Terrain elevation lines from PDF map


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


My first post here. I want to read the terrain elevation data from a SOSI fil. This is the official (and only) file type the Norwegian Mapping Authority supports. Since Chief Architect doesn't read this file type, I need to convert this to DXF or DWG. But I have so far not succeeded.


Then I stumbled over a video that showed how to import a terrain map from pdf. It explained how to import, how to cut unnecessary areas, then resize it to the correct scale, set a North marker, and finally add the elevation to the lines on the drawing.


All very exciting ... but then I can't remember the URL of the video :(:(:(


Is there anybody that could point me in the right direction, either the video, or another tutorial that covers this? Many thanks in advance.

Here are two terrain video's that are hard to find :






If you can't convert the SOSI to .DWG it might be possible to get a .PDF and convert to .DWG or .DXF


If you have to work from PDF you will need to manually trace over it.
