Use "attributes" to expand Automap (GIS style for drawing symbols)
Our Leica data collectors (and I suspect all modern collectors) have the ability to define multiple attributes for a line or point. Currently these attributes are not even imported when I bring in a DBX file.
An example: A code tree could have the following attributes:
Health with choice-list: (Dead, Nearly Dead, sick, good, excellent)
With the above data, I may choose to show all my trees with trunks and diameters drawn to scale with no annotation. Or I could colour-code by "health". Or I could add a text label with the species. Each attribute could be used to modify the symbol.
