Correct file name for an Aerial dgn file

I am working on a plans submittal where several sheets will require aerials. Generally, I like to create an Aerials.dgn, reference in all the aerial rasters, and then reference that dgn into any drawing where it is needed. The problem, I cannot find a QC compliant file name for my Aerials.dgn.


Is there an appropriate name for a file or this type or is there another procedure I should follow. I'd like to avoid having to reference the rasters into each individual drawing.

  • I typically a file name such as TOPORD99_AERIAL.DGN which passes compliancy.

  • Yes, Michael is correct. The QC rules are typically triggered on the first six characters of the file name so using TOPORD followed by any other characters will trigger the use of the TOPORD rule file. The only other consideration is to make sure a valid level is active when the images are attached, I recommend using the level ImageAttachment_dp which is intended to be used when placing any images in a DGN file.

  • That sounds good to me. Thanks for the input. I will begin implementing that now.

    Thanks!

  • Actually I had one further questions concerning the location of the actual raster images. I put them in our survey folder and created another folder called Aerials where the sids and sdws are stored. Will this be QC compliant?
