Survey data can be imported in .csv file format into SCENE with FILE < IMPORT. SCENE will ask for which scans folder this data shall be used, or whether it should be used on the workspace level. When importing survey data, please note that SCENE uses a right-handed coordinate system. In the selected location, you'll get a folder called References, which contains a separate object for each survey point with the name and coordinates from the survey file.
Each row of the file contains one single reference point with the following specifications: name, x coordinate, y coordinate, z coordinate and measurement quality. All four specifications have to be given and have to be separated by the same separator, which can be a blank space, a colon, a semicolon or a tab. The coordinates are specified in the unit that has been defined in TOOLS < OPTIONS < UNITS. Please note that SCENE uses a right-handed coordinate system and you will need at least three surveyed points.
