Planting utilises the CS Artisan Data System of Palettes, Labels, Reports and is consistent across softworks, groundworks, hardworks.
Palettes are created by selecting from customisable source libraries and CSD planting libraries include 9,500 plant species and varieties and incorporates the NPS approved lists.
Users are able to select from the available libraries, classes, sub-classes and/or free-text type to refine searches.
Library information is viewed and selected to add to user-defined palettes and users are free to add new plants to a palette.
Records can be edited/modified/refined when adding items to user-defined palettes or accessed subsequently to carry out changes as required.
Palettes are saved automatically to your CSD Account and become immediately accessible to associated CS Artisan installations for download and labelling or can be accessed directly through the CSD Web Portal via a web browser.
Advanced Search criteria can be selected to identify right plant species/variety by a comprehensive list of characteristics, properties and performance details.
Users are able to copy, download and output palettes from their account as required. Additional control is available for administrators to protect palettes from accidental editing or deletion.
The resultant list of plants can be scrolled through to determine suitability for current palette.
Planting information is added to project drawings via Labelling utilities that calculate planting numbers by Area, Length and Number (specimen). Palettes are downloaded to a local CS Artisan installation and are available to select from as a ‘persistent list’ on the Artisan ribbon.
Utilities are provided so that Label information can be edited after insertion including all specification details. All label object ‘instances’ (multiple occurrences) can be edited at the same time.
Area, Length and Number records in labels are automatically updated when associated
drawing graphical entities are modified.
Information is extracted in Reports throughout a project life-cycle and are automatically updated as drawings are modified.
InDWG Reports provide a continuous record of information as a project progresses through the various work stages.
Report information can easily be extracted into standard spreadsheet format.
CS Artisan drawing and project information can be synced manually or automatically with Web Reports stored in an organisation’s Web Account.
