Introduction
The purpose of this document is to provide the surveying and engineering consultants with the
appropriate guidelines for completing surveys and CAD drawings created for the City of Everett.

Compliance with agreed upon project control and data management conventions is important to
the City and public in terms of quality control and return on investment. The success of this
compliance/cooperation will influence the continuation of the present program of contracting
with private surveying firms for City projects.
                                                     Survey Standards




City of Everett EPS Dept CAD Standards.doc September 30, 2004           1
General Information
Prior to the start of any survey work, the following steps will be required:

      •     A job-specific scope of work must be coordinated with and approved by the City’s project
            manager and the City survey representative prior to beginning surveying work for the
            City. This scope of work shall include, at a minimum, compliance with this document and
            specify the vertical datum to be used for the survey.
      •     A meeting will be scheduled to review the project scope of work and compliance with
            these standards. At minimum, representatives from the survey firm shall include the
            project manager (PE or PLS) and the CAD manager or operator who will be preparing
            the digital base maps and associated files. The City will be represented by the Project
            Engineer, a representative for Surveying and a representative from the City CAD
            department.
      •     The Survey firm will be provided a current copy of this document along with a disk
            including this document, current blocks and templates, and other CAD support files
            necessary to meet the City’s CAD standards.
      •     The Survey firm will be provided with City of Everett field books, appropriate monument
            locations, elevations and coordinates for both horizontal and vertical control points, and
            additional monument archival information previously coordinated with the City Surveyor,
            and IDS prints for project area showing existing city utilities.

All consultant survey work done for the City shall be coordinated and completed under the direct
supervision of a State of Washington professional land surveyor in accordance with their
professional services contract with the City of Everett.

Surveys done under contract to the City by private surveyors can provide important information
to update the City of Everett’s Geographic Information System (GIS) database as well as meet
the surveying and CAD needs for specific projects. The City of Everett is interested in
maintaining and expanding its GIS and Survey base drawing files with information provided
through this consulting surveying process.

Since most of the surveying work done by private surveyors will have to be archived and used
by City staff and the public for many years, it is essential for surveying work to comply with City
of Everett Survey and CAD Standards.

All survey data will be submitted to the City in a digital format that is compatible with the version
of AutoCAD currently being used by the City of Everett. Any departure from the requirements
set forth in this document must be approved by the City before any work is started by the
consulting survey firm. Surveys not complying with this convention will not be accepted.

Basic horizontal and vertical survey control information on all City projects must be
recorded in City supplied field books. This requirement is particularly important as it pertains
to control monuments, right-of-way and property corner locations. For surveys done with data
collectors, the work recorded in the field books, although limited, should include sketches and
diagrams of the survey control base lines, horizontal and vertical control monument
descriptions, the basis for horizontal and vertical control on a project such as the state plane
coordinates for control monuments and the benchmark elevations. This information will be
included in the digital drawing files on the appropriate control, monument and GIS layers.

.


The following stationing conventions will be followed and provided in the base drawing on a
stationing layer with ties to existing City monumentation. Deviations from these conventions
may be necessary on certain utility projects as determined by the City’s project manager.

      •     Stationing shall read left (10+00) to right (?+??). The minimum stationing start point will
            be 10+00. Negative stationing will not be allowed.

      •     Stationing shall run from south to north or west to east.

      •     North shall be to the top or right of the printed page. On the data file, north shall be up
            (World Coordinate System).

      •     Centerline stationing shall have tick marks (SV-STA-T) every 50 or 20 feet with
            annotation at 100 foot intervals

Departures from data collection and presentation conventions will be approved by the City
survey manager and the project manager prior to beginning surveying work. In all cases, the
Revised Code of Washington (RCW) and the Washington Administrative Code (WAC) shall take
precedence over policy and convention.




Survey Control
The appropriate vertical and horizontal control for a project will be discussed and agreed upon
at a coordination meeting with the City’s project manager, City surveyor and the private
surveyor before work begins on a project. Local monumentation should be researched,
reviewed and shared by the City and the private surveyor for the specific project. The selection
of control should be based upon the appropriate instrumentation, methodology and required
control closures for the project. The project budget, scope and quality control should be
considered as well as GIS database enhancement. Field surveying instruments and measuring
techniques to be used on the project should also be discussed and agreed upon. In general, a
1:20,000 minimum closure will be regarded as an appropriate closure for project control surveys
although a 1:10,000 minimum closure may be accepted under some circumstances.

