Key Learning

  • Find and utilize the "hidden" COGO tools
  • Recreate deeds better and more accurately
  • Use the COGO Editor
  • Use the Mapcheck Analysis tools

Description

Description

See how easy it is to input data in the Coordinate Geometry Editor and run results and reports from one simple interface. Some deeds require a lot more input than the typical tools will allow, so one of the only ways to recreate some deeds is by using this COGO Editor. We will also explore some other useful COGO tools. The Mapcheck Analysis tools are a great way of checking things as well, so we will review how to use that tool.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Project Manager/Engineer, End User, Anyone who does deed recreation, construction documentation input, or survey features; basic AutoCAD® knowledge is good, but not required
