Practical Exercise #111. Convert Magnetic Azimuth 2. Determine Eight-Digit Grid Coordinates3. Measure Straight line distance4. Recognize Manmade Feature • An observer at the Crawford Mountain Lookout Tower, in grid square EG1887 sees a convoy parked on a light duty road. The magnetic azimuth from his position to the convoy is 260 degrees, a distance of 15,820 meters. What is the eight-digit coordinate of the convoy.
Answer • EG02509065 (+/- 50 meters) (+50 meters = EG02559070) ( -50 meters = EG02459060)
Practical Exercise #121.Convert Magnetic Azimuth 2. Find Unknown Location. • You are at the church of God in grid square EG0385 and observe an automobile accident on Interstate 5. The magnetic azimuth from your position to the cars is 331 degrees. What is the eight-digit coordinate of the accident?
Answer • EG02329010 (+/- 50 meters) (+ 50 meters = EG23379015) (- 50 meters = EG02279005)
Determine Unknown Location on Ground by Resection Step 1: Identify Two Or Three Distant Locations on the Ground and Mark them on the Map Step 2: Shoot a Magnetic Azimuth to the Distant Locations Step 3: Convert the Magnetic Azimuths to Grid Azimuths Step 4: Compute the Back Azimuths Remember: a. If Converted Grid Azimuth is less than 180 , add 180 . b. If Converted Grid Azimuth is more than 180, subtract 180
Practical Exercise #131.Locate Unknown Point on Ground by Resection • You are trying to determine your unknown location. You determine the magnetic azimuth to TV relay tower in grid square EG1287 to be 204 degrees and the magnetic azimuth to Crawford Mountain Lookout Tower in grid square EG1887 to be 129 degrees. What is your location to the nearest 50 meters?
Answer • EG15859120 (+/- 50 meters) + 50 meters = EG15909125 - 50 meters = EG15809115 (Did you remember to first add the G-M Angle, and then subtract or add 180 degrees?)