In order for projects to be incorporated into the City’s GIS mapping, projects must be referenced
or tied to the Washington State Plane Coordinate System which is used for the City’s GIS
mapping system. This will be incorporated in the digital base drawing file using the GIS layer
and TB-SURVY block. In most cases, due to the proximity of the City’s GIS control monuments,
this work will have to be done by Global Positioning System (GPS) techniques. GPS work for a
City project must be coordinated with the City surveyor prior to beginning work. All GPS data
developed as part of a Survey project must be submitted for review and approval to the City
along with the other survey data. Data submitted for each monument shall include but shall not
be limited to the information requested on the attached “Survey Recovery Form.” (see attached)
GPS data shall conform to the section titled “Requirements for Submission of GPS Data”.

Horizontal coordinate datum for the GIS control network is presently based on the North
American Datum of 1983, with the 1991 re-adjustment, (NAD 83/91). Locations, elevations


City of Everett EPS Dept CAD Standards.doc September 30, 2004                                             3
and coordinates of both horizontal and vertical control points for use on a project shall be
provided by or approved for use by the City surveyor prior to beginning the survey.

All elevations and state plane coordinates submitted to the City as shown on the Survey
Recovery Form shall be in both meters and U.S. Survey Feet.

New or existing monuments, if un-named/numbered, shall be named/numbered by City surveyor
prior to recording or monument data for the project. If the City has already established
names/numbers for project monuments, the surveyor shall use the City’s designations.
Monument references submitted to the City as part of a City project shall not be assigned
names/numbers without prior approval of the monument names/numbers by City surveyor.
Names/numbers for monuments shall be assigned to monuments according to function, i.e.
Right-of-Way Monuments, Public Land Survey System (PLSS) Monuments or GIS Monuments
as follows:

Right-of-way monument:                                          (4 spaces)     (2 spaces)   (2 spaces)
                                                                Field Book #      Page #      Point #

            Example: Point No. 3 on Page 13 of field book No. 614 should be written as
            614 13 03

Sections/Quarter Corners:                                       (2 spaces)     (2 spaces)   (3 spaces)
                                                                Township #     Range #      Section # *

            *Section number used DNR alpha/numeric convention

            Example: The northwest corner of Sec. 17, T. 28 N., R 5 E. should be written as
            28 05 J05

GIS Control Monument:                                           (4 spaces)
                                                                Number/Name

            Example: A typical City GIS monument will be a 3-digit number preceded by
            an “E” such as: EO88




In addition to survey control, other survey data, which shall be coordinated with the City project
manager, shall include the data sheet orientation, cross section intervals, stationing
requirements and other project specific data collection requirements.

Digital Survey Data
The following instructions must be followed on all survey projects, unless prior approval is
obtained from the City:

1.          Survey data provided to the City in a digital format shall be compatible with the version
            of AutoCAD presently being used by the City. Third party fonts, hatch patterns, and
            linetypes shall not be used in drawing files submitted to the City. Custom objects
            generated by other software, such as Land Desktop, shall be converted to a format
            readable by standard AutoCAD without the use of plug-ins such as Autodesk’s Object
            Enablers. Files must be complete and usable without having to download any files not
            included in the standard AutoCAD release. Digital survey data shall be provided to the
            City on CD-ROM.

2.          Survey point data files submitted to the City in a digital format shall include the following:
               • Point numbers will numerically designate survey points. Points will be
                   sequentially numbered.
               • Nodes will denote the exact location of a point.
               • Elevations shall be shown to the nearest hundredth of a foot.
               • Descriptions will be abbreviated descriptions from the City’s Abbreviation List
                   found in this manual.

            All survey point data shall be represented with an AutoCAD block with attributes for the
            point number, elevation, and description. Each attribute within the block definition will be
            on its own layer. Blocks such as the City of Everett’s SV-POINT or Land Desktop’s
            POINT are acceptable.

            Point blocks shall be grouped on layers by topographic feature per the following layer
            name syntax:

                  AAAAA-SURVY-POINT-FIRM

                         AAAAA             =           Item Description (5 char.) see “Layer Names” in the section
                                                       “CAD Standards” of this document.

