Entering Links and Fixed Stations.

Top  Previous  Next

Links are a way in which caves with duplicate survey station names can be connected together. It is also a way in which survey stations can be tied to fixed geographic locations.


To enter links, select a survey file (.DAT) from the Survey Tree and then press the "Edit Node" button. When the window appears, select the "Links" page.


You simply type the links into the spreadsheet display. If you are entering links to connect surveys together, simply type the station name of the link into the first cell. If you are entering fixed station information, you enter the East, North and Vertical position into the remaining cells.


You can insert a blank link into the list by clicking on the "Insert" button. You can delete the highlighted link by clicking on the "Delete" button. Here is more detailed information about links:
