COGO Input dialog box
 
 
 

The COGO Input dialog box allows you to create points using coordinate geometry data. It also allows you to run an inverse report to determine the relationship between two points.

To create a point using the COGO Input dialog box

Click Create tab Object panel COGO Input.

Routines

Select the COGO routine to use:

  • Angle/Distance: specify a point by specifying an angle and a distance from another point.
  • Azimuth/Distance: specify a point by specifying azimuth and distance from another point. Azimuth is the clockwise angle from the North(or South) meridian.
  • Bearing/Bearing: specify a point using the projections from two existing lines or points and two bearings.
  • Bearing/Distance: specify a point by specifying a bearing and a distance from another point.
  • Deflection/Distance: specify a point by specifying a deflection angle and a distance from another point.
  • Distance/Distance: calculated a new point using two points and two distances to the new point. You must select one of the two calculated points.
  • Inverse Report: An inverse report gives you information about the relationship between two points.
  • Orthogonal/Offset: specify a point using distance and offset from an existing line.
Input

Enter the required input for your chosen routine.

Calculate

Calculates the point based on the selected coordinate geometry routine and input.

Result

Displays the coordinates of the new point.

Zoom to the created point in the drawing window.

Report

For Inverse Report only: view the results of the inverse report.

Create Point

Create the point and close the COGO Input dialog box.

OK

For Inverse Report only: close the COGO Input dialog box.

Cancel

Close the COGO Input dialog box without creating a point.
