Delete Points in Polygons (DelPoi)

Type: Batch Application

 

Deletes or changes layers of points (symbols and text entities and VrPoints (LiDAR)) that are inside polygons.

Detailed Description

Searches polygons in user-defined layers and deletes points that fall inside the polygons. Points may be symbols, text labels, and VrPoints (LiDAR).  Points may be deleted or moved to another layer.

 

Layers that are turned off will not be considered even if specified. Delete Points in Polygons is undoable.

DeletePointsInPolygons_image006

Workspaces mode

Defines the workspace compare mode.

Do not compare between workspaces

Points are only be compared against polygons in the same workspace.

Compare between workspaces

Points are compared to polygons in other workspaces.

Workspaces to consider

Defines the workspaces to consider. If workspaces mode is set to “Do not compare…”, this option is displayed, and applies to points and polygons.

Workspaces to consider for points

Defines the workspaces to consider for points (symbols and text). If workspaces mode is set to “Compare between…”, this options is displayed. This allows the workspaces to consider for points to be set separately from the workspaces to consider for polygons. For example, the user may want to only search the current workspace for points, but compare the points to polygons in all open workspaces.

Workspaces to consider for polygons

Defines the workspaces to consider for polygons. If workspaces mode is set to “Compare between…”, this options is displayed. This allows the workspaces to consider for polygons to be set separately from the workspaces to consider for points. For example, the user may want to only search the current workspace for points, but compare the points to polygons in all open workspaces.

Include open lines

Determines if open lines should be treated as polygons.

Yes

Open lines are considered polygons by assuming a closing segment between the last and first points.

No

Only existing polygons (closed lines) are considered.

Polygon layers

Defines the polygon layers against which to check points. This may be entered as a number line. If left blank, all layers are considered. Layers that are turned off are not considered even if specified.

Symbol layers

Defines the layers in which to search for symbols inside the polygons. This may be entered as a number line. If left blank, all layers are considered. Layers that are turned off are not considered even if specified.

Text layers

Defines the layers in which to search for text inside the polygons. This may be entered as a number line. If left blank, all layers are considered. Layers that are turned off are not considered even if specified.

Polygon graphic pointers

Defines the polygon graphic pointers against which to check points. This may be entered as a number line. If left blank, lines with any graphic pointer are considered.

Symbol graphic pointers

Defines the symbol graphic pointers against which to check the polygons. This may be entered as a number line. If left blank, symbols with any graphic pointers are considered.

Change mode for symbols

Defines the action to take on symbols that fall within the polygons.

Delete

Delete the symbols.

Move to target layer

Move the symbols to the target layer as defined by “Target Layer for Symbols” and “Target layer mode for Symbols”.

Target layer mode for symbols

Determines how the target layer for symbols is used when “Change mode for symbols” is set to “Move to target layer”.

=

The symbol layer is changed to the “Target layer for symbols”.

+

The “Target layer for symbols” is added to the existing symbol layer to compute a final target layer for the symbol. The symbol layer is changed to the computed target layer.

Target layer for symbols

If the Change mode for symbols is set to “Move to target layer”, this parameter defines the layer to which to move symbols. The Target layer mode for symbols determines how this number is used to determine the final target layer.

Change mode for text

Defines the action to take on text that falls within the polygons.

Delete

Delete the text.

Move to target layer

Move the text to the target layer as defined by “Target Layer for Text” and “Target layer mode for Text”.

Target layer mode for text

Determines how the target layer for text is used when “Change mode for text” is set to “Move to target layer”.

=

The text layer is changed to the “Target layer for text”.

+

The “Target layer for text” is added to the existing text layer to compute a final target layer for the symbol. The text layer is changed to the computed target layer.

Target layer for text

If the Change mode for text is set to “Move to target layer” this parameter defines the layer to which to move text. The Target layer mode for text determines how this number is used to determine the final target layer.

Change mode for points

Defines the action to take on points (LiDAR) that falls within the polygons.

Delete

Delete the points.

Move to target layer

Move the points to the target layer as defined by “Target Layer for points and “Target layer mode for points.

Target layer mode for points

Determines how the target layer for points (LiDAR) is used when “Change mode for points” is set to “Move to target layer”.

=

The points layer is changed to the “Target layer for points”.

+

The “Target layer for points” is added to the existing points layer to compute a final target layer for the symbol. The points layer is changed to the computed target layer.

Target layer for points

If the Change mode for points (LiDAR) is set to “Move to target layer” this parameter defines the layer to move points to. The Target layer mode for points determines how this number is used to determine the final target layer.
