Saving Plot Files

Top  Previous  Next

The Viewer allows you to import “Feature” information from CaveBase, the COMPASS database engine. (See the CaveBase help-files for more information.) As a result, the Viewer allows you to save the current data to a plot file. Saving the plot file saves all the newly created features in the file. This file is a normal Plot file and if your read it back into the Viewer, all the database Feature information will be available for viewing.

 

Saving. To save the current plot data to a file, select the "File|Save Plot File" option from the menu bar. Simply select or enter the file you want to save the data to and click-on the "OK" button. You should use a different file name when you save this Feature data. Otherwise, the Project Manager may overwrite the file when it reprocesses your survey files.
