Add and edit Referenced CSDs

Review, add or edit the Referenced CSDs.


  • See the cadastral survey guidelines for the survey
  • When you import an XML file, the Referenced CSDs will be added and automatically allocated (although you will likely need to do more to complete the survey capture).
  • If you are applying bearing corrections to vectors from a referenced survey, enter these in the Bearing correction field.

What to do

  1. Select the Survey details icon from the left-hand workflow control bar.

    • If you imported an XML file, the CSD references used in your dataset will have been automatically added.
    • Note: The CSD ref cannot be changed. If a CSD reference is incorrect, it will need to be removed and the correct CSD reference added.
  4. To remove a Referenced CSD, highlight the row you want to remove