                         SURVY             =           Always use this five character code for survey work.

                         POINT             =           Always use this five character code for surveyed points.

                         FIRM              =           Survey Control Identifier – Survey firm name or abbreviation.


3.          All linework, symbols and text will follow current City of Everett layering standards.

4.          Use the following guidelines for text:

      •     Only standard text fonts supplied with AutoCAD will be used. Text Style names will be
            the same and the Text Font used to create the Style. Text height will not be defined in
            the Text style definitions. Roman, Standard and Complex are the City default text
            styles/fonts.

      •     All text will be placed on separate layers per the drafting standards.


City of Everett EPS Dept CAD Standards.doc September 30, 2004                                                          6
      •     All text describing existing entities will be placed in Model Space. Text height will be
            such that when viewed through a 1=20 scaled viewport, it will no smaller than 0.08
            inches and no greater than 0.10 inches high.

      •     Street names placed in Model Space will be on layer “STNAM-EXIST-TEXT”. Text
            height will be such that when viewed through a 1=20 scaled viewport it will be 0.17
            inches high. Street names in Model Space are normally frozen during printing. Street
            names placed in Paper Space will be on “SHEET-MISC” layer. Text height shall be 0.17
            inches high.

      •     An attempt shall be made to orient existing feature text annotation (asphalt, grass, fence
            etc.) so it is in the general direction of the project centerline stationing.

      •      Utility line text annotation is included in the line via use of Everett linetypes.

5.          All survey base drawing files shall be tied to the City’s GIS mapping control monument
            system. This will be accomplished by inserting the Everett standard block “TB-SURVY”
            on layer GIS---SURVY-SYMBL. The block will be scaled such that it is readily visible
            when the base drawing is opened. A leader/line will be provided from the inserted block
            to the control monument(s).

6.          The surveyor shall provide a complete print-out of the coordinate file that lists or
            describes all points surveyed in project datum as specified by the City’s project
            manager, and in station and offset left or right format whenever possible.

7.          Separate AutoCAD files will be provided for:

      •     Surveyed base map consisting of linework, blocks and text representing existing
            topography and utilities.

      •     Point data per item 2 above.

      •     Contours on appropriate layers

Project Coordinates Conversion To State Plane (City GIS) Coordinates

Prior to final submittal to the City, the surveyor shall provide the following information on each
base drawing in a size that is clearly legible when viewing the entire base drawing:

Set the current layer to: “GIS - - - SURVY-SYMBL”

For horizontal control point(s), insert the block: “TB-SURVY” or “TB-SURVY-2”. (Insertion point
and scale as required to be visible and not interfere with existing TOPO)

For separate project vertical control point (benchmark), insert the block “TB-VERT CNTR”.
(Insertion point and scale as required to be visible and not interfere with existing TOPO)

Answer the attribute questions and the information will be inserted on the drawings in the format
shown in the Survey Control Data Tables included in the Appendix. Note: the block should not
be exploded when inserted into base map. Leader lines will point to the control points
referenced in the table. This layer would normally not be printed.

City of Everett EPS Dept CAD Standards.doc September 30, 2004            13
General Information
The City of Everett, Department of Engineering and Public Services has prepared a detailed set
of standards for preparing CAD drawings. Drawing files provided to the City in a digital format
shall be compatible with the version of AutoCAD presently being used by the City. Third party
fonts, hatch patterns, or linetypes shall not be used in CAD files submitted to the City. All final
data files shall be provided to the City on CD-ROM. Preliminary files can be electronically
transmitted to the City project manager via email.

These standards are flexible enough to handle all types of AutoCAD drawing needs, but specific
enough to provide uniformity between drawings. They provide the ability to create entity or layer
selection sets during drawing production.. These standards were designed to allow data to be
exchanged with the Utility Mapping’s ArcInfo based GIS. The City GIS system is based on the
Washington State Plane Coordinate System. Therefore, it is imperative that all survey and
design data files be convertible to this coordinate system. This requirement allows information
from either system to be combined for comparison or planning.

These standards include layer definition and assignment, symbol or block naming and
placement, along with customized linetypes and abbreviation conventions. Information on the
use of layouts and model space in plan preparation is also presented.

