The n4ce code table is used to translate a coded survey into a well-structured meaningful plot. Before any survey data can be displayed as a drawing, the code table must be set up so that it correctly represents the data being brought into the system.
Do Not Upload: Codes with this selected will not be uploaded when the code table is exported.
On the left-hand side, we can see all of the codes that have been created. Each code has its own preset which allows n4ce's points to have "intelligence".
Report of the Codes within the Code Table. Select File > Report.
File: This section has many options such as Load, Save, Merge, Purge and Report.
Load: This allows you to import another n4ce code table.
Save: This allows you to export your own code table.
Merge: This allows you to combine multiple different code tables together.
Purge: This removes your unwanted codes.
Report: This creates a file with all of your current codes listed.
Export Trimble FXL: This is a new option within n4ce 4.20c that allows you to export the code table without using the Trimble Link Engine.
Multi-Selection: n4ce v4.20c and above now has the functionality to multi-select codes within the code table via Ctrl-clicking. This can be extremely useful when many different codes need to have the same style, setting or pen allocated with them.
Add: Introduce a new code into the code table.
Remove: Removes the selected code from the code table.
Clear: Removes all of the Codes from the code table.
Prefix: A shorted version of the description that is memorable. E.g. BB = Bottom of Bank.
Transfer: A different Codetable that another "company" may use which makes transferring or displaying work in a different format efficient.
Group: Within n4ce 4.40 and above we have added a new option that allows users to assign codes to groups. This only works with Trimble FXL and Leica XML exports.
Description: An explanation of the prefix/code. E.g. Bottom of Bank = BB.
None: From other system formats where the code contains the code prefix, comma code and dimensions if present. Spaces or other characters separate each field.
Dim Labels: This states that the first string is the code and that the second and subsequent strings represent comma codes and dimensions
No Dim Labels: This is very like the above except that the names of the dimensions are not stated. Instead, n4ce will assume a name of I1 for the first dimension, I2 for the second and so on.
GeoSite: Several users define codes in the field using the GeoSite format.
Auto Stringing: The Auto Stringing function will link points together with the same feature code and string number, in the order, they are found.
Multi-Code Septerator: This option allows you to change the code separator used when importing Multi-Codes into n4ce.
Code Groups: This option will open a new dialog in which you can create different groups e.g. Utilities / Vegetation. Once these are created you can assign them by using the Groups drop-down on the left-hand side of the code table. Note: These export to Trimble FXL and Leica XML.
Layers: The 'Check Exist' box and the 'Report' button have been designed to run a report displaying any incorrectly defined layers for all current codes.
Comma Codes: Select this link for more information.
Dimensions: Select this link for more information.
