    Default Global coordinate system batch conversion

    Is it possible in Map '10 to do a batch conversion of the coordinate system in a series of dwgs without needing to open them one at a time? One of my colleagues needs to convert a large number from State Plane to mine grid.

    Thanks,

    Ray

    Not very easy. You would need to create a script to open a blank file, attach a dwg then query in all, detach the queried dwg, save. Do the dwgs have a cs code assigned to them or were they just drawn in the georeference location?

    I'm not sure. He just asked if there were some way to convert more than one dwg at a time. I wll have to ask him the next time we talk.

    I hoped Map would have some easy way of doing it, but was not overly optimistic.

    Thanks for the input,
