What Da Heck does N/F mean?
« on: March 03, 2008, 06:15:14 PM »
I have to work on a Alta Survey and convert it to a "new work plan"  so I will be complaining alot.
I (and now we) have a question.
What does N/F mean?  this is in reference to parcel own by so and so followed by what is presumed to be the lot number.  The "N/F" is the first line in the text.

Side note, much to my surprise and enjoyment these 4 lines of text is Mtext and not Dtext.
I + XI = X is true ...  ... if you change your perspective.

Okay what is this symbol mean?  It is not on the legend.
On a layer called "Traverse.

I think it is where he took his shot?

survey point of some kind . . . probably part of the traverse.  given the low number, #11 might be a control point.  the purple lines are components of the TIN surface.

That symbol, the triangle with a circle in it is standard notation for a traverse point.  Hence, the point name of "TR/PK"   That means that it is a traverse point and a Parker-Kalon nail.

Cool.  Thank you.

TIN stands for ?  those line (over top of two other lines) are on a layer called "TRI_LINES".

I am just trying to get rid of the Surveyor stuff and leave what the Client/Contractor can see or suppose to know about.  I am trying to leave his file as an xref but I have to go in make tweaks.  Like move all the parcel text and street names off of the same layer as boundary line text stuff.  But overall, very minor tweaking so far, thanks in part to veiwport layer overrides and a good drafter on the other end of this (only one tweak of putting the waterline to by color when he overrode it to the same color.)

The lousy part is that his file is not complete becuase he has to wait for the snow to melt to finish his survey.  So the tweaks to his survey will have to be repeated.

The smoothest convert to date or I getting better.  I doubt the latter.

The one point description TR/PK would suggest that it is a set or found PK nail in the traverse.
The other one TR/TB could be traverse Tie Back (a check shot of sorts to see if they closed)
Or TB could be a Temporary Benchmark.

TIN = Triangulated Irregular Network

TRI_LINES those would be the Triangles in your TIN

Have a class with me, and you might be able to take a whole bunch of days off.

Second thoughts; that TR/TB point could also be a Traverse point, TB could represent the Total Station Base (transmitter base) location.  I would like to see the original data, and figure out the goal is with it.  As I think there might be a better workflow, that would reduce your 'cleanup' and conversion time and possibly the need to perform said operations repeatedly.
