Much of the time you spend running TPC will be spent in the Traverse View. It manages one traverse at a time. You can enter, edit or recall points, change data entry formats, view and print the traverse and a lot more.
To select a traverse from the Traverses Manager, highlight the traverse name with the up and down arrow keys and press [Enter] or double click the left mouse button on the traverse you want. The Traverse View will display the traverse that was highlighted in the Traverses Manager.
The Traverse View displays traverse data based on the Traverse View format. The format determines the sequence of the columns in the Traverse View.
Choose View | Format View | Advanced to see the advanced options you can use to format a traverse.
As a rule, stations are computed based on horizontal distance. However, if you want, TPC can compute them based on slope distances.
By default, the Traverse View displays gird distances but you can also display ground distances or distances based on any other appropriate scale factor.
In a drawing, each traverse controls the scale it uses to display distances on survey lines in a similar way in the Advanced tab of the Traverse Settings.
If you have selected a distance factor other than 1.000000000, TPC displays the current distance factor as DF=x.xxxxx in the status bar when you select a distance related column in the Traverse View.
