I have a CAD file with tree data I need to put into ArcMap. I need the species information of each tree point. When I open up the .dwg file in Autodesk TrueView 2018, all the necessary shows up as can be seen in this image:
When I import them into ArcMap as a .dwg file (without converting into a geodatabase format) I don't see the annotations (as can be seen in the following image). Also, these points ended up becoming one huge conjoined polyline rather than individual polylines or points, and there's no species attributes attached to the layer.
So I thought I just had to convert it with the "CAD to geodatabase" tool. However, when I did that what I got was different from the .dwg file, with 98% of my tree data missing except for a few random polygons here and there.
I am able to extract every tree point from that one conjoined polyline. What I'm having trouble with is getting the annotation over each tree point so that I can identify each tree.
