"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 side…"
"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 someone…"
"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…"
"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 to…"
"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."
"Hi Michael, thanks for being the first person to post a comment about this application written for mobile phone's and Tablets. It's a great time saver for those who still have to work out Traverses immediately onsite from hand booked…"

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?

We have dedicated, geolocated support groups for practically every country, continent and state on earth, for you to utilize for building your personal network. We are all essentially concerned with the same issues, no matter where we are located on earth. However, surveying practices and methods vary depending on the geographic location where we work.
