This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Cogo Surveying is a surveying application that includes:
Points Database---> Import a .cogo points file or add points manually. Points form the database can be used in all the other modules by calling the point number with a comma in front of the point number.(ie ",pt105" in the easting field). Export to .csv and send via email. Select your delimiter in the About Tab
Plot Screen--> Display the points graphically from the point database. Zoom and pan the display.
Area By Coordinates---> Calculate the area of a shape with up to 20 sides. Points are stored in a table that is editable.
2 & 3 Point Arcs---> Create arcs from 2 points and a radius or with 3 points. Then divide the curve in equal parts.
Bearing Conversions----> Convert bearings from decimal to DMS and DMS to decimal.
Survey---> Convert field data into XYZ coordinates. Input Hz bearing , vertical bearing and slope distance to convert to coordinates.
Inverse---> Compute bearing and distance between coordinates.
Inverse List---> Compute bearing and distance from a single fixed point to all points in the database.
Traverse---> Calculate co-ordinates from bearing and distance of an occupied station. Bearings can be entered in DD.MMSS format or by using the separate fields.
Pt To Line---> Calculate the offset and chainage of a point from a line. Or Calculate coordinates by inputting chainage and offset.
Level Book---> A leveling sheet that allows the surveyor to input readings from a level run and compute elevations on the go. Export the data to a .csv file and send via Email. Never again get to the end of a loop without knowing if there has been a mistake made
Intersection By Points---> Calculate the coordinates of a point by intersecting lines with known coordinates. This program can project a line through when lines don't intersect.
Curve Calc---> Calculate the middle ordinate by knowing radius and chord length.
Notes---> Change between a light and dark theme, also set the delimiter for import and export.
Please leave feed back about any bugs or requested improvements. All comments are welcome even if they are bad. I would rather hear "your app is a steaming pile of s#&@" than nothing at all ;). As well as any comments about how this app is being used and what I can do to make it better.

What's New in Version 6.4
*Added a new Inverse module. "Inverse List" can compute bearings and distances form a single fixed point to all the points in the database
*Minor bugs fixed
Difficult to use, doesn't work as needed
I was looking for an app where I could capture current position or input some specific points and traverse to them. This is not it. It only allows a couple decimal positions. I would recommend against purchasing this app for surveying.
Do not buy
Carry the numbers out farther. Make it easier to plot.
Do not buy this whatever you do.
