Update to Original Post by Pedro Hernandez

Here is a link to a Google Sheet with the Spreadsheet in English, also using feet and acres in the calculations.

Link to Traverse Closure Sheet

Thanks Pedro Hernandez for the original and for the challenge of translating and editing it for English units. Let me know if I got any of the English wrong. (from Google Translate)


P.S. I attached the Excel sheet that I converted from Google Sheets but I didn't check if it came across right.

P.P.S. Of course, use this at your own risk and I make no guarantees of its sufficiency.
