About Handy Surveying

This app has been developed in consultation with experienced surveyors in both Australia and the US and includes many of the common Coordinate Geometry (COGO) calculations needed for land surveying field work.

The app can store points for multiple jobs simultaneously, and can easily compute and store the next point on each leg of a continuous bearing and distance traverse. Once a traverse has been completed, it can be plotted, exported, and the misclosure can be computed and corrected if desired.

Functions include:

* Conduct a survey as a continuous traverse, automatically storing points in a point database
* Stakeout points on the ground from a plan
* Plot survey points
* List and edit survey point coordinates
* Import and export survey points from/to a CSV file
* Compute the misclosure distance and angle
* Automatically correct the misclosure using the Bowditch method.
* Compute enclosed area and perimeter
* Traverse / Radiation (2D and 3D)
* Inverse / Join (2D and 3D)
* Horizontal curve solver
* Intersection by bearings
* Intersection by distances
* Intersection by bearing and distance
* Intersection of two lines
* Intersection of perpendicular lines
* Point Scale Factor
* Grid Convergence
* General purpose calculator with trig functions and degree conversion tool
* Bearing calculator
* Polar to rectangular tool
* Units conversion tool

The app defaults to bearing entry and display in DD.MMSS format, but you can also select D/M/S or Decimal Degrees (Dec Deg) formats. You can also choose for northings to appear before eastings using an option on the preferences page.

Very quick to respond. Great app. Probably closer to usable than most out there.

I am surprised at how complete this is. Good job.

I like the software but it desperatly needs a way to select and store points in the intersections calculations. and the map view is really hard to zoom correctly. Update all the above issues were resolved wi...
