The next example demonstrates how to display several traverses on the same map and adjust the positions of the traverses with respect to each other.

Note: See Getting Started section for file install folders (<SurveyMap> and <Defaults and Layouts>)

  1. File | Open <SurveyMap>\Adjust\

  1. Maximize the window by clicking the maximize button on the top right of the traverse document window. Map | Add/Remove button, the Map traverses dialogue box, shown in below will appear.

Note: The same map can be also be created by selecting menu File | New, choosing Map Document, and then selecting the four traverses block1.tr1, spur.tr1, join.tr1 and main.tr1 with the mouse, while holding the <Control> key.
