Introductory compass and pacing field surveying application

This tool assists traverse survey exercise data collection, graphing, and error illustration.

While the activity focuses on the use of compasses and pacing to measure angle and distance, other tools could be used.

The contribution of this tool aims to ease the graphing and illustration of error in traverse surveying. This exercise should not replace the process of practising trigonometric calculations and graphing data, but supplement it. See suggested uses for the tool in the Help tab.

The exercise also covers magnetic declination. All the survey data can be exported into a GIS using the Export function.
