I have a series of ordnance survey data in the UK OS grid and I need to convert them to UK SnakeGrid. Is this possible within microstation? if so can someone illustrate to me how
It should be noted that there is no single UK snakegrid rather there are snakegrids which are local to each project and can also be tied into other snakegrids. Typically (as Jon has mentioned) this would be to along a specific rail route or motorway etc... and each snakegrid requires its own unique snake grid parameters file which is loaded using by the conversion software and is created by University College London (UCL). My employer was going to purchase the aforementioned SnakeGrid Transformer however they opted instead for SnakeGrid Projector for FME Desktop as it was more useful to my employers Geotechnical Team who performed the necessary conversions when requested.
Thanks Barry. with respect to what you have hinted, how do one determine the exact SnakeGrid in a known geographical location
I would recommend that you contact Dr Steven Schooling ( email@example.com ) and he will likely be able to tell you if a snakegrid already exists or not for a specific location and give you any other answers to queries that you may have.
