In ESurvey CADD – cross sections can be renamed in 4 ways

  1. Renaming the cross section while importing data from CAD
  2. Renaming the cross section numbers in bulk
  3. Changing the cross section name of a specific cross section
  4. Giving custom cross section name


1. Renaming the cross section while importing data from CAD:

This requirement comes if the starting change for the selected alignment is not zero.
