ASCS Maps point registered are skewed

Search Discussion Boards
Kelly,
One thing to check is that when you register the points, make sure that you do not have Grid Snap, Mid Point or End Point on. If you do, you may not be registering the point exactly where you are clicking.

Also, when registering the three points, try to get three points that form a right-triangle. The closer to a right-triangle that the three points form, the more accurate the calibration will be.

Also, try to pick three points that are a fair distance apart. If the three points are close together, the calibration will not be as accurate as if they are farther apart.

Other than this, the calibrated maps normally are close to the roads and waterways but they will not be perfect. First of all the Road and Waterway maps are not exact. They can be off as much as 50 feet from a true GPS reading. Also ASCS maps can have errors in them.

If the roads and waterways don't line up, you can use the Edit Points tool to move them so that they do line up with the calibrated map.

I hope this helps!
