Qimera Create Project Dialog

How to Start

What it Does

This dialog closes the previous project if one is open and creates a new empty project. 

General Description 

This dialog has the following options.  The layout on disk of the project is described here.

Project Name

Enter the name you want for your project.  Qimera will create a folder with this name in the Location directory.


This is the directory path where your project folder will be created.  To change it, simply click on the Browse button and browse to a new folder.

Project Path

This shows the constructed project path.


Use this section to describe your project.  This information will be saved in the qpsproject.xml file and can be edited using the Project Properties dialog option of the Main Menu bar.


This section controls how the geodetic configuration of Qimera is setup.  The selected project coordinate system will be used as the coordinate reference system of all Qimera processed data.  All of your output products (lines, surfaces, etc.)  will be adhere to this geodetic configuration.  It must be a projected coordinate system and not a geographic coordinate system.  If you select the Automatic option, Qimera will extract the project coordinate system from QINSy (.db) files or choose an appropriate UTM zone when loading data from Reson (.s7k) or Kongsberg (.all) files by looking at the geographic navigation extents.  If you are loading Hypack (.hsx) files, you must select the Manual option and choose the coordinate system.  The Manual  mode allows you to launch the Coordinate System Selection dialog to select or define your project coordinate system.  The Full Geodetic Configuration mode allows you to create a more complex geodetic configuration.  Use the combo box to select a previously defined configuration.  Use the Load Configuration from file button to load a configuration that has been saved to a file.  Use the Edit Geodetic Configuration button to launch the Geodetic Configuration Overview dialog.
