In ArcGIS Pro when creating a new point, you can choose the option to create a point at the end of a line and use Direction and Distance. One of the options for direction is Quadrant Bearing (QB). This option is perfect for mapping locations based on a surveyed location for water right permits. Unfortunately, the quadrant bearing option is not available on the Distance and Direction widget in ArcGIS Online. Why? It is a pain to convert quadrant bearing to azimuth direction. We would like to develop a web map to check permit maps as they are initially reviewed by non-GIS personnel. Asking them to convert quadrant bearing to azimuth in a spreadsheet and then enter it into the web map is far from ideal. We would love to have a quadrant bearing option on the Distance and Direction widget in ArcGIS Online!
