The surveys in a small cave project are often contained in a single Survey Data file. These instructions will tell you how to edit and/or view the data in a single survey file. You can also manipulate and view individual survey files that are a part of larger project files.


1. Selecting A Survey Data File. Begin by opening a survey data file. You can do this by selecting the "File|Open Data File" option from the menu bar. Remember that you can use this dialog box to change drives and folders to find the survey file you are looking for.


2. Enter Data For A New Survey. Begin by enabling the "Show Surveys" option and double click on the Survey Data File in the tree to expand the tree and display the surveys inside the file. You can add a new survey to the file by clicking on the "Add Survey" icon on the tool bar or by selecting the "Edit|I New Survey" from the menu bar. Once you have created a new survey, click on the newly created survey to highlight it and then click the "Edit Cave Survey or File" button. This will take you to the Survey Editor. Enter your survey data, save the data and exit from the editor.


3. Process The Data. Highlight the Survey Data file in the tree that you want to view. You highlight an item in the tree by clicking on it. Once you have selected the file, click the "Process And View Cave" button. The data in your file will be processed and then displayed by the Viewer.
