Help for INDIR

The INDIR Inverse-Direct computation tool performs either a geodetic direct or inverse computation. Direct uses a starting point's geographic coordinates, an azimuth and a distance to compute the geographic coordinates of the end point. Inverse uses geographic coordinates of two points to compute azimuth and distance.

Two coordinate systems are available: geographic and UTM/MTM/Stereo. All coordinate fields are required in the chosen coordinate system, except heights.
