Hello everyone. I’m brand new to Emlid and have what I hope will be an easy question to answer. Here is my situation:
As a personal project, I want to search for a section corner near me that has been lost to time- 118 years’ worth of time in fact. Using a record map, I have calculated three points with record distances on assumed coordinates along the section line; two of which I’m sure I can recover, and the third being the monument I’m looking for. I have imported these points into Emlid Flow, and of course being assumed coordinates, these points cannot be staked out.
My question is this: How do I tie in the two monuments I am going to use to search for the section corner if I cannot stake out the points in the app? Can I assign coordinates to the monuments, or get them onto a known coordinate system when observing them, and upon doing so will the result be that I can then run out the calculated record distance to the section corner that is stored as a previously calculated point? I hope that makes sense.
Thank you very much in advance!
