Some screens may have changed slightly since this posting but are functionally the same. Scrolling may be required to view the screen shots in their entirety. Mobile screen shots follow the desktop series.
Below is the startup screen. Instructions to get started by opening a file are displayed, together with other information for first time users. Note the check box on the left has been selected. It acts as a toggle.
Below is what is called the "Embedded" screen. It appears after closing the opening screen and selecting a file. Here the "Cogo Routines" menu displays various routines that may be chosen. Commonly used ones may also be selected from the button bar.
The Embedded screen is also where bearing-distance traverse, inverse and several intersection problems may be run. New files may also be opened from here. The information could also be sent to the printer for a scaled printer plot. Note the different displays for inverse and the point protect feature.
The next shot shows the Area routine. The points defining the figure are entered in the long box. Curves are handled as shown in the on screen instructions and in the display. Note that either feet or meters may be used. If meters is checked the display would show square meters and hectares.
Next is a screen shot of the LotPlot routine. It plots a figure without coordinates and may be used to plot legal descriptions. This example uses a traverse that forced a closure from the last point to the first by entering the letter "C" in the bearing box. The closure information could also have been obtained by entering the word "close" rather than "C" as the last entry. Note the annotation (optional) on the traverse lines.
Below is only one of several curve routines. It allows you to enter the necessary data to calculate the information for any curve by entering 2 of the curve elements. The unknowns are computed and displayed.
