Apk file size: 457.0 KB
A handy calculator to determine the distance and bearing between to known co-ordinated points. Something that is used on a daily basis by site setting out engineers/land surveyors now available on your phone or tablet. So if your pre-programmed calculator has run out of battery or fallen in a puddle or you just left it at home you can still work away as if you had your trusty calculator.
All responsibility for checking results is with the engineer/surveyor and we cannot accept responsibility for any errors. Obviously!
Enjoy! More to come such as global grid to local grid converter.

David Ross I cannot believe that Google allowed this application to be distributed on its website. It's a worthless application, except possibly for an earth that's flat. But we discovered about 600 years ago that the earth is round; and, when we instituted the geographic coordinate system of Latitudes and Longitudes to determine locations, we knew from the outset that the distance between Longitudes would get smaller as you approached the poles. But Joe Scrivens must have been sleeping when that obvious fact was discussed, because his application fails to account for the fact that the earth is more-or-less round. What does this mean? Well, Joe's application calculates the distance from Iceland to Norway to be 1366 NM when, in fact, it's only about 574 NM. The world is round, Joe, and the distance between longitudes is MUCH smaller as you approach the poles. You apparently don't know that, and you have failed to account for it in your formulas. Consequently, both your distance and bearing formulas are VERY wrong.
John asbury Great app. Replicates rec and pol on calculator for working out bearings and distances for setting out. Over 90% of setting out within building and civil engineering is flat. We don't build curved floors to our offices. Something the other reviewer doesn't appear to comprehend.
