I am using Power Geopak SS4, v8i.
I have been provided a tin surface file which I used to extract contours, breaklines, surface boundary and points. But the points were just text, not a specific point. I assume the text "base point" is the location representing the actual point in 3d space, from the surface. Is there a best way to extract just points or to know what portion of text represents the actual point northing, easting and elevation? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
The extract graphics tool is what you would use to extract points as a SPOT feature and create a .DAT file then create a .TIN file. If you use the element information tool you will see the X,Y,Z location of the text element. That is what gets extracted as a spot in the .DAT file.
