Namaskaaram/ Hola/ Hi,
I need to used DGN files in my application, I was somehow able to display a DGN file using CAD related interfaces in ArcObjects, the DGN file was not geo-referenced and hence was displaying junk coordinates. Now if I have to use DGN files in my application, do I need to convert DGN to any other ArcGIS related format like coverage or shapefile and then register the converted format and use it. I remember in my previous assignment while working on ArcInfo Workstation 8.0.2 , we converted DGN file to ArcInfo coverage and then used the coverage for future purpose. Now im developing in C#.
Request you to please help me on this.. If any sample code is available for geo referencing the DGN files, please post it
Thanks in Advance,
You may want to check out the topic of Georeferencing a CAD Dataset in the desktop help.
The DGN file can be georeferenced using an affine transformation stored in a world file. You can, of course, convert the CAD drawing to a geodatabase, but that isn't required.
