Can Inkscape plot survey data at present? What I mean is: Can we lay down a line A to B with a distance in say metres and a bearing relative to North vertical and plotted clockwise? And then a line B to C etcetera. The sort of data it would be valuable to plot are: Point Point Distance (metres or scaled) Bearing (angle clockwise in degrees from vertical) A B 12.5 25 B C 4.3 328 C D 16.7 85 D E 8.6 45.2 To do this we need lines to be drawn in terms of distance and angle rather than what appears to be the current X and Y positions of the point. Maybe this can be set at present. If so I cannot find it Another use of this would be to obtain distance and bearing between two points from a map scan. Again a very useful result which may already be possible. Any help here? I seem to remember that at some very early stage in Inkscape this was possible.......sort of....but I cannot find it now. I'll put it in as a request but thought I'd ask first. Erik
