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

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 Citys 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 Citys 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 Everetts 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.

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

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 Citys 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 Citys 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 Citys GIS mapping, projects must be referenced or tied to the Washington State Plane Coordinate System which is used for the Citys 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 Citys 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

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 Citys 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) Field Book # (2 spaces) Page # (2 spaces) 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) Township # (2 spaces) Range # (3 spaces) 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.

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

Field Books
All work must be recorded in City field books and shall provide the following information: The name or title of the project as assigned by the City project manager. The date the work was done on each page of the field book. The pages of the field book shall be numbered. The names of members of the field party doing the work.

All work shall be indexed in the front of the field book. References and/or descriptions of all PLSS land record monuments, City of Everett GIS monuments, NGS monuments, an other governmental land record or mapping monuments utilized during the course of the work shall be indexed independently in a monument index at the front of the field book. Field notes shall be clear, concise, and legible and shall contain sufficient information for ease of use by unfamiliar parties. All City supplied field books shall be returned to the Citys project manager at the completion of the survey tasks.

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

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 Autodesks 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. 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 Citys 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 Everetts SV-POINT or Land Desktops 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. Always use this five character code for survey work. Always use this five character code for surveyed points. Survey Control Identifier Survey firm name or abbreviation.

All linework, symbols and text will follow current City of Everett layering standards. 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. 6

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

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. All survey base drawing files shall be tied to the Citys 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). 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 Citys project manager, and in station and offset left or right format whenever possible. Separate AutoCAD files will be provided for:

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 Mappings 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 AutoCADs 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.

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

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 citys 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 companys 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 consultants 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 isnt 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

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

Contours Drawings that contain Land Desktops 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.

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

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 AutoCADs 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

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 TBSURVY 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 TBSURVY block of the respective project control points

Layer Names
The City of Everetts layering standard is necessary to provide a baseline for coordination between the Citys 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 = = AAAAA-BBBBB-CCCCC-DDD

Feature (5 character) See Default Layering Table. Phase (5 character) describes Features location in time. See Phase Below. Entity Type (5 character) describes AutoCAD entities on Feature layer 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.

CCCCC

DDD

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 AutoCADs 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.

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. Phase Field Table

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. Entity Field Table

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 (stbs) 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 EVTSupport\EVERETT.LIN file. These line type definitions are now consistent with those in AutoCADs 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 lines 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.

Block names are the same as the file name that they are stored in. They start with a twocharacter 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.
