The Source CAD File

  • It is your decision whether to make any changes to the layer structure in your current CAD template.

  • The object is to select and attribute only a few elements from your CAD drawing and export them as a shapefile.

  • If placing these features on different layers, renaming layers, or establishing any other standards that facilitate an eventual export, copy, or save down into this separate DWG will speed or enhance this process, then you might make these types of modifications to your CAD workflow.

  • Your challenge is to make this process as seamless and easy as possible.

  • How you, as CAD operators, get to this point is up to you, as only you know what will work best within the CAD framework and software you operate with.

  • Today is a good time to share your expertise and experience with others.


Considerations before beginning
Considerations before beginning

  • Export to Kentucky Single Zone Coordinate System

  • Contain only the following:

    • Proposed Boundary

    • Current Approved Boundary

    • Fills

    • Permanent Impoundments

    • Haul Roads

    • Bonding Increment Boundaries (if applicable)

  • All export features must be closed polygon elements.

  • For haul roads, the polygon area would be the right of way edges but if the roads are polylines these could be buffered into polygons.

  • Need to exclude non-permitted areas (create donuts).

  • Create or use template provided for object data table?


Assign coordinate system
Assign Coordinate System

  • Because if you will be exporting to Ky Single Zone (ft) the software needs to know your current coordinate system

  • ADESETCRDSYS



Assign your coordinate system for this drawing ky83f
Assign your Coordinate System(for this drawing KY83F)

  • ADESETCRDSYS


Assign your coordinate system to your drawing remember this does not transform the drawing
Assign your Coordinate System to your drawing(remember this does not transform the drawing)

  • ADESETCRDSYS


next

  • The exported features need to be closed polygons

FIX


Closing features
Closing features

  • The exported features need to be closed polygons….

  • In PROPERTIES are polylines set to “closed”?


next

  • If there are areas within the permit boundary that are not permitted then they need to be excluded

gas wells, cemetery?


Creating polygon with islands holes or discontinuous polygons
Creating polygon with islands, holes, or discontinuous polygons

  • Use PROXYGRAPHICS,GROUP, and MAPPOLYLINETOPOLYGON commands

  • 1st Set the PROXYGRAPHICS system variable to 0 (does not save image with the drawing; a bounding box is displayed instead)


Creating polygon with islands holes or discontinuous polygons1
Creating polygon with islands, holes, or discontinuous polygons

  • Select inner and outer polygons to group

  • Use Group command

  • Name Group

  • Select polygons


Creating polygon with islands holes or discontinuous polygons2
Creating polygon with islands, holes, or discontinuous polygons

  • Select the group and then; MAPPOLYLINETOPOLYGON


Looking back and moving along
Looking back and moving along polygons

  • Assign current coordinate system (ADESETCRDSYS)

  • The exported features need to be closed polygons (PROPERTIES)

  • If there are areas within the permit boundary that are not permitted then they need to be excluded (PROXYGRAPHICS, GROUP, and MAPPOLYLINETOPOLYGON)

  • Attributes need to be assigned. Use template or create object data table?

  • We will look at creating a new one first.


Adedefdata
ADEDEFDATA polygons

  • So, we need to end up with a table that looks like this within GIS software..

NEED THESE 7 FIELDS


Define object data
Define Object Data polygons

  • Command ADEDEFDATA


Adedefdata1
ADEDEFDATA polygons

Table name is up to you


Adedefdata2
ADEDEFDATA polygons

Table name is up to you

NEED THESE 7 FIELDS


Adeattachdata
ADEATTACHDATA polygons

  • Now that we have the object table’s fields it’s time to select the objects and attach the table


Adeeditdata
ADEEDITDATA polygons

  • At least two ways to edit object data, to add permit information.


Adeeditdata1
ADEEDITDATA polygons

  • Select all of the objects that will be attributed


Adeditdata
ADEDITDATA polygons

In the value box type in the appropriate information for each field that applies.


Second method is to use the polygonsPROPERTIES command.

Select object and type in values.

This is a good way to attribute many objects at one time!


Add object data. polygons

Hit the enter key

after each update


Ram 148
RAM 148- polygons


Mapexport
MAPEXPORT polygons

  • Now that we have attributed the objects it’s time to export them out as a shapefile..


ESRI Shapefile (*.shp) polygons

  • 1st name it correctly;

    • example (8605607_NW or 8605607_AM_3) and .shp extension


Mapexport1
MAPEXPORT polygons

  • 2st choose polygon


Mapexport2
MAPEXPORT polygons

In the Data tab choose Object Data


NAD 83 Kentucky Single Zone US Feet polygons

  • 3rd Coordinate conversion if necessary. Type in KY83F if not already in KY83F.

  • 4th Treat closed polylines as polygons? May be useful to your business needs.

Add your shapefile polygons

data here


Right mouse click polygons

for “Properties”


Mouse click on map polygons

to open table


Using a template with the object table
Using a template with the object table polygons

  • Open map template

  • Use INSERT command to add your drawing

  • Use “locate using Geographic Data” option


Attach object data supplied with the template
Attach Object Data (supplied with the template) polygons

  • Use ADEATTACHDATA command

  • Select objects to attach
