Interface modules

Modules to import and export data.

ALB Import

ALB Import

If you work with land acquisition, land usage or land consolidations, importing the necessary initial data is as simple as a mouse click. Working with land parcels, you need not only the geometry, but also the land registers, property owners, type of land usage and various other data from the real estate registers.

If the data is available electronically, you can not only import it easily, but you can also decide whether to import all or only a part of the data in order to keep your project data to a minimum.

The data is automatically compared with existing data while being imported. If, for example, a land register already exists for the project, it will not be imported again but will merely be updated should it contain additional information.

Overlapping deliveries can be safely imported without any problems. The data of the land acquisition database are linked to graphics data if available. ALK (real estate maps) and ALB (real estate registers) therefore form one cohesive data unit within card_1. more >


Import and export of alignments, switches, cants, cross-falls and vertical alignments. Available formats: ASCIIBAHN 3.0 (Maglev), VERM.ESN (binary), GND-EDIT.

GEOgraf Import

Import data in the GEOgraf format as base map data.

IFC Export

Export IFC-Objects to exchange project data in BIM-projects (data exchange with Autodesk Revit, RIB iTWO, G&W California, Nemetschek Allplan, DESITE, Siemens NX etc.).

Import GIS Data

The new Import Shape Data interface is an easy to use tool to import GIS data and WFS data into card_1.

Design objects are also based on the data of the existing conditions. These are managed in geographical information systems. Nature reserves, conservation areas, water conservation areas, flood areas, administrative borders as well as road and other data are examples of data compiled in such systems.

Products from the ESRI(r) ArcGIS family are so common that the Shape format has basically established itself as the standard data exchange format. Some of the German federal states' environmental authorities even provide free access to Shape data on the internet.

You can seamlessly import any geometric and attribute data into your card_1 project using the new Import Shape Data card_1 module. The interface enables you to import points, polygons and areas as well as any object attributes making it very easy to include this geographical information while designing and creating drawings with card_1. You can access the attributes to run analyses and other evaluations within card_1.
