Mapcheck Report in 2008

I told my coworker I was going to post on something else, but I found this new feature too cool to pass up and solves the problem he was having exporting a mapcheck report for multiple parcels. This post is mainly borrowed from the tutorials document on the Autodesk website.

Exercise 3: Exporting Parcel Data

In this exercise, you will generate a mapcheck report for the parcels in the residential road at the top right of the drawing.

In AutoCAD Civil 3D you can export inverse or mapcheck reports for either a single parcel, a series of parcels, or all parcels in a site.

For more information, see the AutoCAD Civil 3D Help topic Exporting a Parcel Inverse or Mapcheck Report.

To export parcel data

On the Toolspace Prospector tab, expand Sites Site 1 Parcels.

In the list view below the Prospector tree, click the heading of the Number column to sort the parcels by number.

  • Select parcels that you need a report for. You can use any of the standard windows methods to select and deselect the parcels.

    In the list view, right-click and select Export Analysis.

  • In the Export Parcel Analysis dialog box, specify the following settings:
    • Destination File: Place it in a place and with a name you can remember the tutorial uses a txt file like this: ExportAnalysis.txt
    • Analysis Type: Mapcheck Analysis
  • Click OK.

The ExportAnalysis.txt file automatically opens in the text editor associated with AutoCAD Civil 3D and is saved in the location you specified in step 5.

No more copying and pasting for each parcel or exporting into another program to get the reports, unless of course you need it in another format.

thank you for the info. I was recently asked to turn out a closure sheet and the info you provided showed the proper way to do it.

Thanks again.
