    Re: Pointless? Optimisation - Intercept Plotting
    From: Tony Oz
    Date: 2019 Feb 4, 01:47 -0800

    Hello!

    I'm following the discussion with an interest.

    One thing still is not yet clear - the scale to use as an intercept distance can not be placed on the protractor directly - because that scale depends on the latitude. Do you do an extra calculation - to convert the T|A miles into the millimeters on the protractor's (DIY) scale?

    Could you please elaborate on that a bit more?

    Thank you in advance.

    Regards,

    Tony
