GPS local transformation

Post by dustydude » Fri May 05, 2006 11:22 am

I'm getting my base transformed to the local coordinates system, but having trouble adding a second point for rotation, checking in to a known point, etc. What am step am I missing?

Hi, when you shoot the second point, make sure to enable the option "Use for Local Transformation" before storing the shot. This will cause FieldGenius to look at it's pre-localized (UTM, State Plane, etc) coordinates, then immediately ask for the corresponding control point, and add this to the transformation setup.
