Saving displacement links to a file

When you open a link file, spatial adjustment automatically creates displacement links in the map based on the source and destination coordinate values in the file. Link files can help you save time by automating the link creation process.

You can create a link file from the existing displacement links in the map using the Save Links File command. This command opens a Save dialog box and allows you to navigate to the folder of your choice and name the new link file. You also have the option to save link IDs. The link file is saved as a tab-delimited text file.

  1. Click the Spatial Adjustment menu, point to Links, then click Save Links File.
  2. In the Save Links dialog box, click the Look in drop-down arrow and navigate to the folder where you want to save the link file.
  3. Type a name for the link file.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Choose whether to save link IDs.
