Hi all!
Simple question I hope: I'm setting out areas of land and need to create new point features at specific distances and bearings from existing point features. How can I do this?
Many thanks in advance
regards from Robert, Melbourne

    You can use the Create Distance/Bearing Line feature in the Digitizer Tool to create a line from the start point to other points some distance and bearing from the start point. If you just need the points you could then select the created line(s), then right-click and select the Advanced Feature Creation option to create points along the line and just create points at the vertex locations.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
