Although the tutorial is based around a DXF file, you do not need a DXF to use the tap map; all of the functionality discussed below can be accessed in any survey job with measured points & lines. \tThis tutorial can be completed on a CS10\/15, TS15 or PC simulator, no instrument connection is required. \tThere are two different methods of using DXF data into your survey job: \tImporting all points and lines onto the survey database at once, through \u2018Jobs & Data\u2019 -> \u2018Import Data\u2019 -> \u2018Import DXF data\u2019. Using this method will convert the dxf points & lines into the Leica job database. If the DXF file is quite large, this method can make the controller run slower than usual. \tAttaching the DXF as background layer(s) and then importing points & lines to the survey database as required. This is preferable in most cases as it allows CAD layer control, reduces the load on the memory, and leads to less \u2018clutter\u2019 in the survey database. This method is covered in this tutorial. Using Tap-Map & DXF Files\u00a0Tutorial Set up Job and Attach DXF \tDownload the dxf from the following link Dropbox link: https:\/\/www.dropbox.com\/s\/dgugel0gwtqc9po\/dxf%20tutorial.dxf. As with any non-Leica data file, this needs to be placed within the DATA directory on the USB stick or SD card. \tCreate a new job within SmartWorx Viva. To do this go to \u2018Jobs & Data\u2019 -> \u2018New Job\u2019, enter the job name, then select the tab \u2018CAD files\u2019. \tSelect the applicable dxf (\u2018dxf tutorial\u2019 in this example), press \u2018F4.Attach\u2019, and then \u2018F1.Store\u2019 to attach the file to the current job. \u00a0(This will create a Leica version of the dxf which is accessible in SmartWorx). \tWhen back in the main menu, press \u2018F6.Map\u2019, and then zoom to fit \u00a0. You should now see the attached DXF in the background of the job. This DXF will now appear in the map screen of any SmartWorx application. Tap-Map Navigation & Display Options \tYou\u2019ll notice that there is some information on the screen (in this case, some text layers containing identifiers and elevations) which are not relevant at the moment. In order to reduce clutter, we can turn different CAD layers off. To access layer control, press FN, then F4.\u2019Layrs\u2019. Using the F5.\u2019State\u2019 key, you can toggle the layers to be visible, hidden or selectable. \u2018Visible\u2019 is useful for showing information to help the surveyor establish where they are within the job, without accidentally selecting features from that layer. In this example, we will hide DEFAULT, ELEVATION, IDENTIFIER and SYMBOL, as these were created as text layers when the drawing was created. Select \u2018Store\u2019 to confirm the layer selection.\u00a0 \tThere are two ways to navigate within the tap-map, using the keyboard and using the screen commands. On the right hand side of the screen, select the \u00a0\u2018zoom to fit\u2019, \u00a0\u2018zoom in\u2019, \u00a0\u2018zoom out\u2019, \u00a0\u2018window zoom\u2019 & \u00a0\u00a0to centre to a selected point or current position. These view functions also can be triggered on the keyboard using the 1, 2, 3 or 5 keys. To pan the view, press the stylus on the screen and drag across. \tYou can also customize the map to display point IDs, elevations and other information. Press FN, then F2.\u2019Config\u2019 to look through the settings in the \u2018General\u2019, \u2018Points\u2019, \u2018Lines & Areas\u2019 tabs to see what can be displayed. Keep in mind that points need to be imported (this is covered in the next section) for most of this information to be displayed. Importing & Using Points and Lines from the DXF \tSince the DXF has been attached to an empty job, you\u2019ll notice that there are no points, lines, or areas in the data screen to use with the SmartWorx applications. You can press \u00a0in the upper part of the screen to access the point database at anytime. \tFirstly, configure the tap map import settings to your specifications. Press FN then F2.\u2019Config\u2019, and then select the \u2018CAD import\u2019 tab. The prefixes can be adjusted to suit the numbering requirements of the job. The other important setting is the \u2018create points at vertices of lines\u2019 - This will, on import of any line, create points at the vertices, which make it very convenient to stake the start of, the end of lines, and vertices in polylines. \tThere are two ways of importing points using the tap-map: \tPress down the stylus on the feature for one second to bring up the action box, and then select \u2018Import\u2019. \tTap several features on the map, and then hold down the stylus anywhere on the screen to bring up the action box, and then select \u2018Import\u2019. You can also use the \u2018box select function\u2019 which is in the second level of the \u2018view\u2019 toolbar, accessible through the \u00a0button. A feature highlighted in red means that it is currently selected. To deselect features, just tap the feature again. To unselect all features, hold down the stylus on the screen, and then select \u2018clear selected objects\u2019. If you select a region of the screen where there are multiple features (for example the electrical service in the corner of the lot), a dialog box will appear. This shows all features within the proximity of the selection. You can toggle the selection on\/off for each feature by pressing F6.