Reporting a Traverse's Closure

First, it summarizes the current traverse, or a portion of the current traverse and shows.  See Checking Traverse Closure.

 In terms of TPC's many reports, you can think of this as a Closure Report.

What kind of closure is currently being used

What adjustment rule is selected

What errors exist in the traverse

A summary of the length and area, if appropriate

A summary of the closing points

Adjusting a Traverse's Coordinates

Second, it provides the tools for balancing the entire traverse or a portion of the traverse and will.  See Adjusting a Traverse.

Balance coordinates

Balance angles

Correct for curvature and refraction

Apply a scale factor

Undo the last adjustment

Choose a different adjustment rule

Select different portions of a traverse to balance

By now, you have probably noticed that of your data -- all the time. The Closure View is no exception. You see how the errors are computed, and you decide what gets balanced and how.

Closure Types

You can set the closure type by choosing Edit | Closure Settings and left clicking the Closure type tab.

Distance and Direction Types

The Closure View displays data based on the Distance and Direction types selected for that traverse. The types are listed immediately under the Closure View heading at the top.

Distance Units

The distance units displayed in the Closure View are determined by the traverse units.  You set these in the Advanced tab of the Traverse View Format dialog.
