AutoCAD Map 3D :: Change Original Coordinate Systems

Mar 9, 2012

 Installation of Autocad Map 2012 provides a list of thousands of coordinate systems, datums, geodetic transformations, etc.. but I see that the system doesn't allows editing (they are read-only) and always I have to create new systems, new datums ..Is there any way to make it editable?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Unable To Change Coordinate Systems While Importing Points

Nov 3, 2012

I want to know why I can't change coordinate of points while importing points from Points menu?

I created new file, assigned any coordinate system to the model. Opened Import points windows there, created new file format which there I assigned Coordinate zone transform to the coordinate system of the text file and imported my text file. But the coordinates of points didn't changed or transformed. When I do it by Survey in Toolspace its works good. I want to know whether I did any wrong or it is problem of software.

I use AutoCADCivil 2013 64 bit in Windows 7 64 bit!

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Library Not Showing All Of Coordinate Systems

Jul 19, 2012

I am using Civil 3D 2012 with SP1. When I use data connect and attempt to edit the coordinate system the Coordinate System Library that pops up only shows 5 No Datum coordinate systems. The Datum box under Show is uncheck, unfortunately it is also greyed out and uncheckable. How do I get this box checked?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Using Multiple Coordinate Systems At Once

Jul 14, 2012

I'm finding myself on more and more sites that use multiple coordinate systems and height datums.

We have 3 on this job. One is the MGA zone 50 GDA94, another is just an offset of this and the third is a strange local grid with offsets and rotations.

We have Excel spreadsheets that can convert between the systems, but that requires several extra steps per point.

Is it possible to define each coordinate system in one drawing so that I could select which system I wanted to use, input the points and then select the main coordinate system so it converts the coordinates directly? It would mean less steps and I would have greater confidence in this system. 

We have the parameters for all systems.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Multiple Coordinate Systems / Units?

Jul 17, 2012

I'm enlisted in the United States Air Force and am working with the Navy for topo surveys.  I'm bringing my information into AutoCAD Map 3D 2010 and using the coordinate system UTM84-4N.  I can't figure out why when I bring in my survey .dwg, all of the points are in the middle of the ocean. 

I've tried to manually project the coordinate systems onto each file and reference them.  I've changed units to meters.  I've copied with base point 0,0 and pasted as the same.  I've even opened a fresh file, gave that a projection, imported the drawing from "Map Explorer" and queried "ALL" and redrew the file and still nothing.  I've checked the Geo-Markers and they're obviously off.  Is there a way to match them and have it scaled properly?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Drawing In Coordinate Systems

Nov 6, 2012

If I set up my Civil 3D drawing in some known coordinate system, e.g. State Plane, in the "drawing settings", can I then toggle my drawing into other known systems, e.g. UTM, by changing the coordinate system under "drawing settings"?

If not, how are the coordinate settings used?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Data And Different Coordinate Systems

Aug 1, 2012

I have a problem with different coordinate systems. I have a drawing in old Finnish coordinate system (KKJ, kaista 4) and I have a point file, which is made in ETRS-GK29 coordinate system. When I try to transfer the points to the drawing, the points will land way off from the drawing or I get this error message "Coordinate transformation from ETRF89.FinlandGK-29 to FINL-KKJ4 failed for point located at {29511662.554000,6948599.365000}. This usually indicates the point falls outside the boundaries of the destination coordinate system". I have checked and the point {29511662.554000,6948599.365000} should be over the drawing.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Disappearing Coordinate Systems

Jul 9, 2012

My Civil 3D 2012 coordinate systems normally displayed on the units and zone tab of the drawing settings have disappeared.  On existing drawings the coordinate system code is still displayed.  On new drawings the code appears as a symbol - a period or a comma or something.  I can enter the coordinate system code and the program recognizes it.

My Civil 3D 2011 coordinate systems display as expected.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Default Sketch Coordinate Systems?

Jan 30, 2012

Is there a way to set Inventor so that the sketch origin defaults to the part origin?  I find it very frustrating that it always defaults to some random corner of the part's body.  It can screw up a part if you decide later on to modify the part such that you eliminate the point to which a coordinate system was defined.  Also, when copying and pasting a sketch to new work planes it can be a pain to figure out which point is the origin of the orignal sketch if the pasted sketch is misaligned. 

I know you can edit the coordinate system after a sketch is created, but I'd prefer not to have to rememember to do that with every sketch.

This was brought up about 6 years ago and there was no formal resolution


In the second-to-last post John-IV8SP1mentions an option under 'Application Options' for an older version of AI, but I cannot find it in the 2012 applicaton options.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Image Coordinate Systems Transformation And Rotation?

Apr 1, 2010

I have some UTM images that I need to convert to State Plane. If I import them into map with raster design and export them to the state plane coordinate system, they work just fine, but I can't figure out a way to get rid of the black wedge that it makes along the edges of images.

If I query them in using map I can transform the coordinate system, but then every time I open the drawing it takes like 5 minutes just to open.

