Geo Reference

Post by rwhatman » Mon Jun 09, 2008 5:45 am

I would like to add to the wish list again Geoditic Reference.

Right now I work in Nad83 grid bearing and then I have to rotate drawing to Astronomic bearing.

I would like to stay in Nad83. Pick a line and say this line is N18d01'W Astronomic. Then program shows me the other lines in Nad83 and Astronomic. Just like it shows metres and feet at the same time.

Now you already have a bearing correction in your program.

You just have to change it so it reads the Astoromic version.

I then can turn plan angle.

So I don't care how you do in the end. Just hope you see what I am after.

This is coming be ready for it.

I like to ADD that the Grid bearing is known and for the same line the Astronomic bearing is known as well.

I don't want your program to establish ether systems.

I just want to see both systems at the same time.

Just like meters and feet display.

It just a simple rotate .

All the best.

I will add this to the list of items on our wish list for the development team to consider for future programming.

I'll second that request.

It would be great for US cadastral surveys.
