• Member advised to use the homework template for posts in the homework sections of PF.
1) Plot given coordinates on layout supplied and label them accordingly. The scale on the layout is 1” = 20 ‘.
2) Using the given tope data, draw the level plan on the layout.

The station coordinates and topping data are available in the excel file enclosed.

Hello NR,

You still have to adapt to the culture ehre at PF. Use the template and read the guidelines ...

(Also: not clear to me what you are asking, what you have done so far, where you are stuck in this exercise!)

Hello, I have seen the templates and would have love to provide what I have done so far however this is course that I started late and I am completely lost in it.
I am at first stuck in the coordinates plotting. I don't understand why these coordinates are eastern and northern.

In that case you'll have to catch up some way or other. Textbook, course notes from others, whatever (template explanation?).
I have no idea what this is about or the meaning of this notation. What are the units ? Furlongs ?
What does the 'given layout' look like ?

This was returned as the first search result from the above search:

The terms easting and northing are geographic Cartesian coordinates for a point. Easting refers to the eastward-measured distance (or the x-coordinate), while northing refers to the northward-measured distance (or the y-coordinate).

First result for anyone (including me): Easting and northing is clear: gives you the directions; but we still need units. Rod ?
