Querying Survey Data

 
 
 

You can query a survey database for survey points and figures that meet specified criteria.

A survey query enables you to search a survey database for the survey points and figures that meet a specified series of conditions. A survey query is associated with and saved in a survey database. A survey query can query only the points and figures within its host database.

After a survey query has been executed, you can display the resulting survey points and figures in the drawing as a preview. You can make changes to the survey points and figures, and then save the changes back to the survey database.

A surface can be built from the results of a survey query. The results can be added to a surface definition either as static point groups and breaklines, or as a dynamic reference to the survey points and figures that are in the survey database.
