Bearing and Distance Recall

Suppose you want to set a point halfway along a boundary line between points 10 and 11.

  1. Start the Traverse command.
  2. For the horizontal angle, enter "10-11".
  3. For the horizontal distance, enter "10-11/2".
  4. Finish the rest of the traverse command. The point will be set as desired.


On line 2 we told LotPlot to use the bearing from point 10 to point 11. On line 3 we told LotPlot to take the distance from point 10 to point 11, and then divide it by 2.
