Mapcheck for Record Survey and Plat Analysis


Basic Mapcheck Analysis for Record Surveys and Plats


Alan Gilbert of Autodesk explains the basics and some of the nuances of the Civil 3D Mapcheck tool.
Note he starts this video with a load of a saved external Traverse file from the old COGO or much improved Traverse Editor.
Where do you store your project library of these? Ok. That is way too easy to miss.
Many useful Mapcheck tricks are covered here.
From the Civil Imersion blog.

Yes. Civil 3D uses Labels for the Mapcheck tool not geometry which blows some CAD minds.
Stored Mapcheck objects do not appear in the Toolspace. That's annoying.
Every Parcel in a Site Parcel also includes another form of mapcheck as a fundamental property of a resolved collection of Parcel segments.
That is not at all the same thing. That geometry based Site Parcel topology data is reportable and exportable too.

These issues are discussed in detail in Universe of Parcel Inverses and Mapchecks - Part 5
This is part of an in-depth series of posts on Civil 3D Parcels. You can follow all the Parcel links.
