Some screens may have changed slightly since this posting but are functionally the same. Scrolling may be required to view the screen shots in their entirety. PDA screen shots follow the desktop series.
Below is the startup screen. Instructions to get started by opening a file is displayed, together with other information for first time users. Note the check box on the left has been selected. It acts as a toggle.
This screen (Embedded) appears after closing the opening screen and selecting a file. Here the "Cogo Routines" menu displays various routines that may be chosen. Commonly used ones may also be selected from the button bar.
The Embedded screen also is where bearing-distance traverse, inverse and several intersection problems may be run. New files may also be opened from here. The information could also be sent to the printer for a scaled printer plot. Note the different displays for inverse and the point protect feature.
The next shot shows the Area routine. The points defining the figure are entered in the long box. Curves are handled as shown in the on screen instructions and in the display. Note that either feet or meters may be used. If meters is checked the display would show square meters and hectares.
Next is a screen shot of the LotPlot routine. It plots a figure without coordinates and may be used to plot legal descriptions. This example used a traverse that forced a closure from the last point to the first by entering the letter "C" in the bearing box. The closure information could also have been obtained by entering the word "close" rather than "C" as the last entry. Note the annotation on the traverse lines.
Below is the interactive plotting screen. Existing points are shown for which you can plot lines, show the point's ID, compute an area by clicking the points, run a traverse, etc. This routine has been improved since this posting.
Below is only one of several curve routines. It allows you to enter the necessary data to calculate the information for any curve by entering 2 of the curve elements. The unknowns are computed and displayed.
Below is the Import screen where you import an ascii file from another source such as a data collector. Export is similar.
Below is a screen shot of the Field (angle-distance) traverse. In this routine you primarily enter angles and distances although you may also carry elevations and descriptors. It may be either a closed or open traverse. When you complete it you close the traverse and obtain the closure information as shown on the bottom of the screen. You may also edit your entries if you find there has been an error.
Below is the Mapcheck routine. Courses are displayed as they are entered, including curve information. At the end, the word "close" is entered in the "bearing" box to signal closing the figure and displaying the closure error and area. Editing after closure may also be done.
The final screen shot below is the stakeout routine. Points to be set from occupied and sighted points are displayed with angles and distances.
Following are 3 cogo4android screen shots from the emulator:
The first is the opening screen with the various options
This is the menu from which a routine is selected. It is very much like the other handheld versions.
The last is the bearing-distance traverse screen with typical entries prior to execution
The following are screen shots of PalmCogo and PocketCogo taken from emulators. All are from the more recent version of both programs. Note: MobileCogo is replacing PocketCogo and screen shots will be forthcoming. They are similar to those shown for PocketCogo.
