M E M O R A N D U M___________________ TO: W. Lynn Beason, Ph.D., P.E. Instructor CVEN 489, Spring 2010 FROM: Garrett Lucas 317009025 DATE: 2/19/10 RE: Lab 3 _____________________________________________________________________________ _______ There are ways to map from global spherical coordinates to local Cartesian coordinates and vice versa. By using a Matlab function, we can convert the given longitude and latitude coordinates to the Texas central plane zone coordinates. Once converted, the points will be mapped to determine whether these points fall inside the city limits of Wixon Valley, Texas. This memo will determine which points were near Wixon Valley and contains a graph of where they exist. At the beginning of this lab, way points were loaded into matlab using a dat file. From here, these points were converted to degrees and stored as northing and easting points. Once completed a file was used to create random points which were then converted to state plane coordinates. After converting, both were plotted on a graph to determine which points lie near Wixon Valley, Texas as seen in Figure 1.
