NAME

xm_station - Station format for the Geotouch program

SYNOPSIS

xm_station - Input File Format

DESCRIPTION

There are 4 different station file formats allowable in
Geotouch. Files are checked prior to importation, so the for-
mats must be adhered to strictly.

You can get point files loaded by using the -R station_file
option.

If you use the -r station_file symbol each station file
will be plotted with corresponding symbol.

FORMAT

STATION file is organized on the UW format (university of Washington)

Can have Several Station Files input. Use: -R file1 -R file2.....
(R = Receiver)

The default station format (the one I use for most of my work) is:
Example:
Name lat. long. elevation(km)


0...|....1....|....2....|....3....|....4..(Card Column)
S1V 36N00.7852 117W48.1522 1.197
S1N 36N00.7852 117W48.1522 1.197
S1E 36N00.7852 117W48.1522 1.197
S2V 36N02.0210 117W47.3002 1.224

However, the program can read station files in 3 other formats:
These must be very RIGIDLY FORMATTED if Geotouch is to properly distinguish them.
Geotouch needs to see the fields in the correct card columns
so that it determine the incoming format.
Else all hell breaks loose.
This is done so the user does not have to specify
a format in advance, but the convention
must be adhered to rigidly!

NOTE:
You must insert an elevation. Use 0 if you do not have one.

Example follow:
