PROBLEM: Find a new point's latitude/longitude given the starting point's latitude/longitude and the polar offset (bearing:degrees-minutes-seconds and distance: xx.xx feet) from that known point.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My property description is given in bearing/distance from a known point. I can find the known point's latitude/longitude.

I need to calculate a new point's latitude/longitude given the distance (xx.xx ft) and bearing (degrees-minutes-seconds) from the known point.

This will enable me to find/approximate my property's borders using my portable gps unit.

A formula will do. An online calculator would be great.
