Parcel Closure Report

This report uses the measured distances and bearings of each lot to compute the misclose.
The misclose is then distributed by a Bowditch adjustment and the lot area is calculated.

Parcels with True Mid Bearings
True mid bearings will be adjusted if:
1. The job Datum and Zone are setup.
2. The job centroid has been set up.
3. The "Mid Brgs" box is ticked in the Plan section of the Parcel properties menu.

The convergence for each True Mid Bearing is calculated on a line by line basis.
If the lot is joined and on a geodetic coordinate system, the starting coordinate is that of the first point in the close.
If the lot is unjoined or the job is on a "local" coordinate system, the job centroid (in job settings) is the starting coordinate.

As each parcel line is processed it calculates the end point approximately first.
It then uses the coordinates of the start and end points of that line to get the convergence using the full geodetic formula.
It then recalculates the end point of the line using the calculated true mid correction.

Setting the Job Centroid
If the job has control points, the job centroid will be determined from the control point coordinates.
If it is a new job, or does not have any control points, the centroid can be entered with Job Settings.

Select "Job Settings" from the file menu.
Press the "Set Job Centroid" button and the Job centroid dialogue will pop up.
If a centroid exists its coordinates will be displayed.
If the "Latitude/Longitude" box is ticked, the centroid data can be entered as a Latitude and Longitude.
