Coordinate geometry refers to directions or bearings, angles, and horizontal distances that generally came from a topographic survey and that describe a series of consecutive lines. Those lines can be straight lines or simple curves and are named as courses or 2-point line. A course has only two vertices. The survey measurements that describe the courses can be stored in a traverse file in the context of ArcGIS. From the topography point of view, a traverse is a classical method for a detail topographic survey of an area. In ArcGIS, in a closed traverse, the consecutive lines start from a known point and end at the same or another known point. In...
