Cogo

Post by Eric Anderson » Wed Aug 10, 2011 7:52 am

Is it possible to add another code to the Cogo bearing codes (Currently 1=NE, 2=SE, 3=SW, 4=NW)? e.g. 5=North/South Azimuth

Hi,

I wrote the core of COGO in MicroSurvey a little over 20 years ago, and I'm curious what exactly do you mean by North/South azimuth?

e.g.

I'm working on a drawing in bearings and most of my existing field work is in bearings, but I receive some field data/traverse data that uses azimuths and I want to compute that information without having to change my drawing settings to azimuths.

Great idea. So 5270.3456 would be 270 degrees, 34 minutes, 56 seconds. We would probably choke on the 4 characters before the decimal point right now, but that would be easy to fix.

Sweet Chickens!! :D

That would be awesome! You probably would need a program setting to determine if someone is working with North or South Azimuths.

This is also tied in with my concern on this thread:

Is there a way to go back in Cogo if you enter in a wrong bearing/azimuth or distance without exiting the Cogo routine? :?:

Nevermind, I figured it out! :oops:
