Rantin & how to's from the Med
AKA trying to keep the peace!
Today we're trying something new, with my trusty assistant Ricardo.
As I may have mentioned it seems that every feature needs to be illustrator standard for the reports in France, and there have been instances of entire sites being re-digitised :s
So we (well Ricardo at the moment)are starting a test in digitising each plan individually (as we would in illustrator) but in CAD as DXF format. Richard is attaching data like normal for CAD, and adding labels for the illustrator (me). When he's done, the features from this drawing are pasted and merged in to the site plan (where we can GIS it), and the dxf is opened in illustrator and made to look pretty.
The resposables are happy, and my spatial data is preserved. Simples.... I await much critism
P.S. It's in CAD as Richard is CAD trained, and not so much GIS trained.
P.P.S The same thing but a drawing in GIS and Illustrator will be another test in the future.
P.P.P.S Ricardo says his mouse is too small. I have declined to comment on the matter
