= Calculating Lever Arms =
Data usually goes in ~arsf/arsf_data/YYYY/misc/plane_survery_/
Stirling Surveys usually provide two things:
* *coordinates.xls - a spreadsheet giving the xyz of each point
* dornier_228_*.(dwg|pdf) - a digram of all the points in space
The coordiantes are relative to the rear gps antennae and are positive up, to port and to nose.
The file working_out.txt shows the logic and calculations I used to get the final values that go on the wiki.
The spreadsheet calculate_leverarms.ods has the formulas used above in-built, so you can put the new survey values into it and it will calculate the values to go on the wiki for you (make sure to use a copy from the most recent survery so it has the Owl for instance).
