Product Description

DAT/EM MapEditor is a toolkit with many time-saving tools for AutoCAD® or MicroStation®. MapEditor for AutoCAD is an ARX application that works completely within AutoCAD and AutoCAD-based applications. MapEditor for Microstation is an MDL application that works completely within MicroStation and MicroStation-based applications.

Key Features MapEditor for AutoCAD
  • 3D TO 2D conversion of polylines

  • BREAK polylines along cutting edges

  • BREAKLINE FILTER changes the layer of DTM points that are located near linework

  • CLEANUP fixes polyline errors that AutoCAD AUDIT misses

  • CROSSCHECK searches for crossing polylines and adds vertex nodes

  • DTM DISTRIBUTOR combines two or more DTM point sets into a grid

  • EDITLINE draws or combines existing polylines into a new polyline section

  • ELEVATE drapes objects based on a DEM

  • EXTEND lengthens or trims polylines to meet other polylines

  • FILTER reduces number of polyline vertices and maintains initial appearance

  • FIX Z values on 2D polylines that contain z errors (usually from translation)

  • GRIDIT inserts a map sheet grid with northing and easting text

  • JOIN combines polylines

  • POLYLINE LENGTH finds polylines by length or by number of vertices and distance

  • VISIT looks at result coordinates

Key Features MapEditor for MicroStation
  • BREAK elements at selected vertices, near points, or on an intersecting element or fence

  • BREAKLINE FILTER deletes/modifies points from the area in or near line string/fences/shapes

  • CHANGE ATTRIBUTES standardizes or changes combinations of level, color, weight and line code

  • CHECK ATTRIBUTES creates a report of unverified objects for interactive editing

  • CLOSE LINE STRING turns line strings to shapes

  • CROSSCHECK verifies intersections and adds vertex nodes

  • CURVE TO LINE STRING turns curves into line string (also works in reverse order)

  • DELETE objects based on attributes

  • DTM DISTRIBUTOR merges multiple DTM point distributions into one evenly spaced DTM grid

  • FIX COMPLEX HEADER verifies, repairs, and compresses complex line strings and shapes

  • JOIN combines line strings

  • TOUCH extends or trims lines to create intersections and adds vertex nodes

  • VISIT allows the user to look at specific objects or coordinate lists.
