A while ago an implementation of vdPCADdesign for entering revision drawings for sewer-house connections was delivered. Main sewer functionality has recently been added.
The starting point is to increase the main sewerage system in AutoCAD with which design/revision drawings can be made. The AutoCAD polylines and blocks are provided with additional information allowing an export to GML-files. These files form input for the BOR system in which, among other things. the sewage system of the entire municipality is managed.
vdPCADdesign has a simple user interface; an AutoCAD ribbon and some dialogs.
When adding new sewer features, the properties must first be entered/selected in accordance with the datamodel, some of which are mandatory. Then the user can – as usual with a polyline – create the geometry. When closing the polyline, the pipe is drawn, on the correct NLCS-layer, with color and linetype. The Xdata-information is linked to it and a label is created. These labels “stick” to the pipes and when the location of the pipe is adjusted with regular AutoCAD functionality; grip edit, insert vertex etc. the labels are also adjusted.
There is a function to get an overview in table format of the different features. Similar to the AutoCAD Map datatable. It is also possible to export this table to Excel.
vdPCADdesign is a C#.NET utility and available for various AutoCAD-versions.
Various PDOK functions are implemented by vdPConsulting in projects. Think of searching for a location in which a location on the map is jumped to on the basis of a street name and place. Or reading BGT/IMGeo information with a spatial filter within a project polygon.
GDAL/OGR functions are used to read GIS files in GML, GeoJSON, GeoPackage and ESRI Shape format.
DAL is a C++ translator library for more than 200 raster and vector geospatial data formats. It offers an API for a variety of languages such as C, C++, Python, Perl, C# and Java.
These functions have now been merged into a handy utility: vdPGeo.
vdPGeo is a C#.NET utility and available for various AutoCAD-versions.
