As-built data (="positionally accurate" documentation) are usually captured at a scale of 1:500 (or smaller).
For reasons of visibility, bundles of pipelines are spread out (and thus no longer exactly in the correct position).
In densely built-up areas (city centers), the available space in the street / corridor area is often no longer sufficient to be able to draw everything there at the normal recording scale.
For this reason, the detection scale is reduced again in such areas.
The usual additional scales for 1:500 plans are:
How to scale?
The capture scale is set on the "UT Object Geometry" toolbar in a selection list.
Dynamically via the view (TOC) are scaled:
- the size of symbols (point features)
- the line width and line patterns
By changing the REFSCALE attribute value, the scaling can also be subsequently changed here on individual features of these classes.
For this purpose, the symbology in the layers must be parameterized accordingly:
- Line width / pattern: provide a separate layer for each capture scale - or live with suitable intermediate values and thus reduce the number of layers (performance!).
- Symbol size: control via "Advanced ... Size".
Through the UT creation functions are created in calculated size:
- Spacing for parallel pipes (multiple pipes)
- lateral pipe projection width of protective pipes
- text height of inscriptions
These features do not change automatically/subsequently when REFSCALE is changed.
In addition, NO scaling or resizing takes place with other features.
Additional definitions must be made for the scaling of dimensions.
