GPScalc Publisher's Description

Palmgear Description

Application Description:

Supports PalmOS V5

GPScalc allows you to calculate distances to within 1 cm accuracy between your GPS position fixes. This is based on the condition that start and end points fall within the same UTM zone and the distance between points is less than 1000m. Otherwise, for greater distances it can still calculate within 0.5% accuracy.

GPScalc is a calculator to convert between geodetic longitude and latitude to UTM eastings and northings and to calculate distance and headings between waypoints with great accuracy.

Some of the features of GPScalc :

  • Input style can be ddd.dddddddddd, ddmm.mmmmmmmm or ddmmss.ssssss
  • Output results can be Metric (meters), statute (miles), or nautical (sea miles)
  • Built in database to save and recall waypoints
  • Supports about 38 user selectable ellipsoids to use in conversions
  • Converts Lat/Long to UTM or UTM to Lat/Long
  • Converts Lat/Long to Swiss Grid or Swiss Grid to Lat/Long
  • Resolution is 1 mm and accuracy is better than 1 cm.
  • Supports Copy-and-Paste between fields.
  • Conversion results can be exported to the PalmOS notepad utility.
  • User can choose between four different Heading/Distance measurement methods. These are:
    • Geodetic Method - Results are equivalent to those calculated by the U.S. National Geodetic Survey reference programs.
    • Haversine Method - Results are equivalent to those given by GPS devices with built in Heading/Distance functions.
    • Rhumb line Method - Results are equalvalent to those often used in aeronautical and maritime navigation.
    • Pythagorean Method - Gives results equivalent to those obtained with line-of-sight surveying equipment like laser range finders.

NavCalc - Navigational Calculator to do calculate distance and heading between waypoint. This application can also calculate the coordinates of a second or third point if certain parameters of the other two are already know.

GPS Acreage - Use your Palm and a GPS to do surveying (calculate surface area for real estate of any shape of size). If you have a serial connection between your NMEA enabled GPS and your PDA, then it will automatically log readings from the GPS unit. Otherwise you can also manually enter the cooridinates of corner points.
