Writis, a commenter on this very blog has created an app to aid the searcher who likes to use vectors when searching a particular site…
This app may not be for the geographicly challenged, but for those who use maps and lat/lon this can be very helpful in drawing an “x”on your good map.
It’s strength lays not only in its ability to calculate an “x” but also in it’s ability to create a spreadsheet so you can track your x’s, vectors and points.
What is a vector you ask…Read on. I’ll let Writis explain…
Called “Fenn Treasure X Tools” I decided to make it free, but limited to a 75 mile radius search area centered on Denver, then a one time in-app-purchase to unlock the full search area.
This way you can see how it works, and if you think it would be useful in your search.
Watch the video (and read the text) on how to use the app at the website:
(website has a link to the app in the app store)
I am really happy about how it came out, and how well it works. you can even visualize your “X” in the app.
I am excited to see some solutions show up here on Dal’s blog using the tool, and good luck in the search.
