Creating an Automation Tool for Checking Data Integrity of CAD Files
Track: Highways and Roads
Authors: Dave McMillan
The approach to this problem was to develop a tool that can automatically check the digital survey-plat prior to approval. The tool that was developed for this solution was named County Automated Terrestrial CAD Helper (CATCH). CATCH is an ArcGIS geoprocessing tool written in Python. This tool created an automation script that reads the digitally submitted survey-plat and reports errors back to the industry professional Land Surveyor or Civil Engineer (applicant) who submitted the CAD file.