The layering convention includes default settings for: layer names, color assignments, linetypes,
and plot styles. Plot styles are directly related to the default line weight and screening in the
plotted drawings for surveyed TOPO and proposed designed TOPO. Layer settings shall be
retained for each unique layout printing. To save these Layer State settings, use either
AutoCAD’s Layer Properties Manager (LA) or Express Tools Layer Manager (LMAN). A Layer
State shall be named according to the layout(s) it applies to.

The default model space settings are contained in “Evt-acad.dwt” as “Evt-Default”.

The symbol naming convention allows symbols to be separated by discipline. The Symbol
Table shows what each block looks like and provides examples of layers the symbols might be
typically placed on. This standard allows new symbols to be defined provided they are created
on layer 0 and their color, line type and plot style are defined as BYBLOCK and line weight is
“default”.

Everett customized Line types are defined in the standard AutoCAD format using plotted
dimensions to be constant with default AutoCAD settings. The abbreviations have been
provided to improve consistency. It is anticipated that all of these standards will be reviewed
and revised over time as the variety and complexity of drawings produced increases.
Therefore, periodic updates to these standards are anticipated and the latest version should be
requested before starting a new project.



Working With Vertical Applications
Many programs that run “on top” of AutoCAD are available to help consultants prepare CAD
projects. Some of these programs create new entity types in order to make their program more
powerful. However, the City requires that all drawing objects be standard AutoCAD entities that
can be viewed with “plain vanilla” AutoCAD. In order for this to occur, you should set the
AutoCAD system variable PROXYGRAPHICS to 1.

Autodesk Land Desktop

            There are a few issues to deal with when using the Land Desktop version of AutoCAD
            on City of Everett projects. Even though Autodesk has free object enablers that allow
            standard AutoCAD to see custom objects such as points and contours, the City is still
            somewhat limited when controlling the display of some of these objects. Also, when
            handing off the CAD file to the city’s GIS system, only standard AutoCAD entities are
            processed.

            Following are some suggestions when using Land Desktop:

            Description Keys

            Description keys are used when you insert points into the drawing from the point
            database file or when you import points into the drawing from an external file or user
            database. When the point is inserted into the drawing, the point layer and symbol
            associations of the description key file are applied to the points.

            A sample description key file (EVERETT SAMPLE.mdb) is being supplied as a starting
            point to create your own file. This sample file is not intended to be complete, nor is it
            intended to define your company’s description codes. It is merely a portion of a file that
            was used on an actual project. Note that the last field of the Point Layer field in this
            sample file contains “CO_ABBREV“ as a reference to the consultant’s company name.
            This should be changed to fit your abbreviated company name. Tip – you can use
            Microsoft Access to do a search and replace operation on this description key field. Just
            make sure the description key file isn’t being used in AutoCAD while you are making
            your edits in Access.

            Symbols

            The City of Everett symbols have been created with the intention of inserting them at a
            one-to-one scale factor. You should temporarily set your drawing scale in Land Desktop
            to 1 before performing an operation that automatically inserts symbols.

            Land Desktop limits you to one path for specifying where the blocks are found when
            inserting points with symbols. This path is found under the Land Desktop Points menu,
            Point Settings…, the Insert tab, in the Search Path for Symbol Block Drawing Files field.
            All Everett blocks should be copied from the individual folders found on the city-supplied
            CD into a single folder of your choice.




City of Everett EPS Dept CAD Standards.doc September 30, 2004                                        15
            Points

            Do not submit drawings that contain Land Desktop’s custom point object
            (AECC_POINT). Before submitting work to the City, re-insert the points using Land’s
            point label style “softdesk point block only”. Following are the recommended settings for
            this point label style:




            Contours

            Drawings that contain Land Desktop’s custom contour object (AECC_CONTOUR) will
            NOT be allowed. Tip - Before submitting work to the City, explode AECC_CONTOURS
            so they become POLYLINEs with MTEXT elevation labels.

Overview of Standard Digital Files
The following is intended to highlight the major items covered by these standards.

