1. Basic Functions ^

 

There are eight different tabs on the project settings page. Each of them is presented individually below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Basic Settings ^

In this section, the user can alter the initialization settings and define default attributes and files for the project.

Coordinate System

In this subsection, the coordinate system is shown and can be altered.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The user can change the coordinate system by selecting a new system from the "Coordinate system" drop-down bar or inserting an EPSG code.

If the project's coordinate system uses grid correction, the datum transformation grid file can be selected from the "Datum transformation grid file" drop-down bar. The supported file format is SGF, and the file must be uploaded through the "Files" page.

If the user wants to add a local offset, the "northing (m)" and the "easting (m)" attributes can be altered.

The user can correct the coordinate systems with a seven-parameter transformation by inserting values in "7 parameters" value bars.

The user can test the coordinate conversion by clicking the "Test coordinate conversion" button. By clicking the "proj.4" button, the proj.4 string will be revealed.

 

 

Height System (Geoid)

In this subsection, the height system is shown and can be changed.

 

 

The user can change the project's height system by selecting the system from the "Height system (Geoid)" drop-down bar. New height systems can also be imported and selected from this bar. The imported file must be a GGF file, and the file must be uploaded through the "Files" page in a self-determined location. The active height system will affect the FIELD and SURVEY apps.

 

 

Cross Section

In this subsection, the default cross-section settings are shown and can be altered.

 

 

 

The user can determine the default width, Y scale, and Logpoint search displacement for the project's cross-section view by altering these values. By altering the "Width" value, the user can change the width of the view, and by altering the "Y scale", the height can be changed, which is scaled according to the width value. "Logpoint search displacement" determines the distance the log points will be shown according to the alignment.

 

 

Main Alignment

In this subsection, the active main alignment is shown and can be changed.

 

 

 

The user can change the main alignment for the project by selecting a new alignment from the "Select main alignment" drop-down bar. The drop-down box shows all the alignment files that have been uploaded through the "Files" page.

 

 

Base Drawing

In this box, the user can determine the name of the new group. After the name of the group has been inserted, the "+ Create group" button can be clicked. The new group will appear on the "Groups" tab.

 

If there were already existing groups, the group would appear at the top of the list. If there is a long list of groups, the "Filter" search bar can be used to filter the list by group name.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When a group is clicked as active, a window opens, which consists of two tabs "Users" and "Roles". From the "Users" tab, the user can add and remove users from the group, and from the "Roles" tab, the user can add and remove roles from the group.
