I'm looking for a way to properly process .RAW traverse data from Nikon DTM on Copan 11.11. These points, after calculations and processing, will later be used as points in a thematic map and a .dwg file.
I kept getting an invalid at-station error when I try to plug in my data in the Calculation-Process Field Data UI window as follows:
Azimuths are reckoned from the South.
I also tried loading the sample data for 2D and 3D closed traverse computations from the Copan 11.11 manual (http://www.underhill.ca/software/manuals/windows/User%20Manual.pdf) pages 5 to 7. But they did not work either.
After three attempts of editing my raw input file to match the specified format on the manual, I still get an error that refuses to process my data from Nikon. I also have another Total Station raw data that I need to edit in an acceptable format for the field file portion of Copan because it is not organically supported by Copan (this other set of data is not taken from Leica or Nikon).
At this point, it might help to have a live sample of a pair of .pts file and field file in .raw, .f, .fld, or .txt format that I can load to Copan 11.11. I just need to see what a field file looks like so that I can pattern my current inputs accordingly and eliminate the errors such as "Invalid assertion", "Invalid at-station", "Invalid to-station", and "No Observation".
I already tried looking for sample raw data online that has been tested to work with Copan but I have not found any, so far.
My other option is to encode all my existing raw data manually or line per line using Copan's other options in the Calculation menu. But given the volume of the computations that I need to make under the deadline, it might not be a feasible option.
