Adding a vector .DWG file as a data source:
vGIS currently supports DWG and DXF vector line formats. To add a native vector line file:
- Select 'DWG and DXF (Vector Lines)' from the Type drop-down box.
- Press the Select Native GIS button.
- Choose the BIM file data source from the file browser (max recommended model size is 40Mb).
- Press the Save button to continue.
You will receive a message at the bottom of your screen notifying you that your data source was created.
You should now be able to locate this data source on the Data Sources page.
Note: Please allow for 10-15 minutes to pass before synchronizing the structure of the data source. The system will need to 'pre-process' the uploaded file before it can create an index. You will receive an 'internal server error' if sync takes place before pre-processing is done. If this is the case, wait 5 more minutes and try again.
