Survey Analyst unable to read RAW header information

Last Published: April 25, 2020


The SDR and TDS converters are not able to read linear units in the header information for RAW (.raw, .rw5) files.

Importing these files into a Survey Project will update the SurveyDataExchange log with the following message:

"INTERNAL ERROR: Failed to parse header data. Error: 0x080004005"


This is a known issue.


Currently, there is no known work around.

In some cases, increasing the spatial domain prior to the import may permit data to load.
