    "Magnetic compass" program
    From: Andrés Ruiz

    Hello,

    I have nearly ended a new release of the "Magnetic compass" program. I hope to make it available next week.

    I need a little help from my friends!, to  translate the variables used for the different types of courses (the tab CTS in the program).

    Magnetic compass

     

    Compas magnético

    Leeway angle

    Wind

    Abatimiento

    Drift angle

    Current

    Deriva

    CMG

     

    Rs = Rv + ab

    COG

    Course Over ground

    Rf = Rv + ab + der

    C

     

    Rumbo cuadrantal

    Cn

     

    Rumbo circular

    CC

    Compass course

    Ra

    Dev

    Deviation

    Desvío

    MC = CC + dev

    Magnetic course

    Rm = Ra + desvio

    Var

    Variation

    Dm

    Ct = dev + var

    total correction

    Ct = desvio + dm

    TC = MC + var

    True course

    Rv = Rm + dm = Ra + ct

    Variation

     

    Declinación magnética

    Deviation curve

     

    Curva de desvío

    CTS

    Course To Steer

    Rumbo



    For COG, I am not talking about the vector solution with drift and set


    best regards,
