The Cultural Group at Golder needed aid in reproducing locations of geometic shapes based on data collected in the field and delivered in spreadsheet format. As part of a mitigation strategy for archaeological sites that are stone features, detailed maps are required. FME Desktop workbench uses bearing and distances to calculate vectors. Once the vector is created, a geometric shape (ovals, triangles and rectangles) is created at the endpoint based on length, width & area. Finally, the shape is rotated based on the bearing that is value mapped into a degree.