\u2019Select\u2019 then F4.\u2019OK\u2019 to confirm. \tNavigate to the upper left side of the subdivision, and import the green survey control point \u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0. Notice that after the point is imported it becomes a standard Leica control point\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0 and a point ID appears. This means that the point is now in the SmartWorx point database and can be used in any application. \tRepeat the process, but this time select multiple points and lines & import them into the survey database. \tThe process of importing points and lines can be completed automatically if the feature is to be used in a SmartWorx application, for example \u2018reference line\u2019 or \u2018point stakeout\u2019. \tNavigate to the upper right side of the subdivision, and then hold down the stylus on the control point until the action box appears. Select from the following options on the point: \tTurn to point (TPS only) \u2013 will turn the Total station to the point \tCheck point (TPS only) \u2013 will import the point automatically, then turn the instrument to take a check shot on that point to check residuals \tStake point (TPS and GPS) \u2013 will import the point automatically, and then enter the stakeout application to stake out the point. \tHold the stylus down on a property line near the survey mark. The following action box will appear. You can import this line directly into the \u2018reference line\u2019 or \u2018roads\u2019 applications, ready for measuring, staking or slope staking. For example, select \u2018Stake line\u2019, enter the distance and offset along the line you need to stake, and then press OK to enter the familiar line stakeout screen. To return to the tap-map at anytime, press FN then F6.\u2019Quit\u2019. COGO within the Tap-Map The tap-map allows for the following COGO functions to be executed on points using the map screen. Work through the following examples: If there are no values displayed, you\u2019ll need to make sure COGO is configured to show \u2018grid\u2019 distances. This can be configured using the FN F2.\u2019Config\u2019 button. \tTraverse \u2013 Select one of the control points at the bottom of the job, then hold down the stylus on the screen and select \u2018Bearing & dist from pt\u2019. This will take you to the \u2018traverse input\u2019 screen, where you can specify the direction, distance and offset of the new point. Enter in the values from the screenshot below, then press F1.\u2018Calc\u2019 to calculate the coordinates of the new point, and then F1.\u2018Store\u2019 to create the new point in the map. \tSegment line \u2013 This function will create a number of points on-line between two existing points. Select the same two control points then hold down the stylus on the map, and then select \u2018segment line\u2019. Press ok to confirm the two selected points, and then in the following screen select the method for creating the points. \u2018No. of segments\u2019 will divide the line into points at an equal distance apart based on the number of segments. \u2018Segment length\u2019 will create points along the line at a defined interval distance. Set the segment length to 5m and set the starting point ID to 1000 (this will begin incrementing the new point numbers from 1000). Tap \u2018Calc\u2019 then OK to create the new points. Creating, Editing, Coding & Deleting objects \tPress and hold the stylus in an empty region of the screen, then select \u2018create point here\u2019 from the action box, then press OK to store. This will create a new point in the space on the map. \tSelect the point, then select \u2018edit point\u2019 from the action box, you can change the coordinates of the point, add or edit a code & attributes and also add an image to the point with the CS internal camera. Tap \u2018store\u2019 to save the edits. \tFollow the same process with a line or arc; select two or more points, hold down the stylus then select \u2018create line\u2019, \u2018create arc\u2019 (when three points are selected), or \u2018create area\u2019. \tSelect the created feature, then hold down the stylus, and then select \u2018edit\u2019 from the action box to view the properties of the feature or change the coding & display of the feature. This is also a handy way to view areas of polygons and lengths of lines on the fly. \tSelect some points and lines, then hold down on the stylus to bring up the action box, and then select \u2018delete\u2019. This will not only delete the selected features from the map, but also the survey database\u2026 so use with caution. That\u2019s the end of the tutorial. Try using the tap-map and its features in your next survey job to see how efficient and easy it is to survey with Leica SmartWorx Viva. Questions or Suggestions?
