You have calculated stockpile volumes or a volume difference between 2 drone surveys and now you want to export this information in order to create a volume report.
This article explains 3 methods to export your volume information in another format.
- Export all volumes to a .csv file for stockpiles
- Export all volumes to a .shp file for stockpiles + create another map
- Copy each volume calculation to the clipboard for volume difference in earthworks
Exporting volumes as .csv file
- Check the volume items in the project view that you want to export.
- Go to EXPORT tab
- In the Volume group, select .csv in the Format box
- Click Export Volume
Select the name and the location for your text file, for example volumes.csv.
Once completed you can open the file with the volume information in Notepad, Excel etc.
Tip:In order to work fast, you can select all items in your project. Items that don't contain a volume calculation will not be exported and will not affect your export.
Export volumes to a .shp file
Hint: Use this procedure if you want to create a map with volume annotations in a software like QGIS.
- This process works the same as Export Volume to .csv
- But in the Volume group, select .shp in the Format box before clicking on Export Volume
- This will export the outline of the pile with the volume information in the attribute table.
Copy each volume calculation to the clipboard
Hint: Use this procedure if you have only one or a few volumes that you need to export. Typically, this would be a volume difference for your earthworks project.
- Select the volume item (only one) which you want to export.
- The volume information will be displayed in the Volume Info box located in the lower left corner of your screen.
- Click on the clipboard iconin the top right corner of the Volume Information box.
- The volume information is copied to the clipboard.
- You can paste (Ctrl+V) the information in a text editor.
- You can repeat the same steps for each surface for which you want to export the volume.
