An archaeological point list Dxf import tool
Often archeological workers need to plot their finds in a CAD system. This can be quite tedious manually, but help is at hand with Pointor:
If the workers add in the point coordinates and descriptions one at a time while on site, Pointor can read that list and create a DXF file (with various layers and point-line connection options) which can then be read in by any CAD program. The image above shows how Pointor works with a CSV file (readable by Excel and OpenOffice Calc) but you can just as simply do a copy and paste of the data direct into Pointor's main window.
With version 6 there is even the option to add in separate point lists into the same DXF file, thus merging the results of two or more workers into a single graphical result.
Luckily there is a demo available which means you can test it on your own data to see if it meets your requirements. (If there is a format we do not handle please contact me.)
searched internet for Importing
XYZ points into Autocad and Pointor was on the list. I downloaded
the demo and found it was exactly the easy to use and time saving
tool I needed!"
