Join Dustin Manning for an in-depth discussion in this video Balancing a traverse, part of AutoCAD Civil 3D: Topographic and Boundary Survey.
- [Instructor] Now that we have our boundary information…entered into the coordinate geometry editor,…we'll be able to balance the traverse.…In this example, we can see that we've started here…and observed each of these points in the field.…And there was an amount of error…when we observed the first point again,…so we want to be able to correct for this.…Back in the coordinate geometry editor,…so remember to type, "COGOEDITOR" on the command line,…press Enter, remembering here that once the…coordinate geometry editor is closed,…it's refreshed every time, so we'll go back…and load the file that we saved in the previous movie.…
Go to Open, navigate to our exercise files,…chapter four, 0407.trvx.…Once we open that, it does let us know that it can't find…the current point, so that's no problem.…We're going to get this set up for doing the…traverse balance.…Click OK.…The first thing we'll do is define our point of beginning.…And that's this point here.…And because we want this boundary to ultimately close…with little to no error, we want to use the same point…
