area Features - Any string of two or more consecutive lines with coordinate data will result in a line or area feature. All isolated coordinate lines will result in a point feature.
Elevation Grid - All lines from the file which are determined to contain 3D coordinate data will be use generated a triangulated terrain which is then gridded to create a elevation grid. This grid has all the capabilities of an imported DEM, including contour generation, line of sight and view shed analysis, and raster draping.
When selecting print custom paper size autocad commands option, the Create Elevation Grid dialog will appear after setting up the ASCII file import options to allow setting up the gridding process. The Coordinate Column Order section allows the user to specify in what order the coordinates are found on coordinate lines in the file.
Coordinates can either be x followed by y i.
Elevation values, if any, are always assumed to come after the x and y values. The Columns to Skip at Start of Line setting controls what column the coordinates start in. For example, if the x and y coordinates are in the 3rd and 4th columns, set this value to 2 so that the coordinates will be grabbed from the appropriate place.
The Coordinate Delimeter section allows the user to specify what character the coordinates are separated by on coordinate lines. If the Auto-Detect option is selected, Global Mapper will attempt to automatically determine the coordinate delimeter.
This option will usually work and should probably be used unless you have trouble. The Coordinate Line Prefix section allows the user to specify whether coordinates start at the beginning of the line or if coordinate lines start with some other sequence of characters.
For example, some formats may start coordinate lines with the sequence "XY,". The Feature Classification section allows the user to specify what feature type to assign to area, line, and point features imported from the file.
If the Include attributes from lines with coordinate data option is selected, any text found AFTER the coordinate data on a line from the file will be including as attribute for the feature that coordinate is in.
If not selected, only lines from the file that are not determined to contain coordinate data will be used as attributes. If you are doing a Point Only import and the Column Headers in First Row of File option is checked, values in the first line from the file will be used at the names of attributes for attributes found in coordinate data lines.
This is useful for things like CSV files. If the Treat 3rd coordinate value as elevation option is selected and a numeric value is found immediately following the x and y or lat and lon coordinate values, that value will be treated as an elevation. Otherwise, the value will be included as an attribute if the Include attributes from lines with coordinate data option is selected.
Typically you want to leave this option checked unless you are importing point data in which the 3rd column is an attribute that occasionally contains all numeric values, such as well names. The offset entered will first be added to each coordinate, and then each coordinate will be multiplied by the scale factor.
When generic ASCII text files are imported, Global Mapper will scan the attributes associated with each feature and look for any attribute names that are known to it.
The following is an abbreviated list of attribute names that are currently recognized by Global Mapper when generic ASCII text files are read see the links below the list for more complete lists: The value must match one of the classification names in Global Mapper to work.
It will also work for user-created custom types. If a match is found, that symbol will be used for the point feature.The list of paper sizes depends on the printer or plotter that you have selected in either the Plot or Page Setup dialog box.
