11/14/2017 - Tested with WAB 2.5. Updated default linesymbol drawing to a solid line as export/import as GeoJSON had issues with a short dash line.

12/06/2016 - Added warning to user when changing distance unit type or angle type when the traverse has courses
      Popups were disabled to prevent display when drawing courses

      Logic was added to allow the user to key in a file name when saving a traverse, GeoJSON or a report
12/02/2016 - Fixed problem that was preventing widget use in projections other than Web Mercator


The traverse widget allows you to create, edit and save a geographic shape based on bearing and distance measurements.  Course degrees can be entered in decimal degrees or degree minute second formats. Course angles can be quadrants or north azimuth angles. Course distances can be in a variety of units. The traverse can be rotated around the start point.  Traverse areas and closures will always be calculated. Once created the traverse can be saved a GeoJSON shape or saved in a structure compatible with ArcMap CoGo  or ParcelFabric. Saved traverse files can be loaded and used at a later time.

The creation of this widget was a collaboration between myself an Dean Anderson from Polk County, Oregon.
