Inputs:

  • XLS(X) file - MS Excel file containing the explicaton report;

  • Latitude of an anchor point. This value is specified in the coordinate system EPSG 4326. Use dot as a separator between the integer part and the fractional part;

  • Longitude of an anchor point. This value is specified in the coordinate system EPSG 4326. Use dot as a separator between the integer part and the fractional part.

Note

Due to inaccuracies in measuring angles and distances on the ground, the first point of the output polygon may be farther from the last one than on the ground. As a rule, the difference does not exceed 2-3 meters.
