Join Eric Chappell for an in-depth discussion in this video Configuring coordinate systems and units, part of InfraWorks 2017 Essential Training.
- At some point early in the creation of your model,…you want to set things up…with the correct units and coordinate system.…Let's take a look at how that's done.…I'm in to Chapter 2, Lynda Heights model…and I'm in a proposal called Terrain.…If you haven't completed the steps from the previous video,…the area that's being shown in your imagery may be…quite a bit larger than what you're seeing on my screen.…I suggest that you actually go back and complete that video…if you haven't already.…
Unfortunately, there's no way to save that change.…You actually have to go in and do it…to reduce the model extent…down to the area that I have here.…But in this video, we're interested in talking…about units and coordinate systems.…Right now, we haven't really addressed that in this model…and it's a good time now that we've got…a little bit of data in the model…to get this set up properly.…The first thing we'll look at is units.…Actually, the units in the coordinate system…are handled in two different places.…