      1. All files will be delivered in a DWG format compatible with the version of AutoCAD
         currently being used by the City.
      2. All base maps will be developed in a local coordinate system such that all points have
         positive values and are tied to the Washington State Plane Coordinate System using an
         existing monument designated by and/or approved by the city survey representative.
         Refer to section “Project Coordinates Conversion To State Plane (City GIS)
         Coordinates” in Survey Standards.
      3. All drawing files will:
              a. Use “EVERETT.stb” named plot styles.
              b. Have an “LTSCALE=1” and all Layouts will have a “PSLTSCALE=1”
              c. Have a world coordinate system with an origin such that all points will have a min
                  “X,Y” value of “10,000,10,000”. All files will be 2D with “Z” coordinate values
                  equal to 0.
              d. Use only Layer, Block, Linetype naming conventions defined in this standard or
                  approved in advance by City CAD department.

                        Tip – Use AutoCAD’s DesignCenter and open the file EVT-ACAD.dwg. Drag and
                        drop desired objects (layers, blocks, etc) into your current drawing. Dragging the
                        desired items into your drawing assigns the default properties per the City of
                        Everett CAD Standard.

                  e. Use only standard AutoCAD fonts “.shx”, and Hatch Patterns files.
                  f. Entity properties will be assigned “BYLAYER” accept as specifically noted in this
                     standard.
                  g. The “Standard” Text Style, will be defined using AutoCAD Font “ROMANS.shx”
                     with height=0 and width factor=1.
                  h. Normally all text, notes and dimensions pertaining to existing features will appear
                     in model space. All text, notes and dimensions pertaining to new features should
                     only appear in Layout/Paper Space.
                  i. Only linetypes defined in AutoCAD “ACAD.LIN” and “EVERETT.LIN” will be
                     used.
                  j. City Standard templates will be used whenever possible.

      4. Subject to project manager requirements, the typical Civil project should consist of the
         following base files:
              a. COVER.dwg developed from Everett template “EVT-GEN-SHTS.dwt” containing
                 Legend, Vicinity Map and Engineers stamp sheet for project specification.
              b. DESIGN.dwg consisting of construction drawing file with a layout for each sheet.
              c. BASE.dwg consisting of all existing TOPO
              d. POINT.dwg with all surveyed point data
              e. CONTR.dwg containing contours.
              f. PRF##.dwg based on a specific line (CL, RT, LT etc) and a 1 to 1 scale ratio. A
                 second profile with traditional scale factors for horizontal and vertical may be
                 used. However, the 1 to 1 will be provided for future use.
              g. CRSEX.dwg (when required ) consists of cross sections along the various
                 profiles. As with profiles one set of all cross sections will be provided with a scale
                 ratio of 1 to 1 for current or future use. A second file may be used in the project.



City of Everett EPS Dept CAD Standards.doc September 30, 2004                                          17
      5. The typical project construction drawing file is constructed by:
            a. Creating a new drawing file using the appropriate Everett template file:

                                 1) EVT-Gen-Shts.dwt=Used for Cover, Index, Legend, Vicinity Map and
                                    Signature sheet for Specifications.
                                 2) EVT-TB D PlnPrf.dwt = Used when Plan and Profile view required.
                                    Viewports preset at 1=20
                                 3) EVT-TB D Plan.dwt = Used when only Plan view required.
                                 4) EVT-TB D Xsects.dwt = Used to show Cross sections on title block.
                                 5) EVT-TB D DETAIL.dwt = Used when Standard and/or Project details
                                    are shown in Plan set and not at back of project specification.

                  b. In the model space tab Xreference the needed drawing files using overlay on the
                     appropriate layer set to “XR-##-(BASE, PROFL, XSECT, POINT, CONTR ETC)”.
                     The use of overlay allows others to xref the original files and/or your drawing file
                     without creating overlapping nested files.
                  c. Place new design entities on appropriate layers in model space.
                  d. Use paper space containing the standard title block, viewports for plan and
                     profiles, to place non-topo entities such as notes, scale bars, north arrows etc.
                     Layout name will be the same as the drawing number.
                  e. Once first sheet is set up with appropriate viewports, etc., lock viewports. Edit
                     title block attributes which apply to overall project. Then copy the layout to
                     second layout and rename appropriately.

                  Tip – Layouts can be imported from drawing files or template files. Right-click on any
                  layout tab and select “From template…”, select the desired City standard drawing or
                  template file, then select the desired layout.

