AspEdit manual      Border dialog box

Purpose

Add / insert / edit a border segment.

Access

Functioning

  • At least one element must be defined before the border segment in the Area dialog box.  The last point of it will be used as the starting point of the segment.

  • The filter function allows reducing the number of shapes / countries in the list. All shapes / countries which have the filter string anywhere in their name will be listed.

  • Select the shape / country in the list.

  • Define the end point.  Either use the latitude and longitude fields to enter the values separately, or use the Lat / Lon field to enter both at once.
    • Tip: use the copy / paste function: copy the coordinates from the aeronautical publication, and paste them in the Lat / Lon field.
    • The format of the coordinates is permissive.  Also the separator between the latitude and longitude is permissive.
    • Always double check the result in the static field near the bottom.  eg. If the Lat / Lon field can't handle a separator, it may be required to paste latitude and longitude separately in the respective fields.

  • It is not required that the start and end points are located exactly on the shape.

  • For details on the Clockwise field, see Border segments.
    After leaving the Border dialog box, check the results on the map.
    If the wrong portion of the shape is used, invert the selection of "Clockwise".
