TCPD has many ‘sector layouts’ (Local Plans) in AutoCAD format. It is envisaged, to convert all these drawings to geographically referenced data at LUPMIS, which can be correlated and linked to other GIS data. Three different approaches (through Be aware, that most AutoCAD files are not georeferenced and have incomplete topology (for example, lines are not snapped, polygons still to be converted from lines, etc). Additional editing work is required to make use of those in the GIS. has to be installed in your computer. It is available on the LUPMIS installation file and resides, after LUPMIS installation, in your folder LUPMISGISUtilities. If there is more than 1 layer in your drawing file, you can select, which layer should be converted to DRA file. The import runs as: If the source file is in War Office (feet or meter), you have to convert it to UTM 30. First, check if it is in feet or meter: Display the converted file from step 2, measure a known distance and see if it approximately the same as in UTM. If the distance in the converted file is roughly 3 times as much, it is WarOffice >, OK >, Select file from previous step >, Open >, Choose target map projection: UTM30 >, OK >, Enter name for new file >, Save 1. Convert DWG file to SHP with a utility program, which is available at the Internet or from TCPD-HQ / LUPMIS either as freeware or shareware for a small fee. Contact HQ for the latest support (email below). At Map Maker, load the converted DRA file, and have a look at the lines/polygons. You might have to copy it to live layer, and edit, i.e. snap lines, delete lines etc. on georeferencing the map. In most cases, it will be sufficient to have two reference points, of which the coordinates are known. Like any other converted data, also drawing files have to be quality-checked. Overlay known correct features to the map, such as GPS-tracked roads. Source.
