Command Description

The Utility Conformance Report command is for reporting as-built strings against a surface and displaying grades, cover, and location. This command is ideal for reporting underground conduits and subsoils. Options for summary display and an option to visualize output in plan-view prior to creating report.


At the top of the command pane there is the ability to load and save a tolerance setting file. Once you have populated the command with the appropriate tolerances and setting for a report you can save it in a file that can be reloaded in the future.

Report tab

As-Built Line Select an as-built line string to use in the report (optional). Option to change the selection highlight colour. (Highlight does not work on pipe strings)
Line vertical offset If a line string has been chosen - Specify a vertical adjustment to apply to the as-built line string. This is useful if you have located the invert but want to report to the top of pipe.
Surveyed line location If a line string has been chosen – Enter a name into the text box relating to the surveyed location being reported, eg. Top of Pipe
Pipe Level If a Pipe string has been chosen – Select the justification required for reporting.
As-Built Points Select as-built points to use in the report (optional). These can be reported the same as the line or can be displayed separately for things like “Top of Pits”
Surveyed point location Text box relating to the surveyed location of the points being reported, eg. Top of Pit
Design Mode Choose the Mode to use - Surface or Strings to conform the as-built against.
Surface Choose a surface from the list.

This will create a surface projected between the left and right strings.
Control - Select a line to use to calculate perpendicular to, between the left and right string.
Left – Select the left string to use for levels
Right – Select the right string to use for levels

Measure perpendicular Check if you want the points to be tested perpendicular to the Design.
Design offset Enter the level distance from the design. This is vertical or perpendicular depending on the previous setting.
Control Select the control alignment to which you want to report chainage, offset and direction. Option to change the selection highlight colour and to select line from Reference files. (Must have)
Restrict chainage
Start station
End station
Check if you want chainages to be restricted between the Start chainage and End chainage you specify.


Minimum Cover
Maximum Cover
Minimum Grade
Maximum Grade

Enter the minimum and maximum tolerance values to use to report the as-built against the surface and itself.
Report As-Built nodes Check if you want to report only the nodes on the as-built line string. Note: You must have one of these reporting interval options selected if using an as-built line. If neither “interval” is selected it will only report the points.
Report at regular Control interval Check if you want to report at regular intervals you specify in Control interval along the as-built line string rather than or as well as at nodes.
Combine Points and lines Check this if you want to include the points selected with the as-built line into the same vertical summary and report against the cover tolerances. If no Reporting Intervals are selected above, then use this to report points only. If unchecked points and lines are reported separately.
Include As-built Grades Check this if you want to display as-built grades in the report.


Details tab

Title Enter a title for the report (for example, the project name).
Custom image file Select a “png” or “bmp” image file to be added to the top right corner of the report. E.g., company Logo or project image. This only appears if you have a Title filled out.
Description Enter a description for the report.
Reference number Enter a survey job reference number.
Author Enter the name of the report's author.
Custom Header Enter a user defined heading
Custom Text Enter a user defined text to go beside the Custom header
Pipe/Conduit diameter Enter a value for the utility size to display in the report

Visualization tab

Create visualization layers Check if you want conformance information to be displayed on layers in TBC.
Layer prefix Enter a prefix to add to layer names.
Text Height Select the height of the text to be displayed on screen.
Text Style Select the text style for the text displayed on screen.
Gap This is the distance in metres that the insertion point of the text will be right/left of the node it is created for.
Draw leader line with gap Check this to add a leader line when a gap has been used.
Clear visualization layers Check if you want the layers to be cleared before adding new data.
Include data prefix Check if you want to include the “Data” type as a prefix to the text on screen.
Data and prefixes Check the boxes for the data you need to see on screen and adjust the prefixes that are used.
  • Cover (line) – level difference from Line to surface
  • As-built Grade (line) – grades between reported nodes on the line.
  • Survey level (line) – As-built survey level of the position on the line.
  • Easting (point) – Easting of point
  • Northing (point) – Northing of point
  • Cover (point) – level difference from point to surface
  • As-Built grade (point) – grades between reported points only when no line grades are reported.
  • Survey level (point) – As-built survey level of the point
Align text square to line Draw text perpendicular to the As-built line selected.
