When importing data into a new field book, a terrain model is automatically created. How do I prevent this from occurring?
If you do not wish to have a terrain model created at the time your field book data is imported, please make the following change to your Survey Project Settings:
In Project Explorer, go to the Civil Standards tab. Expand the tree to the Project Settings>Survey leaf. Highlight your survey settings, right-click, and select Properties.
This will launch the Element Information dialog. In this dialog, expand the Terrain Model menu. Change the variable for Create Terrain Model for All Field Books to False.
