Points of interest

Points of interest

Win64, English

Specify or import points from .shp or .csv files. Then review and edit the points in drawings or map the points to your own blocks.

General Usage Instructions

The Point of interest app comes with an assortment of blocks you can use or delete. If you want to use your own blocks and Block alias, you can add a category on the settings palette and then add the blocks on the blocks palette using this category. You can choose your own Block alias. This alias is used in this app only.

When this is set-up you use the import points palette to import points. You can either click in the drawing where you want it or import a shape or file. I make these shape files with the online application streetsmart from cyclomedia. In their settings, you have the option to add a field so you can specify which block to use. After importing the points you can edit them on the points palette.
