Decimal places

Post by bobL » Thu Jun 23, 2005 5:08 am

When entering a northing and easting in FG2005, the program rounds
the number to two decimal places. Is there any way to change the settings for this to allow more than two places?

If the project is in feet, it defaults to two places. Metric projects default to three. Note: This is rounding the coordinate for displaying only, internally in the database the coordinates are stored with higher precision.

A future version of FieldGenius will allow you to specify how many decimal places you want to display for your coordinates.
