"Just to add to my last post you do need to know the thickness of steel of the pipe for centre point accuracy if it's not included in the radius."
Apr 6, 2017
"If you know the radius of the pipes already you could get the centre coords of the pipes by measuring the angle from one side of the pipe to the other side of the pipe, I.e if the instrument is set up and coordinated jot down the bearing of one sideâ€¦"

"Not quite sure I understand what you mean. Wouldn't you just work out the distances between the UTM coords ( Brg and dist) Take the UTM coord distances and divide by your scale factor to give flat line distances."

"Well Billy. If it's an April fools "I don't get it" Certainly not an Earth quake, definitely not another cell phone casualty I can assure you. It looks like a 360 has tracked over an instrument to me. Or it could be someoneâ€¦"

"The only way I can possibly do that right now is to upload the app to a server in which the app could be ran as a web app (From a Desktop PC or a mobile device) for a very short period of time. Obviously you would have to have a Traverse at hand toâ€¦"

"I guess it can be a handy tool for sure for traverse surveys. I would just advise that maybe you can consider giving a free version that one can try before getting the paid-up version, to see if it really works for one's needs."

Dear William Robinson, I am sorry for happening like this. Actually I was listening your video posting which was very useful for me and also I was searching on internet how can I transform UTM coordinate to Plant / Local coordinate.Meantime I try to post that photo, but I don't know how it happened, extremely sorry for doing that. I am working as a Land Surveyor in Kuwait, I am facing a problem here. I have five control points and have UTM coordinates. I need to take fifth control point as base point and its Plant coordinate as (N1000,E1000). I want to find out the plant coordinate of another control point by calculation. Scale factor used in UTM coordinate is 1.000423. I need to remove this scale factor from the plant coordinate. Do you have any idea?

Thanks and Regards

bismi
