Transform Features

Gone are the days of switching back and forth between two different surveys to perform comparative inverses in an effort to determine which of the monuments found on-the-ground most closely match the mathematical positions described by a prior survey.

Transform gives you the freedom to test any number of different point-pair combinations by simply setting or clearing a check box.

(a point pair is typically the mathematical position of a point from a prior survey its corresponding point found and located on-the-ground.)

Each time a pair is made or cleared, Transform instantly produces a new statistical solution allowing you to test any number of scenarios within a matter of minutes, making Transform the most powerful transformation tool available.

each new solutions instantly produces
The pair's residual (error), based upon the current set of paired points
The 2 sigma (95%) confidence interval for the solution
The statistically most-probable difference in meridians between the two surveys and its precision
The statistically most-probable difference in unit-length between the two surveys and its precision  
The translation north and translation east and their respective precisions  
The statistically most-probable (theoretical) position for every point in the transformed system
The positional uncertainty (95% error ellipse) for each theoretical point in the transformed system
The transformed coordinate values needed to unify the two coordinate systems
 Additional features of Transform
