NAD27 UTM in “FAST Survey” and “SurvCE”

SurvCE (and FAST Survey) don’t have NAD27 UTM projections built-in. So if you are working with an older dataset (like Oil and Gas) you are going to need to enter a new projection manually.

Here is how to set up for NAD27 Zone 12:

Make a new job, be sure to select ‘Meters’ (unless you want US Survey Feet or International Feet.)

0

 

Click on ‘Edit Projection List

0B

Press the ‘Add User Defined’ button.

2

Configure to match as above. (You will need to adjust the C. Meridian to match your UTM Zone.) Then click the ‘New Datum’ button.

3

Configure to match as above.

Click the ‘Green Check Mark’ four times to return to the main menu.

Let’s check our new projection:

Now click on ‘COGO, Calculator, Conversion and put the dot in LLH->Grid’

5

Enter the lat and lon as shown above. If you entered everything correctly, then the computed Northing and Easting will be as shown.

You are now ‘Good To Go!’
