Using DXF files 

I reviewed your webinar on using BEST imagery and you talk about importing dxf files from AutoCADD.  I sucessfully imported a background file from Google into BEEST but I am having problems with a dxf file.  How does one georeference the dxf file in BEEST; the program does not seem to prompt the appropriate questions like it does when importing a map from Google?  I want to overlay the dxf (site map) on to the google background image.

Re: Using DXF files 

BEEST reads the object coordinates from the DXF file and displays objects on the screen based on those coordinates. When creating a DXF file, make sure that objects are saved with UTM coordinates.

Re: Using DXF files 

A question related to using DXF files, is there a maximum file size (MB) that can be read into BEEST?  I was trying to read in a 124MB dxf plot plan and received a "problem loading background file" error.

Re: Using DXF files 

There is no maximum file size for DXF files that's enforced by BEEST. I suggest reducing the file size and loading the file again. To do that, you can export a smaller area and/or less layers from AutoCAD.