Digital File Preparation
The following standards are designed to utilize a single continuous base map for each project
drawn in real world coordinates where one drawing unit equals one foot and the local coordinate
system origin is tied to the state plane coordinate system by the information provided in the “TB-
SURVY” attributes for the project control monument. This allows different survey base maps to
be combined by inserting each into a drawing using the information provided by the “TB-
SURVY” block of the respective project control points

Layer Names
The City of Everett’s layering standard is necessary to provide a baseline for coordination
between the City’s GIS and other agencies and departments. It is important to adhere to this
standard to facilitate use of this information. The basis of this standard is the layer naming
convention, which readily identifies groups of similar entities within the drawing.

Layer Name Syntax

            Layer Name Example:                                 AAAAA-BBBBB-CCCCC-DDD

            AAAAA                    =           Feature (5 character) See “Default Layering Table.”

            BBBBB                   =            Phase (5 character) describes Features location in time. See
                                                 Phase Below.

            CCCCC                   =            Entity Type (5 character) describes AutoCAD entities on Feature
                                                 layer

            DDD                     =            Optional User Defined (Variable character length) to provide more
                                                 specific detailed information about the entities on the layer when
                                                 user feels such delineation is justified in manipulation of layers
                                                 within the file.

The layering standard is based on a minimum of three fields and an optional user field
separated by hyphens: AAAAA – BBBBB – CCCCC – DDD. The first three fields have a fixed
length of five characters. Codes less than five characters in length shall be completed with
hyphens on the right-hand side.

For default layer settings, refer to the field definition tables on the following pages.

For a consolidated list of field definitions, refer to Layer Name Field Definitions in the Appendix.

Tip – Use AutoCAD’s DesignCenter and open the file EVT-ACAD.dwg. Drag and drop desired
objects (layers, blocks, etc) into your current drawing. Dragging layers into your drawing sets
the layer properties per the City of Everett CAD Standard.




City of Everett EPS Dept CAD Standards.doc September 30, 2004                                                    20
Layer Name Field Definitions

Feature Field
AAAAA – BBBBB – CCCCC - DDD

The first 5-character field indicates the item description, major characteristic or discipline of the
items contained on that layer. For example, drawing entities related to a 12” water line would be
on the WTR12-BBBBB-CCCCC-DDD layer, and those related to Storm Drain would be on layer
SD----BBBBB-CCCCC-DDD.

Phase Field
AAAAA – BBBBB – CCCCC – DDD

The second 5-character field indicates the project phase of the item associated with that layer.
For example, entities which were existing at the time of construction could be on the AAAAA-
(EXIST, SURVY, GIS—, or RECRD ETC)-CCCCC-DDD layers. Entities that are to be
constructed by this project could be on layers AAAAA-(NEW--, REMOV, ALT-1 or ABAND,
ETC)-CCCCC-DDD. Therefore, layer WTR12-NEW---CCCCC-DDD would contain drawing
entities relating to the 12” water line to be constructed by this project.

Entity Field
AAAAA – BBBBB – CCCCC – DDD

The third 5-character field is used to identify the AutoCAD entity type and is used to separate
entities for the purpose of drawing presentation. For all Feature, Phase field combinations there
will normally be an Entity Field of LINES, SYMBL or TEXT-. The two main reasons for this are
that each layer can be turned off or on and/or assigned different pen weights via the named plot
styles. For example, by placing water mains on layer WTR12-BBBBB-LINES-DDD and water
valves on layer WTR12-BBBBB-SYMBL-DDD, you are able to turn the lines off or on in different
viewports with in the same layout using the freeze command. The plotted line weight can be
controlled from layout to layout by changing the plot style associated with the layer in the
appropriate layout. The different settings will be retained by using Layer Manager “.las” files
named according to the layout it controls. Note that it is also possible to maintain different “lay”
files for same Layout under different names.

Optional User Field
AAAAA – BBBBB – CCCCC – DDD

The fourth field, when required, can have any number of characters. This field is intended for a
user-defined description when it is necessary to further separate entities. This optional field can
show things like ownership (PUD, PARKS, SNOCTY), material (APS, PVC, WOOD), entity
name (MH, INLET, GATE V, JBOX, EMPTY) or plotted pen weight (PEN101, PEN105) For
example, entities on WTR12-EXIST-LINES-DI would be existing 12” ductile iron water line,
where as WTR12-EXIST-LINES-ASC would contain existing 12” asbestos concrete water.

