My apologies but the functionality that was in ImportPoints does not appear to work any more. The "copy image" button is not activated when a geo-referenced image is loaded. I am working on a new version to fix this problem.

If you would explain to me exactly what you are trying to do then maybe I can still help you as well as guide me toward what features might be in the next version of ImportPoints.

Import points was designed to support DEMs encoded into a GeoTIFF. Then you can use the "clip data" button.

Hi,

Is the Geotiff import option available yet?

It is getting there. But... It will not work for the current version. It will be in for the next version. I figured out why it was broken for the current version and I am working on it. I am testing with sample data that I have found but if you have a file I could test with it would really help. I can try to get you something working before the next release.

You could try to Zip it, but it cant be bigger than 4 Mb
Else, you can upload to Dropbox or similar and give the link for it here.

Interesting picture but it does not appear to be terrain data.

I believe this is a Tiff I created in Agisoft Metashape.  I was hoping that turbocad civil could open geotiff

TurboCAD Civil supports a GeoTIFF files that contains a digital elevation model. This one is not that. You should be able to treat is any other image file. However it is large and only importpoints3 64bit can open it.

Is there a version of this that I could get (import points 3)

Do you have a digital elevation model DEM encoded into GeoTIFF?
GeoTIFFs are created differently with different creator applications so it would be good if I could test what you have first.
The new release should be out with version 2019 coming soon.

Hi,

A freeware GIS software QGIS, can accept Geotiff very easily, and place them in a model at the gps coordinates. Will the 2019 release have this feature. Something perhaps comparable to the import option in civil 3d.

Hi,

Will there be any tutorials all the way through the process to drawings?  I.e basic road etc

Logged

The real issue is the fact that you don't insert at a longitude/latitude location in a CAD application and TurboCAD is not QGIS. Longitude/latitude coordinates need to be transformed into Cartesian coordinates so distances make since.

I don't know what you mean by "basic road." An image is just pixel data and the GeoTIFF format gives you where the upper left corner of the image is as well as the size of a pixel. The tool will give you choices of the coordinate transforms you can use if the values in the file are longitude/longitude.

Sorry the last comment regarding roads were generally requesting some tutorials showing off turbocad civil capabilities.  I thought a start to finish design of a road with services etc. would be great for the user.  Im very much looking forward to using civil 2019

Hi,

is there a maximum size of geotiff?

Logged

Yes but I can't say what it is. 32bit applications will fail with files that are too large. For larger files use a 64bit version of the application. A large file that I have is over 200MB in size and I can not load it at all with TC 32bit but it will load with TC 64bit.

Will this file load in your 64 bit version?

Yes. See attached image.
I see that the coordinates are longitude/latitude so you might need to use a transformation.

I didn't use a projection. The location appears to be in Australia. You will need to do a little research to select the one that is best for you. I think this image is from zone 52. https://georepository.com/crs_28356/GDA94-MGA-zone-56.html

Thanks.

Can this larger file be opened?

This one is from UTM zone 48 N

Nope. Too big. But some windows apps like paint can't open it either. Most apps can't load more than 2GB without a special compiler setting. TC x64 can't insert it either. It is a memory limit not necessarily to an image file. If Windows can't load it then it won't work. A rule might be "Keep the size under 1GB." You can try larger ones but 2GB is pushing it.
