Local Projection

Postby nvolny » Wed Mar 16, 2005 10:16 am

Howdy,

Deschutes County has a Local Coord System with the following parameters:
Origin: 121.1700W 43.0000N
Orgin NE: N 0.00 E 3,300,000
Scale: 1.0001600 along meridian

Input this into MSCAD 2004 User Defined Coord System under the points directory and everything converts great. My question is how do I use this system in FieldGenius 2005? Uploaded the Coordsys file and put it in the Mapping/data directory of my data collector but there is no option to select User Defined Coord Sys in the Reference unit settings under Datum. Thanks,

Norb

Hi Norbert,

We added your custom map projection to the FieldGenius Coordsys.dat file. It will be included in the next version of FieldGenius (v1.2).

I also sent you an email with the new file so you can test it.