Color Standard
The suggested/default colors provide two functions. The first and probably the most important
is to separate different types of entities by color so they can be differentiated on the monitor
during drawing production. The second is merely the need for a starting point from which to start
and to return to. This concept applies to base maps in model space more than anywhere. The
model space base drawing is what other users and systems will use. Therefore, the standard
provides a base to start from for these users and systems. This layer property is retained, as are
the other default properties, in the Evt-Default.las file. The user can save this file under another
name and then modify it to their specific usage. The Evt-Default.las file is not to be modified.

Plot Style Standard
With the advent of Named Plot Styles (stb’s) the plotted line weight no longer needs to be
controlled by the layer or entity color. As always, the intent of a drawing is normally clarified with
the use of different line weights. Different drawings and layouts may have different objectives
(intents) and therefore the same entity may need to appear different in each of the drawings.
For example, new curb and gutter and electrical conduit may appear differently in the electrical
drawing than they would in the drawing used to construct the curb and gutter. However, it is
required that they both be shown in each drawing. Thus the Everett CAD Standard is based on
this same idea. As has always been the industry standard to show this distinction by the use of
3 or 4 line weights and the use of screened (normally representing existing entities) and solid
line intensity. This relationship of line weight and intensity is shown in the EVERETT.STB plot
style table shown in this section.

Tip – Print the attached sheet “Everett Plot Styles (EVERETT.STB) & 255 Color Palette” on your
in-house printer/plotter used for draft and/or final production. This will give you an accurate
preview of the colors and shades of gray that you have to print with.

AutoCAD Linetypes

All custom line types created for the City of Everett CAD Standards are contained in the EVT-
Support\EVERETT.LIN file. These line type definitions are now consistent with those in
AutoCAD’s ACAD.LIN file and thus no longer require LTSCALE and PSLTSCALE settings
different than the default AutoCAD settings (LTSCALE=1, PSLTSCALE=1). With this system,
the line types will appear the same in all scaled viewports.

The line types were developed using the following standards:
   • The overall appearance of the plotted line was determined by its appearance and clarity
       within a 20 scale viewport using the default plot style of the layer which would normally
       contain the line type. This scale being the standard for all non-architectural dwgs with in
       the Everett System. Note - all other scales must be approved by the City project
       manager.
   • The standard line type name consists of three fields separated by a hyphen. The first
       field consists of “-EV-“,.The second field is a short abbreviation/description of the line’s
       intended use or discipline (see table below). The third field indicates the annotation used
       in annotated line types. In non-annotated line types this field is used as a short, more
       definitive description. The optional forth field can be used for further clarification. For
       example, REV would indicate the line appears the opposite of a line type with the same
       name (only on directional lines). The use of HF is intended to indicate a line type which
       repeats in approximately half the distance as the line with the same name.
   • Romans text style and Romans text font were use in all annotated line types. Therefore,
       a text style called ROMANS using a text font of ROMANS must be defined in the
       drawing before loading the Everett line types.
   • Text in annotated line types is intended to have a height of 0.1” in all viewports. The
       same line type is used for existing and new lines.

By setting the LTSCALE=20 in the model space base map the lines will appear as they will
within the standard 20 scale viewport and make the line type text easy to read. However, since
the LTSCALE variable is a drawing standard variable and not controlled by the layout the
LTSCALE=20 requires one to change the LTSCALE factor after entering the layout or model
space. Therefore, it is suggested that the base map be xrefed into the construction drawing file
where the layout LTSCALE=1. This will eliminate the need to change the LTSCALE before
plotting.

Standard Symbols
Block names are the same as the file name that they are stored in. They start with a two-
character prefix followed by a hyphen. This allows all of the blocks to be sorted by discipline
and improves readability. The System allows for new symbols to be defined provided that they
are created on layer zero and their color, plot style and linetype are defined BYBLOCK. The
attached City of Everett Standard Symbols Blocks lists all of the currently defined blocks. The
table shows a not-to-scale icon of the symbol, its file name, a description of what the symbol is
intended to represent, whether the symbol is typically found in model or paper space and
examples of the layers the symbol might be found on. The symbols library has been sorted by
function and then stored in the EVT-Symbols Directory.
