Getting Started with Data Acquisition – Starting Data Acquisition

You can start Data Acquisition from the task list or from the (CAD/MicroStation) Tools menu:

Once Data Acquisition is started you get two panels, a Data Tree and a Details Panel:

The Data Tree is the main panel. It allows you to access the main functions, like importing, exporting, showing and hiding of data. Right click on tree nodes to access the related commands.

The Details Panel presents information associated with whichever node is currently selected in the Data Tree. The content of the Details Panel will change depending what you select in the tree. You can use this panel to review, check and edit detailed survey information.
