OptiSurface Designer Import and Export Format

Last Updated: 21 Feb 2024          For: OptiSurface Designer V3.5 and higher

OptiSurface Designer can import survey files as:
  • Trimble Field Level Survey as *.txt
  • AGPS Survey File (Lat, Long, Elev, Code) as *.ags 
  • John Deere APEX Export as *.csv
  • Generic Survey File (x, y, z, desc) as *.xyz
  • Point Shape File as *.shp with associated files (*.shx and *.dbf)
  • Drawing Exchange Format as *.dxf
  • Land XML as *.xml
and export machine control file as:
  • AGPS Design File as *.agd (needs latest version of AGPS Dirt)
  • Trimble AgGPS Field Level as *.gps
  • Shape Files (*.shp, *.shx, *.dbf)
Some import file formats are not compatible with some export file formats; i.e.multiplane.txt from Trimble should only be exported to .gps file. In OSDv3.4.6 and higher, a new feature is added to allow UTM coordinate grid rotation to export to .gps file.
