Converting CRS When Importing an Arbline
When you are importing an arbline that uses a different CRS from the CRS you have defined for a project, Insight is able to convert it to the project CRS.
Import an arbline
- In the Control Panel, select the Import menu.
- Click Arblines.
- Select the arbline(s) that you want to load and click Open. The Coordinate Reference System conversion window will be displayed.
Select the type of coordinates
At Type of coordinates, select Eastings / Northings if the arbline is using the eastings/northings coordinates or Latitude / Longitude if it is using the latitude/longitude coordinates.
Convert arbline CRS to project CRS
- Click Convert from to select the eastings/northings or latitude/longitude CRS of the arbline from the standard CRS table and click OK. This is the original arbline CRS which will be converted to the project CRS. The CRS of the project is defined when you create a project (see Creating a Project).
- Click OK to process the conversion.
Note: If you are importing multiple arblines at the same time, the CRS will be applied to all the arblines.
