I am working with a GPS system (Magnetfield system) that cannot easily export the data collected into a shapefile - it creates an individual shapefile for each point taken rather than exporting the entire job.
So, we usually export to DWG format. This creates a headache on the GIS side of things. When I try to convert the DWG to shapefile - the points collected are in one layer and the names of the points and point numbers are in the annotation layer.
Is there a way to easily add the codes and point numbers into the point layer attribute table. I don't want to have to go into the data - identify each point and create a new field and fill in each and every one, this is a big job with lots of points collected.
This seemed a lot easier when I was working with Trimble units.
I have messed around with our GPS unit and there doesn't seem to be a simple way to just export the entire job to shapefile format.
