Changes for surveyors as part of Landonline release 3.21

Alternate Survey Number field added to Structured Text View of a Survey

Defect LOLCM-1165 (External)

Description

A field to display an ‘Alternate Survey Number’ (or prior reference) for a plan has been added to the ‘Structured Text View’ (STV) of a plan.

  • for both Internal and External users searching on Surveys, this will be a viewable field (in the STV of a plan)
  • the field is called ‘Alt Survey Number’

This Alt Survey Number is a former Survey Number.   Over time, LINZ will gradually add the Alternate Survey Number against the current Survey Number and these will be viewable in the Structured Text View of a Survey (where applicable). 

Action

External - Searches:
  • Search for a Survey Number (e.g. DP 5002 North Auckland)
  • Add this to the Searches Tree
  • Double Click on the Survey Number itself to open the Structured Text View (STV)
  • The ‘Alt Survey Number’ field displays
  • If an Alternate Survey Number has not been added by LINZ, then this field will be blank (no plans will display)

Turn on Underlying Marks Automatically When Performing Mark Linking

Enhancement LOLCM-1609 (Internal and External)

Description

When linking Captured Marks to corresponding underlying Landonline marks, in the CSC_S10-Spatial Display screen, the ‘Underlying Marks’ layer is required to be turned on manually first. 

When turned on, the ‘Underlying Marks’ layer displays below the captured marks making it difficult to see if there is a mark to link to or not.

This new functionality now makes it simpler and faster to link marks.

Action

  • Open the Spatial window at Capture
  • ‘Current Layers’ tab displays ‘Captured Marks’ at the top.  ‘Underlying Marks’ layer is further down the tab and not turned on (do not turn them on)
  • Captured data displays with the underlying boundaries (screen scale may need to be adjusted to see this view)

Without turning on the ‘Underlying Marks’ layer, the following options outline what to do to link marks:

Option 1 – Manually Link Marks Directly In the Spatial Window:
  • Check that the ‘Captured Marks’ layer is active (active by default)
  • In the Spatial window anywhere, right-click on the mouse (nothing has to be selected spatially) - recommended method
  • A drop down menu appears - select 'Link'

The following actions will occur automatically once ‘Link’ is selected in the window above:

  • Mouse cursor changes to the cross
  • The ‘Underlying Marks’ layer automatically turns on and moves to the top of the ‘Current Layers’ tab above the ‘Captured Marks’ layer
  • The ‘Captured Marks’ layer remains the active layer

Marks are now ready to be linked using the following steps:

  • Select the Captured mark spatially
  • Move mouse away to reveal the linking line
  • Double click on the corresponding Underlying Mark to complete linking that mark

Repeat the above three bullet points until all marks are linked to corresponding Underlying Marks.

Mark Linking will remain the focus in the Spatial window until this action is changed e.g. Zoom In, Pan etc.

If the action of linking is changed and mark linking is required to be done again, simply right click in the Spatial window and select ‘Link’ and repeat the last three steps above.

Option 2 – Manually link marks from the Capture drop down menu:
  • Select Capture|Link Marks|Manual

The following actions will occur automatically once ‘Manual’ is selected in the window above:

  • Mouse cursor changes to the cross
  • The ‘Underlying Marks’ layer automatically turns on and moves to the top of the ‘Current Layers’ tab above the ‘Captured Marks’ layer
  • The ‘Captured Marks’ layer remains the active layer

Marks are now ready to be linked using the following steps:

  1. Select the Captured mark spatially
  2. Move mouse away to reveal the linking line
  3. Double click on the corresponding Underlying Mark to complete linking that mark

Repeat the above steps until all marks are linked to corresponding Underlying Marks.

Mark Linking will remain the focus in the Spatial window until this action is changed e.g. Zoom In, Pan etc.

If the action of linking is changed and mark linking is required to be done again, simply right click in the Spatial window and select ‘Link’ and repeat the last three steps above.

Option 3 – Automatically link marks from the Capture drop down menu:
  • Select Capture|Link Marks|Automatic
  • Select tolerance

The following actions will occur automatically once the appropriate tolerance is selected from the window above:

  • The system will automatically link those marks within the selected tolerance
  • The ‘Underlying Marks’ layer automatically turns on and moves to the top of the ‘Current Layers’ tab (so that they are visible below the captured marks)
  • The ‘Captured Marks’ layer remains the active layer
  • Message 15289 will appear reporting on the Automatic Mark Linking Results:
  • Select ‘OK’ to that message

Mark Linking will remain the focus in the Spatial window until this action is changed e.g. Zoom In, Pan etc.

If the action of linking is changed and mark linking is required to be done again from the drop down menu, simply repeat these actions in Option 3 or do the following:

  • Right-click on the spatial screen
  • Select ‘Link’
  • With the left mouse button select the Captured mark spatially
  • Move mouse away to reveal the linking line
  • With the left mouse button double click on the corresponding Underlying Mark to complete linking that mark
Option 4 – Current Functionality

Turn on Underlying Marks Layer and Leave it where it sits in the Current Layers:

  • Turn on the ‘Underlying Marks’ layer
  • Leave the layer where it sits in the Current Layers tab
  • In the Spatial window anywhere, Right click on the mouse (nothing has to be selected spatially) - recommended method
  • Select ‘Link’
  • The ‘Underlying Marks’ layer does not move to the top of the ‘Current Layers’ tab and this makes it harder to see if there are any corresponding marks to link captured marks to as they are drawn below the ‘Captured Marks’
  • In the diagram above, marks 29, 34 and 35 have underlying marks that need to be linked but its not clear that there are any as the ‘Underlying Marks’ layer is drawn up below the Capture Marks layer
  • Move the ‘Underlying Marks’ layer to the top of the ‘Current Layers’ tab (cancels linking)
  • In the Spatial window anywhere, Right click on the mouse(nothing has to be selected spatially) - recommended method
  • Select ‘Link’
  • Link the remaining marks
Note

It is recommended that you move the ‘Underlying Marks’ layer to the top of the ‘Current Layers’ tab if using Option 4, to avoid missing marks that should have been linked to corresponding Landonline marks.

To cancel linking just change an action by selecting a different icon e.g. pan, Zoom etc.

When Two Territorial Authorities are Entered, Only One Can Have Certificates Added

Defect LOLCM-1898 (External)

Description

Since the 3.20 release, when more than one Territorial Authority name was entered into the TA Name field in the TA Certifications tab, it was identified that TA certs could only be added to the northern most TA name entered.

Action

Certificates can now be attached to all TA Names entered into the TA Certifications Tab

  • Add TA names into the TA Certification tab
  • In the example below Dunedin City is added first followed by Waitaki District.  Dunedin City.  (Geographically Dunedin City is further south but is shown as it is entered for now in the TA Certifications tab)
  • Check the Certification Required checkbox for Dunedin City
  • Add Certificates

When the screen goes back to the CSL_S02 Manage Survey Transaction screen the TA names entered are now sorted geographically (north to south down the country) and Dunedin City is now correctly shown second in the list:

 

 

  • Certificates can now be added to the other TA entered
  • The TA Names remain listed geographically
