Tengraph (Web) Help

This tool allows you to accurately create a point along the boundary of a mining tenement or line drawn on the map.

In this example we want to create a point on the boundary of an exploration licence 400m from the corner.

Before you begin you will need to copy the exploration licence to the drawing layer ...

...and then explode the drawing into lines and points.

Open the Enhanced Plotting Tools menu and select Create Point on Line.

Using your mouse select the line you want the point plotted on.

The selected line is highlighted on the map display.

Then select a corner as the starting point.

Enter the disired distance and Select Calculate Point by Distance.

The plotted point's coordinate value is displayed in the panel.

Close the tool by Clicking on Cancel.
