Programming

SEGPS

Often we do only measure start and end coordinates of geophysical profiles because we are in a hurry and time is short in the field. Later during data procesing we need UTM coordinates of every profile point. I programmed a little tool to solve this problem. You can download SE_GPS for free here.


The program is based on Excel and allows to calculate both linear and circular profiles:
Download SE_GPS

Latest version

Version 4.0 also allows to calculate distances from any tracked profiles in relation to the start (or any other) point.
