TSS MDL Annotation Tools


The following is a list with brief description of MDL tools from TUKAY ASSOCIATES:




TSSASTOF.MA TSS Automatic STation and Offset annotation

An application designed to calculate the Station and Offset of any valid DGN file element relative to a user selectable and defined baseline element. User has the option to identify which element type to annotate with Station and Offset text.

TSSCLCAL.MA TSS CelL CAlL utility

An application designed to place text string calls for any cells contained within a fence (active or reference file) at the current cell origin based on an ASCII file parameter table. Alternately, operator has the option to place cells containing any valid MS elements. A typical application of the later is placement of cell with Manhole Rim, Invert elevation edit fields to be filled by operator.

TSSGRADE.MA TSS GRADE call

An application designed to facilitate annotation of grade of any element in profile (paving job, for example). User may optionally place text (with a prefix and leader) for a typical paving project call.

TSSMAREA.MA TSS Measure AREA

An application designed to calculate the area, perimeter and centroid of closed line-string or shape elements with an option to place measured parameter in the active file (with or without leader). The user can modify the area's units of measure (Acres, Square Yards, Square Feet, or User-defined factor and suffix, etc.).

TSSMGRDE.MA TSS Multi-GRaDE call

An application designed to facilitate annotation of grade or slope of selected linear elements in profile (paving job, for example). Grade/Slope text with any user defined Prefix will be placed at the mid-point of and parallel to component linear segment.

TSSMRKPI.MA TSS line-string MaRK PI

A utility designed to highlight linear elements' vertices by placing active point element, user-defined text, cell, or coordinates at vertices of the selected line-string.

TSSPROEL.MA TSS PROfile ELevation annotation

An application designed to facilitate Elevation annotations in a Profile type DGN file by taking into account profile exaggeration and/or user defined Auxiliary Coordinate System (ASC).

TSSPSTEL.MA TSS Profile STation ELevation

A utility program designed to generate elevations at user defined stations or at a constant increment with the capability of placing station/elevation text in the active file or saving it to an ASCII file for use in other programs. A typical application would be to generate elevations at given roadway stations from a representation of a floodplain.

TSSRCLCL.MA TSS Radial CelL CalL

An extension of TSSCLCAL application which is designed to place text-string calls for any cell contained within a fence (in the active or reference file) at the current cell origin or radial to a selected alignment element based on an ASCII file parameter table. In lieu of text-string, the operator has the option to place cells containing any valid MS elements.

TSSSTAEQ.MA TSS STAtion EQuation

An application to establish Station Equation between two alignment (baseline) elements with the option of placing results in active file or save to an ASCII file for further processing.

TSSSTALN.MA TSS STation ALigNment

An application designed to automate placement of stationing tickmarks and text along baseline alignment element. User can select from three pre-defined stationing text formats and two pre-defined text orientations (tangent and perpendicular). Stationing interval is user defined in addition to text and tickmark symbology and settings.

TSSSTOF.MA TSS STation and OFfset

An application designed to calculate the Station and Offset of any point in the design file relative to a user selectable baseline element. User has the option of placing leadered or non-leadered Sta., Offset text in the active file.

TSSXYZ.MA TSS XYZ coordinates

A utility program designed to place leadered coordinates text for any point in the active design file. The operator has the option to place X&Y, XY&Z, Northing/Easting, Northing/Easting&Elevation, or Elevation only.
