A local system is a system defined for a survey that can be referenced back to a global system (UTM, State Plane) or to another local system.
Three scenarios are possible when dealing with local coordinate systems:
- Global to Local – When converting from a global to a local coordinate sytem, the global coordinates of the origin of the local coordinate system must be defined using the Local Origin button in the lower portion of the dialog. This dialog can also be used to enter the angle of rotation of the local coordinate axes relative to the global coordinate axes. The angle is measured ccw from the positive x-axis.
- Local to Local – When converting from one local coordinate system to another local coordinate system, the same approach is used as when converting from a global to local coordinate sytem. The Local Origin dialog is used to define the coordinates of the origin of the new coordinate system relative to the old coordinate system.
- Local to Global – When converting from a local to a global coordinate sytem, the Local Origin dialog is used to coordinates of the local coordinate system (which is the old system in this case) relative to the new global coordinate sytem.
