Q: How can I switch back the revered x and y coordinates collected with the field collector?

A: The coordinate system of some measurement instruments is opposite to the coordinate system of the SuperMap desktop tool (the X and Y coordinate values are reverse). Data collected includes points, lines, and regions. The processing steps are as follows:
1. Create a new line object A, which is 45 degrees to the axis X and goes through the first and third quadrants, and the origin of the coordinate system.

2. Set the layer for the data that needs to be modified editable, select all objects, and find the Mirror object editing command. 

3. Draw a mirror line coincident with the line object A. Then you will get the correct x and y coordinates.