What has everyone else done to use multiple images in a drawing and transform or convert the coordinate system of the images?

AutoCAD Map 3D :: How To Create Multiple Unique Coordinate Systems

May 17, 2011

A - Autodesk will fix them in a timely fashion during this release - Not holding my breath here

B - Others won't spend hours trying to figure it out.

In my case, I need to create multiple unique coordinate systems called Low Distortion Projections (Google it for explanation.)

Here are the problems identified so far with the 2012 version of the Coordinate Library

Coordinate System Categories

1 - The regional 'containers' that hold coordinate systems definitions. You cannot create an empty container. It requires at least 1 coordinate system definition to be created. When creating a container put an arbitrary coordinate system definition in. This assists with item 2b.

Coordinate System Definitions

2a - Getting started - There is no provision to just select an existing datum or ellipsoid. One must 'create' a new definition that may vary in name only. The vast majority of us using their products will not actually create new ellipsoids or datums just utilizing them as the basis for other projections.

2b - Creating definition - Continuing the definition process the definition needs to be placed in a coordinate system category. Due to the problems identified in item 1 this creates a circular error. The workaround being item 1 rather than creating multiple definitions in the wrong container then going back to fix them.

2c - Scale Reduction - This should be renamed to Scale Factor to fit with the rest of the known world as the value can be greater or less than unity (1.000000) In my case the values all happen to be something greater than 1. While on this subject, the autodesk programmers set this to do something totally unexpected. No matter what you set the value to, if you save and reedit the projection value will be displayed as '1'

2d - Missing Projection definition form data - I went through the projection definitions and found the following projection types were missing their fields in the form:

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Map Wspace Coordinate Systems Missing

Jan 8, 2012

Got a new Windows 764 bit computer. Installed 2012.  Using the Map Wspace to attach jpegs.  I connect to the image and go to edit the coordinate system.  On the new computer, I only have a half dozen coordinate systems, none of which are PAN83.

I go to my old XP pro 32 bit computer and the whole list of coordinate systems comes up.

Groundplane view = Bottom
Home view = Front(up), Bottom, Right

But I want it to be like this:

Sketchplane = YX(+Z)
Sketchplane view = Top

Photoshop :: Does PS Change Exif Of Original File

Mar 7, 2009

I participate in an online photography challenge group. In order for your photo to be legal you have to be able to submit the original file, with unaltered exif, as proof that the photo was taken during the right dates, and that the editing steps you took were legal.

I have never had an issue, however there is now some debate amongst a few people.

A certain photog claims that she shot a photo in jpg, used PS (it might have been elements though) to edit the photo, then used "save as" to save it as a different file name. When she had to submit the original file, the exif was changed and she was dq'd. She is blaming PS for changing the original file even though she never saved over the original.

My own stance is that she must hae used the "import photos" command to get the pics from her camera to her HD, and that is likely what changed the exif on the original. (I always use a copy and paste into a new folder on my HD)

So my question is... who is correct? Does PS Or PS Elements change your original file just by opening it, even if you do not ever "save", and only use "save as"? Or am I correct in saying the only way that could happen is during an "import from camera" command?

Please let me know so we can put this issue to rest. It is causing the whole jpg vs raw thing to flare up again, since you cannot save to a camera propriatary raw file.

Lightroom :: Metadata Change After Edit Original?

Sep 9, 2012

When I take say a TIFF file that has been imported into Lightroom and edit in PS by choosing "Edit Original" and than save the edit in PS, when I get back to Lightroom the image has a metadata error icon on it.  When I click on the icon it asks if it should apply the disk or Lightroom metadata.  I click on disk and all seems well.  But why is it doing this and is there a way to get it not to do so?  Is it correct to use the disk metadata?

Premiere Pro :: Change Original Source Files In Project?

Mar 27, 2014

I have a project which has become very disorganized over the last year of editing due to PPs poor ability to effectively share sequences/projects across multiple computers. My assistant editor used a different computer and so the links in the sequences point to multiple "source" files in the project (some in imported folders). However, there is ultimately only one original video clip. The problem is that Premiere Pro won't allow me to delete the nested versions of the source files without also REMOVING the clips in each of the sequences that uses them. For example, the project folder looks like this:
- Original File Folder
- Imported File Folder (imported on one of the many exchanges between editor and assistant editor)
- Sequence version 1 (Uses the second video clip, not the first - although they are ultimately the same video file)
If I delete the Imported File Folder, which only has a mirrored reference to the same video file as in the Original File Folder, then the clip in Sequence Version 1 dissapears. What I expect, rather, is to see a "missing media" message in the sequence so I can reconnect it to the version in the Original File Folder. But I can't. BIG HOLE in Premiere Pro CC.
Why do I want to do this? In a large project with hundreds of video clips, keeping order is very important. With the sequences using multiple "versions" of the same video clip, that order goes down the tubes and it becomes impossible to work.
