XYZ File Conversion Program

Version 1.0, 2006

A new tool has been developed specifically for the Survey Engineering Tools (SET) program but can also be used independently for other applications (e.g., Eagle Point). XYZ File Conversion is a program that will convert DNR Garmin files and other coordinate files to a coordinate format that can be read by SET. Not only will it convert formats, but it will also convert between units (i.e., English and metric). For example, if a coordinate file contains X and Y coordinates in English units and elevations in metric units the program can convert the elevations to English units.

To use this program, simply open a file with the XYZ File Conversion program and specify the type of output file desired. The program will convert the file based on the parameters specified.
