How do I use surveyors coordinates? ( N23d12'43"W 123.

Postby michael » Sun Sep 23, 2007 10:32 pm

Angles are always less than 90 and related to compass coordinates.

1. Select start point of line, then placement of dimension.

Dimension is noted as angle over length:
N23d12'43"W
123.26 ft


1. Enter another line by selecting Snap To Polar coordinate.
2. Entering on the command line: @123.26<90+23+12/60+43/3600

A little more typing, but it works.


Integrate that so that you can use a file to load for input "surveyors coordinates")
