Setting Up in the Real World – GeoReferencing, naming your transforms

In MicroStation CONNECT Edition Update 10 (and AECOsim Building Designer Update 4) we have introduced the ability to edit the description of an attached GCS.

Previous articles in this series utilised individual transformed GCS's to locate individual buildings or facilities on a site, all of which had the same GCS description when listed in dialogs.

That description can now be edited:

to a more useful description, in this case the facility name:

and listed in the Reference dialog by turning on the GeoCS Description column:

Facilities 001 and 002 have edited descriptions, the others have not.

This enables immediate identification of the GCS used when referencing.

If a GCS is imported from a file, the edited description is imported too, so the source of a GCS is identifiable.
