On some drawings, you can use an arrow to identify the location and/or direction of the specific item if necessary.

Fieldlens will recognize and show the Cross-referencing as links to the correct drawing page as long as the drawings have been cross-referenced when the PDF file was generated. As shown in the image below, you will see a teal square when the Drawings include Cross-referenced pages.

Once you click on the blue link, it will show a thumbnail of the referenced drawing, user can quickly navigate to the drawing by clicking on the thumbnail.

NOTE: Keep in mind the file needs to be generated with the Cross-reference when Exported to PDF format before it is uploaded to Fieldlens.

Some common drawing cross-reference examples are shown below.

Special area reference

Areas on-location drawings that require additional information should be cross-referenced to special area drawings by the use of the cross-referencing symbol. The upper segment of the circle contains the room number or area code, and the lower segment has the special area drawing number (or sheet reference/number) in it, as shown below.

Elevation reference

Location drawings can be coded to identify specific elevations, and cross-referenced to elevation drawings by the use of the cross-referencing symbol. This symbol may be used independently or in conjunction with an orientation reference such as North elevation.

As per the example shown below, for this one, the upper segment of the circle should contain the block code and the sequential elevation number for the block, and the lower segment of the circle has the elevation drawing number (or sheet reference/number) in it.

Cross-section reference

Location drawings should be coded to identify specific cross-sections, and cross-referenced to the section drawings by the use of the appropriate symbol. As shown in the example below, the upper segment of the circle contains the block code and the sequential section number for the block, and the lower segment holds the section drawing number (or sheet reference/number).
