Figured what the heck after receiving so much help...

I'm in construction layout, so definitely not a 'surveyor'. But using and understanding surveying equipment is an important part of my role and hence the drive to increase my knowledge in the area. Right now I work on concrete high rises. It's not for everyone but the views are hard to beat when you near completion.

I don't know much about survey hardware software but I know quite a bit about AutoCAD. I also do custom LISP and a bit of .NET (helpful for processing points, but I think most survey software does that anyways). Over the last few years I've tried out AutoCAD clones in an attempt to save money. If anyone has any questions pertaining to the perils of that adventure ask away; that along with anything mentioned above would be an area where I'd be able to contribute something back towards this community.

Note that the building in the second picture isn't a project I worked on, but rather of a view from a project I worked on 😉 .

Seeing a three-story building in my neighborhood is rare, let alone anything in your pictures.

Thanks everyone!

Seeing a three-story building in my neighborhood is rare, let alone anything in your pictures.

This area in Vancouver is kind of unique in that they have protected various heritage homes. So you'll have these big modern high rises but within 5 minutes walk you're in an entirely different neighbourhood surrounded by mostly low rises: 3/4 storey apartments and the heritage homes described. Hopefully they work on preserving that to some degree.

Well since you offered your lisp skills...

Can I get a lsp that changes the selected object into a specific layer (I would edit this) and then also

send this item to the back.

I use cd3 2016

I would use this for short cutoff distances on my maps that don't need a visible line

Thank you

PS I'm certainly will to pay for this
